Stonesoft, a leader in enterprise network security, Sunday announced that its StoneGate Firewall and Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution has been awarded the prestigious Checkmark certification - the first firewall and VPN appliance available in the Middle East and rest of the world, to be accorded to honor.
Following extensive testing by U.S. based West Coast Labs, StoneGate has achieved Checkmark certification for Firewalls Levels 1 and 2, as well as for its VPN. The award is an acknowledgement of Stonesoft’s excellence in security products, and its commitment to ensuring that all its solutions meet recognized industry standards.
“Security is a very sensitive topic within Middle East organizations. Security and IT directors need to be confident that the product they are investing in can not only do the job, but has also gone through extensive testing and certification by third-party organizations such as West Coast Labs, said Jari Valvisto, vice president Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe, and emerging markets.
“Enterprise organizations in the region can be assured that the StoneGate solutions they deploy meet the highest standards. We are very pleased to hear that our StoneGate Firewall and VPN solution has achieved the certification on various levels from such a high-quality testing and certification service as Checkmark.”
The Firewall Checkmark Level 1 is designed to ensure that firewalls achieve a basic level of protection against a number of common hostile attacks, from both inside and outside the organization. The Level 2 certification is designed to ensure that firewalls achieve an advanced level of protection against hostile attacks from both inside and outside the organization, and meet requirements for management, administration and performance.(menareport.com)
