SAN FRANCISCO -- RSA Conference 2011, Booth 2627 -- Ixia (NASDAQ: XXIA), a leading, global provider of converged IP network test solutions, today unveiled IxLoad-Attack, its network vulnerability test tool. The first public demonstration will be at the RSA Conference 2011 in San Francisco, February 14-17. With the industry's most comprehensive database of more than 6,000 unique attacks, IxLoad-Attack recreates malicious traffic that exploits published vulnerabilities and generates Internet-scale distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks in a controlled environment.

IxLoad-Attack measures the performance of network security appliances validating that they effectively and accurately block attacks while delivering high end-user quality of experience for mission-critical applications. Security perimeter devices such as firewall, intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS), anti-virus, anti-spam and URL filters, and VPN gateways need constant update and configuration to provide up-to-date protection. IxLoad-Attack includes an update service that keeps pace with current threats. IxLoad-Attack delivers the security testing depth and scale needed to satisfy both device validation and continuous protection of cloud infrastructures as well as enterprise, government, and service provider networks. IxLoad-Attack is the only product that provides malicious traffic over both encrypted (IPsec and SSL) and non-encrypted links.
