Xena Networks Safire NGFW Tester

Feb. 20, 2019
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.

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.”
