Radware's Attack Mitigation System Chosen to Protect Multiple Datacenters in the U.S. and Abroad
MAHWAH, N.J. — RadwareŽ (Nasdaq:RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, announced it has received a multi-million contract from a global cloud provider for its Attack Mitigation System (AMS), a real-time, behavioral based attack mitigation solution.
AMS' multi-layered solution with Radware's DefenseProŽ and APSolute VisionŽ at the core, can protect against large scale and increasingly complex Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks without impacting legitimate traffic and offers a monitoring and reporting solution that provides real-time identification, prioritization and response to policy breaches, cyber-attacks and insider threats.
Through a lengthy evaluation period that compared anti-DDoS services of other vendors, Radware was selected for its robust features and ability in mitigating various types of cyber attacks. The global cloud provider will deploy the AMS to help protect more than a dozen of its datacenters around the world.
"Our customer has ramped up their global presence and required an effective cyber security solution that can mitigate a wide range of attacks on a much greater scale," says Carl Herberger, vice president of security solutions, Radware. "Our customer's success as a global cloud provider is based on the effectiveness of our security product. Our attack mitigation solution will help our customer maintain business continuity and network performance while combating virtually any threat they may face."
Additional benefits that Radware's customer will enjoy is a smaller appliance footprint that is scalable with license upgrades for throughput and a single management application to manage multiple units across multiple data centers, thus saving the organization from additional capital expenditures in the future.
"This type of anti-DDoS protection is paramount for cloud providers. As the infrastructure is shared between multiple clients, a single DDoS attack can put the entire platform at risk affecting those who may not have been directly targeted," added Herberger. "This is the type of investment in security that each and every cloud provider should never second guess."
