GrammaTech announced a technology partnership with GitLab, the single application for the DevOps lifecycle.
Ixia announced the addition of Ixia Developer to its portfolio of testing solutions.
Ixia Developer is an agile application performance and security resilience tool. It helps developers find bugs early, transforming the development lifecycle, reducing software development risks and costs, and speeding time to deployment.
Ixia Developer generates rich and realistic application traffic along with malicious attacks and automated threats, enabling agile developers to find bugs and vulnerabilities as they write code. Ixia Developer also offers developer-specific functionality, such as a comprehensive built-in debugger, and the ability to import and replay packet captures.
Further, it is easy to automate and/or embed Ixia Developer in continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) frameworks using REST APIs and a rich command line interface. The agile CI/CD model is most effective when disparate teams across service provider, QA, production, development, and vendor can streamline discovery and resolution of issues found in different phases, accelerating time to market.
Ixia Developer customers can also access built-in community features. These include referring colleagues and providing real-time feedback, while receiving monthly updates. As a fully virtualized solution, Ixia Developer can be deployed in minutes. It also eliminates the need for costly hardware investments from the desktop, to the laptop, to the data center, and to the cloud.
Sunil Kalidindi, VP of Product Management at Ixia, said “The need for speed is understandable, but quality shouldn’t be sacrificed in the process. Ixia Developer allows agile development and comprehensive, automated testing to happen in tandem—presenting the most realistic situations for the best understanding of potential bugs and vulnerabilities in any development cycle.”
