December 05, 2017
The technology will now be available for use by government, healthcare and education providers in 27 countries.
Votiro, global leader in content disarm and reconstruction technology, a solution that protects organizations against undisclosed, zero-day exploits and other ongoing cyber threats, announced today that it has received the Common Criteria Certification from the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), following evaluation by BAE Systems, a provider of some of the world’s most advanced, technology-led defense, aerospace and security solutions. This new certification will allow Votiro to deliver its products, including its Advanced Content Disarm and Reconstruction technology, to government offices worldwide, demonstrating the reliability of their technology.
Common Criteria Certification provides independent, objective validation of the reliability, quality, and trustworthiness of IT products, and is a standard that customers can rely on to help them make informed decisions about their IT purchases. It’s also a requirement of hardware and software devices used by the federal government on national security systems.
To achieve common criteria certification, Votiro’s technology went through a rigorous process lead by a third-party lab, recognized by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) to ensure it met the security requirements based on predefined Evaluations Assurance Levels (EALs). Votiro was granted Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 2– the highest evaluation for software-demonstrating to governments worldwide that they can place their trust in Votiro’s secure technology.
The certification was obtained through the Australasian Information Security Evaluation Program (AISEP), overseen by the Australasian Certification Authority. This certification is recognized among the twenty-seven countries, including the US and Canada, that have signed the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA), making it an exceptional measure of security for the international commerce of IT products.
“Hackers are continuously evolving and improving their tactics,” said Aviv Grafi, CTO of Votiro. “The Common Criteria’s strict standards help ensure that governments worldwide are equipped with the most secure technologies on the market, allowing them to stay one step ahead of the hackers. We are proud to have earned this highly esteemed certification, which will allow us to expand our customer base around the world.”
