Spirent First to Incorporate NetSecOPEN Test Suite into Security and Performance Testing Platform

CyberFlood solution simplifies network testing for industry body’s
open-standards compliance

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/IoT?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#IoTlt;/agt;–Spirent
Communications plc
(LSE:SPT), the trusted provider of test,
measurement, assurance, and analytics solutions for next-generation
devices and networks, today announced that it has fully incorporated the
NetSecOPEN test suite into its CyberFlood
testing platform
. The new built-in capabilities provide CyberFlood
users with the ability to easily perform assessments of their security
systems using the full breadth of NetSecOPEN’s open network security
test standard methodologies.

NetSecOPEN
is a vendor-independent standards body that brings together leading
testing solutions vendors, security vendors, and testing labs to develop
transparent, open, and public standards-based cybersecurity performance
testing. Spirent Communications joined NetSecOPEN as a founding member
in 2017, and has played an important role in developing the
organization’s open testing standard for next-generation firewalls
(NGFW).

Spirent’s CyberFlood is the first assessment solution to integrate all
current NetSecOPEN tests. With this latest version, users can easily
access NetSecOPEN’s standards-based methodologies to assess and validate
how deployment-ready security solutions impact network performance.
These methodologies cover a wide range of use cases, including
enterprise perimeter security mix traffic, cybersecurity assessment with
pre-defined attack and malware scenarios, and a growing set of primary
performance tests for bandwidth and capacity based on fully open and
transparent standards.

“The combination of CyberFlood and NetSecOPEN enables every enterprise
to adopt an open-standards approach to infrastructure security
assessments,” said Jurrie van den Breekel, vice president, business
development and product management at Spirent Communications. “With
CyberFlood’s NetSecOPEN tests, users can immediately see the impact on
performance, while optimizing infrastructure security policies.”

Spirent CyberFlood is a powerful, easy-to-use test solution that enables
enterprises, service providers, and network equipment manufacturers to
gauge the security, performance, scalability, and efficacy of their
application-aware network infrastructures. Unlike test solutions that
merely simulate or mimic attacks, CyberFlood emulates hacker, malware,
and attack behavior using realistic and up-to-date threats – including
malicious payloads seen in the real world – to provide a highly accurate
security evaluation of an organization’s networks and devices.

Brian Monkman, executive director of NetSecOPEN said: “Incorporating the
NetSecOPEN test suite into Spirent’s CyberFlood is a great step forward
for the industry and brings us closer to full, cross-industry adoption
of a truly open standard for apples-to-apples performance testing of
security solutions. Now CyberFlood puts our specification of realistic,
repeatable testing into the hands of enterprise organizations, labs, and
vendors.”

CyberFlood version 19.1.2, featuring the expanded NetSecOPEN test suite
as a standard component, is available now. For more information, please
