The latest achievement of Trend Micro’s TippingPoint TX Series demonstrates its ability to provide effective, high-speed inline network inspection without sacrificing performance.

“The challenges of running a modern data center demand a powerful IPS solution capable of blocking threats at high speeds without sacrificing performance,” said Don Closser, general manager of TippingPoint for Trend Micro. “We believe this recognition reinforces our ability to go beyond next-generation IPS to achieve accelerated, automated time-to-protection and deliver high performance for the most demanding network environments. Leading companies out on our TX Series is a key piece of their multi-layered, cross-generational approach to cybersecurity.”

NSS Labs rated throughput at 82,076 Mbps for IPv4 traffic, which is higher than the TX Series claimed performance of 80 Gbps (80,000 Mbps), and latency was tested at 8 microseconds or lower. Total cost of ownership for the TX Series stands at under $7 per protected Mbps.
