Hopkinton, Mass. - February 09, 2006 -
EMC Corporation, the world leader in information management and storage, today announced that EMC Documentum 5.3 enterprise content management (ECM) platform has been awarded the Common Criteria (CC) certification for meeting the security requirements as defined by the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS). The Common Criteria certification is a globally accepted standard for evaluating the security features and capabilities of information technology products.
"Security is a top priority for our customers, and EMC is focused on developing solutions that protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of their most critical information assets, ensuring that information remains an asset, not a liability, through its lifecycle," said Balaji Yelamanchili, Vice President and General Manager of Content Management, EMC Software Group. "This certification demonstrates our continued commitment to providing the secure ECM products and solutions that customers expect from EMC."
CygnaCom Solutions' Security Evaluation Laboratory conducted the independent accredited evaluation of the core Documentum 5.3 platform. The products satisfied all of the functional security requirements and earned CC certification for Evaluation Assurance Level 2 (EAL2) from the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP). NIAP is a collaborative initiative between the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the U.S. National Security Agency created to meet the security testing needs of both information technology consumers and producers.
EMC Documentum 5.3 platform provides a set of comprehensive, easy-to-use, highly secure services for managing enterprise content via EMC Documentum Trusted Content Services. Documentum Trusted Content Services offers the security features that customers rely on the most, including repository encryption for preventing security breaches at the file system level, electronic signatures for document and content authorization, mandatory access control for enforcing access-control policies of all content types, and digital shredding to ensure secure content disposal, which prevents forensic discovery of deleted content. These capabilities together make the Documentum platform one of the most secure systems used by some of the most security-sensitive customers in government, military, law-enforcement, defense, energy and financial services.
On February 23, 2006, EMC will host an online event that demonstrates how EMC Documentum 5.3 platform received CC Certification, how government agencies and private sectors are implementing Common Criteria standards worldwide and how the Documentum platform can address security and compliance concerns.
