NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Cisco ASA 5525---X v5.3.1. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) methodology v5.4 available on www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Cisco’s participation. For additional information on NGFW technology, refer to the NSS Analysis Brief entitled “What Do CIOs Need to Know About Next Generation Firewalls?”

The Akamai approach to WAF combines:
An anomaly detection model
A repeatable testing framework to measure effectiveness
Threat intelligence to identify the latest threats
A cloud platform for global scale
Managed security services to help organizations better protect their websites and web applications over time
To compete successfully in today’s economy, companies from all industries require the ability to deliver software faster, with higher quality, and reduced risk and costs. This is only possible with a modern software factory that can deliver quality software continuously. Yet for most enterprises, testing has not kept pace with modern development methodologies. A new approach to software testing is required: Continuous Testing.
In the first session in a series, join product management leadership to gain in-depth insights on how by shifting testing left, and automating all aspects of test case generation and execution, continuous testing, it enables you to deliver quality software faster than ever.
