Cyberoam certifies firewall on security Common Criteria
Cyberoam's Layer 8 Firewall, part of its UTM appliance family, has achieved EAL4+ certification.

Cyberoam's Layer-8 user-identity based Firewall has achieved the Common Criteria certification Evaluation Assurance Level 4+ (EAL4+).

Common Criteria is an international set of standards (ISO/IEC 15408) that provides a common framework for evaluating security features and capabilities of Information Technology (IT) security products.

The EAL standard is intended to show that the product has proven levels of security, and is often used as a purchasing criteria for security solutions, particularly by government organisations.

Cyberoam worked with certification consulting company Corsec Security, Inc. and Epoche & Espri's accredited Common Criteria lab to complete the evaluation.

"With Common Criteria EAL4+, we have gone a step further in strengthening our focus and presence in enterprise and government organisations," said Abhilash Sonwane, Cyberoam's senior vice president of Product Management. "This achievement reinforces our commitment to deliver our customers network security appliances that are evaluated against the industry's highest security standards, thus meeting their evolving security needs. At the same time, this certification gives our channel partners greater confidence to take Cyberoam's security offerings to more customers in enterprise and government segments."

"Common Criteria EAL4+ certification is a great achievement for the Cyberoam team," said Matthew Appler, CEO of Corsec Security. "Going through the certification process is a huge commitment. Although certification can be challenging, Cyberoam wanted to ensure their European and U.S. commercial customers that they were receiving not only a superior product, but one that meets some of the highest security standards. Achieving EAL4+ certification is a giant step in the right direction."
