Sarrel Group Standardizes Layer 4-7 Testing With BreakingPoint Systems

Sarrel Group’s Testing Lab to Use BreakingPoint Testing Solutions to Measure Performance and Ensure Security of Network Devices Using Stateful Application Traffic, Live Security Strikes and 10Gps Speeds

AUSTIN, TX–(EMWPresswire – August 13, 2008) – BreakingPoint Systems, the content-aware network

and application testing company, today announced that Sarrel Group, an

independent test lab for network devices and other IT solutions, will

standardize its Layer 4-7 testing using BreakingPoint’s solutions. Sarrel

Group’s state-of-the-art testing lab is tasked daily by technology vendors

to validate the performance and security of network devices such as

Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), Firewalls, Unified Threat Management

(UTM) devices, WAN Acceleration devices and more.

Quotes

Matt Sarrel, Founder and Executive Director, Sarrel Group

“During my decades in the technology industry I have used dozens of

different network and security testing solutions, often at the same time in

order to accomplish my task. BreakingPoint offers next-generation test

tools that will provide us with a competitive advantage over labs using

legacy test equipment and enable us to efficiently test the industry’s

latest network equipment. BreakingPoint’s abilities to test with real

application traffic, live security strikes and at line speed are obvious

competitive advantages. However, their commitment to removing the

complexity from testing through an easy-to-use management interface,

out-of-the box access to applications and constant protocol and security

strike updates is what truly differentiates them in this market.”

Dennis Cox, CTO, BreakingPoint Systems

“Test labs, whether independent or within a company, are obviously a

critical element in the lifecycle of a network device. But for those of us

who have been in the lab, we know that we are only as good as the testing

tools available. We created BreakingPoint to introduce new testing

technology, but also a new mindset into how intuitive testing should be.

When we first spoke with the Sarrel Group they shared many of the same

frustrations we had run into as network engineers. Using BreakingPoint’s

testing solutions we can not only help them test more accurately but

eliminate many of the barriers to test that once existed.”

    security of a network or network device must combine authentic converged

    business application traffic with live security threats.

    (DPI) of network equipment at 10 Gigabits per second, which is essential

    for content-aware devices such as Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), Load
