MAHWAH, New Jersey, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced recent agreements with two U.S.-based social networking companies to deploy Radware's award winning Attack Mitigation System (AMS) security solution to address expanding network security needs including improved protection against a range of sophisticated, new-generation cyber threats. The combined agreements represent a multi-million dollar investment in network security.
Radware's AMS is helping these firms put network infrastructure protections in place as they pursue programs to upgrade security policies and to insure network uptime for their users. Social networking companies have been targets of frequent cyber attacks and believe their tightened IT security policies and rapid growth globally will inspire 'hacktivists' to launch more attempts to bring down their networks.
Before purchasing Radware's solution, the companies compared AMS with a variety of security solutions from other vendors. They chose AMS based on performance, attack detection within SSL sessions, and its mitigation capabilities that far exceeded other product offerings. In addition one of the key factors was the proven expertise of Radware's Emergency Response Team (EMS) to help manage a cyber attack in real time with global 24 x 7 availability.
"Data center and network security managers must maneuver through an increasingly difficult and always changing threat landscape; and only Radware's Attack Mitigation System has the proven ability to defend against the new generation of sophisticated, multi-level cyber attacks," said Carl Herberger, vice president, Security, Radware. "What's more, the combination of Radware's AMS technology and the expertise of Radware's ERT consultants provide probably the most effective cyber security services available today.
