Ivanti, the company that unifies IT to better manage and secure the digital workplace, today announced that Ivanti® Patch for Windows has completed the Common Criteria EAL 2+ Assurance Continuity certification process. The certification was established to create a baseline for evaluating security features and capabilities of information technology security products, and completing it provides assurance that the process of specification, implementation, and evaluation of those security features was conducted in a thorough and standard manner.
The new Common Criteria EAL 2+ certification for Ivanti Patch for Windows 9.3 Update 1 is an extension of an earlier certification earned under the Shavlik brand prior to becoming Ivanti. It ensures that Ivanti Patch for Windows will continue to meet Common Criteria requirements without need for further evaluation. The certification is an important accreditation for global organisations as well as federal, state, and local government and educational institutions. Additional details on Ivanti‘s Common Criteria listing can be found on the Common Criteria Certified Products Portal, including the updated Maintenance Report and Security Target.
“At Ivanti, we strive to simplify the Windows patching process, delivering timely, consistent patching that helps ensure the security of our customers’ environments,” said Chris Goettl, Director of Product Management, Security, Ivanti. “By earning an extension of our Common Criteria EAL 2+ certification, Ivanti is giving organisations further confidence that their environment is protected with the critical patches needed to keep it safe.”
“We are pleased to recognise Ivanti on completing the arduous process of Common Criteria certification,” said Jake Nelson, Director of Marketing, Corsec Security, Inc. “Having certified under an internationally recognised set of guidelines, Ivanti Patch for Windows can be adopted by customers with confidence. It has been thoroughly evaluated through third-party laboratory testing to meet stringent security requirements.”

About Common Criteria
Common Criteria is an internationally recognised set of guidelines (ISO 15408) that defines a common framework for evaluating security features and capabilities of information technology security products. The standard consists of several predetermined evaluation assurance levels, each one more stringent than the last. Common Criteria allows vendors to have their products tested against a chosen level by an independent third-party testing laboratory. The Common Criteria Mutual Recognition Agreement (CCRA) is a pact designed to allow all evaluations up to an evaluation assurance level (EAL) 2 to be recognised by all participating countries, regardless of where the evaluation was completed. There are currently 28 countries involved in the CCRA, including the United States and Canada, with others that follow unofficially, such as the EU. The U.S. government mandates Common Criteria certification of security products for federal purchases. The National Information Assurance Acquisition Policy, NSTISSP No. 11, requires agencies to purchase only those commercial security products that have met specified third-party assurance requirements and have been tested by an accredited national laboratory.
