Real-Time Challenges for Real-World Testing
These days, organizations rely on a wide variety of security solutions to protect their networks from cyber attacks and traffic anomalies. But the more tools deployed, the more complex a security infrastructure becomes. The result: a hodgepodge of security solutions that are tough to verify and challenging to scale. Worse yet, these complex system interactions pose a serious risk to security performance and network resiliency.
Today’s businesses require an application and security test solution that can verify the stability, accuracy, and quality of networks and network devices.
Validate the security posture of your networks with real applications and a complete range of threat vectors
Introduction to BreakingPoint Application and Security Testing
By simulating real-world legitimate traffic, distributed denial of service (DDoS), exploits, malware, and fuzzing, BreakingPoint validates an organization’s security infrastructure, reduces the risk of network degradation by almost 80%, and increases attack readiness by nearly 70%. And with our new TrafficREWIND solution, you'll get even more realistic and high-fidelity validation by adding production network insight into BreakingPoint test traffic configurations.
How might a particular configuration or security setup withstand a cyber attack? BreakingPoint addresses that by simulating both good and bad traffic to validate and optimize networks under the most realistic conditions. Security infrastructures can also be verified at high-scale, ensuring ease of use, greater agility, and speedy network testing.
We've now simplified security and performance testing even further with the release of BreakingPoint QuickTest turn-key test suites designed to accelerate testing and reduce test tool learning curve.

BreakingPoint Solves Your Real-World Test Challenges
No organization escapes the reach of hackers — if you’re connected to the Internet, they have a way to enter.
The response is the deployment of next-generation firewalls (NGFW), intrusion detection systems (IDS), and whatever future device promises better protection. To ensure minimal impact on network performance and verify the accuracy of complex network security infrastructures, businesses need a robust test solution.
BreakingPoint validates an organization’s security infrastructure, reduces the risk of network degradation by almost 80%, and increases attack readiness by nearly 70%. It’s Real World Traffic testing simulates legitimate traffic, distributed denial of service (DDoS), exploits, malware, and fuzzing.
Today, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are a big risk to any business with an online presence. Organizations need to know if their networks can fend-off the flood of traffic coming from hundreds of thousands of compromised systems while still accepting normal business traffic. Since every update in the network may impact the efficacy of your DDoS mitigation solution, validation must be a continual process.
BreakingPoint simulates both normal application traffic and security threats at scale so you can validate critical data points like number of packets dropped by your DDoS mitigation solution, how your solution functions in a real attack, what level of service you can provide while under attack, and how your people and process react to and withstand an attack.
Data center operators are using a collection of virtual machines or containers to segment the network by meaningful workloads. With workloads classified by the specific functions they serve (like web, application, database, services workloads), organizations can specify security measures relevant to each workload type. But testing the security and performance of these specialized workloads is challenging.
With BreakingPoint VE, you can simulate the characteristics of various workloads and lateral movement of threat vectors, delivering a seamless test function to assess and manage your microsegmentation deployment.
Machine learning and big data analytics are the new hope for security teams to defeat cybercriminals. It is critical that these systems have access to meaningful domain-specific data, events, and logs to establish the baseline behavior of a domain, and eventually help in understanding the tool’s ability to detect anomalies that diverge from the baseline behavior.
With real-world traffic generation, BreakingPoint will help increase the effectiveness of your solution and reduce errors and false positives. It also helps tool vendors create realistic and relevant proof-of-concept (PoC) demonstrations and differentiation for their solutions.
With SCADA operating over IP networks, the line between IT and OT has blurred...however, many OT teams are not prepared to handle threats in ICS networks.
Organizations are taking notice of the threats to SCADA networks and the possible impacts of breaches. It is also clear that, despite being much farther from the standard network security demarcation zones, SCADA networks continue to be exceptionally vulnerable to cyber attacks.
Validation in the lab with BreakingPoint’s real-world application traffic and security attacks can ensure SCADA networks are resilient and secure. Increasing the attack readiness of both your ICS networks and people will go a long way in increasing the resiliency of the SCADA/ICS systems of today and in the future.
