PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Based on its recent analysis of the Communications Test & Measurement market, Frost & Sullivan has recognized BreakingPoint Systems, Inc. with the 2007 Frost & Sullivan Award for Emerging Technology of the Year.
The award accredits the companys innovative approach to network testing that allows users to concurrently test at multi-gigabit speeds, layers 2 through 7, using a single device.
BreakingPoint Systems BPS-1000 device is designed to test content aware networks. The BPS-1000 is capable of creating five million TCP application sessions at a ramp rate of five hundred thousand connections per second. In addition, the BPS-1000 includes a security test suite that is unequalled in the test industry.
In todays market place, where the complexity of networks is increasing constantly, security plays a significant role in traffic generation and network performance, notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Gabriel Khon. The BPS-1000 comes with over three thousand contemporary security attacks by default and also allows users to create unique versions of the attacks by permitting them to select protocols and evasion techniques along with the exploits themselves.
