IT Security Evaluation AND Testing

EWA Canada is an accredited test lab and is approved to perform evaluations for Common Criteria (CC), Cryptographic Module Testing, Cryptographic Algorithm Testing, Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Testing and Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). If your company develops IT security products for government, commercial organisations or the payment industry, you may find that not having those products certified or validated can leave you at a disadvantage in the marketplace. The EWA-Canada IT Security Evaluation & Test Facility (ITSET) is a fully accredited, third-party (i.e. vendor-neutral) facility that provides a number of services to help you ensure your products are compliant with the rigorous requirements of U.S. and international IT security, information assurance and data protection standards and programs. EWA-Canada ITSET services include the following:
