Juniper Networks Routers, Switches and Security Solutions Achieve Common Criteria EAL-3 Certification

Multiple Certifications Satisfy Critical Requirement for Defense and Civilian Government Procurements

(PresseBox) ( Sunnyvale/Calif., )
Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced routing, switching and security solutions that have achieved Common Criteria (ISO 15408) certification for information assurance and security at Evaluation Assurance Level 3 (EAL-3). Common Criteria certifications are considered a prerequisite in many government procurements in the U.S. and abroad, and reflect extensive evaluations of the security features and capabilities of information technology and networking products in clearly specified, real-world operating environments.

The Juniper routers and switches attaining Common Criteria EAL-3 certification from the UK Certification Body include the M Series Multiservice Edge Routers (M7i, M10i, M40e, M120, and M320); the T Series Core Routers (T320, T640, T1600); the MX Series Ethernet Services Routers (MX240, MX480, and MX960); and the EX Series Ethernet Switches (EX3200 and EX4200). Juniper Networks J Series Services Routers (J2320, J2350, J4350, and J6350) were certified at EAL-3 in Australia, as were the recently announced Juniper Networks SRX5600 and SRX5800 Series Services Gateways.

All of these solutions were certified running JUNOS® Software 9.3. JUNOS Software is a single source network operating system integrating routing, switching and security services.

"Governments and industries around the world use Common Criteria to ensure rigorous and standardized evaluations of IT solutions in actual deployments," said Brian Roach, Juniper Networks vice president, Federal (U.S.). "Juniper has been able to leverage its single-source network operating system model to achieve these high levels of information assurance certifications simultaneously across a wide range of routing, switching and security solutions."

EAL-3 evaluates a product in design stage, with independent verification of the developer's testing results, and evaluates the developer's checks for vulnerabilities, the development environmental controls and the product's configuration management.
