When a Financial Investment firm wanted to strengthen its security posture by maximising the value of its existing security layers, it turned to our partners at Ixia to help achieve this objective.

As Ixia’s key partner in the UK, we help customers to harden the performance of their security layers and help them choose new solutions by running bake-offs to find the best option for their unique requirements. We can do this as a professional service or provide customers with the tools to carry out such evaluations themselves depending on the frequency with which they need to perform bake-offs.

In addition to this, with Ixia ThreatARMOR we can further enhance the performance of existing security layers by automatically blocking all bad IP addresses and regions before they can reach the customer’s network.


Investment firm case study

Using Ixia ThreatARMOR at the perimeter, the customer was able to very quickly reduce its attack surface whilst allowing its existing security layers to concentrate on the core functions for which they were intended. All this within half an hour of the simple 3 step plug and play installation.

ThreatArmor in the Phoenix Datacom test network

Prior to launch, we always test the solutions we provide and support to make sure they perform as expected.

In the case of ThreatArmor, we placed a unit in front of our test network and left it there for a couple of weeks. When we came back, we were very pleasantly surprised. Click here to learn more.


As a channel-only solution, ThreatArmor is available exclusively from Ixia’s carefully selected channel partners.
