BreakingPoint Introduces Bing-Like Security Strike Search Engine for BreakingPoint Elite Users

BreakingPoint Elite's New Security Strike Search Engine Helps Users Quickly Find and Select Security Vulnerabilities to Harden Critical Infrastructures Against Cyberattack

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - December 17, 2009) - BreakingPoint Systems, provider of the de facto standard for cybersimulation, recently saw its massive library of security strikes grow past the 4,300 mark. In order for BreakingPoint Elite users to more quickly search and identify the right security strikes for testing, BreakingPoint today introduced a powerful security strike search engine.

Watch the BreakingPoint Elite security strike search engine in action in the online demo video with BreakingPoint CTO Dennis Cox.

BreakingPoint Introduces Security Strike Search Engine and Dynamic Strike Management

With a massive library that exceeds 4,300 security strikes, BreakingPoint customers needed a more powerful way to find the relevant strikes for specific tests. Today, BreakingPoint introduced the test industry's first security strike search engine, which allows users to quickly find applicable strikes. The new strike manager also allows users to build and save intelligent security strike lists. These lists, based on individual criteria, automatically update with future strikes that meet the same parameters. The security strike search engine will also find any strikes created with BreakingPoint's Custom Strike Toolkit, a powerful tool providing the ability to write custom security strikes to run on BreakingPoint's hardware.

BreakingPoint CTO and Co-founder Dennis Cox Discusses Security-Testing Capabilities

"Surpassing 4,300 security strikes puts BreakingPoint users in a unique position: They have the strikes they need for realistic testing, but sorting through the library to find the right strikes could be cumbersome. Taking a cue from Microsoft's Bing, we built a security strike search engine that allows our users to sort through all the information and find only the security strikes they need to build a realistic testing scenario. Using full-text search parameters, users receive accurate search results, helping to identify the strikes applicable to the test they want to run. Users can then go beyond simple search and build a security strike list based on their search criteria. This list then auto populates when BreakingPoint introduces new strikes that meet the original search parameters. This level of test automation is certainly required when you have a library of strikes such as ours. It also leaves people with no excuse not to test network and data center equipment properly prior to deployment."

BreakingPoint Elite users can experience this powerful new search tool, plus 30 additional features, by downloading the latest update. To receive a demo of BreakingPoint Elite, visit www.breakingpoint.com.
