NetSecOPENCertifies TippingPoint Threat Protection System

Choosing the right solution

Navigating through the current security market to choose the right solutions has becomes a challenge even for the savviest IT security buyers. To bring you greater clarity when comparing solution offerings, we’ve submitted our Trend Micro™ TippingPoint™ Threat Protection System 5500TX to NetSecOPEN for review.

This has resulted in the certification of Trend Micro TippingPoint 5500TX NGIPS by NetSecOpen against this new test standard, showing powerful performance capabilities. Additionally, UNH-IOL verified a 100% block rate against the public and private CVE lists.


“Repeatability and reproducibility are two of the most important elements when relying on independent third-party test results. Proprietary test methodologies have too often left security buyers baffled when comparing real life performance with the numbers claimed in vendor data sheets and in selective third-party tests.”

Blake Sutherland, VP & GM of Trend Micro TippingPoint
