Spirent Communications announces the launch of CyberFlood, a next-generation security and performance testing solution.
Touted as an easy-to-use, comprehensive testing platform suitable for complex testing scenarios, users can ensure, that, their security and performance testing addresses their unique environments by emulating realistic traffic volume, threats, and attack scenarios including fuzzing, malware, and DDoS attacks.
Tailored for team testing, CyberFlood’s intuitive web UI extends easy-to-use best practices for faster, repeatable, and more accurate testing. Users can easily view all testing activities at-a-glance on the dashboard, including running and recently completed tests.
“CyberFlood differentiates itself on security. An example would be its Advanced Malware offering. This new offering provides thousands of new malware samples per month including zero-day malware allowing you to find the holes in your threat landscape”, said David DeSanto, Director, Products and Threat Research of Spirent Communications. “CyberFlood Advanced Fuzzing combines the two main fuzzing strategies, generation-based and mutation-based, into one new intelligence driven strategy to provide you greater depth and breadth in your testing to find more issues than previously possible.”
Regardless of being local or globally-dispersed, teams including IT, QA and engineering can now quickly and effectively test, validate and roll out their app-aware devices and infrastructures. Fully extensible, CyberFlood is known to allow teams to easily adjust test parameters to create unique attack patterns and finely tuned application mixes to test and stress security devices.
“Continual testing based on the current threat landscape is key to protect against new malware, the complexity of new threats and increased global security concerns,” said John Weinschenk, General Manager, Spirent Enterprise and Application Security. “Proactive and solid testing methodologies should take into consideration the four variables that cohesively function together to produce reliable test results. These are performance, availability, security and scale. CyberFlood was developed specifically to address all four of these critical areas.”
Additionally, the new solution helps enterprises, services providers and network equipment manufacturers validate their services, devices and infrastructures today as well as prepare for the future.
