TYSONS CORNER, VA April 21, 2015 — Executive Mosaic — Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) said it has earned Common Criteria certification for the latest iteration of its JBoss commercial middleware platform, providing clients a tool with an Evaluation Assurance Level 4+ rating that meets government security standards, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.

Atsec information security served as the inspecting body for the technology product, Red Hat said Wednesday.

“Common Criteria accreditation is a high water mark for security standards, ” said Paul Smith, vice president and general manager for Red Hat’s public sector business.

“It is a non trivial effort in terms of labor and economic investment, and is part of the value of the Red Hat subscription.”

Kenneth Hake of atsec USA said the evaluation into JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.2 looked into the product’s security aspects in access control, transaction rollback, clustering, audit, identification and authentication.
