Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls Achieve New Rigorous Common Criteria Certificatio
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – December 16, 2015 – Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the next-generation security company, today announced that its next-generation firewall devices have achieved a new Common Criteria (CC) certification. This certification builds upon the previous Common Criteria certification at Evaluation Assurance Level 4+ (EAL4+) that Palo Alto Networks received in 2013.
Common Criteria is an international (ISO) standard for security certification of IT products. It is a common requirement for government agency and critical infrastructure technology purchases. Because the certification validates a product’s security claims and capabilities, it helps set a consistent confidence bar for other industry customers.
QUOTE “Common Criteria has a rigorous testing process, and we are pleased to add this new certification for our next-generation firewall devices; along with our previous certifications, it further underscores that our firewalls are designed to meet the exacting security needs government and critical infrastructure organizations have today.” - Lee Klarich, executive vice president of product management at Palo Alto Networks
This new certification applies to the Palo Alto Networks PA-200, PA-500, PA-3000 Series, PA-5000 Series and PA-7000 Series next-generation firewalls, and the VM-Series virtual next-generation firewall with PAN-OS® 7.0.1-h4.
