Application and Security Test

In today's world of crippling cyber-attacks and dynamic applications, you need to know that your networks are secure and high-performing enough to handle the worst from cyber criminals and extreme-traffic anomalies. Complex system interactions make it difficult for you to optimize security performance and network resiliency. Any approach that fails to fully-validate network security and performance with realistic application load and attack techniques is insufficient and risky.

With Ixia’s BreakingPoint® application and security test solution, enterprises, service providers, and equipment manufacturers validate the stability, accuracy, and quality of networks and network devices. BreakingPoint’s unique design enables the creation of real-world legitimate traffic, distributed denial of service (DDoS), exploits, malware, and fuzzing at the same time and from the same port. Combined with full control of the load capacity and detailed per-simulated host reporting, this makes BreakingPoint the ideal simple-to-use and repeatable testing eco-system for modern network testing.

BreakingPoint provides test solutions ensure:

  • Network security
    • Maximize security investments with onsite network-specific proof-of-concept (PoC) validation
    • Optimize next-generation firewalls (NGFWs), intrusion prevention systems (IPS), and other security devices
    • Validate DDoS defenses
    • uild networks and cloud infrastructures that are resilient to attacks
  • Network performance
    • Ensure the always-on user experience in the midst of complexity and exploding traffic volume
    • Validate and optimize 3G and 4G/LTE networks under the most realistic conditions, using real mobile applications over mobile tunneling and roaming, and get per-user equipment (UE) statistics

Now, with the new BreakingPoint Virtual Edition (VE), enterprise IT departments have the same high-fidelity, real-world testing that security vendors and leading service providers use to ensure network security resilience – now in an elastic deployment model that makes sense for their business.

With the PerfectStorm™ load modules and XGS12™ chassis, BreakingPoint offers an all-in-one security and performance testing platform for massive-scale, stateful layer 4-7 application and security testing. It provides near Terabit levels of mixed application and malicious traffic to test all elements of today’s complex data centers. For a powerful yet portable form factor, PerfectStorm ONE 1GE/10GE and 10/40GE appliances scale from 4Gbps to 80Gbps of application traffic.

With PerfectStorm, Ixia delivers the first platform to seamlessly unify the IxLoad® and BreakingPoint software applications into a single, more powerful system to ensure the secure delivery of mission-critical applications.

The ATI program provides offers a simple way to create test flows of the malicious and user traffic your network must withstand. It provides updates every 2 weeks to ensure delivery of the industry's most up to date application and threat intelligence, and includes 290+ stateful application protocols and 36,000+ live malware samples.
