Firewalls

In firewall testing ICSA Labs annually tests that the network firewall is stateful and can enforce a security policy.  We also test that the firewall itself can withstand attacks, including DoS attacks.

Network Attached Peripherals

NAPS will verify that a network attached peripheral will not introduce vulnerabilities to the network where it is installed, and is not vulnerable to exploitation itself, while still providing its intended services to users.

Secure SD-WAN

In this annual testing program we test your SD-WAN solution’s support for multiple WAN paths, dynamic path selection and auto-provisioning of edge devices.  We also test that it is invulnerable to attack and provides its SD-WAN features securely.

IPSec VPN

ICSA Labs annually tests that VPN products interoperate with others in accordance with the IKEv2 and IPsec standards. For VPNs that support certificate-based signatures, ICSA Labs tests certificate installation & validation. Testing also verifies that cryptographic algorithms are properly implemented and that products are resistant to known IPsec VPN attacks.

 

Advanced Threat Defense (ATD)

ICSA Labs performs quarterly security testing of next gen anti-malware solutions to determine how well they protect enterprises from new & little-known malicious threats. In testing we deliver the threats using the most common vectors leading to enterprise breaches.

ONC Health IT

ICSA Labs is authorized by the US Federal Government, as an accredited test lab and Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB), to test and certify Health Information Technology products that support Meaningful Use.

Web Application Firewalls

In annual WAF testing, ICSA Labs attempts to defeat or circumvent the WAF product's security policy. Attacks used in testing include buffer overflow, cross site scripting (XSS), cross site request forgery (CSRF), improper input validation and other OWASP Top 10 web application threats.

IoT Security & Privacy

Depending on the kind of IoT device/sensor, ICSA Labs first chooses a suitable set of testing elements from its "IoT Security Testing Framework."  The labs then tests to determine if the IoT device/sensor includes adequate security for its intended application and environment.

Custom Testing

Custom testing services offer customized, 3rd party, expert evaluation and certification testing services designed to meet the specific needs of vendors and corporations.

Authorized Certification Body (ACB)

ICSA Labs is certified by ANSI as an Authorized Certification Body (ACB) for the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) within the US Government's Department of Health and Human Services.

Anti-Malware

As malware increases and evolves, third-party testing by ICSA Labs is increasingly important.  That's why ICSA Labs performs monthly testing of endpoint and network-based anti-malware products.

Advanced Threat Defense - Email

Every quarter, ICSA Labs tests email security solutions that are designed to protect enterprises from new & little-known malicious threats in email.

SSL-TLS VPN

In annual SSL-TLS VPN testing of products providing secure remote access to corporate resources, ICSA Labs tests that the different operation modes work properly, including a web-based Reverse Web Proxy and a Layer 3 VPN tunnel. Proper implementation of TLS, management/validation of certificates, enforcement of auth policies, and session control and cleanup are also examined.
 

Authorized Test Lab (ATL)

ICSA Labs is NVLAP-accredited as an ONC-Authorized Health IT Testing Laboratory for the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Network IPS

We annually test intrusion prevention systems (IPS) to see how well they protect against client and server-side attacks aimed at high severity vulnerabilities in enterprise software and how well the product protects against evasion techniques.

Cloud Security

ICSA Labs annually tests cloud security services including cloud firewall, cloud IPS, and cloud WAF solutions to see how well they defend against the latest attacks aimed at cloud network resources.
