Citrix: Common Criteria Certification for XenApp & XenDesktop
Citrix has a long history of achieving the Common Criteria security certification for XenApp and XenDesktop. I am pleased to announce that XenApp and XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR is now formally “in evaluation” status. We are listed as such on the Canadian government CC website, here. Common Criteria is essential for many government customers, but even if this doesn’t apply, you might well find the associated security guidance we will publish helpful for your deployment.
Common Criteria certification makes a significant statement as to the security of the associated product and with Citrix, this present certification is the latest in a long line of evaluations including XenApp 6.0 and XenApp and XenDesktop 7.6. Once the evaluation is complete and an Evaluation Assurance Certificate is issued by the evaluating authority, the certification will be recognized by all the member nations of common criteria (currently 28 nations).

What are we doing differently this time?
We’ve shifted the certification process to Canada for the first time after many years of certification in the UK. With the shift to Canada, we selected a new certification partner, using DXC as the evaluation facility.
