FIPS compliance basically sets the standard for PC security and encryption, if it’s not FIPS compliant you shouldn’t use it to store any information.

For a really boring read – you can check out FIPS compliance here:


If you are still using an XP workstation or laptop, we suggest you take another look at your data – if you are in business and store any client information or a personal nature, you need to migrate to Windows 7 as soon as possible.

Let us know and we can help mitigate the struggle for you!
