Common Criteria Certified


You've probably seen the headlines of damaging information breaches - an unfortunate scenario, especially when secure methods could have prevented them. In today’s high-tech world of high-speed information, and ever-tightening government regulatory laws, it's important to secure sensitive data. As an international governing standard, Common Criteria assists organisations around the world understand which secure devices have their tick of approval. 


Common Criteria & What It Is


The Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (Common Criteria), also known as ISO 15408, is an international accreditation process for IT security products adopted by twenty six nations including Australia.

Common Criteria evaluated products are certified to meet claimed security functions for various assurance levels.  The certification process reviews the overall product design and functionality from its inception, to final product and overall use. It takes an all-encompassing look at the software, hardware and firmware of a device, as well as the overall development process of the product and scrutinises the design, development, release and support of the product.

Common Criteria & Why It Matters


With the serious costs and damages associated with data security breaches, government and regulatory organizations have cracked down on government agencies, financial corporations, medical institutions and businesses alike; holding them accountable for maintaining, structuring and managing security of all sensitive data.  International regulatory acts such as Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley and HIPAA as well as changes to Australia's Privacy Laws earlier this year come with significant penalties for violations or breaches. Kanguru ensures that their products adhere to the highest of standards in order to assist companies and organizations to hold fast to these regulations.


By achieving both FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria certification together, Kanguru surpasses other similar devices in the industry, going above and beyond the call of duty.  The fact that the entire product and set of processes has undergone a rigorous set of security evaluations in both Europe and the United States, makes a more compelling case for breadth of coverage than a product which has only had a specific component evaluated!  Customers can be assured that their Kanguru Common Criteria certified products meet the toughest and most stringent standards in the industry, providing the strongest option available to comply with even the most rigorous regulatory and data security laws.
