BreakingPoint Systems Awarded for Network Equipment Testing Product of the Year by Frost & Sullivan

BreakingPoint's Network Equipment Performance and Security Testing Product Recognized for Its Ability to Enhance Efficiency, Reduce Time-to-Test, and Accelerate Product Development

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - September 10, 2008) - Based on its recent analysis of the Communications Test & Measurement market, Frost & Sullivan has recognized BreakingPoint Systems, Inc. with the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Award for Network Equipment Testing Product of the Year.

For the second year in a row Frost & Sullivan has awarded BreakingPoint for its series of technological breakthroughs and its innovative approach to network testing. BreakingPoint provides an all-in-one Layer 2-7 testing system that can drive realistic application traffic and live security strikes at 10 Gigabits per second, both essential components for testing high performance deep packet inspection (DPI) capable devices. BreakingPoint testing solutions are designed to test DPI capable, content-aware network devices by generating 7.5 million simultaneous TCP sessions and 750,000 TCP/IP sessions per second. In addition, BreakingPoint includes a security test suite that is unequalled in the test industry.

Olga Yashkova, industry analyst, Frost & Sullivan commented:

"One of the most difficult challenges for test and measurement vendors in the DPI test market is to provide an integrated solution. BreakingPoint Systems successfully overcame this challenge with the launch of its integrated test solution, which offers a high price/performance ratio to end-users, who can now use a single integrated tester with single reporting, rather than a number of testers, to conduct required DPI security testing. This translates into significant savings for the customer and an accelerated product development schedule."

Each year Frost & Sullivan presents awards to companies that have demonstrated technological superiority within their industry. The Network Equipment Testing Product of the Year Award recognizes the ability of a company to successfully develop or introduce the industry's premier solution for testing DPI-capable network devices.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
