LifeSize Communications Supports Government Security and Interoperability Standards

Jul 24, 2009 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- LifeSize Communications, a company involved in high definition video communications, announced support for government security and interoperability standards, expanding the scope of Federal Government network installations on which LifeSize HD video communications systems can be deployed.

According to officials, LifeSize also has been awarded a United States General Services Administration (GSA) contract, enabling the company to do business directly with the Federal Government through the GSA Information Technology (IT) Schedule 70.

Among LifeSize's new security credentials, the LifeSize Cryptographic Security Kernel has been placed on the In Process Listing for the Federal Information Processing Standards Publications (FIPS) 140-2 Validation: Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules. Additionally, LifeSize has been validated by an independent lab to meet the Federal mandates for IPv6 interoperability on government agency networks, and also has been placed on the Department of Defense's (DoD) Unified Capabilities (UC) for Video Conferencing equipment testing schedule to obtain an interoperability and information assurance certification from the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC).

"HD video communications is a critical component to insuring globally dispersed government teams maintain effective, timely communications," said Craig Malloy, CEO and founder, LifeSize Communications, Inc. "LifeSize is fully committed to delivering best in class HD collaboration solutions to our government customers. We are pleased to extend the accessibility of our solutions to more organizations throughout the Federal government, in support of agency objectives and mandates." "Our support for the stringent FIPS 140-2, IPv6 and JITC certification enables more civilian and DoD agencies to benefit from the superior HD video communications experience," said Adam Taylor, executive vice president of sales and customer services at LifeSize Communications.
