AUSTIN, Texas, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Hypori announces that it is the first virtual mobile infrastructure (VMI) vendor and first vendor focused on enterprise mobility security to meet the stringent requirements for Common Criteria Certification.
The company's thin client platform meets the security requirements defined by the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation. Common Criteria is an internationally recognized ISO standard (ISO/IEC15408) governments and other organizations use to assess and assure a technology's security and compliancy standards. The company joins a very exclusive list of only 42 other companies worldwide, to achieve this difficult and prestigious certification awarded by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP).
All technology adopted by the US Government for national security systems is required to be Common Criteria certified, to reduce risk in the handling of classified and unclassified information. In addition, highly regulated and security-conscious organizations, such as those found in healthcare, finance and payment industries leverage Common Criteria as a determining factor when deciding what technologies to adopt.
"The Common Criteria certification further validates Hypori's no data-at-rest policy and Defense in Depth Architecture," said Brian Vetter, CTO of Hypori. "With the ever-increasing threat organizations face on their mobile endpoints, organizations can further ensure the secure deployment of any mobile application to any mobile endpoint."
"Hosted in a central, secure data center, VMI solutions can provide mobile users with secure access to enterprise information in a format native to their device, overcoming the user experience issues that arise from providing access through virtualized Windows environments on devices with smaller screens, such as smartphones and tablets." --Dionisio Zumerle, John Girard, Gartner*
