Posted 05/10/2016

CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 10, 2016-- Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA), a leading provider of network testing, visibility, and security solutions, has launched the Ixia Xceed program to accelerate the sales cycle for the company’s technology partners, to provide implementation guidance for integrated solutions, and to create faster time-to-value for customers and channel partners.

Ixia’s Xceed program creates an ecosystem for its technology partners that facilitates collaboration amongst the industry’s leading security and performance experts in key technology areas including virtualization, big data analytics, and IoT. This collaboration helps ensure that customer networks, analysis tools, and applications are strong and reliable.

“From development, to market, to deployment, Ixia’s unique combination of test and visibility products enable our technology partners to provide their customers with full and immediate value from their security and performance monitoring solutions,” stated Scott Westlake, Vice President of Business Development for Ixia. “The goal of the Xceed program is to accelerate technology implementations and value for end-users, while driving new and profitable sales opportunities for partners.”

Ixia’s end-to-end network visibility portfolio, which includes the recently announced Vision ONE™ solution, helps technology partners improve the effectiveness and efficiency of their monitoring and security solutions and provide a quality user experience by providing access to the right data.

“Ixia’s test and visibility solutions enable our mutual channel partners to validate the scalability and resiliency of the joint Imperva/Ixia solution under realistic conditions,” said Ayelet Steinitz, Vice President of Business Development at Imperva, a leading provider of cyber security solutions that protect business critical data and applications. “This helps our customers select the solution that best meets their needs and accelerate time to value by leveraging a proven solution.”

Katie Colbert, Vice President, Global Technology Alliances for Riverbed commented, “Highly scalable end-to-end visibility is key to ensuring application performance and availability. Our partnership with Ixia leveraging VisionONE and Riverbed SteelCentral solutions provides customers the complete visibility they need to identify and address application, network and security-related performance problems before end users even notice.”

Ixia’s network test portfolio, including advanced BreakingPointTM Solution (BPS), combines end-to-end testing with continuous testing. Leading security, application, and network performance management providers leverage Ixia’s solutions to test the performance limits and security effectiveness of their next generation appliances and ensure their products operate fast, reliably, and securely throughout the product lifecycle.

“FireEye relies on Ixia to develop, sell, and deploy our market leading security products,” said Ed Barry, Vice President of Cyber Security Coalition at FireEye. “The Xceed Partner Program ensures our joint customers have comprehensive secure networks that quickly adapt to a dynamic threat environment.”

Ixia’s Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) test solutions demystify the virtualization process—what to virtualize and how—and offer a reliable tool for technology partners to measure success. Ixia delivers both traditional hardware-based performance testing, as well as virtualized solutions that help tech partners develop, sell, and deploy new products.

“Innovations in SDN, NFV and DevOps dramatically impact how enterprises develop and deploy applications,” stated Michael Masterson, Director of Strategy & Growth at Dynatrace. “Dynatrace’s partnership with Ixia helps our customers leverage these innovations to gain deep visibility and deliver a great digital experience for every user."
