Trustwave Malware Protection Technology Achieves Common Criteria Validation

Trustwave Secure Web Gateway Helps Government Agencies and Enterprises Take Malware to Zero 

Trustwave announced that the latest version of its Secure Web Gateway, which gives organizations the ability to address malware, zero-day vulnerabilities, as well as blended and advanced persistent threats, has achieved Common Criteria Validation with an EAL 2+ level of assurance.

The internationally-approved validation gives government agencies and enterprises across at least 26 countries confirmation that Trustwave Secure Web Gateway, through independent evaluation, has met specific security standards.

Malware is a persistent and growing problem — attacking organizations from all sides: the web, email, and through increasingly-embraced social media tools. A recent Osterman Research survey of security professionals shows that malware has infiltrated 74 percent of organizations through the Web during the past year, while fifty-eight percent of survey respondents said that malware being introduced from employees browsing the Web was a serious concern.

Trustwave Secure Web Gateway offers real-time protection from malware, zero-day vulnerabilities and data loss, and can help government agencies and enterprises embrace social media and evolving Web applications safely. For example, after repeatedly detecting data-stealing malware within its network, a global financial institution began using Trustwave Secure Web Gateway which took their malware infections down to zero.

Trustwave Secure Web Gateway, available as software or on appliances, is also available as a managed security service. The Trustwave Managed Secure Web Gateway affords organizations advanced malware and zero-day threat protection without their having to worry about policy adjustments, fine-tuning and device management. This can free up IT staff to focus on strategic IT projects while protecting their citizen, consumer and government data.

Several other Trustwave technologies have received Common Criteria validation including Trustwave Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)Trustwave Web Application Firewall and Trustwave Network Access Control.
