Veritas is pleased to announce that its flagship products, NetBackup 8.2 and NetBackup 5240 Appliance 3.2, are certified by the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation certification, with an Evaluation Assurance Level 2 (EAL2) designation.
The Common Criteria certification is a critical selection criterion for IT solutions in federal, state, and local governments around the world, affirming that they meet a range of rigorous security standards.
Security is more important than ever for data protection, particularly when it comes to the United States public sector and global government deployments. Governments at every level are targets of numerous security threats that can jeopardize sensitive data wherever it resides. The Common Criteria certification is an arduous achievement that illustrates Veritas’ commitment to delivering the most secure data protection solution in the market.
Large Enterprises and Government bodies across the globe have turned to Veritas NetBackup for providing a scalable, flexible, and highly secure industry’s most advanced data protection solution.
Common Criteria is an internationally recognized body of standards, guidelines, and frameworks for evaluating security features and capabilities of IT security products. Many countries, including the United States, have signed the Common Criteria Recognition Act (CCRA). Certification assures customers that a solution has passed a thorough process of specification, implementation, and evaluation proving the technology’s security. The EAL2 designation indicates that the solution has been structurally tested to meet special additional security criteria.
