SAN DIEGO, Feb. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that CyberC4®:Alert, a product from its RT Logic subsidiary, has been officially certified by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP), a program established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Security Agency (NSA), for Common Criteria certification. Officially known as the NIAP Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme for IT Security (CCEVS), the program serves as a partnership between the public and private sectors to validate that IT security products conform to international standards. CyberC4:Alert is a Security Information Event Manager (SIEM) specifically tailored for the unique needs of satellite ground networks.
CyberC4:Alert is part of the CyberC4 family of cyber security products for the satellite industry. The products address the increased vulnerabilities as satellite networks continue to become more netcentric, targeting the major cyber security gaps that can impede missions. In addition to CyberC4:Alert, the product suite includes CyberC4:Capture for protecting against insider threats and CyberC4:Guard for satellite control-related communications across unclassified and classified domains within secure networks. Each is available for standalone use, or can be integrated into a unified and layered "defense in-depth" solution for information and mission assurance.
CyberC4:Alert is the first SIEM designed for satellite ground networks and operations. CyberC4:Alert provides network administrators and information security officers with real-time situational awareness and incident response for cyber security situational awareness and mission assurance.
For a product to be considered for NIAP certification, it must undergo evaluation in the United States with a NIAP-approved Common Criteria Testing Laboratory (CCTL). Additionally, management from the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS) must officially accept the product for review. CyberC4:Alert now meets the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security at Evaluation Assurance Level 1 (EAL1).
