NIAP Grants Common Criteria Certification to Crystal Group’s Rugged Firewall

Crystal Group has secured a National Information Assurance Partnership Common Criteria certification for its RCS5516FW purpose-built, virtual private network-capable firewall.

The certification validates the effectiveness of the firewall’s layered protection for networked communications in multiple harsh domains.

With its rugged form factor design, the firewall offers cybersecurity defense needed to promote seamless, high-performance networking even when subjected to extreme temperatures, moisture, shock, vibration and other challenging conditions, Crystal Group said.

Todd Prouty, a business development manager at Crystal Group, described the RCS5516FW firewall as a supply chain-secure solution aimed at preventing malicious tampering and safeguarding networks that warfighters rely on for situational awareness and mission-critical functions, including missile defense.

Crystal Group has a long-standing mission-essential partnership with the Department of Defense and other U.S. government entities.

The company offers a portfolio of computer and electronic hardware, including an optional NIAP-certified IPsec module on their RCS7450 rugged switch, which it delivers in support of defense programs and applications in key U.S. industries and sectors. Additionally, Crystal Group provides in-house customization, engineering, integration, configuration management, product life-cycle planning and support services to its clients.
