About Common Criteria: Utilized in the public and private sectors, the Common Criteria (also known by the designation ISO international standard 15408) is recognized in several countries, and in the United States federal government, as the unbiased, official third-party evaluation for IT security procedures.
Common Criteria is the first international standardized process for information technology security evaluation, validation and certification for NIAP. NIAP is a program jointly sponsored by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Multiple U.S. government and civilian agencies require new products be tested against the Common Criteria in accordance with the National Information Assurance Acquisition Policy - National Security Telecommunications and Information Systems Security Policy No. 11 (NSTISSP-1).

FIPS 140-2 Enforce announced in March 2004 that its products employ a FIPS 140-2 certified (Certificate No. 343) cryptographic module to protect the integrity and confidentiality of security policies. Further information can be obtained at: http://csrc.nist.gov/
About FIPS 140-2: Established by NIST, the FIPS 140-2 validation takes place through an independent, formal, third-party testing process within the U.S. and Canadian governments. FIPS certification means that the cryptographic-based security systems have been validated as meeting recognized standards. FIPS 140-2 validation is a mandatory requirement by all U.S. federal agencies for the purchase, design and implementation of cryptographic-based security systems.
WHQL Enforce ESS (ZENworks Endpoint Security Management) is officially listed as WHQL certified by Microsoft, ensuring current and ongoing compatibility with Microsoft Windows operating systems. Because the solution runs at the NDIS layer, we have taken extreme care to ensure that we are fully compatible with, and take advantage of, Windows infrastructure.
WHQL Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) is a Microsoft procedure for certifying that the hardware for peripherals and other components is compatible (works as expected) with Microsoft Windows operating systems. WHQL provides test kits to third-party developers so that they can test their product's compatibility. Products that are submitted to and meet the tests at Microsoft are allowed to display the Microsoft Windows logo on their marketing materials and are included in Microsoft's Hardware Compatibility List (HCL).
