Certification reduces procurement cost and complexity for government agencies and enterprises.
PHOENIX, July 16, 2018 – BeyondTrust, the leading cybersecurity company dedicated to preventing privilege misuse and stopping unauthorized access, announced today that PowerBroker Password Safe has completed the Common Criteria certification. Common Criteria is an internationally-recognized computer security standard that includes stringent review and testing. Achievement of this certification helps to assure that government agencies and global enterprises alike can confidently procure and use BeyondTrust’s best-of-breed privileged account and session management (PASM) solution to reduce data breach risks and address compliance requirements, without the added cost and complexity of additional product testing.
BeyondTrust continues its commitment and dedication to the stringent Common Criteria process as PowerBroker Password Safe joins its long list of existing Certification recipients:
Common Criteria, which is also an ISO standard (ISO 15408), is the foundation for the widest-available mutual international recognition of secure IT products. Its goals include improving the availability of security-enhanced IT products and supporting more efficient procurement of solutions.
The Leidos Common Criteria Testing Laboratory conducted the testing of PowerBroker Password Safe and granted the Common Criteria certificate (# 383-4-412) that became effective on June 29, 2018. PowerBroker Password Safe achieved certification using the Standard Protection Profile for Enterprise Security Management Identity and Credential Management, Version 2.1, 24 October 2013, and the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation, Version 3.1 rev 4.
“Enterprises around the globe depend on Common Criteria certification to ensure the solutions they select perform securely and as promised,” said Morey Haber, Chief Technology Officer, BeyondTrust. “Since 80% of data breaches leverage a privileged account, enterprises, and governments around the world can rely on PowerBroker Password Safe to give IT organizations control over their privileged accounts and to help prevent breaches.”
“The Department of Defense certification highlights our commitment to securing our customers at the highest possible levels,” added Haber. “Devoting time and resources to independent testing solutions adds unnecessary complexity and costs to the selection process. Third-party validation helps commercial organizations looking for proven and secured technologies to identify trusted solutions for securing and modernizing their IT systems.”
