UK Government certification for Check Point products

Check Point : 28 May, 2009  (New Product)
Unified Threat Management and media encryption products from Check Point Technologies gains CCTM certification for use in UK Government applications
Check Point Software Technologies has announced that two of its security solutions, Check Point Media Encryption and Check Point UTM-1 Edge, have been awarded the CESG Claims Tested Mark (CCTM) certification.

The CCTM scheme is run by the UK Government's National Technical Authority for Information Assurance. It provides a government quality mark for the public and private sectors, based on accredited independent testing, to prove the validity of security functionality claims made by vendors. The certification is also a quality assurance guide for private sector users.

Both Check Point solutions will now be listed as approved products in the CESG Directory of Infosec Approved Products for supply to the public sector, including local authorities, NHS, education, criminal justice and police, as well as Central Government and MoD.

Nick Lowe, Check Point's managing director for Northern Europe said: 'We are very pleased to add CCTM certification to our list of international accreditations. It's highly significant for the UK market, as it means public and private sector organisations can choose our UTM-1 Edge and Media Encryption solutions with complete confidence, and benefit from the security, reliability, performance and ease of use they deliver.' More information on third-party certifications received by Check Point can be found at: www.checkpoint.com/products/certifications/.

Check Point Media Encryption prevents unauthorized copying of sensitive data by combining port and device management, content filtering and centralized auditing with robust media encryption. This closes potential leakage points and logs data movement to and from any plug and play devices, providing comprehensive control of security policies.

Check Point UTM-1 Edge appliances combine the industry's most-proven firewall, remote access, messaging security, Web filtering and Network Access Control (NAC) into an all-inclusive, centrally managed, security solution. New Total Security models combine one year of update services for SmartDefense® intrusion prevention, gateway antivirus, messaging security and Web filtering in an all-inclusive, turnkey solution.

The CCTM scheme verifies the claims security vendors make for their solutions for data confidentiality, integrity and availability in the modern government IT environment. Its test methodology is uniformly applied to all candidate products and services to ensure that certification provides a consistent and objective quality benchmark for network managers and purchasers. It is operated by CESG, the Information Assurance arm of the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).
