Check Point once again achieves the internationally recognized Common Criteria certification for its Quantum security solutions including gateways, firewalls and cybersecurity management platforms. Common Criteria certification plays a critical role in validating cybersecurity products and is required by key governments and enterprises around the globe before they purchase or implement security solutions.
What is Common Criteria?
Common Criteria is the basis for government-led IT product certification processes for over thirty nations around the world. Evaluations are typically performed for national government agencies and critical infrastructure. In addition to governments and closely aligned industries, large enterprise organizations also use Common Criteria as a quality standard and prerequisite before purchasing or implementing new solutions.
Key Benefits of Common Criteria certification include:
- Assuring the availability of security solutions that have been rigorously tested and evaluated to the highest standards for use in critical infrastructure
- Eliminating unnecessary duplication of IT product evaluations that would otherwise be handled separately and in non-standardized ways by tens of thousands of organizations around the globe every year
- Delivering a globally recognized, cost-effective, efficient validation and certification process for IT products that are used by governments and enterprises
Which countries are part of the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA)?
Over 30 countries including United Kingdom, United States, Germany, France, Australia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Israel, Norway, Sweden, Singapore, India, Czech Republic and many others participate in Common Criteria.
