WhatsUp Gold software products have recently been certified under the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS). (see today's announcement for more details).

Most folks call it Common Criteria. If you are not familiar, it’s an internationally recognized standard. It allows organizations to confidently assess the security and assurance of IT software. Specifically, to ensure they meet an agreed-upon security standard for certain government deployments.

CCWith Common Criteria certification in place, our customers have the added confidence that our WhatsUp Gold products have been validated against rigorous security standards. These include user data protection, fault tolerance and authentication.

There’s a lot of work involved. We worked with an authorized third party. Their approach was rigorous and standard and repeatable manner at a level that is commensurate with the target environment for use.

If you work at any organization in any of these 27 countries:

The Common Criteria Mutual Recognition Arrangement has 27 member countries. It includes all of North America, most of Europe, Australia, Israel and beyond. The arrangement leverages the use of Common Criteria certificates by each member nation so that products can be procured without the need for further evaluation. 

WhatsUp Gold software products that now meet Common Criteria standards include:

We’ve been making lots of noise in the security space this year. Last month we joined the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).  Additionally, MOVEit® Managed File Transfer software achieved Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) certification.
