Judge’s comment: “Innovative product with a lot of promise. Appears to have a very targeted customer base in IT departments within mid to large enterprises, where it would likely see its greatest use and value.”
Xena Networks Safire NGFW Tester
The Safire NGFW Tester from Xena Networks is world's first "no-fuss" next-generation firewall (NGFW) tester, the company asserts. Unlike complex and expensive lab-based Layer 4-7 test equipment, Safire is designed for enterprise IT managers looking to quickly and cost-effectively measure and document the performance of NGFWs using realistic traffic mixes. A browser-based application makes it easy to quickly measure the performance of NGFWs under realistic traffic conditions and generate a PDF containing all the results and key conclusions.
