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.

BreakingPoint® provides test solutions to help enterprises, service providers, and equipment manufacturers ensure:

  • Network security
    • Optimize firewalls, intrusion prevention systems (IPS), and other security devices
    • Mitigate distributed denial of service (DDoS) and other attacks
    • Build networks and cloud infrastructures that are resilient to attacks
    • Perform pre-purchase "bake-off" evaluations to know how security devices will perform on your particular network
  • Network performance
    • Ensure the always-on user experience in the midst of complexity and exploding traffic volume
    • Validate and optimize large 3G and 4G/LTE networks under the most realistic conditions

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
