MAHWAH, N.J., March 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware® (Nasdaq:RDWR) a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers and OJSC VimpelCom (Beeline TM), part of the VimpelCom Group today announce a new service for business customers called "Protection from DDoS attacks." The service is based on Radware's Attack Mitigation System (AMS), a real-time network and application security solution.

DDoS attacks have become increasingly complicated and legacy defense systems not only fail to prevent these attacks but oftentimes, become the target. Today's mitigation against DDoS attacks requires specifically tailored products. Radware's DefensePro® and AMS successfully solve this problem by enabling full automatic protection in seconds.

Following the rising demand for cloud based anti-DDoS services in Russia, Beeline Business and Radware's new joint service for business customers offers several key differentiation points compared to legacy defense systems:

  • Shortest time to protection
  • Widest attack coverage, including mitigation of SSL based attacks
  • Volumetric network attacks mitigated by Beeline Scrubbing Center
  • No SLA degradation – no effect on user-experience without impacting legitimate traffic
  • 24x7 support by Beeline's SOC and Radware Emergency Response Team
  • Customer intervention not required for mitigation process
  • Minimal configuration
  • System changes not required

"We understand the problems our Enterprise customers face today. As one of the largest Internet service providers and business entities in Russia, we often witness an escalating number of network attacks," says Sergey Petrov, vice-president, head of B2B business unit VimpelCom, Russia. "This new solution allows our customers to successfully protect their assets against DDoS attacks and to decrease the cyber threats in real time. When the customer seeks a solution from a single service provider, that end user will also receive full access to the benefits of the Beeline Business services."

"Radware Enterprise customers have documented successful protection from DDoS attacks and as a result, we have received numerous requests for operator services based on our solutions," says Michael Soukonnik, Radware CIS and Baltic regional director. "We are very pleased to offer this joint solution and equally impressed that Beeline Business was able to successfully develop and implement a new service in a short period of time."
