Santa Clara, Calif., (Mar, 16th 2016) – Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), the leader in traffic visibility solutions, today announced it has achieved National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria (CC) certification for its GigaVUE® family of products, which include hardware and software components that are offered with the GigaSECURE® Security Delivery Platform. This accomplishment signifies that GigaVUE products meet the stringent security requirements of all government agencies, and serves as another significant demonstration of Gigamon’s leadership in the federal market.
The Common Criteria certification for NIAP’s Network Device Protection Profile builds upon Gigamon's Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2 accreditation, as well as the inclusion in the Department of Defense Unified Capabilities Approved Product List (UC APL). This trio of security certifications allows Gigamon to continue to provide government agencies with the most secure, best-of-breed products and services for network visibility.
The Common Criteria is an international standard (ISO 17025) for validating products that meet specific security requirements. The features and capabilities of a security product are evaluated through a rigorous third-party evaluation and testing process. The standard is used as the basis for approving Federal Government purchases of critical infrastructure.
The following GigaVUE nodes that run GigaVUE-OS™ are certified for Common Criteria:
GigaVUE H Series and GigaVUE TA Series include hardware and software components of GigaSECURE, the industry’s first Security Delivery Platform that provides pervasive visibility of network traffic, users, applications and suspicious activity – across physical and virtual networks. GigaSECURE delivers this critical network visibility and metadata to multiple security devices simultaneously without impacting network availability. As a direct result, security appliances of all types are more effective at protection and remediation, with the added benefit that cost and complexity of managing security infrastructure is reduced. The solution has the support of security vendors spanning all major categories of security applications, from emerging areas such as user behavioral analytics as well as traditional ones like forensics, intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS), security information and event management (SIEM) and log management.
“With Common Criteria certification, our award-winning GigaVUE product family and, by extension, our GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform become broadly accessible infrastructure worthy of deployment in the world’s most mission critical networks,” said Dennis Reilly, Vice President of Federal Sales at Gigamon. “We are thrilled to be the only network visibility platform provider that is Common Criteria-certified.”
“We congratulate Gigamon on another federal standards milestone as the first visibility platform to achieve Common Criteria certification,” said Roger Niles, Vice President of Sales, ClearShark. “Our continued success rests on delivering the best IT solutions and services to federal agencies, and Gigamon has proven an outstanding partner in this mission.”
Gigamon (NYSE: GIMO) provides active visibility into physical and virtual network traffic, enabling stronger security and superior performance. Gigamon’s Visibility Fabric™ and GigaSECURE®, the industry’s first Security Delivery Platform, deliver advanced intelligence so that security, network and application performance management solutions in enterprise, government and service provider networks operate more efficiently and effectively.
