Title: White paper: Measuring Key Criteria of Intrusion Prevention Systems

Publication date:   20 June 2005
Document number:    205114

Abstract:

Radware, Inc. commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate its DefensePro 3000, an intrusion prevention switch with DoS protection that combines bandwidth management for attack isolation and traffic shaping to offer enterprise and carrier networks protection against a diverse range of network- and application-level attacks.

The aim of the testing was to evaluate the DefensePro 3000 to determine that it delivers the advanced IPS requirements users need to combat today’s sophisticated security threats.

Tolly Group engineers examined the performance of the DefensePro 3000 in various scenarios to understand the maximum throughput offered by the switch while it actively handled various attacks and processed signature loads. Engineers also evaluated the manner in which the DefensePro 3000 was able to detect and block attacks that utilized common evasion techniques and engineers examined a facility that restricts bandwidth to background applications that otherwise could interfere with strategic application traffic. Finally, The Tolly Group examined a capability of the DefensePro 3000 to implement protection options for different segments of supported networks. Tests were conducted in April 2005 at Radware facilities in Israel.
