SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Venafi®, the leading provider of machine identity protection, today announced the National Information Assurance Partnership’s (NIAP) Common Criteria Testing Laboratory (CCTL) is currently evaluating the Venafi Trust Protection Platform as a candidate for Common Criteria Certification, a requirement for hardware and software devices to be used by Federal government and national security systems.
The Venafi Trust Protection Platform manages and secures the cryptographic keys and digital certificates that make up machine identities, delivering an enterprise-grade platform that provides in-depth security, operational efficiency and organizational compliance. Keys and certificates are used to uniquely identify and create trusted relationships between machines, devices and systems. They control the flow of information to trusted machines and prevent the flow of information to those that are not trusted. With the Venafi Trust Protection Platform, organizations can efficiently orchestrate the entire machine identity lifecycle, keeping communications between machines secure and private.
“Government agencies face unique and complex cybersecurity threats, from sophisticated nation state attacks to malicious insiders,” said Jeff Hudson, chief executive officer for Venafi. “The Common Criteria Testing Laboratory places the most stringent demands for system and data integrity, confidentiality and availability. Achieving this milestone demonstrates our commitment to providing government organizations the most secure and effective machine identity solutions.”
Currently twenty-six nations recognize the Common Criteria. In the United States the NIAP — a partnership between the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Security Agency (NSA) — is responsible for Common Criteria evaluation and implementation.
