NetScout System’s  nGenius Service Assurance Solution has been certified by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for the Department of Defense (DoD) Unified Capabilities Approved Products List (UC APL), and approved by the National Information Assurance Partner (NIAP) as Common Criteria certified at Evaluation Assurance Level 3 (EAL 3+).

The UC APL certification creates and maintains a single consolidated list of products that have successfully completed Interoperability (IO) and Information Assurance (IA) certification. It assures that products have been independently verified to be compliant with the requirements of the Defense Information Systems Network, which is mandatory in order to connect to the DISA network. DISA provides information technology and communication support to the U.S. President, Vice President, Secretary of Defense, military service and combatant commands, and connects to all branches of the military, as well as related services, agencies and coalition partners.

Common Criteria, an international standard for computer security certification, provides assurance that the process of specification, implementation and evaluation of a computer security product has been conducted in a rigorous and standard manner. Industries with high security requirements, such as healthcare and financial services, often value the third party validation of the Common Criteria Certification as part of their purchasing processes.
