Citrix’s XenServer and XenDesktop products have been certified to meet Common Criteria EAL 2.
Common Criteria provides a framework for evaluating security features and capabilities of IT security products.
The certification will boost the firm’s ability to provide secure desktop, server and application virtualization to government and private-sector clients.
“The certification of XenDesktop and XenServer further demonstrates our commitment to delivering the kinds of secure virtual computing solutions that our customers demand, ” said Tom Simmons, area vice president for Citrix Public Sector. “With these certifications, Citrix is now the first and only company to have a complete, end-to-end virtualization solution certified to meet the security and interoperability requirements of our federal customer, especially the Department of Defense.”
