SolidFire Completes Common Criteria Effort with Corsec

Corsec would like to congratulate our partner, SolidFire (A NetApp Company) on successfully completing the Common Criteria certification process for the Element OS 8 running on SF2405, SF4805, and SF9605 Storage Nodes and FC0025 Fibre Channel Nodes Version The certification underscores SolidFire’s commitment to providing secure and third-party validated products to Federal organizations and global enterprises. We are pleased and excited to have worked with the SolidFire team through this process over the past year.

Corsec’s demonstrated expertise in the storage domain continues to grow, ensuring companies like SolidFire have a shortened go to market cycle, and increased product hardening.

About Common Criteria

Common Criteria is an internationally recognized set of guidelines (ISO 15408), which define a common framework for evaluating security features and capabilities of Information Technology security products. The standard consists of several predetermined evaluation assurance levels, each one more stringent than the last. Common Criteria allows vendors to have their products tested against a chosen level by an independent third-party testing laboratory. The Common Criteria Mutual Recognition Agreement (CCRA) is a pact, which was designed to allow all evaluations up to an evaluation assurance level (EAL) 2, to be recognized by all participating countries, regardless of where the evaluation was completed. There are currently 25 countries involved in the CCRA, including the United States and Canada, with others that follow unofficially such as the EU. The U.S. government mandates common Criteria certification of security products for federal purchases. The National Information Assurance Acquisition Policy, NSTISSP No. 11, requires agencies to purchase only those commercial security products that have met specified third-party assurance requirements and have been tested by an accredited national laboratory.
