Solera Networks today announced that Solera DeepSee Software and Solera DeepSee Central Manager have been awarded Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 3+ certification.
Common Criteria certification is recognized in over 25 countries as a critical validation of security technology, and will make the Solera DeepSee Platform more accessible to federal agencies and commercial enterprises.
Common Criteria certification is required by the United States and other governments worldwide for departments and agencies seeking to purchase commercial products. It also assures commercial businesses that a product has been certified as meeting a standard measure of security, whether it is used internally or in solutions for customers. To facilitate prompt completion of the Common Criteria certification, Solera Networks partnered with Corsec Security, Inc., a consulting firm with over 14 years of experience in security certifications. Solera DeepSee Software and Solera DeepSee Central Manager were evaluated under the terms and conditions of the Common Criteria Scheme and were certified to comply with the requirements for EAL 3+ Common Criteria Assurance Level.
“Government entities holding a wealth of information crucial to the nation’s safety and security have become keenly aware of the critical need for best-of-breed and massively scalable Security Intelligence and Analytics capabilities to prepare for the inevitability of attacks and security breaches,” said Yiannis Vassiliades, VP of Product Management at Solera Networks. “This Common Criteria certification provides additional assurance that they can confidently leverage these capabilities, which are uniquely available through the Solera DeepSee Platform. We look forward to helping enterprises worldwide respond swiftly to cyberattacks and further protect their critical data.”
