Third generation network security testing platform.

Codenomicon : 02 April, 2008  (New Product)
Defensics 3.0 enables integrators and manufacturers to comprehensively verify the security of network and wireless products.
Codenomicon has announced Defensics 3.0, the third generation of its innovative security and quality testing platform that allows networked product and service manufacturers and vendors to quickly identify and fix flaws by catching the problems before their offerings ever reach the market.

"It is clear that traditional testing processes continue to fail vendors and their customers. News reports of security breaches and attacks that cripple businesses and their reputations keep emerging and, frankly, many end users have just had it," said Ari Takanen, Codenomicon co-founder and chief technology officer. "Our latest Defensics test platform offers an even faster, more effective way to expose and fix security-critical product and service flaws before they harm customers' businesses or compromise consumer information. By using our tools, vendors can deliver better quality, reduce their time to market and minimize or eliminate the need to patch or recall their products, a key advantage as customers reward vendors that deliver superior products."

Unlike the appliance-based testing products, Defensics is unique, because it can be installed on any industry standard workstation computer, enabling customers to build whatever test environment they want. The tools can be run on carrier-grade, 64-bit multi-processor hardware with multiple 10G network interfaces, resulting in unparalleled processing power, or they can be run on a tablet PC, enabling mobility of the test system. This key advantage allows engineers and security specialists to test anywhere instead of being restricted to a test lab environment.

The Defensics platform can test anything that can be linked to the security test computers through any type of wireless or wired connection. This makes Defensics 3.0 the most versatile platform available, since it can work with more than 140 wireless and wireline network protocols and connections, which is more than double the capacity of any other test product in the same market.

The Defensics platform and tools are based on highly detailed models for each protocol that customers can easily customize for their specific needs. The platform's test tools come with pre-built test cases, which can be modified and extended. These features, combined with Codenomicon's flexible software-based platform, make the tests easy to integrate and maintain in any test environment.

Defensics includes built-in intelligence to ensure each test on the most aggressive model-based fuzzing tests, requiring minimal design effort from the customer. The platform's integrated test automation and advanced target monitoring functions enable Defensics to monitor the health of any targeted system, from network equipment to mobile phones, to identify any weak points, failures and flaws with pinpoint accuracy.

Compared to less evolved tools, Defensics applies a systematic testing methodology that tracks any found flaw back to the specific malicious input or attack that exposes the weakness. As flaws and weaknesses are revealed, Defensics captures the test results in explicit detail, which allows the engineer to quickly diagnose and correct code failures. In addition, all Defensics-based tests can be fully repeated, which makes the platform ideal for regression testing and problem reproduction by trusted third parties.

Products and services that can be tested using the Defensics suite include most enterprise and consumer software, network appliances, consumer electronics devices, telecommunications systems, and wireless handsets and services.
