LogPoint Receives Common Criteria Certification

We are very proud to announce that we have achieved the Common Criteria (CC) certification at the evaluation assurance level (EAL) 3+ level for the LogPoint SIEM product.

Ensuring Commitment & Quality

Achieving the Common Criteria certification demonstrates LogPoint’s commitment to providing high quality security solutions to its customers, as well as LogPoint’s ability to perform software development following processes and requirements that guarantee the security and quality of the product.

The certification opens up for new ventures in markets and industries where the EAL3+ is a requirement for software.

Security-conscious customers, such as the government offices, law enforcement, intelligence, military and financial institutions require Common Criteria Certification as a determining factor in purchasing decisions – and we anticipate that more companies will be interested in this type of certificate the future.

This level of certification assures our customers around the world that LogPoint is safekeeping their trusted information.

The Certification – an Official Validation

The certification testifies that the LogPoint product meets the defined security functional requirements as well as the remediation process requirements for identified vulnerabilities.

More explicitly the certification evaluates the developer’s handling of detected vulnerabilities, the development environmental controls and the product’s configuration management, with independent verification of the developer’s testing results.

The Common Criteria certification of the LogPoint SIEM solution is an important step because the solution is now officially validated to support security functions covering Security Audit, User Data Protection, Identification and Authentication, Security Management, Protection of the collected Data and Access to these. 

Cooperation with The Boeing Company & ATSEC

In late 2013, LogPoint entered into collaboration with the American giant, The Boeing Company, to reach an EAL3+ certification for the LogPoint SIEM platform. EAL 3+ is among the highest grades for commercial products.

At the time of signing the partnership agreement, CEO of LogPoint, Jesper Zerlang stated:

“We are extremely excited about the partnership with Boeing that will elevate the LogPoint platform to the Tier 1 in the market and place us among the best enterprise SIEM security solutions"

LogPoint has performed the certification work in close corporation with the ATSEC, a government accredited laboratory in the United States, China, Germany and Sweden. 

ATSEC tested and validated the security, performance and reliability of the solution against the Common Criteria Standard for Information Security Evaluation (ISO/IEC 15408) at EAL3 augmented with flaw remediation requirements (ALC.FLR.1). The certification has been issued by CSEC - the certification body for IT security under the Swedish Defense.

Common Criteria

Common Criteria is an internationally recognized set of guidelines (ISO/IEC 15408) used by governments and other organizations to assess the security capabilities of technology products.

Under the Common Criteria, products are evaluated according to strict standards for features such as security functionality, the handling of security vulnerabilities, and the environment in which the supporting processes take place.

Following the completion of a Common Criteria security evaluation an IT product or system is assigned a grade from EAL1 to EAL7. To achieve a specific EAL grade there are certain requirements to documentation, analysis, and testing – and the higher the grade, the more detail is required.

Common Criteria gives customers visibility and confidence in the security of technology products and allow the customers to make better and more informed decisions.

The Common Criteria has been in effect since 1999 and the product certifications are recognized by 26 nations globally.
