HP Networking has received the Evaluation Assurance Level 2 (EAL 2) Common Criteria (CC) certification for HP routers from the Union Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

HP Networking received the certification under the Indian common criteria certification scheme, and covers the HP MSR-SR series of routers.

“As organizations and government departments computerize and automate their operations, there is a dependency on IT to foster collaboration and deliver efficiency. Data protection and integrity is of paramount importance in this environment,” said Neelam Dhawan, Managing Director, HP India. “The EAL 2 certification is added recognition of the security, robustness and reliability of HP’s offerings and a reflection of our ability to evolve our offerings to meet next generation threats.”

“Over the past decade, there has been large proliferation of IT in every sector of society, including business and government. With information explosion, the industry is facing a challenging task to manage, store and prevent vulnerable information from cyber attacks from across the organization,” said Kapil Sibal, Cabinet Minister, ICT and Human Resources, GOI. “HP is the first company in India to have leveraged the CC certification process, having met the rigorous security standards established by the CC framework, to ensure IT security. We encourage other companies to use this framework, which has been brought by DIT, Govt. of India, to get their products certified and build more secured and robust IT systems in our country.”
