Module Added to Short List of Products Qualified to Protect Sensitive Government and Military Information

ORLANDO, Fla. – API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) ("API" or the "Company"), a leading provider of high performance RF/microwave, power, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, announced today that its Common Cryptographic Module has been validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NISTs) Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2.

This standard's validation assures the U.S. Department of Defense, and its agencies, that API's Common Cryptographic Module meets the rigorous security requirements for government and military use. Only modules tested and validated to FIPS 140-2 (and its predecessor FIPS 140-1) meet the applicability requirements to protect sensitive information.

API's Common Cryptographic Module is integrated into its ION Networks™ line of secure access technology including the ION™ SA5600-IA appliance for remote vendor and third party access to voice and IT systems, as well as the Netgard® MFD CAC/PIV authentication solution for networked printers, scanners, and copiers.

Henry Gold, general manager, SSIA-US, API Technologies said, "The Common Cryptographic Module for our ION and Netgard products is a standards-based cryptographic engine for servers and appliances. The module delivers core cryptographic functions and features robust algorithm support including AES (Advanced Encryption Standard). With the FIPS 140-2 validation, our DoD customers are assured that our cryptography has been tested to the stringent criteria of the U.S. government."

Secure Systems and Information Assurance (SSIA) products by API Technologies provide security for both government and commercial customers worldwide. Featured product lines include the EMCON® (USA & Canada) and SST™ (Europe) brands, the Netgard® line of security and encryption products, and the ION Networks™ line of network security devices for remote device management.
