Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) Testing
Battle-test Intrusion Prevention Systems with live attacks and your unique network traffic
Designed to detect and intercept malicious activities while allowing legitimate traffic to access an organization’s network, intrusion prevention systems (IPSs) must be up to date at all times to catch the latest threat or zero-day attack. If an IPS fails to detect and mitigate even a single flow of malicious traffic, an organization is left vulnerable to viruses, worms, and exploits that can access the corporate network and potentially bring it down. Proper IPS validation must include the very latest high-traffic attack conditions, real-world application traffic, and malformed traffic.
Ixia BreakingPoint Actionable Security Intelligence (ASI) solutions enable you to test your IPS devices under harsh, real-world conditions prior to and after deployment to confirm functional accuracy. Drawing from more than 160 stateful application protocols and more than 34,000 security attacks, Ixia BreakingPoint ASI solutions battle-test any IPS device using the actual behavior of wired and wireless users.
With Ixia BreakingPoint IPS testing solutions you will:
- Know for certain how your IPS will perform under massive loads and in the unique conditions of your infrastructure, under real-world scenarios that include attacks and malformed packets as well as benign application traffic
- Pinpoint potential vulnerabilities with live security attacks and malware, plus obfuscations and evasions
- Configure simulations in just minutes with a user-friendly interface and extensive automation to address many different use-case scenarios
Learn how you can use Ixia BreakingPoint's Firewall/IPS testing service to quickly make the right decisions for your unique network needs.
