Realistic Traffic Profile Generation for Enterprise Firewalls

Xena Safire has created an automated solution to reconstruct traffic profiles that realistically represent the traffic characteristics in the enterprise production network for a successful firewall deployment and services.

Today’s enterprises rely on cloud-based applications and services for all sorts of business activities, such as enterprise resource management, documentation, product development, and so forth. The shift from hosting everything on-premise to SaaS has changed the profile of the network traffic in the enterprise production network. Emerging applications can quickly become phenomenally popular and rapidly adopted by hundreds of enterprises. This makes it extremely challenging for enterprises to use the correct traffic to verify the performance of their firewalls.

Many enterprises deliberately ignore the importance of using realistic application traffic profiles to performance test their firewalls. Instead, many stick to standardized application mixes, which are made for benchmarking uses, when evaluating how their firewalls perform in their own production network. This can result in a false sense of security regarding both performance and data security.

Xena Safire has created an automated solution to reconstruct traffic profiles that realistically represent the traffic characteristics in the enterprise production network for a successful firewall deployment and services. The outcome is a repeatable, meaningful, and effective firewall performance test result, that can benefit System integrators (SIs), Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), as well as enterprise IT teams.
