Plynt issued two certificates: one for the NOVAtime 4000 Workforce Management Solution (Supervisor Web Services, Employee Web Services, and Administrator Web Services), and one for the NOVAtime Enterprise Web Services (N.E.W.S.), a secured middleware services for NOVAtime 4000 Enterprise Application.

The Plynt Certificate establishes that a web application has adequate measures to guard against remote adversaries and protect against a wide range of threats. An application must demonstrate through remote testing that these security criteria are met before it is awarded the Plynt Certificate. The Certification Standard is composed of 23 criteria. These are organized in two sections: Section 1, "Security Protection Criteria," identifies the defenses an application must demonstrate to get the Plynt Certificate. Section 2, "Security Requirements Criteria," specifies the features and behavior an application must have to get the Plynt Certificate.
