    Testing Now Complete: Security Analytics 7.2.5 for DoDIN APL

    Symantec Security Analytics (SA) has completed testing and is awaiting achieved placement on the rigorous Department of Defense Information Network (DoDIN) Approved Products List* (APL) for version 7.2.5. This accomplishment represents a significant milestone demonstrating that SA conforms to DoD requirements. DoDIN APL has prerequisites of both Common Criteria (CC) certification and Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 validation, both of which have been obtained. SA then had to undergo further conformance testing against numerous Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) and Security Requirements Guides (SRGs). As part of the conformance testing, the SA product was also tested against the Defense Information Systems Network (DISN) connectivity requirements including CAC, OCSP, remote logging, and IPv6. Before a product may be listed, it must successfully complete a multi-week testing effort at a U.S. military facility. SA has recently completed this testing effort at Fort Meade, Maryland under the "Cybersecurity Tools" device type and has now been placed on the APL.

    About The DoDIN APL

    The DoDIN APL is the single consolidated list of products that affect communication and collaboration across the DoDIN. The list was developed in accordance with DoD Instruction (DoDI) 8100.04 and is managed by the DISA Approved Products Certification Office (APCO). The APL process provides for an increased level of confidence through Cybersecurity and Interoperability (IO) certification. The DoDIN APL is the single approving authority for all Military Departments (MILDEPs) and DoD agencies in the acquisition of communications equipment that is to be connected to the Defense Information Systems Network (DISN) as defined by the Unified Capabilities Requirements (UCR). Placement on the APL signifies that a product is eligible for use across the DoD.

    *Note: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Fort Meade DoD facility has been delayed in posting the Security Analytics 7.2.5 approved APL PDF. Stay tuned for an update when that is available.
