Ixia BreakingPoint Cyber Range Solutions Used During Pacific Endeavor To Enhance Communication Performance And Cyber Network Defenses In Pacific Theater

Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) today announced the company’s continued participation in Cyber Endeavor, the United States Pacific Command’s paramount cyber security collaboration, familiarization and engagement program designed to strengthen partner-nation cyber defense capabilities. During Pacific Endeavor at Cyber Endeavor, the participating nations used the Ixia BreakingPoint cyber range solution to run Green-, Red- and Blue-team exercises to enhance performance, harden defenses, validate methodologies and train next-generation cyber warriors.

News Highlights

Pacific Endeavor at Cyber Endeavor is an interoperability cyber war exercise for military communication systems held annually since 2004. The mission of the event is to build collaboration among technology providers and government and nongovernment organizations, to develop core competencies, and to offer in-depth exploration of aspects of providing confidentiality, integrity and availability of critical communications. Additionally, the exercises are done to harden current communication infrastructures to be resilient in the face of cyber attack and train personnel to recognize threats and avert attacks before damage occurs and communications systems are interrupted.

Ixia BreakingPoint cyber range solutions and cyber security experts were used during Pacific Endeavor to create cyber war conditions and:
  • Battle-test current network devices and systems in order to harden their resiliency to both recreational and malicious traffic while remaining stable and delivering communications.
  • Validate current cyber security test methodologies to validate the future performance of network devices such as next-generation firewall, firewall, application identification, IPS, antivirus, antimalware, antispyware and others to function against advanced persistent threats and the very latest attacks.
  • Identify the potential limits and vulnerabilities of current network infrastructure and optimize it for ultimate performance.
  • Train military personnel.

Commentary on Pacific Endeavor Cyber Security Exercises

"Pacific Endeavor enables the 22 partner-nation participants to immediately put into use the information received, to enhance overall information assurance and harden computer network defenses,” said Scott Griffin, GS-13 U.S. Pacific Command, J651 Technical Director, Multinational Communications Interoperability Program (MCIP). He added, “Ixia, along with CICRA and Naval Postgraduate School, presented hands-on facilitation during the second week of Cyber Endeavor, leading the cyber range training session by incorporating Green-, Red- and Blue-team aspects of network management and protection. This framework enforced key processes and technologies and further developed capacities of the participants to maintain and defend critical network infrastructures during humanitarian assistance and disaster response.”
