Original Press Release:
Radware Introduces LinkProof NG - New Enterprise Gateway Solution to Optimize WAN Connectivity
LinkProof NG Extends Service Level Assurance for On-Premise and Cloud Applications Access Over the WAN, Helps Deliver 24x7 Availability With Optimized Performance for Improved User Productivity
MAHWAH, N.J. -- Radware(R) (Nasdaq:RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions ensuring optimal service level for applications in virtual, cloud and software defined data centers, today introduced LinkProof(R) NG, a multi-homing and enterprise gateway solution that can help guarantee users optimized WAN connectivity service levels per application - whether the application is deployed on premise or in the cloud.
As WAN connectivity requirements for enterprises have evolved substantially, it has created the need for service level assurance and WAN link security which legacy multi-homing solutions such as Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) can't address. LinkProof NG addresses these connectivity requirements by offering service level based routing of multiple WAN links which helps improve WAN link usage and service levels of applications deployed on premise and in public/hybrid clouds.
"As more applications are deployed in multiple locations and there is a wider adoption of real-time applications like VoIP, desktop sharing/collaboration tools and streaming video, the dependency for uninterrupted WAN access will continue to grow," says Brad Casemore, research director of datacenter networks, IDC. "LinkProof NG is designed to ensure that mission-critical and latency-sensitive applications are served via the 'high-SLA' WAN links while non-critical traffic is being throttled down."
LinkProof NG also ensures the service levels of web-based applications by holistically combining link load balancing, web performance optimization, end-to-end real-user service level monitoring and cost-effective scalability. It can also provide visibility into the service level of their applications per WAN link, with reports for fast and proactive troubleshooting of application performance.
Radware's link load balancer also incorporates a set of security features that includes a web application firewall (WAF) deployment architecture that defends all on premise web applications it front-ends and automatic diversion of attack traffic to scrubbing centers. Rerouting volumetric attacks helps avoid pipe saturation which threatens application service levels.
Additionally, LinkProof NG supports hybrid WAN architectures by routing traffic targeted at the enterprise data center to a specified link, while routing traffic going to the Internet to another separate link. This allows organizations to select the most appropriate link according to its planned usage, thereby reducing costs and enhancing link utilization.
"There is a misconception that most WAN connectivity issues can be solved by just adding more bandwidth, but ISPs still experience connectivity outages and service degradations," says Gabi Malka, chief operating officer, Radware. "This in turn, has made it tougher to ensure application service levels and optimized cloud access at the enterprise data center and branch offices."
Malka added "IT infrastructure managers are seeking predictable service levels of applications as this has a direct effect on employee productivity, customer satisfaction and revenues for their organization. Having the ability to provide 24/7 WAN connectivity is key for any enterprise."
