Radware Releases Defense4All for Helium - DoS and DDoS Detection and Mitigation as a Native Network Service for OpenDaylight

Radware's SDN Application Provides Protection From DoS and DDoS as a Native Network Service in Helium - Second Release of Open Source SDN Platform

MAHWAH, N.J., Sept. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware® (Nasdaq:RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced its ongoing contribution to the OpenDaylight Project with Defense4All™, an SDN application that provides DoS and DDoS protection as a native network service for Helium.

Helium is the second software release from the open source OpenDaylight community that is collaborating to build an open, common platform for SDN and NFV. The software has evolved to include 11 new protocols, applications and technologies making it the most flexible and interoperable platform available.

Radware's Defense4All offers carriers and cloud providers DoS and DDoS detection and mitigation as a native network service. Utilizing the OpenDaylight SDN Controller that programs SDN-enabled networks to become part of the DoS/DDoS protection service itself, Defense4All allows operators to provision a DoS/DDoS protection service per virtual network segment or per customer.

"We are pleased to be part of OpenDaylight and are committed to strengthen this partnership by releasing new features for Defense4All that will further enhance this project," says David Aviv, vice president, advanced services, Radware. "As security should be an integral part of the network services rather than being hosted by the network, operators can provision a DoS/DDoS protection service per virtual network segment or per customer, reducing both time and cost."

"Security is a key driver for SDN and Radware has been actively participating in the OpenDaylight community to enable its security technology to work with a wide range of environments," said Neela Jacques, executive director, OpenDaylight Project. "It's contributions like this that demonstrate how OpenDaylight is becoming the de facto standard platform for the industry. We applaud their efforts and look forward to their continued contribution to the community."

As part of the OpenDaylight SDN Controller framework that includes Radware's Defense4All SDN application, Defense4All also includes a reference code for the automation of attack mitigation with Radware's DefensePro® attack mitigation product line. Since Hydrogen – OpenDaylight's first release – several new features have been added to Radware's Defense4All.

  • Detection of DoS/DDoS attacks using behavioral analysis technology. Once an attack is detected it programs the network to forward suspicious traffic flows to a DoS mitigation device.
  • Users may now define a generic mitigation device for attack scrubbing.
  • Web graphical user interface that enables the user to set up protected network objects and policies, view security event logs and generate historical reports.
