Application Assurance

Ixia BreakingPoint™ Virtual Edition (VE)

Application Performance and Security Resilience Solutions to validate, secure, and optimize physical and virtual networks. Threat Inteligence Testing , IP testing, LTE Testing, Network Traffic Emulation

In today's world of crippling cyber attacks and dynamic applications, organizations need to know that their networks are secure enough to handle the worst that cyber criminals can throw at them. But even with spending on security technologies at an all-time high, how confident are you in vendor decisions and the security architecture you are implementing? High-fidelity testing can replace guesswork-based uncertainty with fact-based confidence.

BreakingPoint Virtual Edition (VE) provides enterprise IT departments with 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.

Ixia BreakingPoint VE Virtualized Application and Security Resilience Testing Best of Show 2015

Build strong networks you can rely on by using BreakingPoint VE’s cost-effective, elastic, and sharable virtualized test capabilities to maximize security investments and optimize network performance:

  • Ensure network security resilience with added realism and scale (290+ apps, 3000+ prebuilt Superflows, 36,000+ security elements) so you can move beyond simple functional testing of technologies and networks to determine how they will perform in advance of going live to ensure successful application and security rollouts
  • Enable faster and more flexible testing with unrestricted licenses that scale from entry-level to high-performance assessment and provide the flexibility of 1Gbps increments starting at under £10K annual subscription

Reduce cost and achieve better ROI for IT projects using virtualization and industry-standard hardware platforms, and data-driven competitive proof of concepts that maximize IT investments
