Pivot3, with the help of Corsec, has earned the Common Criteria Assurance Assurance Continuity certification for its Acuity 10.6 hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) software platform, Pivot3 announced on Thursday.

“As more data is generated beyond the datacenter, federal customers require infrastructure solutions with the intelligence necessary to process and analyze across the edge, core and cloud – but without compromising security,” said Ben Bolles, vice president of product at Pivot3. “The Common Criteria certification is considered the gold standard for security, providing Pivot3’s customers with the confidence in knowing that their most mission-critical environments are protected and secure.”

Pivot3 is the only HCI vendor with Common Criteria certification of a native-NVMe solution with policy-based management. The certification will provide government and enterprise customers with new capabilities to meet the highest security standards across the edge, core and cloud.

Government agencies have started to incorporate edge strategies into the initiatives to support the management of highly distributed data and infrastructure, as enterprise-generated data is being created and processed outside of datacenters and the cloud. With the Pivot3’s certification, the company will automate data protection, security and workload performance.

The Common Criteria certification process is comprised of several evaluation assurance levels and product security testing performed by accredited independent, third-party laboratories. The evaluation is recognized by over 28 participating countries, and others who follow the Common Criteria program unofficially such as the European Union.

The U.S. government mandates Common Criteria certification of security products for purchases. All U.S. federal agencies are required to purchase commercial products that have met specified third-party assurance requirements and have been tested by an accredited national laboratory. Most commercial organizations also require Common Criteria certification for infrastructure and software solutions due to the certification’s intense security standards.

“Pivot3’s achievement of the Common Criteria certification on the latest generation of its Acuity software platform brings a powerful range of new capabilities to this market, providing agencies with the intelligent solutions needed to serve citizens and protect our nation’s infrastructure,” said Matthew Appler, CEO, Corsec Security, Inc.
