MobileIron First to Receive Common Criteria Certification for Mobile Device Management Protection Profile V3
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the company to introduce the industry’s first mobile-centric, zero trust enterprise security platform, today announced that it has become the first UEM provider to receive Common Criteria certification against Version 3.0 of the Mobile Device Management Protection Profile (MDMPP v3.0 and MDMPP Agent v3.0) from the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP). NIAP is the United States government initiative, operated by the National Security Agency (NSA), that oversees the national program to evaluate technology products for conformance to Common Criteria. Common Criteria evaluations involve extensive and rigorous testing of the security aspects of a product or system.
"We’re proud to have met the sophisticated security requirements set by NIAP to receive the MDMPP v3.0 certification. Providing secure access to the enterprise for all our customers, which include government agencies with some of the most stringent requirements has always been our number one goal. This new certification is yet another proof of our commitment to our government customers to protect and keep safe their most sensitive enterprise data,” said Brian Foster, SVP of product management, MobileIron.
MDMPP v3.0 describes security requirements for Mobile Device Management (MDM) products that allow enterprises to apply security policies to mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. The purpose of these policies is to establish adequate security posture to permit mobile devices to process enterprise data and connect to enterprise network resources.
MDMPP Agent v3.0 describes security requirements for MDM Agents to address a range of security threats including theft of sensitive data, unauthorized access to malicious applications, network attacks, network eavesdropping, and physical access.
Common Criteria is an internationally recognized set of guidelines (ISO/IEC 15408) used by governments, banks, and other organizations to assess the security capabilities of technology products. Protection Profiles provide the specific evaluation criteria used for certification under Common Criteria. This certification gives enterprises visibility and confidence in the security of technology products. Common Criteria has been in effect since 1999, and the product certifications are recognized by 30 nations.
