Common Criteria EAL4+ Certification Awarded to Oracle Database Vault

Oracle Database Vault, the industry's first and only native database privileged user control and multi-factor authorization solution, has been awarded the international Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 4 Augmented (EAL 4+) certification. This certification means that organizations worldwide can continue to have the utmost confidence in the security afforded by Oracle Database Vault.

The Common Criteria for IT Security Evaluations is an internationally recognized standard (ISO 15408) to measure the security of IT products.

The evaluation standard was initially developed by the national security organizations of the United States, Canada, U.K., France, Germany, and the Netherlands, and provides a broad range of evaluation criteria for many types of commercial and nationally sensitive government-use IT security products. EAL 4+ is the highest mutually recognized certification level. This level requires the deepest level of evaluation possible from an independent testing laboratory and is considered a critical measure of the quality of an IT security product and a procurement requirement by governments and IT professionals globally.
