SolarWinds Orion Suite v3.0 Receives Common Criteria Certification

SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced that the SolarWinds Orion Suite for Federal Government v3.0 is now certified for Common Criteria to Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 2+ in the Spanish Common Criteria Scheme (SCCS). The Common Criteria is an international set of guidelines and specifications designed to ensure information security products meet agreed-upon security standards for government deployments in 30 nations. Conformance is verified through laboratory evaluation and scheme certification.

"SolarWinds products are used by governments around the world to continuously monitor and secure their IT infrastructure and applications," said Mav Turner, VP of Product Strategy, SolarWinds. "The Orion Suite regularly undergoes Common Criteria evaluation and certification to ensure we are delivering products that meet or exceed the highest international security standards. Our research indicates that threats posed by careless or malicious insiders and foreign governments are at an all-time high, which makes our continued investment in this evaluation process critical."

The Orion Suite for federal government v3.0 includes:

  • Network Performance Monitor v12.2
  • Server & Application Monitor v6.6
  • Network Configuration Manager v7.7
  • Network Traffic Analyzer v4.2.3
  • IP Address Manager v4.6
  • User Device Tracker v3.3
  • VoIP & Network Quality Manager v4.4.1
  • Web Performance Monitor v2.2.1
  • Enterprise Operations Console v2.0
  • Storage Resource Monitor v6.6
  • Virtualization Manager v8.2

The Orion Suite v3.0 leverages the Orion Platform, a modular and highly scalable platform that unifies data from multiple IT layers into an application-centric view. The platform is designed to enable powerful, end-to-end hybrid IT management, and deliver multi-cloud visibility along with deep on-premises monitoring. It incorporates a simple drag-and-drop dashboard to visualize infrastructure and application relationships, helping IT professionals monitor, troubleshoot, and improve performance across hybrid environments. It also provides the flexibility to add modules as needs grow.

EWA-Canada, an Intertek Company, has a Common Criteria Testing Laboratory (CCTL) accredited by the Standards Council of Canada and approved by Canada's Communications Security Establishment (CSE). EWA-Canada's CCTL evaluated SolarWinds software and determined that it met all of the requirements of this security certification. EWA-Canada's CCTL, in conjunction with its partner lab in the Spanish Common Criteria Scheme, carried out the evaluation of the SolarWinds Orion Suite v3.0. EWA-Canada is recognized for its extensive experience with Common Criteria evaluations, enabling companies to manage the process and ensure their products meet important certification requirements. Previous versions of the SolarWinds Orion Suite and SolarWinds Log & Event Manager have been certified under the Common Criteria; more details are available here.
