Radware Expands DDoS Protection for Leading Portuguese Telecom Provider NOS

Enables NOS to resell DDoS detection and mitigation to customers as a managed service

MAHWAH, N.J., Feb. 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, announced that it expanded its relationship with NOS, one of the largest communications and entertainment groups in Portugal. The telecom leader is increasing its Radware security defenses to further safeguard traffic across its growing global cloud infrastructure and advance its reseller capabilities.

Leading 5G provider in Portugal, NOS has 5.9 million mobile phone customers, 1.6 million television customers and over 5.3 million households covered with FTTH. NOS chose Radware for its superior technology, technical expertise, and customer responsiveness.

As part of the agreement, NOS increased its investment in Radware’s DefensePro® DDoS Protection and Emergency Response Team services. In addition, NOS purchased Radware’s Managed Security Service Provider Portal Solution, enabling the carrier to resell DDoS detection and mitigation to its customers as a managed service. Radware closed the deal in conjunction with its OEM partnership with Check Point Software Technologies, a leading AI-powered, cloud-delivered cyber security platform provider.

“Not only does Radware offer superior DDoS protection, but Radware’s customer support has been key at increasing the safety of NOS’ infrastructure and its customers,” said Paulo Ribeiro, director of fixed network engineering at NOS. “Based upon our long-standing, positive experience, we know we can depend on Radware to quickly respond to our requests. In addition to helping us protect our own network, our expanded engagement has created a valuable competitive advantage by enabling us to resell DDoS protection as a service to our customers.”

According to Roberto Neisser, regional director for Radware, “NOS is transforming business telecommunications in Portugal and continues to innovate and invest in technology to support its new services. We value our relationship with NOS and are honored that the company continues to choose Radware for its evolving security needs. The expanded relationship validates the strength of Radware’s people, approach, and technology solutions.”
