Chunghwa Telecom Laboratories (CHTTL) clearly understands the need to ensure secure and reliable cloud services, and is relying on solutions from Spirent Communications to help validate the security of its cloud computing centers.
Security testing must extend across multiple aspects of the cloud including services and virtual machines, as well as the physical infrastructure. This led CHTTL to use Spirent Avalanche Virtual as well as Spirent Avalanche. Testing with Spirent enables CHTTL to simulate attacks in a cloud computing environment for virtual firewall testing, and to measure the performance of virtualized network infrastructures and applications deployed in the cloud.
"Many enterprises and service providers are planning to deploy cloud networks and services, and security is definitely their top concern," said Gene Zhang, Vice-President, Asia at Spirent Communications. "By leveraging Spirent's cloud computing test solution for both infrastructure and applications, especially our security test application tailored for virtualized networks, Chunghwa Telecom is able to ensure it offers high-performance, reliable and secure cloud services."
Spirent Avalanche Virtual offers both client and server emulation, required to accurately replicate real user traffic in cloud environments and to validate the robustness of the cloud with encrypted traffic and threats. Spirent Avalanche Virtual also provides the empirical data necessary to measure the performance of applications deployed in the cloud, enabling enterprises and cloud service providers to understand the impact of large-scale cloud-based application deployments against their expected quality of experience benchmarks.
