Common criteria certification to meet the safety requirements of authorities
Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), a leading global provider of cyber security solutions, is proud to announce the successful completion of a new Common Criteria (CC) certification. This achievement represents an important recognition of Check Point’s ability to meet or exceed the security requirements of the 31 nations that are members of the Common Criteria Recognition Agreement (CCRA). Purchasing decisions by governments and closely related industries, including critical infrastructure, often require common criteria certification.
Certification is recognized by authorities around the world as a standard for validating safety claims of products before purchase. It provides the criteria for independent, scalable and globally recognized security audits of IT products. The new CC Protection Profile certification complements the previous Check Point CC EAL4+ certification and reaffirms Check Point’s commitment to maintaining the highest security standard required by governments worldwide.
“These certifications highlight Check Point’s ability to protect global enterprises and comply with the new recognized standards for protecting and securing IT infrastructure and information, while providing the secure services necessary for business operations,” said Eyal Manor, vice president of product management at Check Point: “Check Point is focused on providing innovative solutions that meet and exceed the requirements to ensure the highest level of security worldwide.“
Cyber threats are becoming more sophisticated and more difficult to detect. Check Point Quantum Network Security offers highly scalable protection against Generation V IT attacks on the corporate network, the cloud, the data center, the IoT and remote users. The certification confirms compliance with three protection profiles and applies to all Check Point Quantum Network Security appliances, including Quantum Maestro, R81 Management platform and CloudGuard Network.
