Enterprise Firewall Performance Tester

Enterprise firewalls improve network security by segmenting corporate LANs. However, each of the advanced security functions (e.g. antivirus, app-control, IPS and SSL decryption) has a performance penalty. Combined, these features can seriously reduce network performance (in some instance up to 90%) – frustrating users and reducing business performance.

Safire is the only solution on the market that solves this problem quickly and cost-effectively.

Simply connect Safire to your firewall, define a traffic profile that matches your network, and select the features you want to measure. Initiate the test and in minutes Safire will compile a PDF report detailing how each feature impacts performance, with easy-to-understand graphs that clearly pinpoint the firewall’s breaking point and a wealth of other data.

Safire is a simple and cost-efficient tool for testing firewall performance prior to deployment:

  • Comparing different enterprise firewalls prior to purchasing
  • Validating performance prior to installation

It can also pay to test firewall performance after it has been deployed:

  • Checking performance after firewall software updates and patches
  • Verifying performance following significant LAN traffic changes
  • Measuring performance impact of emerging applications
