FIPS 140-2 validation is the cryptography standard required by the US federal government for protection of sensitive data. It covers 11 areas of its cryptographic security system, including physical security, cryptographic key management and design integrity.

Drives Validated to the FIPS 140-2 specification are required to be used by U.S. government branches as well as civilian companies in the US, Canada and the United Kingdom that contract to the US government.

Additionally governments and public companies worldwide in the education, healthcare, and financial services industries have adopted using FIPS 140-2 validated drives as the regulations requiring their use is continuously expanding. Enterprises that wish to use the strongest encryption available have also adopted using FIPS 140-2 drives as it's widely known how stringent the testing is to receive this level of certification.
