BreakingPoint First to Deliver Dual Stack IPv4/IPv6 Testing Capabilities and Support for Current IPv6 Standards

From Earth Times

AUSTIN, TX -- 07/21/09 -- The current blend of IPv4 and IPv6 network traffic can have serious repercussions on network device and application server performance and security. Yanick Pouffary, technology director for the North American IPv6 Task Force and an HP Distinguished Technologist, recently told CIO Magazine that, "At least half of U.S. CIOs have IPv6 on their networks that they don't know about, but the hackers do. You can't ignore IPv6. You need to take the minimum steps to secure your perimeter. You need firewalls that understand IPv4 and IPv6. You need network management tools that understand IPv4 and IPv6."(1)

Only through testing IPv6-aware firewalls, intrusion detection systems and other network devices using both IPv4 and the most current IPv6 traffic, can you certify device resiliency and meet mandates for IPv6 compliance.

News Overview

-- BreakingPoint today became the only testing tools provider with dual stack IPv4/IPv6 testing using the most current IPv6 standards and support for both application and security traffic as of July 2009.

-- BreakingPoint is now the exclusive provider of resiliency testing using current IPv6 traffic to simulate true global network traffic. BreakingPoint has the unique ability to generate blended stateful application traffic mixed with live security attacks at line-rate speeds and high session counts, delivered from the same address space.

-- BreakingPoint dual stack testing is the industry's most comprehensive and up to date IPv6 capable testing allowing Network Equipment Manufacturers (NEMs), service providers and application server suppliers to:

-- Simulate IPv6 traffic through each BreakingPoint testing component
including Client Simulator for load testing IPv6 capable application
-- Enhance Layer 4-7 performance with more than 75 blended IPv6 native
application protocols.
-- Authenticate security with more than 4,200 IPv6 capable security
-- Ensure compliance with the latest IPv6 standards as of July 2009.
-- Validate real-world performance by blending IPv4 and IPv6 traffic.
-- Reduce time-to-test through importing of IPv6 traffic captures.
