Keysight Technologies announced new cloud-native distributed network performance and security test software – CyPerf – which helps organizations characterize user experience and validate the performance limits of hybrid networks, security devices and services for confident rollouts.

New technologies such as SD-WAN, multi-cloud architectures and software as a service (SaaS) applications evolve network and security architectures to a distributed, hybrid model. As more users, devices, applications, services and data reside outside of an organization, IT teams need to measure the performance and security of networks and application services. As a result, network and security operations share the objective of guaranteeing a well-performing and secure network.

Built using a light-weight, software agent-based architecture, Keysight's CyPerf software is easy to deploy and operate in lab networks, sandbox environments and hybrid production networks. CyPerf offers:

- CyPerf's web-based GUI helps users visualize and interact with various network elements that are critical to simulating a network in action.

- A holistic approach for realistic pre- and post-deployment testing in distributed environments.

- Insights into the end user experience, security posture and performance bottlenecks while under controllable, realistic load conditions.

- Real-world results by simultaneously generating legitimate traffic mixes and malicious activities that can transverse a complex distributed network consisting of proxies, software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), transport layer security (TLS) inspection, elastic load balancers (ELBs), and web application firewalls (WAF).

- A proactive, continuous data-driven approach that IT network operators can utilize to validate and analyze changes in user experience, performance and security compared with previously established baselines.

- Network and security operations teams the ability to find the balance between the digital user experience and security in their organizations.

- Network security tool vendors the ability to realistically replicate their customers' environments to accelerate the time-to-market of their solutions and services.

"As more users, devices, applications, services and data move to the network edge, a new approach is needed to validate performance and security," said Ram Periakaruppan, VP and GM, at Keysight Network Applications & Security Group. "CyPerf can be deployed by enterprises and network security vendors to fine-tune the balance between digital user experience and security in a dynamic hybrid environment that consists of third-party cloud providers and network connectivity. Performance and security are only as good as the weakest part of a network, and CyPerf identifies those weaknesses with a view into the full application delivery path in hybrid networks."
