Spirent expands CyberFlood security

Spirent Communications plc (LSE:SPT) has announced the expansion of its family of industry-leading testing solutions with the introduction of two platforms that provide new ways to leverage CyberFlood functionality, the company said.

For users testing cloud and SDN/NFV environments, CyberFlood Virtual provides versatile deployment options previously unavailable for these use cases. The CF20 is an all-in-one appliance solution that packs the full capabilities of CyberFlood into a highly portable, multi-speed, compact form factor. Available immediately, both new platforms offer increased flexibility and scalability, expanding Spirent´s reach to include a broader range of customers.

With the CF20, users can deploy and start testing in minutes, using a single 1U appliance providing connectivity at 1G/10G/40G and 100G. The CF20 fits the needs of enterprises, service providers, and government organizations for bench-level testing and pre-deployment verification. Additionally, with twice the SSL/TSL testing capabilities of competing products, the CF20 is the ideal solution for testing the impact of the ever-increasing volumes of complex encrypted traffic.

For customers requiring security and performance solutions in virtual environments, CyberFlood Virtual provides the CyberFlood feature set in a scalable software solution designed for use in those environments. CyberFlood Virtual creates application and security traffic within and across virtual environments, exercising SDN/NFV security and performance devices, such as virtualized next-generation firewalls and intrusion prevention systems, with realistic traffic and attack/malware scenarios. As a software solution, CyberFlood Virtual enables users to simulate traffic on their own hardware and easily scale loads to meet their performance testing needs.
