Idappcom offers Security VARs a short-cut route into Pentest Market
Ludlow, Shropshire, UK (April 8th 2014) - idappcom the specialist provider of real-time vulnerability testing and threat response tools has announced the latest release of TrafficIQ Professional (TIQ). TIQ is widely used by the major IPS, Firewall and UTM vendors as a testing and validation tool during the pre-production stages of their network security solutions' development process.

As well as providing improved functionality for its global vendor user-base, idappcom is using the announcement to signal the start of a new channel development campaign aimed at growing its network of UK and European security VARS and managed service providers interested in adding penetration testing to their client service portfolio.
"Through our focus on working with the major security vendors TIQ has become a mature, stable tool used to test and validate the effectiveness of firewall and IPS/IDS rules to protect networks against the latest exploits," commented idappcom CEO, Ray Bryant. "As such it is an ideal solution for large enterprises and public sector organisations to use to regularly audit and update their network security devices with the latest (SNORT) rules; both as a part of best security practice and to support their regulatory compliance requirements."
TrafficIQ, enables enterprise security managers and specialist consultants to routinely test security rules in a live network environment against a dynamic database currently with over 7,500 exploits, without compromising the operational performance of the network. A Microsoft Windows based technology TrafficIQ can be deployed on the simplest entry level laptops to the most advanced integrated appliances making complex auditing and testing scenarios simple with point and click graphical network settings and select and click traffic replay capabilities, without the need for development or scripting knowledge to use it.
"We are now looking to add to our network of resellers who are interested in a low cost point of entry into the penetration testing and compliance auditing market or as a platform to extend their existing managed security services particularly as a value added service to ensure that their next generation firewalls and IPS systems are continuously updated with latest security rules.
We are offering generous discounts, training, pre and post sales technical support as well as business development assistance to enable interested resellers to rapidly roll out the new TrafficIQ based services to their clients."
