BreakingPoint Will Be Presenting Their Patented Technology That Recreates Internet-Scale Cyber War at SINET, Which Brings Together the Most Innovative Solutions and Leaders in Cybersecurity

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) -  The BreakingPoint Cyber Tomography Machine (CTM)™, powered by a patented innovation in network processors, was selected for the prestigious Security Innovation Network™ (SINET) Showcase. BreakingPoint will be one of twenty companies selected by the SINET steering committee as one of the nation's most promising new technologies. BreakingPoint Storm CTM™ is designed to harden critical network and data center infrastructures to be resilient against attack.

BreakingPoint's patented product innovation unleashes Internet-scale cyber war in a controlled environment to measure the resiliency -- performance, security and stability -- of network and data center infrastructures. Driven by network processors, a single BreakingPoint Storm CTM™ replaces a complex, multi-million-dollar cyber range with an easy-to-use, comprehensive, and low maintenance solution that includes a scientific Resiliency Score™ methodology. Because of these advancements in cybersecurity technology, BreakingPoint was one of only 20 companies selected, from more than 130, for the SINET Showcase.

Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and Founder of SINET
"The quality of the responding companies to our Call for Presentations was exceptional, which made the selection of only twenty very challenging for the selection committee. We are confident that by raising awareness of BreakingPoint and the other 19 companies, they will have a significant impact on our high-level audience at SINET Showcase. Our goal is to help match these 'best of class' companies with the security needs of the Federal civilian, defense and intelligence agencies and the commercial sector."
