What to test


Next-generation network security

Test your network’s ability to detect and prevent incidents and attacks, as well as its throughput, performance, availability, and security


BYOD—bring your own device

Test network infrastructure resilience by emulating thousands of applications. Test for malware, vulnerability,  availability and policy enforcement effectiveness


Cybersecurity framework

Simulate real-world application traffic to test your network’s ability to detect, isolate and prevent security attacks and its ability to allow continuous operation


Security in application-aware networks

Detect and classify network traffic, then verify you can control detected applications, test policy enforcement, and validate network scalability, performance, and security


Streaming media and content delivery

Understand your content delivery network’s ability to handle large and unpredictable user volumes, as well as its end-to-end Quality of Experience (QoE)


Virtualization and cloud security

Test virtual appliance performance and scalability, the impact of live migration on user experience and the effectiveness of virtual firewalls for securing adjacent machines

Next-generation network security

Today’s IT teams need granular visibility of data passing through the network, giving rise to a new generation of network security solutions like Next Generation Firewall, IDS and IPS.
