CA system management software Common Criteria-certified

System management software from CA has been certified through the National Information Assurance Partnership's (NIAP) Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme, the company announced today.

Version 11.1 of Unicenter Network and Systems Management earned Evaluation Assurance Level 2 certification.

Overseen in the United States by NIAP, Common Criteria is an internationally recognized set of security requirements established by government agencies and private companies. To have their products certified, vendors must provide a set of security attributes for each product, which an independent laboratory verifies.

The Defense Department uses the Common Criteria as a baseline for buying information technology products for secure networks. NIAP is a partnership between the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National Security Agency.

EAL 2 of the Common Criteria scheme addresses product functionality, the development environment, documentation and product testing measures.

CygnaCom Solutions' Security Evaluation Laboratory, a subsidiary of Entrust based in McLean, Va., performed the evaluations.

Unicenter Network and Systems Management monitors servers and network gear for uptime and performance issues.
