Agile test tool to help find bugs early

Problem: Bumps and bugs on the path to development

Developers today are expected to deliver innovative software programs quickly and efficiently, yet they are running into a number of obstacles. For example, testing for defects is a critical step in the software coding process, but it can seriously stall the development cycle. Tight budgets and high complexity can limit the effectiveness of these testing tools. And the cost of fixing bugs during the development cycle is four times higher than in the initial coding stages. This makes early prevention key to reducing software development risks, time, and costs.

Solution: Application performance and security testing made simple

Ixia Developer is an agile application performance and security resilience test tool that helps developers find bugs early in the development cycle. Ixia Developer features an integrated debugger that helps locate the primary source of defects. An easy-to-use, fast, and responsive web-based user interface significantly reduces the time it takes to move from test configuration to actual packets on the network. And by leveraging a robust ATI engine, Ixia Developer always includes the most up-to-date apps and security strikes.

For developers, early bug detection allows them to iterate more quickly, and test more often, while enhancing on-time delivery of new software. For business leaders, Ixia Developer boosts the bottom line by eliminating the costly rework associated with late-stage defect discovery, providing a greater return on technology investments.

“We really like Ixia Developer, not just because it has many built in debugging and traffic generation capabilities, but its ease of use and VM based-deployment has made adoption by our engineers much easier,” said Aria Eslambolchizadeh, Executive Director Quality Engineering, at SonicWALL. “Ixia Developer has enabled our developers to do the testing themselves, saving valuable time in fixing issues.  In addition, the traffic generator has helped both our developers and QA Engineers to validate bugs, while proving the real application monitoring capabilities of our security devices.  This is critical for SonicWALL’s network security devices.”
