Trend Micro announced that its advanced server and virtualization security solution, Deep Security achieved Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 4 augmented (EAL 4+) certification under the Canadian Common Criteria Evaluation and Certification Scheme.
EAL 4+ is the highest assurance level that is recognized globally. As a result, government agencies that require the use of Common Criteria certified products can be assured that the specification, implementation and evaluation of Deep Security has been conducted in a rigorous and standardized manner to meet their security and compliance needs.
All five of the Deep Security protection modules on all supported platforms were certified including: Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX and on VMware vSphere. Both the Deep Security Virtual Appliance and in-guest Agent-based technologies were included in the certification process.
Deep Security was also certified for FIPS 197, FIPS 180-3 and FIPS 186-3 standards as part of this process corresponding to AES, SHA-1/SHA-256 and RSA cryptographic algorithms – respectively.
Government agencies, and companies held to the highest security standards, require FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) certification of enterprise security products.
Deep Security is a server security platform for physical, virtual and cloud servers and offers the industry’s first agentless security suite for VMware environments, comprising agentless anti-malware, integrity monitoring, firewall, intrusion prevention and web application protection.
