Tenable Network Security Awarded Common Criteria Certification for Continuous Monitoring Platform

November 15, 2012

Columbia, MD

Tenable Maintains Conformance with Internationally Recognized IT Security Standard

Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in Unified Security Monitoring (USM), today announced it has been awarded Common Criteria certification, again meeting the rigorous security requirements defined by the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation.

Internationally recognized as the evaluation standard for IT security products, the Common Criteria Certification is mandated for all IT solutions purchased by the U.S. federal government, as well as 25 other countries. Currently, Tenable’s products are relied upon throughout the U.S. federal government, including the entire Department of Defense, and 12 of the 14 U.S. Federal Civilian Departments.

Tenable’s USM platform has been certified under Common Criteria (CC) Evaluation at Evaluation Assurance Level Two Augmented with Flaw Remediation (EAL2+). The Target of Evaluation (TOE) includes all the elements that comprise a full deployment of Tenable’s USM platform, including SecurityCenter™, Nessus® vulnerability scanner, Log Correlation Engine™ (LCE), Passive Vulnerability Scanner™ (PVS), 3D Tool, and xTool.

“Organizations are battling sophisticated and relentless cybercriminals on an increasingly global scale, and standards like Common Criteria help ensure that security products are effective and trustworthy across international borders,” said Ron Gula, CEO of Tenable Network Security. “By keeping pace with Common Criteria’s meticulous standards, we demonstrate our dedication to constant improvement and an ability to stay ahead of today’s complex security threat landscape.”

With over one million users, Tenable is the top choice for businesses of all sizes, governments, and universities to manage network threats. The company’s flagship vulnerability management products, Nessus and SecurityCenter, are used by the most demanding security professionals and compliance auditors at 15,000 organizations worldwide. The company's technology is the cornerstone for information security in many of the world's largest private and government organizations.

Tenable's USM platform incorporates the world's most accurate vulnerability sensors with the industry's largest database of vulnerabilities, threats, and compliance data, delivering real-time network vulnerability intelligence and threat correlation.

Tenable recently secured strategic relationships with Accel Partners and In-Q-Tel to further accelerate the company’s mission of helping its customers stay ahead of emerging challenges, such as cloud, mobile, and virtual technologies, and to continue its expansion globally.

The National Information Assurance Project (NIAP) is a U.S. government initiative between the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Security Agency. NIAP sponsors a variety of projects and activities, including the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS). The Common Criteria is a recognized ISO standard (ISO/IEC15408) for evaluation of security measures in a given product. Many government agencies require that products they deploy have been evaluated under the Common Criteria process.
