Balancing Security + Performance in Hyperscale Networking

Digital transformation is impacting organizations of all sizes and comes at a time of increased user experience expectations whether at home or in the office. As network and data center operators embrace the hyperscale paradigm and encryption becomes the norm, NEMs must support unprecedented traffic volumes and ever-expanding attached surfaces. The key to differentiation is striking the right balance between security and user experience.

APS Series application and security test platform

Modular and Flexible Hyperscale Test Platform

The APS Series is Keysight’s next-generation application and security test platform. It employs a modular approach that allows users to stack APS-ONE-100 appliances to linearly scale with up to 10 nodes managed by a single APS-M1010 controller. This allows users to recreate hyperscale test environments in a modular, grow-as-you-need approach.

The system is driven by Keysight’s industry-leading test solution for application delivery and security resiliency testing.


A single APS-ONE-100 delivers unparalleled real-world TLS performance of up to 100K TLS connections per second and 3.2M TLS concurrent connections and 150Gbps encrypted throughput. The ground-breaking scale of a 10-appliance system generates 1M TLS CPS, 32M TLS concurrent connections, 960 Gbps encrypted IPsec throughput, and 1.5 Tbps encrypted TLS throughput.

Keysight APS-M1010 Controller

Centralized Management

The APS-M1010 controller delivers centralized management and software updates for up to 10 compute nodes. Ten 10GE Ethernet ports on the back of the controller enable fast uplink connectivity and direct access to each APS-ONE-100 appliance, removing the need for intermediary Layer 2 switches and providing a single management IP address for the entire cluster.

Making Dollar$ and Sense Out of Enterprise Security Testing

Making Dollar$ and Sense Out of Enterprise Security Testing

If your job involves addressing and responding to the security challenges your organization faces, this paper can help you. We’ll explore traditional approaches to assessing security investments, look at the financial benefits of testing, and debunk the excuses that keep IT organizations from validating their security infrastructure and deployment processes. And last but not least, we’ll introduce new solutions and best practices for staying a step ahead of the evolving threat landscape. Ignoring security resilience testing is a “head-in-the-sand” approach that can cost organizations millions, and individuals their jobs. We’ll look at solutions and technologies that can cost-effectively model and apply the realism found in your company’s one-of-a-kind network, right down to your applications and even a single user’s behavior, including both legitimate enterprise users and malicious attackers. Using this approach and economical new techniques, IT managers can quickly evaluate how specific technologies such as NGFWs, or a layered security architecture, will perform and safeguard application performance in their own unique environments. This paper covers: Opportunities for cost-reduction; Selecting optimized and cost-effective security for your network; Right-sizing investments to meet your company’s business AND security needs; Ensuring your network has the high level of security resilience needed to defend against attacks; Readying company personnel for inevitable attacks.
