SolarWinds Orion Suite v4.0 Undergoes Common Criteria Evaluation

SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced the SolarWinds Orion Suite for Federal Government v4.0 is undergoing evaluation for Common Criteria at the Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 2+ by the Netherlands Scheme for Certification in the Area of IT Security (NSCIB). In addition, SolarWinds Security Event Manager (SEM) v2019.4 is undergoing evaluation for Common Criteria at the Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 2+ by the Singapore 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, functional, and assurance standards for government deployments in 30 nations. Conformance is verified through laboratory evaluation and scheme certification.

"It's now more important than ever to maintain our investment in Common Criteria's stringent evaluation process," said Ross Fujii, vice president of research and development partnerships, SolarWinds. "With the onset of COVID-19 and the subsequent move among government agencies to a remote workforce, IT professionals are facing increasingly complex IT environments. Our research indicates this complexity is a significant obstacle to maintaining and improving IT security. In undergoing Common Criteria's evaluation, SolarWinds is taking another step to ensure our solutions continue to meet the critical security needs of IT professionals in the public sector."

The Orion Suite for Federal Government 4.0 includes the following:

  • Enterprise Operations Console v2.2
  • IP Address Manager v4.9
  • Log Analyzer v2.1
  • Network Configuration Manager v8.0
  • Network Performance Monitor v12.5

  • Storage Resource Monitor v6.9
  • User Device Tracker v3.4

The Orion Suite 4.0 leverages the Orion Platform, a modular and highly scalable platform designed to unify data from multiple IT layers into an application-centric view. The platform enables powerful, end-to-end hybrid IT management and delivers 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.

SolarWinds Security Event Manager, which replaced SolarWinds Log & Event Manager, can be used to collect and normalize event logs generated across hybrid networks and systems into a central location, detect and protect against advanced cyberthreats, respond to cyberincidents with unique user-defined actions, and help demonstrate regulatory and industry compliance. The solution automates many security information and event management (SIEM) activities to help IT and security professionals accelerate threat detection, response, and reporting, pulling from an integrated threat intelligence feed designed to quickly identify known bad actors in event log data.
