Security Report 2017

Ixia reveals security insights in 2017 Security Report. 

Ixia has 20 years of experience testing networking and network-security appliances.  We also provide the industry’s highest performing network packet broker. Along the way, we have seen a dramatic increase in your attack surface, and not just because of additional malware. Organizations must grapple with new cloud technologies, mobile devices on the network, a host of new compliance and monitoring tools, and the rise of the Internet of things.

We analyze the impacts of these new trends in our 2017 Security Report, including examinations of the shifting environment of network security, how security reach is expanding, new threats, and new areas of vulnerability. Download the Ixia 2017 Security Report to learn more.

Understand Your Security Fabric

Reinforce Your Solid Foundation

Network security is about finding and fixing vulnerabilities before they hurt you—in products, applications, connections, people, or processes.

Improve the effectiveness of your security appliances and the efficiency of your infrastructure with the Ixia Security Architecture and the Ixia Security Fabric.

Ixia Security Architecture makes applications and networks stronger by testing their security strength, then enabling and activating a powerful Security Fabric that boosts the power of existing security tools. 

Ixia Security

See how a security fabric can bolster your infrastructure

In operation, the Ixia Security Architecture bolsters enterprise security by enabling an active security fabric. The Ixia Security Fabric is a context-aware, self-healing, resilient dataflow distribution architecture that increases the effectiveness of analytics and security tools by optimizing their data access. This ensures intelligent data routing, filtering and load balancing the right data to the right tools, every time, even when the data is encrypted. 

To reinforce your security defenses, Ixia’s Security Fabric offers:

  • Vision ONE network packet brokers with context-awareness, to identify the application and geolocation associated with incoming and outgoing traffic.
  • ThreatARMOR threat intelligence appliance with real-time updates, to offload blocking of malicious traffic from your other security tools. 

With intelligence-based filtering, you can reduce the load on your existing security appliances to boost the efficiency and ROI of your security infrastructure.

Test and Train for Strength

Challenge your security solutions from every angle to reduce your risk. Understand user experience from application to protocol, network performance to connections, user load to traffic-type scalability.


Ensure attack readiness. Train to think like attackers and know exactly how to respond, with security attacks and heavy traffic loads during beta testing and pre-production.
