Application Security seeeks Common Criteria Certification
Application Security, Inc. is pursuing Common Criteria certification for the current versions of its flagship products — AppDetective, a vulnerability assessment scanner, and the AppSecInc Console for AppDetective, a centralized management solution — through the Accredited Testing and Evaluation Labs of Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) in Columbia, Md. The certification will extend AppSecInc’s momentum within the public sector by demonstrating compliance with strict U.S. Government criteria and exacting International Standards Organization requirements.
“In some ways, the federal government is leading the charge to effectively extend security best practices to the database application level,” said Ted Julian, vice president of marketing and strategy for AppSecInc. “With Common Criteria certification of AppDetective and the AppSecInc Console, a wide range of government agencies can more easily extend security best practices to the crown jewels, documenting continuous improvement, and ensuring prompt incident response.”
