Citrix product gets Common Criteria certification

Citrix Systems has earned Common Criteria certification at Evaluation Assurance Level 2 for a server product that is a major part of the company's Access Suite solution set.

Citrix Access Suite consolidates access to a network, incorporating various access points, capabilities and technologies into one system.

The certification is for the Citrix Presentation Server 4, which runs applications that users can then access virtually from any location. The certification validates the server's functional security and the integrity of its security features, according to the company.

Agencies are increasingly requiring Common Criteria certification in requests for proposals, making it more important for companies that want their technology to be among federal projects to submit their products to the certification process, according to industry observers.
