Applied Data Systems Receives Top Secret Clearance

10/11/2004 - Applied Data Systems (ADS), a leading developer of ARM-based application-ready embedded systems, received facility clearance at the top-secret level. This clearance is an important part of ADS' security initiatives.

Through its new program - ADSi or ADS Security Initiative - ADS can selectively adopt design standards and third party software to meet enhanced security objectives in line with the FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) guidelines for both Linux and Windows CE systems. In addition to the Federal and defense markets, ADS' security initiatives are important for banking ATM's, secure PDA/messaging, retail Point of Sale, and medical devices.

ADS works directly with federal agencies and government contractors to provide the higher levels of security used within the DoD. As part of ADSi, ADS has established commercial relationships with various security consultants and NIST-qualified labs for conformance testing according to FIPS or "Common Criteria" standards. An important aspect of ADS' program is the expertise the company has at the hardware and software interface. This lets the customer select either a hardware or a software solution for a particular security challenge and makes the ADS' systems cost-effective.
