BreakingPoint CEO Des Wilson Comments on Company Growth and Mission
"Global cyber war became a recognized and persistent threat in 2010 as organized nation-states, cyber terrorists, and rogue hacktivists assaulted global enterprises, service providers, and governments. The damage ran the gamut from billions of dollars in lost business to leakage of sensitive data. As the damage mounted, organizations shifted their IT mission from simply deflecting cyber attacks, to arming themselves to win cyber war. Organizations began to follow the lead of the defense industrial base and deploy cyber ranges in order to evolve from a reactive IT entity into a proactive force."

Mr. Wilson continued, "Cyber ranges, the equivalent of physical firing ranges used by soldiers to hone their skills, simulate both benign application traffic and real-world cyber attacks in a controlled environment. By introducing the BreakingPoint Storm CTM, we have provided the world's most compact and cost-efficient cyber range. Fortune 500 organizations and the world's largest governments can now replicate an assault against their own network and data center infrastructures with hundreds of applications, thousands of attacks, and millions of users. The resulting intelligence provides a road map to harden infrastructure elements against attack, a standardized product Resiliency Score to hold equipment vendors accountable, and the skill set necessary for IT professionals to confront and eradicate threats that endanger every modern organization."
