From Business Wire

CA have announced that three of its security management solutions have achieved Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 3 certification from the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS). This level of security certification independently validates the quality and efficacy of these three CA solutions.

Common Criteria is an internationally recognised security certification required by the U.S. and other governments worldwide for departments and agencies seeking to procure commercial products. Common Criteria certification also assures businesses that a product meets a standard measure of security, whether it is used internally or in solutions for customers. CA’s security management products are certified for the EAL 3 level of the Common Criteria scheme, as defined by ISO/IEC 15408-2 and ISO/IEC 15408-3 – which address product functionality, development environment, documentation, and product testing measures.

CA completed its Common Criteria evaluation and certification through Cygnacom Solutions’ Common Criteria Testing Laboratory. which is  a one-stop provider of comprehensive standards-based security testing and evaluation services for IT and cryptographic products.  CygnaCom performed the evaluations in accordance with the NIAP’s Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme.
