Packet filter from secunet receives IT security certificate according to Common Criteria

"The certification confirms that the security of the secunet wall 2 packet filter meets the very highest demands. For our customers this means that they can rely on independently verified security," explains Dr. Rainer Baumgart, CEO of secunet.Jan Hichert, founder and CEO of Astaro, reports: "We are delighted that Astaro received this demanding and internationally recognized certification; it demonstrates once again that security and future technologies don't have to be mutually exclusive."

The highest internationally recognized EAL4+ certification level not only requires an inspection of the development environment, but also the examination of the entire source code by independent experts. The IT security certificate thereby guarantees customers that security regulations have been implemented correctly and that the processes used for that correspond to recognized standards.

The certified packet filter will be supplied for the first time in version 8.103 of secunet wall 2.
