25 More Head-Turning Security Products To See At RSA Conference 2011


Ixia IxLoad Attack

Ixia at RSA branched out from the testing of just converged IP networks and devices and showed off its new test suite that validates the security of a wide range of devices including firewalls, VPN gateways, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and anti-virus and anti-spam solutions. Ixia's IxLoad-Attack security solutions are fully integrated with its test platforms, performing attacks in conjunction with full line-rate multiplay traffic -- exposing vulnerabilities that are only visible under stress.

Network equipment manufacturers can simultaneously validate the security and performance of their devices. Enterprises can ensure their network security on a continuous basis. Service providers can offer complete outsourced security services to enterprises of all sizes. IxLoad-Attack has a database of over 6,000 attacks and recreates malicious traffic that exploits published vulnerabilities, and generates Internet-scale distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks in a controlled environment.
