LONDON -- MessageLabs, the leading provider of messaging and web security services to businesses worldwide, today announced that the MessageLabs Anti-Virus service Version 5.1 has received the UK Government's Central Sponsor for Information Assurance (CSIA) Claims Tested (CCT) Mark for the second consecutive year.
The CCT Mark scheme provides accredited independent testing on services and off-the-shelf products, enabling the public sector to have added confidence and assurance that its chosen information security products and services meet preferred standards.
In addition to the CCT Mark, the MessageLabs Anti-Virus service has also received the West Coast Labs' Checkmark Anti-Malware certification, only awarded to products and services which have successfully passed and continue to satisfy the requirements of all three of the West Coast Labs' Checkmark Anti-Virus, Anti-Trojan and Anti-Spyware certification categories. With test facilities in the US and UK, West Coast Labs is an accredited test laboratory for the CCT Mark scheme.
"As security has a direct impact on every part of a business including reputation, productivity and business continuity, the decision regarding which service or product to choose and trust is a critical one. The CCT Mark scheme provides the government and businesses with certainty in their choice of security and confidence in its capabilities," said Adrian Chamberlain, CEO, MessageLabs. "We were the first managed service to be acknowledged by this rigorous quality testing scheme and these awards further confirm our continuous commitment to superior services and standards."
