Endpoint Protector 4 by CoSoSys receives Common Criteria Certification

Endpoint Protector 4 DLP capabilities are in the highlight achieving Common Criteria EAL2 Certification

Seoul, South Korea and Cluj-Napoca, Romania (November 13, 2014) - CoSoSys, developer of best of breed cross-platform Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Device Control and Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions, today announced that Endpoint Protector 4 with its Device Control, Content Aware Protection and EasyLock2 modules have achieved the EAL2 of Common Criteria certification based on the host DLP protection profile of South Korea Government.

Common Criteria is an international standard (ISO 15408) that attests that Information Security products comply with a set of guidelines and specifications. The standard assures the government and other organizations that the products have been developed, implemented and evaluated with strict and thorough methods.

"We are dedicated to convert our Data Loss Prevention software in one of the most secure and complex solution in the market, which is why we invested resources in developing security features that are recognized by Common Criteria standard with EAL2 level. We have proved that our R&D and quality assurance processes have high standards," said Roman Foeckl, CoSoSys CEO.

Data Loss Prevention market size has increased significantly in the last few years and in 2014, the growth is estimated to almost 30%. Businesses worldwide realized that protection of intellectual property should be a priority and that classic security software like antivirus or firewall does not cover threats like transfers of confidential files on removable storage devices or to the cloud. Thus, Data Loss Prevention software has reached a point where it needs to be certified by international guidelines in terms of the security of the product itself and the capabilities it provides for preventing data loss and data thefts.

Endpoint Protector 4 offers control over the use of portable storage devices and in depth scanning of confidential documents before ending up to the wrong e-mail recipient, to the cloud or in malicious hands. The solution supports the filters required by Common Criteria like File Type Filter, Predefined Content Filter, Custom Content Filter and other data loss prevention capabilities. IT administrators benefit from a centralized management console, with options to help them securely administrate policies with granularity and efficiency.

Endpoint Protector 4 Common Criteria Certification information can be found on the IT Security Certification Center website.
