| Operating Environment certification from the Defense Information Systems 
| Agency, meeting DISA requirements for interoperability, performance and 
| standards. It also received certification through the Common Criteria 
| Evaluation and Validation Scheme, a cooperative effort of the United States, 
| Canada and Europe that’s spearheaded by the National Institute of Standards 
| and Technology. CCEVS is “sort of a Good Housekeeping Seal of approval” that 
| a product is secure, Smith said.       
| Microsoft Windows just doesn’t have a good reputation when it has to scale to 
| an enterprise application that requires high levels of security, Smith said.
