As a BreakingPoint customer or partner, what should I expect moving forward?

What will happen to BreakingPoint people?
There were two key drivers behind Ixia’s desire to acquire BreakingPoint: people and technology. The critical shortage of security experts is an increasingly dangerous problem today. BreakingPoint provides an important wealth of security expertise as well as the technology platform to scale this expertise to support customers worldwide. Ixia is excited to leverage BreakingPoint’s tremendous talent pool, senior leadership, and products to deliver much-needed security intelligence solutions.

Why is Ixia making this series (Anue, BreakingPoint) of acquisitions?
The current threat landscape is changing everything, from the way we protect data and secure infrastructures to the way we test infrastructure devices and train cyber warriors. The divide between testing tools, threat intelligence, and monitoring products has created dangerous blind spots that continue to erode the security posture of businesses and government agencies. Ixia believes organizations deserve definitive answers, not best guesses and promises.
With this planned acquisition, Ixia will leverage BreakingPoint Actionable Security Intelligence solutions and Anue network monitoring optimization solutions to provide customers with an end-to-end solution to ensure business continuity for enterprises and government organizations. Customers will now have the exclusive ability to predict and prevent the impact of cyber attacks and any changes to network applications, equipment, or configurations.
