Tripwire’s latest version of its vulnerability management solution, Tripwire IP360, v9.0.1, has achieved Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 2 augmented with Flaw Remediation (EAL2+).
Internationally recognized as the evaluation standard for IT security products, Common Criteria certifications provide independent assurance to government and commercial agencies that the products being purchased satisfy security requirements for information systems.
“Tripwire IP360 has a long history of enabling governments to accurately prioritize risk and take action on their most exposed assets,” said Mitchell Jukanovich, vice president of federal at Tripwire. “Achieving the most current Common Criteria Certification illustrates Tripwire’s continuing commitment to meet increasingly stringent U.S. national and international security standards and is assurance that we’re bringing the most secure products to market.”
The certification was issued by the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), the Government of Canada’s center for IT security expertise, advice and guidance, and a participant of the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA). The CCRA brings together 28 nations who agree to accept a unified approach to the evaluations of IT products and protection profiles for information assurance and security.
As a vulnerability and security risk management solution, Tripwire IP360 provides a view of vulnerability risks across hybrid environments, including on-premise, in the cloud and in container-based environments. It offers both agent-based and agentless scanning options for an assessment of vulnerability risks, and prioritizes security risks within business context by combining business asset values with vulnerability scores.
Tripwire’s cyber integrity solutions are used across every DoD Branch service, including Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, numerous intelligence agencies and more than 85 percent of the Federal Government’s civilian agencies.
