Security functions have long been identified as prime candidates for virtualization, but are there any security virtual network functions (VNFs) that meet the commercial deployment needs of communications service providers and large enterprises? And what are the architectural implications for security in a virtualized environment?

With those key questions in mind, Light Reading commissioned independent test lab EANTC to evaluate a range of security tools and functions, including virtual elements, on offer from Cisco. The evaluations were numerous and varied and simulated real-world scenarios, including threat detection, attack visibility and mitigation and security platform performance. EANTC also introduced a test case dedicated to the verification of the provisioning process for security-as-a-service VNFs, an important development for CSPs wanting to develop new business opportunities around next-generation security functionality.

This webinar details the tests carried out by the EANTC team and delves into the results and key takeaways identified by the team that performed the evaluation.
