DISA Issues Security Technical Implementation Guide for Crunchy Data's PostgreSQL Database - top government contractors - best government contracting eventThe Defense Information Systems Agency has released a Security Technical Implementation Guide for Crunchy Data Solutions relational database management platform.

DISA's STIG for Crunchy Data's PostgreSQL database seeks to guide agencies on how to field the database platform in government-run networks in compliance with the Defense Department's security requirements, the company said Thursday.

PostgreSQL is an open-source database that comes with the Crunchy Certified PostgreSQL distribution platform that features PostGIS geospatial extensions and audit logging extension tools.

The company also secured the Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 2+ certification for the Crunchy Certified PostgreSQL platform after it met computer security requirements.

“This STIG, combined with our Common Criteria certification, will help us support the U.S. government's efforts to adopt open source software to reduce costs and unwanted vendor lock-in,“ said Crunchy Data CEO Bob Laurence.
