Tolly Group Tests Prove Reflex MG10 Network Security System Delivers Sustained, 10Gbps Secure Throughput and High Availability in Midst of "Severe Attack Strain"

Reflex MG10 Certified "Up to Spec"; Exceeds 10Gbps Threshold and Blocks 100 Percent of Tested Attacks, Even During Simulated Device Failure Conditions

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - August 28, 2007) - Reflex Security®, Inc., a leader in network security systems for data centers and the networking core, today announced that The Tolly Group, an independent testing and strategic consulting organization, has evaluated and certified the Reflex MG10™ delivers sustained 10 Gbps secure throughput, even under severe attack and device failure conditions. The Tolly Group tests demonstrated the multi-vector security, performance and high-availability capabilities that make the Reflex MG a superior solution for multi-Gigabit networks, data centers, service providers and other advanced security and policy enforcement requirements.

In Tolly Group tests, the Reflex MG10, a chassis-based, high-availability system, maintained an average throughput of 10.25 Gbps, while its deep packet inspection detected and prevented the complete library of attacks generated by the Mu Security Mu-4000 Security Analyzer. The Reflex MG10 also delivered uninterrupted performance and zero transaction loss during simulated failures of Reflex MG security blades.

The Tolly Group concluded, "Tests of the Reflex MG10 show that the device delivers the speed, the scalability and the high availability required to stop enterprise network security threats... without adversely affecting the performance of application traffic."

"Multigigabit networks require security devices that can stand up under the strain of processing a wide array of threats," said Kevin Tolly, President/CEO/Founder, of The Tolly Group. "Test results show that the Reflex MG10 device can maintain performance even when it is being hammered by a constant flow of 611 unique security threats," said Tolly.

"The Reflex MG was built with core network and data center security in mind," said Hezi Moore, CTO of Reflex Security. "The Tolly Group's test results and authoritative UP TO SPEC certification provide our enterprise customers with the assurance that our solutions will perform in their most demanding networking environments."
