BreakingPoint to Demonstrate Industry's First Pragmatic and Proven Approach to Actionable Security Intelligence (ASI) at RSA Conference

BreakingPoint Announces Ambitious Plan for Live Demonstrations of Full Suite of ASI Solutions, Including Creation of 600 Gbps of Application Traffic, Internet-Scale Cyber War, and a Simulation of Every Mobile Phone User in San Francisco

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 23, 2012) - As a Global Gold Sponsor, BreakingPoint will be showcased front and center at RSA Conference next week, deploying its full range of Actionable Security Intelligence (ASI) solutions. In Booth No. 1917, BreakingPoint will perform live security demonstrations showing how to transform:

  • Technologies: Conduct massive-scale real-world firewall testing using 600 gigabits per second of real-world application traffic from Facebook and Netflix to Outlook and Google Chat -- the only way to test next-generation firewalls.
  • People: Simulate Internet-scale cyber war in a compact cyber range for training cyber warriors and performing cutting-edge security research.
  • Infrastructure: Simulate the behavior of every mobile phone user in San Francisco texting, emailing, streaming, and spreading mobile malware for true city-scale mobility performance and security testing.
  • Processes: Hear from some of the hundreds of customers who depend on BreakingPoint ASI to capture global threat intelligence and control it, and learn how it provides those customers the advance insight to institute proactive and potent security processes.

BreakingPoint also released today the list of participating security vendors in Booth No. 1917, including Arbor Networks, Fidelis Security Systems, Fortinet, McAfee, Palo Alto Networks, Sourcefire, and Stonesoft.

Defending Against Attacks Is Not Enough…The Truth Hurts
"Critical infrastructures, from everyday business networks to utility grids, are losing ground to cyber attackers and being exposed as the brittle structures they are," said Pam O'Neal, Vice President of Marketing, BreakingPoint. "The truth hurts, and it is time for organizations to recognize that simply defending against attacks is only one small part of the equation. The larger need is a full transformation of technologies, people, and processes from reactive and weak to predictive and resilient. During RSA, BreakingPoint will demonstrate, live and for the first time, the full power of our pragmatic and proven Actionable Security Intelligence solutions. Join us in Booth No. 1917, and understand how ASI can be used today by every organization to harden technologies, fine-tune systems and policies, and transform IT staff into cyber warriors ready for this battle."

Live Presentations: Arbor Networks, Fidelis Security Systems, Fortinet, McAfee, Sourcefire, Stonesoft, and more
