Q1 Labs Completes Common Criteria Level 3+ Evaluation

QRadar Security Intelligence Platform Enters Internationally Recognized Security Certification Required by Governments Seeking to Procure Commercial Products

WALTHAM, Mass. – March 8, 2011 – Q1 Labs, the global provider of total security intelligence solutions, today announced its QRadar Security Intelligence Platform, including QRadar 7.0, has completed Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 3+ (EAL 3+) compliant with “U.S. Government Protection Profile Intrusion Detection System For Basic Robustness Environments Version 1.7” certification from the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS).

Common Criteria is an internationally recognized security certification required by the U.S. and certain other governments worldwide for departments and agencies seeking to procure commercial products. Common Criteria certification also assures businesses that a product has been certified as meeting a standard measure of security, whether it is used internally or in solutions for customers. Q1 Labs’ QRadar Security Intelligence Platform completed evaluation at EAL 3+ level of the Common Criteria scheme, as defined by ISO/IEC 15408-2 and ISO/IEC 15408-3, which address product functionality, development environment, documentation, and product testing measures.

“We are very excited to have completed our Common Criteria EAL-3+ certification. This level of certification demonstrates our commitment to achieving the highest security standards and compliance requirements,” said Jason Corbin, Vice President of Product Management for Q1 Labs. “Customers can rest assured knowing that the quality and efficacy of Q1 Labs QRadar Security Intelligence Platform has been independently validated.”

The evaluation was performed by Booz Allen Hamilton’s Common Criteria Testing Laboratory (CCTL). Booz Allen is one of only nine CCTLs approved by the National Information Assurance Partnership that meet U.S. Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme. These labs conduct IT security evaluations for conformance to the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation, International Standard ISO/IEC 15408. Booz Allen has a long history in providing both strategic consulting and evaluation services in common criteria and trust technology, as well as the spectrum of cyber security threats and defenses.

About Common Criteria

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Security Agency (NSA) established the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) to evaluate IT product conformance to the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation, an international standard. The program, officially known as the NIAP Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS) is a partnership between the public and private sectors to help organizations select commercial off-the-shelf information technology (IT) products that meet their security requirements and to help manufacturers of those products gain acceptance in the global marketplace. Twenty-four countries now recognize the Common Criteria as the official third-party evaluation criteria for IT security procedures.
