White Paper

This paper provides insight into security performance testing that enables an enterprise to determine whether an encryption solution being considered will deliver the expected results when deployed on the enterprise’s own networks. It describes why there is a need to test, measure, validate, and deploy prospective security solutions using real-world traffic flows and obtain realistic intelligence, enabling an enterprise to preempt threats and protect its assets.

Advanced Fuzz Testing with SmartMutation Resources

On-Demand Webinar

Detecting defects prior to deploying software can proactively help in reducing vulnerabilities. Learn how fuzzing can be an indispensable part of your proactive security assurance strategy.

White Paper

TLS v1.3 is a huge leap forward for web based encrypted communication with improved security, and performance compared to its predecessors. Learn how to leverage tools and strategies that will provide visibility for further hardening of emerging diverse and unproven TLS v1.3 implementations.


To stay ahead of the evolving threat landscape, you need to think like a hacker and use tools superior to what they use to find issues within your solutions and services before they do. Our SmartMutation™ combines the two most common fuzzing techniques, generation-based and mutation-based, into an intelligent fuzzing strategy. This abundantly-scalable solution gives you the greatest depth and breadth in your fuzzing.

What can CyberFlood help you validate today?



Fuzz testing allows you to uncover previously undetected bugs and compromises while hardening your solution against random data. Discover vulnerabilities the same way hackers do and remediate weaknesses before they’re exploited.



Validate your DDoS mitigation strategy at scale with multi-10G line-rate attacks generating tens of million packets per second. Confirm legitimate user traffic is not inadvertently impacted by your DDoS protection all measured accurately by CyberFlood within one single test methodology.



Malware threats in 2015 increased 43% compared to the same period in 2014. Ensure you’re testing with near zero-day samples by leveraging CyberFlood and TestCloud.

Analyze your network’s security response. Emulate connections and activity on hundreds, or even thousands of non-corporate devices in a matter of minutes.

Realistic Application Traffic Reproduction

In today’s networks, the need to reconstruct live traffic for assessment is critical for successful deployment of network configurations, topologies and new network services. Modern networks now contain multiple state-aware devices that require realistic upper layer application traffic to fully exercise the network elements. Together, Gigamon and Spirent have created the industry’s first solution for recreating actual application traffic in pre-production environments. The joint effort will characterize the live application flows in a production network using the Application Intelligence module within the Gigamon Visibility Fabric. This meta information is used to model traffic in assessment tools, such as Spirent’s CyberFlood and Spirent TestCenter, where it is used to statefully recreate the client and server behavior application flows.

Advanced malware detection

Malware detection testing must be conducted at a very vulnerable area of your network—the perimeter. Test security devices, firewalls, proxies and gateways for their ability to identify and keep out malware. Spirent’s Advanced Malware testing solution provides the means to verify the network’s ability to defend against today’s sophisticated malware constructs with an up-to-date database of malware samples and from a variety of test vectors.

How strong is your malware testing?

As technology evolves, so does malware. Unfortunately, this means that broad technology trends often set the stage for powerful new forms of malware. For example, increasing infrastructure connectivity—including smart meters, intelligent sensors and remotely controlled highway signs—is creating increased risk for disruption of core services.
