Red Hat’s Middleware Adds Security Certification
October 8, 2009
by Middleware Team
We are pleased to announce that Red Hat’s Data Services Platform, specifically MetaMatrix 5.5.3, has achieved Common Criteria certification at Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 2. This is a significant milestone for Red Hat’s data services solutions and adds another Common Criteria certification to the Red Hat portfolio, in line with the goals we set in November 2007.
Recognized in 25 countries, Common Criteria is a set of internationally approved guidelines for evaluating and certifying the information security of IT products and information systems. The certification gives private and public sector organizations the confidence that the evaluated IT solution complies with widely accepted security standards.
Data services platforms have become more important as the business world continues to face ever-increasing scrutiny and regulation. The Common Criteria certification for our Data Services Platform, MetaMatrix 5.5.3 shows that the solution complies with these worldwide security standards, making it an attractive option for a security-conscious company or government agency.
Red Hat’s Data Services Platform can help bridge the gap between the data you have and the data you need, reducing the time and cost of software development and integration. This solution facilitates the development of systems that provide consistent, integrated data in real time with enterprise performance, security and management capabilities allowing customers to make better use of existing information assets and work already done.
Red Hat’s Data Services Platform, MetaMatrix, is the latest Red Hat solution to meet the stringent requirements for Common Criteria – the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform received its certification in July 2009.
