CyberArk has achieved Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level EAL 2+ for its comprehensive CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution.

CyberArk is committed to helping federal organisations and global enterprises secure privileged accounts and securing them from cyber attackers who want to gain access to sensitive data and systems.

Common Criteria, an internationally approved set of security standards, provides a clear and reliable evaluation of the security capabilities of IT products. This certification was conducted by EWA-Canada, one of the accredited Common Criteria testing laboratories, which conducted product testing and evaluated remediation policies, secure delivery process and configuration management process.

"The Common Criteria certification further validates CyberArk's privileged account security capabilities. We are committed to helping organisations be more responsive to emerging cyber threats and launch proactive controls around privileged accounts and users to protect their most valuable assets," said Roy Adar, senior vice president, product management, CyberArk.

Reliable framework
Common Criteria's reliable frame work provides confirmation that the development, evaluation and validation of an IT product has met specific security standards in accordance with an independent assessment accepted security-conscious customers.

Common Criteria allows users from other countries to purchase IT products with the same level of confidence as the certification is recognised in 25 nations.

CyberArk was provided with strategic advice by Virginia-based Corsec in this certification process. The company has designed its CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution v9.1 to protect, monitor and alert on privileged accounts across the enterprise, cloud and SCADA/OT environments.

"The Common Criteria certification of the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution is an important step because CyberArk has now achieved an internationally recognised standard for protection of privileged credentials," said Erin Connor, director of the EWA-Canada Common Criteria Test Lab (CCTL). "Achieving this certification demonstrates CyberArk's commitment to providing high quality security solutions to its customers.
