Common Criteria EAL2+
The Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation is an international standard for computer security certification managed by 30 member countries. WipeDrive Enterprise obtained EAL 2+ certification on a data erasure security target and received evaluation by a Common Criteria certified lab. This rigorous certification is the most comprehensive certification currently available.
What Does This Certification Mean?Since 1998, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Security Agency (NSA), in cooperation and collaboration with the U.S. State Department, worked closely with their partners in the CC Project to produce a mutual recognition arrangement for IT security evaluations. U.S. Government and its foreign partners in the arrangement share the following objectives with regard to evaluations of IT products and protection profiles:
- Ensure that evaluations of IT products and protection profiles are performed to high and consistent standards and are seen to contribute significantly to confidence in the security of those products and profiles.
- Increase the availability of evaluated, security-enhanced IT products and protection profiles for national use.
- Eliminate duplicate evaluations of IT products and protection profiles.
- Continuously improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of security evaluations and the certification/validation process for IT products and protection profiles.
