Radware Selected by Global SaaS Leader to Provide Hybrid DDoS Attack Mitigation

MAHWAH, N.J., Oct. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, today announced a multi-million-dollar deal for DDoS Protection Services with a Tier 1 SaaS organization. The purchase illustrates this company’s confidence in Radware by layering cloud DDoS on top of Radware on-premises attack mitigation to provide a robust hybrid defense solution. 

This market-leading global SaaS company was looking for a solution that offered low false positives and real-time and automated detection and mitigation for complex attacks. It required as low latency as possible for more than a dozen points of presence (POPs) and it needed seamless integration and communication with an on-premises solution to minimize downtime and latency.  The company also required a proven organization capable of handling a large-scale global deployment.

After a competitive review, the company selected Radware DDoS Protection Services because Radware’s Hybrid Defense Messaging provides critical information from the on-premises devices to Radware’s Emergency Response Team (ERT), allowing near instantaneous detection and switchover in the face of a complex attack. 

“In choosing Radware’s DDoS protection solutions, this company had the foresight to create a true hybrid defense solution,” said Roy Zisapel, President and CEO of Radware. “The global footprint and business demands of this SaaS provider required a trusted partner with a proven track record in keeping them protected. Selecting Radware for their on-premises and cloud protection gave this company the ability to solve many problems with one solution, a trend we are seeing more and more.”

“Providers of SaaS services are increasingly under attack as high-profile targets,” said David Anderson, Vice President of Sales for Radware North America. “The services they deliver are required 24x7 with zero interruption. A hybrid security service provides instant protection from DDoS attacks at the network edge while providing the capability to offload large volumetric attacks to the cloud for processing at Radware’s global data centers.”

Radware’s family of DDoS security solutions provide integrated application and network security for a best of breed, multi-layered security architecture and DDoS attack prevention. The solution provides the highest protection accuracy with patent-protected behavioral based detection to protect legitimate traffic and real-time signature creation for zero-day attack protection. Radware's hybrid DDoS protection integrates always-on detection and mitigation (on-premises or in the cloud) with cloud-based volumetric DDoS attack prevention, scrubbing, and 24x7 Emergency Response Team (ERT) support. Radware’s Defense SSL protection supports all types of encrypted attacks, inkling TCP SYN Floods, SSL Negotiation Floods, HTTPS Floods, and Encrypted Web Attacks.
