Spirent extends CyberFlood

Spirent Communications plc (LSE:SPT), a provider of test, measurement, assurance and analytics solutions for next-generation devices and networks, has announced the availability of the first solution using data breach emulation technology to provide holistic and hyper-realistic security testing of networks and devices for awareness of data breach and intruder activity, the company said.

This new solution, CyberFlood Data Breach Assessment, is a component of Spirent´s CyberFlood product line, extending it into production environments for continuous testing of live networks and devices.

As a holistic automated solution within the live network, CyberFlood Data Breach Assessment provides active monitoring and ongoing evaluations such as Purple Team assessments. Unlike testing solutions that simulate attacks, CyberFlood Data Breach Assessment uses actual attack components, true hacker activity and malware executables to assess an organization´s vulnerability to cybercrime. A study from the Center for Strategic and International Studies estimates that cybercrime costs the global economy USD 600 billion.

Spirent Communications offers test, measurement, analytics and assurance solutions for next-generation devices and networks. The company provides products, services and information for high-speed Ethernet, positioning and mobile network infrastructure markets, with expanding focus on service assurance, cybersecurity and 5G.
