SolarWinds IT Management Solutions Tested for Government Security Deployment

The Company Announces 11 Products Under Common Criteria Evaluation; Government Security News Honors SolarWinds' SIEM Solution

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 12/10/13 -- SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced that 11 SolarWinds IT management software solutions are collectively now under evaluation for certification in the Canadian Common Criteria Scheme (CCCS), an internationally recognized standard for computer security achieved by national laboratory testing and evaluation. In addition, SolarWinds Log & Event Manager, one of the 11 products under evaluation, was named finalist in Government Security News' Homeland Security Awards for Best Security Incident & Event Management (SIEM) Solution.

Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation
Common Criteria provides a broad range of evaluation criteria for commercial and nationally sensitive government-use IT security products. Federal IT users needing to run applications in National Security Systems (NSS) environments can look to Common Criteria-certified software for numerous compliant software solutions.

The SolarWinds Orion Suite, comprising the below solutions, as well as SIEM solution SolarWinds Log & Event Manager, are undergoing EAL 2+ evaluation for Common Criteria lab certification, with which IT pros can implement and use the software safely on Federal networks:

Electronic Warfare Associates (EWA)-Canada, a Common Criteria Testing Laboratory (CCTL) accredited by the Standards Council of Canada and approved by the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC), will evaluate the SolarWinds software to determine it meets the security certification, and if so, designate certification in 2014. 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.

"EWA-Canada is pleased to be working with SolarWinds on the Common Criteria evaluation of their Log & Event Manager, and Orion Suite products," stated Erin Connor, Director of EWA-Canada. "These evaluations demonstrate SolarWinds' commitment to providing high-quality solutions to support the mission-critical demands of IT professionals in the Federal Government and elsewhere. Undergoing Common Criteria Evaluation will instill confidence in current and future users that the SolarWinds products have undergone independent, standards-based verification and meet global security standards."

Government Security News (GSN): Homeland Security Awards
SolarWinds Log & Event Manager was also one of four finalists for Best SIEM Solution in GSN's Homeland Security Awards announced December 5. GSN judges evaluated the SIEM solutions on how they increase a client organization's security, how they fill a recognized government IT security need, the solution's technological innovation, and how flexible the solution is in meeting current and future organizational needs.

"SolarWinds Log & Event Manager offers the comprehensive security information and event management that government IT pros need to mitigate risks within their IT infrastructures," said Chris LaPoint, VP Product Management, SolarWinds. "We're proud to have this recognition from government security IT pros because it's a testament to our unique, user-centric approach to building tough, mission-ready solutions."
