Keysight Earns New Security Certifications
Thursday, August 13, 2020 | Comments

Keysight Technologies announced that it has earned new security certifications for its full Vision portfolio of network packet brokers (NPB) that enable federal and regulated industries to strengthen network visibility and security.

Cybersecurity has become a critical component of government and industry systems as society’s reliance on a digital infrastructure continues to escalate. These security certifications allow Keysight to provide government agencies with advanced network visibility for protecting systems, networks and programs from digital attacks. Cyberattacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes.

The first certification was Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 1 validation. Keysight completed this validation for all NPBs in addition to earlier certifications, and the validation is valid for Vision X, Vision ONE, Vision 7300, Vision Edge 10S, Vision Edge 100, Vision Edge 40 and the TradeVision market data monitoring platform, as well as the Vision Edge OS models 7712, 5812 and 7816. The certificates will also be valid on future Vision NPBs. The Common Criteria certification for Network Device Protection Profile builds upon Keysight’s Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2 accreditation. The Common Criteria is an international standard (ISO 15408) for validating products that meet specific security requirements. The features and capabilities of a security product are evaluated through a rigorous third-party evaluation and testing process. The standard is used as the basis for approving US Federal government purchases of information assurance products.

Keysight’s NPBs are now listed on the Department of Defense (DoD) Information Network Approved Products List (DoDIN APL) under the cybersecurity tools category. Under the auspices of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), the DoDIN APL is the only listing of equipment by DoD to be fielded in DoD networks.

Keysight’s Vision portfolio of NPBs deliver real-time, end-to-end dynamic network intelligence for physical, virtual, software defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) based infrastructure. They deliver control, coverage and performance seamlessly to protect and improve critical networking, data center and cloud business assets. As a result of an improved understanding of the network and data center, IT teams can quickly resolve performance bottlenecks, troubleshoot problems, and improve data center automation, as well as maximize utilization of expensive network analysis and security tools.

“Keysight is committed to helping government agencies and other regulated organizations worldwide protect their networks and data,” said Kelly Ambriz, government solutions unit leader of Keysight’s Network Applications & Security group. “This accomplishment signifies that Keysight’s Vision NPBs meet the stringent security requirements of government agencies and serves as a clear demonstration of our support for the government market.”
