How is data secured in Unified Workspace

Some customers have asked if Unified Workspace is FIPS Certified and specifically FIPS 140-2.  Being FIPS  certified means that your software uses FIPS  certified cryptographic modules and has been verified by one of the approved NIST laboratories.  UW uses many different packages from many different companies and open source groups and each customer had different needs and configurations which may or may not need certain ciphers and protocols enabled/disabled that may go against the FIPS certification / compliancy.  Some packages that UW implements is FIPS compliant, for example,  OPENSSL
