BlueCat IP Address Management (IPAM), DNS and DHCP Solutions Achieve Common Criteria EAL 2+ Certification

TORONTO – November 26, 2013 – BlueCat, the leading provider of intelligent IP Address Management (IPAM) solutions, has earned Common Criteria EAL 2+ Certification for Adonis DNS/DHCP Server 6.7.1-P3 (BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server) and Proteus IP Address Manager 3.7.2-P2 (BlueCat Address Manager).

Common Criteria is an internationally recognized standard that provides a rigorous, transparent and repeatable evaluation of the security capabilities of information technology hardware and software. Common Criteria was developed with contributions from six nations including federal standards organizations in Canada and the U.S. Numerous security conscious organizations worldwide require the independent evaluation of IT products against generally accepted standards.

“IP Address Management, DNS and DHCP solutions are critical to ensuring secure, always-on business connectivity,” says Brad Micklea, VP of Product Management at BlueCat. “This certification reinforces BlueCat’s ability to provide immense value in both public and private sector organizations globally. We are proud to be able to offer our clients products that meet the industry’s highest security standards.”

BlueCat’s IPAM, DNS and DHCP solutions were evaluated using CygnaCom’s Security Evaluation Laboratory (SEL), an accredited National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria Testing Laboratory (CCTL) authorized 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 is a collaboration of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Security Agency (NSA).

“We are happy to confirm that the BlueCat Adonis 6.7.1-P3 and Proteus 3.7.2-P2 products were tested and the results were found to be in conformance with the Common Criteria requirements,” says Nithya Rachamadugu, Director, Security Evaluation Laboratory, CygnaCom Solutions.
