Hewlett-Packard OpsBridge Undergoes Rigorous Common Criteria Evaluation Process

Hewlett-Packard OpsBridge Undergoes Rigorous Common Criteria Evaluation Process

Herndon, VA– August 3rd, 2015 – Hewlett Packard Development Company announced today that their product, Operations Bridge Premium v2015.x is officially in evaluation for an EAL2+ certification under the Spanish scheme. Common Criteria evaluation of security products is mandated for commercial information security products purchased by the U.S. government for use in national security systems. HP’s participation in this process illustrates the company’s commitment to providing the highest quality assurance to its customers.

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 26 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.

In order to facilitate the prompt completion of the Common Criteria evaluation process, HP has partnered with Corsec Security, Inc., who partners with companies worldwide to manage the process of security certifications and validations.
