Workspace ONE Boxer First Email Tool to Achieve NIAP Common Criteria Certification

We are thrilled to announce that our secure, containerized email application Workspace ONE Boxer has officially received international Common Criteria security certification, making it the first email client of any kind to achieve this milestone. 

The international Common Criteria security certification mark, as recognized by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP).

Workspace ONE Boxer has been certified against the international security standard for application software, defined under the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA), plus a U.S.-specific Common Criteria extension for email clients, defined by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP). CCRA is mutually recognized globally by organizations in 30 member countries to assess and certify security solutions.

“The Workspace ONE solution is focused on providing a delightful end user experience without compromising on security, compliance or privacy. With the NIAP Common Criteria certification, the Boxer app has set a new bar for email security in the industry making us both humble and proud of this accomplishment. This further strengthens our commitment to customers in the government, financial services, healthcare and other regulated industries. I am extremely proud of our team at VMware as we consistently deliver amazing innovations to best serve our customers.” – Hemant Sahani, Director of Product Management

VMware initially acquired Boxer, the popular consumer app, back in 2015. Since the acquisition, our Workspace ONE product teams have focused on building enterprise-ready features within Boxer and across the Workspace ONE platform to meet even the most stringent security requirements. Some noteworthy Boxer security features used by customers across the globe include multiple email S/MIME for signing and encrypting emails, email classification tagging, external sender warning, AES 256-bit encryption, automated compliance actions and more. Built with the Workspace ONE SDK, Boxer is a containerized email app, meaning customers reap all the benefits of security and management on the device without requiring employees to download an MDM profile on the device. This makes Boxer an ideal choice for both corporate liable and bring your own (BYO) device deployments.

Today, the all-in-one email, calendar and contacts solution offers an unmatched blend of intuitive productivity features built on top of industry-leading security, compliance and privacy controls making it an ideal solution for both IT teams and the employees they serve.
