IP Country Blocker Appliance Tested with BreakingPoint

The PoliWall IP Threat Blocker appliance was recently tested using the BreakingPoint Storm™ to measure product resiliency in the face of massive scale simulated cyber attack from millions of users and hundreds of applications.

Performance testing shows PoliWall performed high-speed IP packet filtering with low latency while maintaining high throughput and TCP connection rates. The PoliWall belongs to a class of specialized perimeter security devices designed not to compete with firewalls and routers, but to augment them with new capabilities and higher performance.  

The PoliWall in-line appliance blocks inbound and outbound traffic by country and by IP reputation block lists at line speed. By stopping needless traffic and malicious IPs at the perimeter, the workload on systems deeper inside the network is decreased, making routers, firewalls, and IPS/IDS systems more effective at stopping attacks. By blocking outbound connections to the millions of IPs on TechGuard’s managed IP threat lists, the chance of sensitive data unintentionally leaving your network is greatly reduced.
The three PoliWall models tested were the entry level M10 with a throughput of 100 megabits, the enterprise level G01 for gigabit environments, and the virtual V01 for cloud deployments.

•   The PoliWall baseline tests ran a 'US Only' traffic policy (equivalent to loading 12,000 IP ranges in a firewall or router), while blocking 30M IP addresses tied to botnets and malware.

•   Each PoliWall was tested under exact network traffic conditions in a deployment environment that included routers, firewalls, IDS, and IPS systems.

•   The performance data shows packet latency, packet throughput, TCP connection rate, and resiliency during a SYN Flood DDoS attack.
