Norman ASA, the data security company, today announced that it has completed the OPSWAT OESISOK certification program. This certification provides Norman prospects and customers with independent verification that Norman's security software for single and corporate users operate seamlessly within a network's existing connectivity framework. The certified anti-malware products include Norman SandBox, the world's leading proactive anti-malware solution.
The OESISOK certification was awarded for three security categories, antivirus, antispyware and personal firewall. The certified anti-malware products include Norman SandBox, a proactive technology designed to resolve the daily capture of thousands of unknown threats such as trojans, virus and spyware, which is essential in the daily battle against cyber crime.
"The endpoint has become the Achilles' heel in the war of protecting critical business systems against cyber crime," said Audun Lodemel, vice president of marketing and business development. "The OESISOK interoperability certification program gives IT administrators confidence that Norman's endpoint security applications will work properly with network infrastructure solutions from a variety of providers such as Juniper Networks, Cisco Systems, SonicWALL, F5 Networks, 3Com Corporation and others."
The OESISOK certification program is comprised of several stages of comprehensive installation and verification testing in order to ensure that a security application is both functional and interoperable with any network device or product.
"End users expect that they will receive only interoperable solutions from their IT security providers," said Benny Czarny, president and CEO of OPSWAT, Inc. "The OESISOK certification program ensure that customers are using endpoint security solutions that are both identified and classified correctly by network devices."
