CDRouter Release 12.0 - Introducing CDRouter Security

March 26, 2020 • 2 min read

Successful home and office networks are mandatory to keep our world moving forward. Network quality and network security are the two most important factors you should be focusing on in your devices. Unfortunately, cybercriminals are targeting home/SOHO gateways and Wi-Fi APs. A compromised device not only ruins the subscriber’s experience but can also have dangerous implications to your end-users, your network, and ultimately your brand.

That’s why we’re very excited to launch CDRouter 12.0, featuring our new CDRouter Security Add-On. Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll find in 12.0.


Introducing CDRouter Security

The Security Add-on is a revolutionary way to improve quality and strengthen your product’s positioning as advanced, robust, and secure. It includes Nmap port scanning, security feature test cases like parental controls, and our unique traffic analysis capability.

CDRouter Security allows you to:

  • Validate that a device is secured when using default settings
  • Detect potentially harmful router behavior prior to deployment
  • Test a compromised device that has been isolated for lab testing
  • Ensure that provider-specified policies are met
  • Streamline regression testing after a security fix
  • Test your product security features like parental controls

CDRouter Security features a powerful traffic analysis inspection capability that uses Suricata, an open source high performance Intrusion Detection (IDS), Inline Intrusion Prevention (IPS) and network security monitoring (NSM) engine. Suricata is the industry standard in deep packet inspection and pattern matching making it incredibly useful for identifying unusual behavior of a device under test.

Adding CDRouter Security to your test capabilities is a powerful and easy way to ensure robust, secure, and reliable products for your customers. Read our full press release to learn more
