Cybersecurity leader is licensed to evaluate IoT-enabled devices for CSPN security certification from its advanced laboratories in Caen, France
CHESEAUX-SUR-LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kudelski Security, the cybersecurity division of the Kudelski Group (SIX: KUD.S) today announced that its advanced labs have been licensed by ANSSI (L'Agence Nationale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d'Information), the French government agency responsible for national network and information security, to evaluate IoT-enabled devices for CSPN security certification.
The CSPN certification process allows companies to increase trust in the security of their technology, without investing the time and money required for other certifications, such as Common Criteria and Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS).
CSPN, a first-level security certification for products and services destined for the French market, is of particular interest to companies operating within the IoT space, where technology evolves continuously and rapid time to market is key to success. The evaluation timing is fixed at eight weeks. Evaluation costs are contained and continuity programs are integrated within the process, enabling product evolution. All methods, procedures, documentation used in CSPN evaluations are established by ANNSI.
Kudelski Security advanced labs have rich experience in both designing and executing certification schemes in the pay-tv field, notably for devices and chipsets. Skilled assessment teams, leveraging industry-leading and proprietary technology, will ensure the CSPN evaluation is carried out thoroughly, on time and on budget. Going beyond the role of a CSPN evaluation facility, they can also support you with expert advice on any security issues affecting your product ecosystem and, if desired, can create a custom certification scheme that enables you meet an enhanced target security level.
"Kudelski Security, a trusted advisor and cybersecurity innovator, can now offer its clients the assurance that evaluations are carried out as defined by the industry-leading testing standard in France," said Andrew Howard, chief technology officer, Kudelski Security. "The recognition of ANSSI underlines our credibility as a trusted provider of security evaluations for connected devices for sale on the French market."
