Ixia, a Keysight Business, and ReversingLabs Deliver Expanded Threat Coverage

New BreakingPoint daily ATI updates enable organizations to validate
security posture with the latest, relevant threat vectors

SANTA ROSA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#DDOS–Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company
that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, today announced that Ixia,
a Keysight Business, and ReversingLabs,
a leading provider of threat intelligence solutions, have joined forces
to deliver daily updates to the Application and Threat Intelligence
(ATI) coverage in BreakingPoint.
Organizations can now validate their security posture with 20 times more
relevant active threat vectors to minimize attack exposure and maximize
attack readiness.

The security threat landscape reached new heights in 2017. Over the past
year, new threats emerged in the form of cryptocurrency miners and the
rapid spread of new malware attacks such as WannaCry and Petya according
to Symantec’s
2018 Security Threat Report
. McAfee
Labs
reported that the rates of new malware samples reached 4 per
second in Q3 2017.

“The ability to quickly detect and respond to today’s rapidly evolving
threat landscape has never been more important,” said Mario Vuksan,
Founder and CEO at ReversingLabs. “Our effort with Ixia is a great
example of how ReversingLabs’ authoritative File Intelligence Service
can support unique solutions that help customers continuously assess
their security posture quickly and efficiently.”

The Ixia BreakingPoint test platform simulates real-world legitimate
traffic, distributed denial of service (DDoS), exploits, malware, and
fuzzing to validate an organization’s security infrastructure. Offering
a cloud update service, BreakingPoint enables organizations to search,
select, install, and uninstall threat packages to efficiently manage
disk space and operationalize their security assessment with automation.
In addition, the new threat packages updated every weekday allow users
to test specific and relevant domains including financial, healthcare,
retail, and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) with the
most recent attacks.

“Organizations must be prepared to protect themselves from the daily
onslaught of attacks,” said Sunil Kalidindi, vice president of product
management at Ixia. “We are proud to join with ReversingLabs to deliver
20 times expanded malware coverage than before. By simulating new
attacks security operations teams can understand the impact of a new
risk before it happens.”

The BreakingPoint ATI update service is available to BreakingPoint
customers with an active ATI subscription. The feature is enabled for
all new customers.
