Certify to Common Criteria (ISO 15408) and gain a distinct competitive advantage while best positioning your product within regulated industries and markets, worldwide.

What is Common Criteria?

Common Criteria (CC) is the widest available cybersecurity program for IT products. Common Criteria (ISO 15408) is the only global mutually recognized product security standard. The goal of the Common Criteria is to develop confidence and trust in the security characteristics of a system and in the processes used to develop and support it.

Common Criteria Benefits

Manufacturers often make claims about the security attributes of their products, Common Criteria is used by testing laboratories to evaluate and prove that a product functions as claimed by the vendors, by following formal, independently verifiable, and repeatable methods. Common Criteria provides assurance that the process of specification, implementation and evaluation of a security product has been conducted at a level that is intended with the target use. Under the Arrangement on the Recognition of Common Criteria Certificates (CCRA), Common Criteria is recognized in 31 countries across the globe.
