Partners With Markley to Build Repeatable Vendor Testing Model

The Problem

When NimbusDDOS received a request to certify a threat protection hardware appliance, CEO Andrew Shoemaker recognized he couldn't conduct the testing exclusively in their standard test environment. Their existing setup, hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS), has worked well when testing web services and applications. Shoemaker needed to find a way to quickly expand their test environment to include both a simulated attack surface and the hardware appliance.

Creating a new solution and infrastructure on his own would be too costly and time-consuming. As Shoemaker described, “We knew we needed to be able to tie the customer’s equipment into our testing infrastructure but couldn’t justify building a costly new deployment.”
