AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced multiple products are now certified under the Common Criteria with the Spanish Common Criteria Scheme (SCCS), an international standard for computer security achieved by national laboratory testing and evaluation for evaluation assurance level (EAL) 2+.
