This document provides test results for the Versa Networks FlexVNF v16.1R2-S8.

During the NSS Labs 2019 Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) Group Test, the Versa Networks FlexVNF v16.1R2-S7 failed to detect 24 evasions. This affected its placement in NSS’ 2019 NGFW Security Value Map (SVM)™.

After working closely with NSS, Versa Networks updated its software and released the FlexVNF v16.1R2-S8. The updated device was subjected to testing under the same NGFW Test Methodology (v9.0) and appropriately handled all 406 of the evasions it was tested against.
