Senetas encryptors enter ‘in evaluation’ phase of CAPS certification
- 24 May, 2011 12:13
Data protection company, Senetas Corporation Limited (ASX:SEN), had its CN range of high speed network encryptors enter the evaluation phase of the CESG Assisted Products Service (CAPS) approval process in the United Kingdom.
Achieving certification by CESG, the UK’s National Technical Authority for Information Assurance, in its CAPS cryptographic evaluation service will allow Senetas encryptors to be used by the UK government and public sector departments to meet their Baseline (IL3) security and compliance needs.
“This is a significant development for the company in the UK and Europe,” Senetas CEO and acting chairman, John DuBois, said. “We believe strongly in the certification process because, although it is expensive in dollars, time and resources, it is critical that customers in Government and State agencies can have full confidence that a vendor’s claimed information assurance is both effective and securely implemented.”
While Senetas encryptors have already been certified to two other global standards, the US-sponsored FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria EAL4+, having them accredited to the independent, internationally recognised CAPS standard will help to built further trust for the solution among potential government and commercial clients.
The Senetas CN1000 Ethernet encryptor operating at 10/100 Mbps and 1 Gbps, CN3000 Ethernet (10 Gbps) and Fibre Channel (up to 4 Gbps) have been submitted to CAPS, with the Senetas SONET (up to 10 Gbps) range of encryptors to follow.
