CESG Certification for VigilancePro

Overtis Systems : 08 June, 2010  (New Product)
Assessment against CESG criteria determines that VigilancePro from Overtis meets the requirements of protecting sensitive data both at rest and during transmission
Overtis has announced that its VigilancePro software has gained the CESG Claims Test Mark (CCTM) certification. Run by CESG, the Information Assurance (IA) arm of the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), the CCTM certification scheme provides a quality kite mark for buyers in the public and private sector. CCTM features as a recommended certification in the CESG Good Practice Guidelines and the HMG IA Standards.

The CCTM tests established that VigilancePro is a comprehensive insider threat management solution capable of protecting sensitive data at rest, in use and during transmission. The assessors also agreed that VigilancePro is suitable for protecting data at business impact level 2 and below. Tests further substantiated the ability of advanced endpoint security agents, as well as agents for servers and terminal servers, to carry out information protection over a central management server. Moreover, the ability of VigilancePro to promote positive user behaviour in line with security policies, through a combination of on-screen prompts and intelligent least-restrictive intervention methods, was also validated. By integrating logical (IT) security with physical security systems such as CCTV, biometrics and access control, CESG validated that VigilancePro can help to prevent data being lost via electronic communications, or by physical removal from a building.

Head of the CCTM Secretariat, Peter Hayes, announced the award at the annual showcase event, Infosecurity Europe 2010. "It is really helpful to buyers across the public sector to see recognition for products they can use with confidence. In addition, many private sector suppliers are adopting CCTM certificated products in their solutions for their own government customers", notes Hayes. "Buying an Information Assurance product from commercial vendors becomes a good deal easier when the buyer can see this CESG kite mark", says Hayes.

"We are delighted to gain certification as it demonstrates that VigilancePro has stood up to independent scrutiny and proved in numerous tests that it allows system administrators to monitor, manage and protect data whenever users interact with it on the endpoint, thereby improving data governance and guaranteeing compliance with industry and regulatory requirements," said Ed Macnair, CEO, Overtis.
