Entelar Signs Reseller Agreement with Radware

Entelar to offer Radware’s application and network security solutions

AUCKLAND, New Zealand and MAHWAH, N.J., April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, and Entelar announced today that they have signed a reseller agreement. As part of the agreement, Entelar is expanding its vendor offerings to include Radware’s application and network security solutions. Entelar, a New Zealand-owned IT distributor and subsidiary of Spark NZ Trading Limited, has its roots in aftermarket services and reverse logistics in the information and communications technology (ICT) space.

Entelar’s chief executive officer, Victoria Mahan said, “We are really excited to announce this partnership with Radware, which enhances our portfolio and helps to support our customers in providing cyber security solutions to their clients. Partnering with Radware is another example of our investment in New Zealand and our ambitions for growth.”

For application security, Radware delivers web application firewall (WAF), bot manager, API security, and DDoS protection solutions. The security solutions are built on patented behavioural-based algorithms that learn behaviour traffic patterns and then separate malicious and legitimate traffic to deliver a higher level of security with lower false positives. For network security, Radware’s DefensePro® DDoS protection automatically defends against burst, DNS, and TLS/SSL attacks, as well as ransom DDoS campaigns, IoT botnets, and other types of cyber-threats.

Josh Bahlman, Spark Group CISO, general manager of Telco Cloud, and Entelar board director said, “Spark has long been working with Radware. By establishing this new partnership with Entelar, it allows us to provide the next evolution of products and services to the market. Given the evolution of attacks saturating networks as well as attacking web applications, Radware has always provided extremely advanced and innovative solutions. I’m looking forward to seeing how we can take this partnership to help New Zealand businesses and network operators, large and small, further increase the maturity of New Zealand’s cyber security posture.” 

“We look forward to working with Entelar to deliver state-of-the-art cyber protection for its customers,” said Mathew Gomizel, Radware’s regional director for Australia and New Zealand. “In today’s threat landscape, companies can no longer afford to sacrifice protection for innovation. The risks are too high. Radware offers them frictionless security, which delivers maximum protection while keeping their business agile and competitive.”
