Ixia Demos Native 100GbE Interface Security Test

Ixia demonstrated its "PerfectStorm" 100GbE - an application and security testing platform that supports 100GbE native interfaces.

A demo at this week's 2015 RSA Conference uses the new hardware for Juniper Networks' SRX5800 Services Gateway to demonstrate carrier-grade, next-generation firewall technology scaling to Two Terabits per second (2 Tbps) of workloads.

Ixia said its PerfectStorm scales to nearly a terabit of application traffic in a single system and generates stateful applications and malicious traffic that simulate millions of real-world end-users to validate next generation infrastructure devices.

“The threat landscape continues to evolve and service providers and data center operators need to secure their 100GbE core networks,” said Denise Shiffman, corporate vice president of product management, Juniper Networks.

“Companies are forced to not only meet greater and unpredictable demands for bandwidth on their network but also ensure they have efficient, fast and scalable protection in place. Ixia and its PerfectStorm solution are instrumental in enabling us to validate and test our new hardware for the SRX5800 Services Gateway at massive scale.”
