Keysight Unveils New Modular Network Cybersecurity Testing Platform


Keysight Technologies announced the launch of the APS-100 / 400GE Series Network Application and Modular Security Test Platform.

This new platform delivers large-scale encryption throughput that enables network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and data center operators to validate the equipment to support the massive data volume and requirements of cybersecurity of their customers.

Today’s hyperscale data center operators are bracing for unprecedented traffic volumes and ever-expanding attack surfaces. NEMs need to validate their next-generation firewalls for this emerging market, and data center operators need to balance security and operating user experience.

Keysight’s APS platform includes the APS-M1010 controller and APS-ONE-100 appliance modules that can be stacked to provide hyperscale data center device manufacturers and operators with a cost-effective “pay-as-you-go” approach. as you grow up ”for their cybersecurity testing needs. . The approach preserves current and future investments as data center interfaces and speeds scale from 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) to 400GE.

Supporting Keysight’s application security and performance testing solutions, the APS Series Test Platform is a hyper-scalable Layer 4-7 testing solution that helps identify performance and interoperability in devices and systems such as Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW). It combines powerful multi-core and multi-threaded processors, cryptography acceleration and cloud native software to generate realistic, large-scale user and malware traffic under realistic conditions.
