This certification resulted from more than twelve months’ testing conducted by Computer Sciences Canada, Inc., one of the accredited Common Criteria testing laboratories.
Common Criteria IT Security Evaluation certification is required by most US federal government agencies and the Department of Defense to put into production new security technologies on the endpoint. Invincea’s secure virtual container technology was certified across a range of functionality, including: preventing Web-based threats and weaponized documents from damaging the endpoint or accessing data; automatically killing suspicious endpoint processes; and providing rich forensic intelligence on attempted attacks.
“The cyber threats facing the United States, both criminal and nation-state, are more pronounced and persistent than ever,” noted Rand Beers, former Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. “All sectors of the economy require the most advanced technology available to combat these threats, with the assurance that products will perform effectively and reliably in mission-critical environments. Invincea’s Common Criteria certification marks a significant milestone in the industry’s effort to secure governments and corporations against advanced attacks and is a solid proof point in a sea of marketing claims from the security industry.”
The Common Criteria IT Security Evaluation certification program was established by the National Information Assurance Partnership to “provide assurance that the Common Criteria process of specification, implementation and evaluation of IT products has been conducted in a rigorous, standard, achievable, repeatable and testable manner at a level that is commensurate with the target environment for use.”
