Checklist

Meet compliance standards

It’s not a coincidence that 4/5 of big banks and US Federal agencies use Tectia. Many regulations, such as PCI-DSS and FIPS 140-2 require strong encryption for compliance. This is why Tectia supports X.509 PKI authentication, uses FIPS 140-2 certified cryptography, and supports smartcards, including U.S. Federal Government Personal Identity Verification (PIV) and Common Access Cards (CAC).
