I can't find any evidence of a Gauntlet Common Criteria evaluation; they've 
got an evaluation under the old UK scheme (which is not mutually 
recognized). I wonder about the "certified in EAL1" comment - nobody is 
going to bother with an EAL1 evaluation when you've got competitors already 
EAL4 evaluated (BorderWare) and EAL2 evaluated (Firewall-1, PIX, Lucent, 
many others). There's some EAL3 firewalls as well.
 From a quick look, only BorderWare has made the effort to go to EAL4. 
That's a LOT of extra work for them and speaks well about the product.
