VIAVI brings advanced performance testing to Secure Access Service Edge Networks

Viavi Solutions is bringing advanced performance testing to Secure Access Service Edge Networks. TeraVM SASE Test is a virtualized platform that tests the limits of any SASE solution by emulating large-scale traffic and measuring the performance across multiple vectors. VIAVI will present TeraVM SASE Test at RSA Conference 2023, April 24-27, 2023 in San Francisco.

As enterprises grapple with increases in hybrid working and usage of public cloud services, SASE networks intend to provide a consistent and secure experience for their users. The Secure Access Service Edge Networks architecture combines networking and security capabilities as a service to deliver secure access to applications and data wherever their users, applications or devices are located. According to Gartner, 40 percent of enterprises will have explicit strategies to adopt SASE by 2024.

TeraVM SASE Test allows networking and security companies to meet Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for their customers by pushing their SASE solution to the limits so that they can find and fix any performance, security or access issues. TeraVM SASE Test achieves this through realistic user end point emulation at scale to measure traffic volumes, connection limits, redundancy options, latency allowances, cloud access and most importantly, performance. SASE Test can be deployed in any cloud environment and tests any security and access technology or protocol including SD-WAN, Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Secure Web Gateway, Data Loss Prevention (DLP), and Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) with additional support for secure VPN services. This solution is based on VIAVI’s history of test leadership with communication service providers, equipment manufacturers and enterprises worldwide.
