Infoblox Helps Global Businesses and Governments Guard Against Growing Cyber
Common Criteria EAL-2 certification and network control solutions reinforce
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- February 27, 2013
Infoblox Inc., the automated network control company, today announced that it
has become the first and only DDI (DNS, DHCP and IP address Management) vendor
to achieve Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 2 (EAL-2) certification.
The certification, in combination with new security offerings, demonstrates
Infoblox’s commitment to protecting customers from evolving security threats.
Common Criteria is one of the highest internationally recognized sets of
guidelines for evaluating security product features and capabilities. Infoblox
products covered by the certification include Infoblox Trinzic DDI^TM,
Infoblox GRID^TM and Infoblox Trinzic Reporting^TM. The Common Criteria
evaluation was performed in accordance with both the international Common
Criteria standards (ISO/IEC 15408) and the guidance provided by the Common
Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS), known as the National
Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP), an organization managed jointly by
the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National
Security Agency (NSA).
“The network has become a common target for malicious hacker attacks and a
variety of other cyber threats. Governments and private enterprises are
seeking a higher level of security for all of their network elements,” said
Arya Barirani, VP Product Marketing, Infoblox. “As the only DDI vendor to
achieve this highly rigorous security certification, we help our customers
feel more confident about the security of their Infoblox deployment.”
Cloud computing, software-defined networking (SDN), bring-your-own-device
(BYOD) and IPv6 are redefining the network and increasing complexity and
risk. As threats grow in volume and sophistication, the DNS underpinnings of
these services has become a target for a new class of malware that seeks to
exploit DNS. In January 2013, Infoblox introduced new security offerings to
help government and enterprise customers better manage such challenges and
address the emerging threat landscape.
