atsec information security is proud to announce that Astaro Corporation’s Astaro Security Gateway V6.300 has received the coveted Common Criteria certification from the German Federal Office for Information Security, BSI. This certification will serve to assure customers, including those within the government sector, that Astaro’s systems and processes have been successfully tested by an independent and accredited evaluation laboratory, and conform to IT security standards sanctioned by the International Standards Organization.
Common Criteria for IT Security Evaluation (CC), also known as ISO standard 15408, was collectively developed by the national security organizations of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and the Netherlands. It is a standard for evaluating the security features and capabilities of information technology products and is accepted by many countries around the globe.
atsec information security, an independent CC laboratory with many years of experience in Common Criteria evaluation, thoroughly scrutinised the Astaro Security Gateway during a rigorous evaluation phase after BSI had accepted the product into evaluation in November 2005.
The Common Criteria certificate has been issued for Astaro Security Gateway V6.300, which runs on all Astaro appliances, as well as on Intel-compatible servers.
