Gigamon’s GigaVUE® Platform Achieves NIAP Common Criteria Certification
March 2016 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Gigamon Inc. 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.
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 Visibility Fabric nodes, including GigaVUE-HB1, GigaVUE-HC2, GigaVUE-HD4 and GigaVUE-HD8
GigaVUE TA Series Visibility Fabric nodes for traffic aggregation and high-volume traffic monitoring, including GigaVUE-TA10 and GigaVUE-TA40
