CUSTOM TESTING FOR ENTERPRISES

CUSTOM TESTING FOR ENTERPRISES

Want to conduct a proof-of-concept or comparative product test not covered by existing NSS Labs research? Take advantage of our custom testing services.

BENEFITS

At NSS Labs, we’ve assembled a unique team of world-class security analysts who know how to push security products to their limits. This team of specialists has years of practical experience and knowledge that cannot be learned in a class or from a book. And our findings are always confidential. We work for you.

 
Reduce Costs

Not every organization has the time, expertise, or resources to perform their own testing. Testing of security products is time-consuming and expensive. A single “push-and-play” test tool requiring little effort to run simply doesn’t exist. You need multiple systems and experienced personnel, and these resources can take a great deal of time and money to obtain. That’s where we come in.

We leverage the experienced personnel and high-end equipment already in place at our research facility in Austin, Texas, to help clients drive better outcomes with their testing projects.

Reduce Stress 

We can do the testing for you. We provide confidential testing services, standard or custom test plans, and the expertise on how to set up and run a test. Our custom testing can include security effectiveness, performance, manageability, as well as financial and risk analysis for the products you are considering.

OUR CUSTOM TESTING PROGRAMS CAN INCLUDE A LOOK AT ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:

  • Security effectiveness against malware, phishing, exploits, and so on
  • Throughput and performance measurement: what can the product realistically achieve?
  • Usability and management assessment of critical features
  • Stability and reliability

We base custom testing services costs on the number of use cases and time involved configuring the environment and products, executing the appropriate tests, and analyzing the results. Our testing will leverage existing NSS Labs’ methodologies and include relevant content from our attack libraries, as well as vulnerable target machines that match client asset deployments.

Our lab uses best-of-breed testing tools: proprietary, commercial, and open source.

SAMPLE USE CASES

Proof-of-Concept Testing

After short-listing several products, you want to see if they’ll perform as needed under your live network conditions. But it’s risky to put the products into production without further testing. Real-world, proof-of-concept testing uses conditions emulating your own live network to safely evaluate the candidate products.

Continuous Testing/Continuous Security Validation

Vendors continually release product updates, which can dramatically affect the security of the product. Remove the risk by testing updates before deploying them. 

Product Stability and Reliability

Long-term stability is particularly important for an inline device, where failure can produce network outages. Stability and reliability tests verify the stability of the device along with its ability to maintain security effectiveness while under normal load and while passing malicious traffic.
