Ixia Speeds up Time to Deployment with New Developer Solution

New Ixia Developer solution transforms development lifecycle for software developers reducing development risks and costs; speeds time to deployment

Ixia has announced the addition of Ixia Developer to its comprehensive portfolio of testing solutions. Ixia Developer is an agile application performance and security resilience tool. It helps developers find bugs early, transforming the development lifecycle, reducing software development risks and costs, and speeding time to deployment.

Agile development is rapidly becoming business critical, as the time from development to deployment is no longer measured in months, but days or even hours. As such, despite early and continuous testing, products often contain bugs and vulnerabilities that slip through the cracks. In fact, according to the NIST, the annual cost incurred by these vulnerabilities in the U.S. alone is about $59.6 billion.

Ixia Developer tackles this problem head on. It generates rich and realistic application traffic along with malicious attacks and automated threats, enabling agile developers to find bugs and vulnerabilities as they write code. Ixia Developer also offers developer-specific functionality, such as a comprehensive built-in debugger, and the ability to import and replay packet captures.

Ixia Developer customers can also access built-in community features. These include referring colleagues and providing real-time feedback, while receiving monthly updates. As a fully virtualized solution, Ixia Developer can be deployed in minutes. It also eliminates the need for costly hardware investments from the desktop, to the laptop, to the data center, and to the cloud.

Sunil Kalidindi, Vice President of Product Management at Ixia, said “The need for speed is understandable, but quality shouldn’t be sacrificed in the process. Ixia Developer allows agile development and comprehensive, automated testing to happen in tandem—presenting the most realistic situations for the best understanding of potential bugs and vulnerabilities in any development cycle.”

Aria Eslambolchizadeh, Executive Director Quality Engineering, at SonicWALL commented, “We really like Ixia Developer, not just because it has many built in debugging and traffic generation capabilities, but its ease of use and VM based-deployment has made adoption by our engineers much easier. Ixia Developer has enabled our developers to do the testing themselves, saving valuable time in fixing issues. In addition, the traffic generator has helped both our developers and QA Engineers to validate bugs, while proving the real application monitoring capabilities of our security devices. This is critical for SonicWALL’s network security devices.”
