Cimcor's CimTrak For Servers Accomplishes Critical Step in Achieving Common Criteria EAL4

CimTrak For Servers Enters Into Common Criteria Evaluation

MERRILLVILLE, IN--(Marketwire - February 25, 2008) - CIMCOR, Inc. announced today that its CimTrak For Servers Version 2.0.6 integrity software has been formally accepted into evaluation for Common Criteria (ISO/IEC 15408). Stephen Wilson, InfoGard Laboratories Common Criteria Evaluations Manager, commented, "The Cimcor team is dedicated to providing a secure IT security product to the Department of Defense and Intelligence community agencies to fulfill their mission. We take pleasure in working with Cimcor to evaluate their IT security product. It was encouraging to observe the inherent security features designed in the CimTrak product."

CimTrak For Servers provides unprecedented security, auditing, and change control capabilities for critical servers and applications. It detects and audits all file and configuration changes on servers using real-time file integrity monitoring. CimTrak detects changes and provides several response options to log, triage, and mitigate the events. Among these, the ability to instantly detect and remediate unexpected changes provides an unparalleled level of protection. CimTrak utilizes FIPS 140-2 certified cryptographic methods and other world-class security practices in order to deliver a best-of-breed security product. CimTrak is a powerful change management and auditing tool that can help organizations meet DoD Directive 8500.2, FISMA, Sarbanes Oxley, and other compliance requirements.

"Considering the number of products on the market, the list of all products that have completed testing or are currently under evaluation is relatively small," said Robert E. Johnson, III -- President and CEO of CIMCOR. "We are now a member of a very elite group of security products. It will greatly enhance our ability to help secure the infrastructure of our military, federal agencies, and the governments of several countries throughout the world."

CimTrak is undergoing testing for EAL4 certification and is scheduled to be completed later this year. "EAL4 is a very important milestone for us. Less than 20% of all products in evaluation are being tested for level 4 or higher certification," explained Johnson. The guidelines and depth of testing become more stringent with each level. The majority of products test under a conformance claim of EAL2 or EAL3.
