Ixia adds portable security and application testing solutions

Test and measurement (T&M) vendor Ixia today announced the launch of portable security and application testing solutions.

Besides delivering application and security testing to enterprises, PerfectStorm ONE addresses the demand of security and network equipment manufacturers to help showcase product performance in the field during the proof-of-concept cycle.

By unifying Ixia’s IxLoad and BreakingPoint software applications into a portable system, PerfectStorm ONE solutions can simulate millions of real-world end-user environments to test every element of the data center.

The company said PerfectStorm ONE gives enterprises actionable insight into network performance, system limitations and security resiliency to right-size data centers and reduce security incidents in live networks via a series of cost-effective, scalable solutions.

With options ranging from four 1Gbps ports to eight 10Gbps ports and even two 40Gbps ports, Ixia’s PerfectStorm ONE uses Ixia’s Application and Threat Intelligence program to simulate over 245 applications and 35,000 malicious attacks and give enterprises of all sizes the confidence that their live networks can handle real-world application, attack and load traffic.

Systems engineers can perform onsite validation of their systems during the customer proof-of-concept phases with an optional carrying case of PerfectStorm ONE.

The company claims performance of up to 60M concurrent HTTP sessions at 2M new sessions per second along with 20 Gbps SSL throughput at 200,000 new SSL sessions per second.
