Ixia's IxLoad-Attack Receives Security Industry's Global Excellence Award

CALABASAS, CA, Mar 06, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Ixia (NASDAQ: XXIA), the leading global provider of converged IP and wireless network test solutions, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named IxLoad-Attack(TM) -- its network security validation solution -- as a winner of the 2012 Global Excellence Awards in the Vulnerability Assessment, Remediation, and Management category. IxLoad-Attack was evaluated by a panel of over 50 industry experts, validating the importance of network operators' need to find infrastructure vulnerabilities and weaknesses before they can be exploited on live networks -- protecting customer data, financial holdings, and brand reputation.

IxLoad-Attack measures the performance of network security appliances and validates that they effectively and accurately block attacks, while delivering high end-user quality of experience for mission-critical applications. Customized, real-world network traffic provides the "good" reference traffic that security devices must forward without affecting customer quality of experience (QoE).

IxLoad-Attack is the only product that provides malicious traffic over both encrypted and non-encrypted links. It assesses security perimeter devices such as firewall intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS), anti-virus filters, VPN gateways, and wireless security via generic tunneling protocol (GTP).

"IxLoad-Attack introduces a critical capability that network operators once lacked, and Info Security Products Guide's recognition reaffirms its importance to the industry," said Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO of Ixia. "As the only product that provides malicious traffic over both encrypted and non-encrypted links, IxLoad-Attack is ahead of the curve when it comes to the best-of-the-best products that provide the highest security in vulnerability assessment."
