In 2018 the BI.ZONE team carried out more than 20 large load testing projects and cooperated with one of our largest customers — one of the top 5 banks of Russia — in preparing their infrastructure to repel DDoS attacks. As part of these projects, the security and performance of Firewall / NGFW solutions, antispam products, load balancing solutions, DPI and NFV products, etc. were tested.
While the preparation of the infrastructure for DDoS attacks, our team conducted: level L3 DDoS attacks on edge routers and L4-L7 level attacks on resources, tested Anti-DDoS systems, analysed the configuration of the Internet segment in terms of protection against DDoS and 10 channels of telecom operators to block any attacks.
Security solutions testing and analysis
A successful DDoS attack can completely knock the business out of its tracks and result in an outflow of customers and serious financial losses. Any company can become a victim of a DDoS attack, and the extent to which it will suffer — depends on the state of the network protection systems. Load testing of networks and network security systems allows you to:
Evaluate the response of systems to various levels of traffic and DDoS attacks
Check compliance with the security level and increase the level of protection
Identify problems in the configuration of the current security assets
Our team at BI.ZONE conducts load testing of networks and information security tools using equipment from the market leaders in security testing and their own-developed guidelines. One special feature is the ability to organise a wide range of attacks and large amounts of traffic. This allows companies to evaluate and optimise network performance and take reasonable steps to avoid potential failures and security incidents.
DDoS and security testing
We perform complex DoS / DDoS drills to test the functionality of systems and their stress threshold. With this solution companies can identify issues of infrastructure security and evaluate its resilience to targeted hacking and DDoS attacks.
Testing Equipment L2-L3
Regression, functional or load testing of network devices and network infrastructure as a whole. The service is a solution to the problem of improving network performance, identifying problems in setting up equipment or comparing network operation during configuration changes.
Testing equipment L4-L7
Regression, functional or load testing of network services or specialised equipment. The core aim of this solution is to ensure quality of services, define the limits of scaling existing services while maintaining a high level of quality, improve user experience of working with services.
Load Testing Web Applications
Organisation of load testing of web applications by simulating the work of real users, taking into account the quality of the connection. This service helps identify bottlenecks in the infrastructure of web services, increase productivity, improve the quality of company services and customer experience, as well as predict the load limit of the infrastructure.
Compliance Testing in Competitive Procedures
Testing of network security solutions and supplier selection at the procurement stage. The service allows you to test solutions and choose the ones which directly meet your requirements, as well as ensure you get the best offers from suppliers.
Organisation of periodic composite DoS / DDoS attacks on organisation resources. The service helps solve the problems of preparing the infrastructure and personnel to repel real attacks.
