VIAVI Brings Advanced Performance Testing to SASE Solutions

Viavi Solutions Inc., a network test and measurement company that works with large and complex service provider networks globally, announced it is bringing advanced performance testing to secure access service edge (SASE) 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 the April 24-27, RSA Conference in San Francisco.

As enterprises grapple with increases in hybrid working and usage of public cloud services, SASE networks provide a consistent and secure experience for their users. The SASE 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.

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.

The 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.

The solution is based on VIAVI’s history of test leadership with communication service providers, equipment manufacturers and enterprises.

“Our SASE solution vendor and service provider customers are extremely conscious of ensuring the highest levels of security and flexible access methods without compromising their users’ work day experience,” said Ian Langley, VP and general manger of the Wireless Business Unit, VIAVI. “TeraVM SASE Test will give them confidence in their capabilities through rigorous testing using emulated workers, real office applications and loaded networks.”
