NIAP Director’s Corner
It gives me great pleasure to announce the first product to comply with the NIAP approved Network Device Protection Profile (NDPP) was evaluated and validated by our Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) colleagues. McAfee® Email Gateway (MEG) software v7.0.1, running on appliance models 4000-B, 4500-B, 5000(B,C,&C-2U), 5500(B&C) and the Content Security Blade Server. You may find the product listed on the CCRA Portal under the Boundary Protection Devices and Systems section.
This product complies with NSTISSP 11 and therefore is available for U.S. acquisition to protect National Security Systems.
As we evolve NIAP’s Product Compliant List website, this product and others compliant with NIAP approved Protection Profiles will be visible. However, this area is still under construction. Therefore, we wanted to provide this announcement ensuring the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) was aware of Canada’s success and the ability to acquire this product within the US!
This is only the beginning.
The US has 26 products under evaluation against NIAP approved Protection Profiles. In addition to US efforts, we are teaming with Australia/New Zealand, Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom in collaborative Protection Profile evaluations. We welcome all CCRA Certificate Producer nations who wish to review, validate and use a NIAP approved Protection Profile, collaborate on a product evaluation or join a NIAP Technical Community to help develop a Protection Profile. Please review our Protection Profile tab for the latest information on NIAP approved PPs and PPs under development.
This is a new feature for NIAP’s Web Portal. The intent of the Director’s Corner is to provide a monthly blog on what’s happening within NIAP. We encourage your feedback and ideas if there is a topic of interest you would like discussed. Please send your note to the email below and ensure "Director’s Corner" is in the subject line.
