Common Criteria is an independent security certification recognized by governments in more than 26 countries, including the United States. Certification is granted when a Common Criteria testing laboratory, such as EWA-Canada, determines that a product meets a defined measure of security. The certification addresses product functionality, development environment, documentation and product testing measures.
"CA continues to support Common Criteria evaluations as a measurement of security capabilities," said Bill Clark, vice president, Public Sector Technical Sales, CA Technologies. "We understand the importance of third-party assurance, such as this certification, and are proud to have our identity and access management portfolio so well-represented on the certified products list."
