Equiinet participates in live product testing programme run by West Coast Labs

Equiinet : 20 March, 2009  (Company News)
Equiinet is participating in the market's first up-to-the-moment live product testing programme being conducted by West Coast Labs, a leading independent test facility for information security products and services.
Equiinet, which serves the education and SME markets, already holds numerous Checkmark accreditations for its security functions embedded within its market leading CachePilot, SecurePilot and NetPilot products. By participating in this new real-time testing, which heralds the introduction of a more rigorous testing and validation at a higher level relative to product performance and capability, Equiinet will continue with confidence to provide its customers and prospects with robust products best suited to address their unique needs.

Equiinet Managing Director, Keith Baker commented "Equiinet has been a keen industry participant of the West Coast Labs Checkmark accreditation scheme for over 10 years. Our Education and SME customers similarly value the independent testing and reassurance that Checkmark offers. As an early participant in West Coast's Real Time testing program, we have already received very useful practical feed-back. West Coast's new offering is huge step forward in testing methodologies - clearly differentiating itself from simple single point-in-time testing - that will provide Equiinet and our customers with up-to-the-minute quality assurance."

Designed to meet new performance and validation standards required by vendors and end users, the Real Time Testing program by West Coast Labs is the only live independent testing conducted in a test environment that mirrors the actual security threats businesses worldwide experience real time. An enhancement to its independent testing service, the Real Time Testing program expands beyond West Coast Labs' standard, baseline benchmarking to live tests of products and services against security threats collected in real time through West Coast Labs' global network. This level of sophisticated testing responds directly to the demand for up-to-the-minute performance validation of mission critical security applications and services.

"Up until now, there's been an extremely large gap between the evaluation of products and end users' experiences," said Lysa Myers, director of research, West Coast Labs. "Where once testing was conducted without regard to time and geographic location, our Real Time Testing program recognizes the importance of testing against up-to-the minute threats that originate from multiple locations and are aimed at varying entry points. It is the first major step in years that closes that gap between test labs and user experiences."
