Crestron said that its advanced control systems and touch panels have been approved by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) of the U.S. Department of Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).

Company officials said Crestron's tested products exceeded the minimum protocol requirements of strict information assurance (IA) assessments administered by JITC, and that Crestron control systems and touch panels scored higher than any other control system manufacturer in both Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) and IA tests.

"We achieved a perfect score in the JITC vulnerability test, with no high-, medium or low-impact findings, and this is a testament to Crestron engineering where network integrity and rock-solid stability are paramount," said Landon Lovett, Crestron's director of federal government markets, in a statement.

JITC certification earns Crestron control systems and touchscreens the highest levels of security clearance and allows its technology to be deployed into secure federal government network applications.

"While our test scores were very high, and we far exceeded the minimum JITC requirements, we will continue to improve the security and networthiness of Crestron government offerings....We encourage federal government agencies, the intelligence community, and all branches of the U.S. armed services where information security is critical, to inspect our JITC assessment and compare the results" Lovett continued.

In addition to the new JITC certification, company officials say Crestron control system technology also has earned a portfolio of critical certifications and compliance approvals required by U.S. Federal Government and branches of the U.S military, including Crosstalk Tested for JWICS Compliance of DigitalMedia, U.S. Army Certificate of Networthiness for RoomView Server Edition software, Tempest Compliance for Volatility, U.S. Navy Class A Shock Test Certification, DoD Section 508 Compliance, and IPV6 compliance.
