PC security kit achieves certification

Monday, 16 February 2004, 4:44 PM EST

Pointsec Mobile Technologies last week announced that its Pointsec for PC security tool has gained certification under the internationally recognised Common Criteria standards process. The move means the product meets the tight security requirements of firms and government agencies in many industrialised nations. Pointsec for PC is the first such product to receive certification, the firm said.

Pointsec for PC is a security application that encrypts all data files on the hard disk of a Windows desktop or laptop, and enforces password access to the data. The software has been certified under Assurance Level 4 of the Common Criteria, which is required for commercial products used by US government agencies.
