Forcepoint’s expanded commitment to Common Criteria certifications

Jill Bradshaw

As part of digital transformation, government and enterprise organizations are implementing new security capabilities that protect sensitive networks and data wherever they are accessed and reside. However, at the same time organizations must ensure that their security solutions are standards based, perform as expected and interoperate reliably with existing technology.

Common Criteria was designed to help organizations find solutions to meet these challenges. Common Criteria is an international standard for IT product security and reliability. In fact, Common Criteria standards are recognized in 28 major countries and are often a minimum requirement for many organizations as part of their procurement program. 

Forcepoint is excited to announce we have expanded our Common Criteria Certified portfolio and have completed Common Criteria Testing with Leidos, Inc. for EAL2+ Certification of the Forcepoint On-Premise Security 8.5 product against the Malaysian Common Criteria Evaluation & Certification (MyCC) Scheme. The solution includes the following product components:

This is in addition to our Forcepoint Next Generation Firewall (NGFW), which achieved Common Criteria certification under the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS).

Our expanded Common Criteria Certified portfolio helps organizations ensure their security solutions exceed international standards and provides an independent verification of security. As part of Forcepoint’s human-centric cybersecurity portfolio, these solutions bring together a broad set of capabilities to protect sensitive networks and data wherever they are accessed and reside. Forcepoint’s system was purposely designed: each element is best in class and can stand alone or integrate within your existing environment to help solve critical security issues and protect employees, data, and IP.
