Performance Verification of NGFW

To rigorously test the performance of next generation firewalls (NGFWs), it is no longer enough to bombard them with dummy traffic.

Verification essential for success of the enterprise network

Verifying the performance of NGFWs and other network security devices is important. NGFWs offer advanced protection features such as application identification, intrusion prevention, threat detection and so on. Once activated however these features can degrade the overall performance of the network.

Variety of test plans offered by Xena

Xena’s Vulcan platform can be used for a variety of tests that verify NGFW performance. Using the rich application library, VulcanAppMix, users can customize the pre-defined templates for application emulation on the DUT. Capture-and-replay allows scalable performance test using captured network traffic with great flexibility.
