Sourcefire Malaysia's solutions have received Common Criteria certification, which shows that they are able to address the security requirements of federal government, said the cyber security solutions provider.

The solutions FirePOWER appliances, Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention Systems (NGIPS), Virtual NGIPS and Defense Center have achieved Common Criteria certification after stringent testing, according to Sourcefire Malaysia country manager Ivan Wen. "This internationally recognised standard for network security highlights Sourcefire's ability to satisfy the security requirements of top government and commercial organisations around the world, including the United States, Australia, Canada, Germany and United Kingdom, as well as in other 21 countries."

"We recognise the importance of meeting strict global security standards while continuing to innovate to provide solutions that afford our customers an advantage in an era of heightened attacks conducted by increasingly sophisticated hackers," said Wen.

He said that the testing was conducted by CygnaCom Solutions' Common Criteria Security Evaluation Laboratory (SEL), an accredited National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria Testing Laboratory (CCTL) authorised to conduct product evaluations according to the Common Criteria (CC) (ISO/IEC 15408) and the Common Evaluation Methodology (CEM) under the U.S. scheme.

NIAP validated products will be recognised in 25 other countries participating with the United States in the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement.
