Certified Secure
You know your product is secure, but do your potential customers?



Miercom integrates your needs with its proprietary Miercom Security Test Suite to form an individual methodology for testing your product. Our engineers will submit your product(s) to a series of attacks and conduct an overall risk assessment. Tests include (but are not limited to): vulnerability analyses, common hacks, known threats, and advanced hacking schemes.


Our Goal
We gather data by exercising and testing the effectiveness of the inherent protection mechanisms of your device.

How we do it
Using the latest test equipment, software, and malicious content, we test the ability of a product to withstand network attacks and continue to perform their primary function. Security features are validated using a detailed methodology to provide objective and accurate test results.

What will be validated
Vendor systems are reviewed in the following categories: authorization, authentication, encryption, application-specific security, and features. Additional evaluations: ease of use, performance impact, installation impact, management, and reporting mechanisms.

Where do you stand
Should you choose, your product can be tested in comparison to different company approaches of combating a given security problem. The emphasis on this particular avenue of testing is to demonstrate the product’s features and functionality. See how well you stand up to competing products, or utilize results to consider ways that the product can improve its overall security.
