Check Point achieves EAL 4 Government Certification

By | October 4, 2006

Check Point Software has announced that the NGX version of VPN-1 Power and UTM, has been certified against the Common Criteria EAL 4 certification for VPN and IDS/IPS. Check Point has certified all four critical network security categories – firewall, VPN, IDS/IPS, and remote management – which provide agencies for governments worldwide with an integrated, proven security solution.

The Internet has enabled a transformation in the way governments function and communicate. Remote offices and mobile personnel are now able to connect to the distributed information resources they need. Although more convenient, the emergence of the Internet has spawned the growth of increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks, which now spread faster, do more damage, and are more difficult to contain. Check Point´s solutions, such as VPN-1, Provider-1 and SmartCenter, better enable government organisations to ensure network resources are available, while providing protection from those with malicious intent.

Governments around the world are looking to streamline processes and their IT networks for better communication while staying secure. By helping governments across the globe, as well as enterprises large and small, standardise on technology and reduce security sprawl, Check Point enhances the value of implementing an integrated solution that changes the economics of security in the short and long term.
