MAHWAH, N.J., Dec. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware® (Nasdaq:RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, announced that Manx Telecom, the leading provider of hosting and communications solutions on the Isle of Man has selected Radware's DefensePro® to help protect its network from DDoS attacks and offer customers a cyber-attack mitigation service.
In its local market, Manx Telecom offers a full range of fixed line, mobile, data and hosting services to businesses, consumers, and the public sector. In global markets, Manx Telecom provides world class data center and hosting solutions, connectivity and a growing portfolio of innovative communication solutions.
With the need to protect two Internet-facing data centers for mobile & fixed broadband and corporate and hosting networks, Manx Telecom was looking for a reliable solution with a greater level of protection against volumetric and application layer attacks. After a six-month process of reviewing solutions from other vendors, Radware's DefensePro was selected.
Radware's DefensePro is a real-time, behavioral based attack mitigation device that protects against network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, network anomalies, information theft and other emerging cyber-attacks. DefensePro can be deployed inline or out-of-path (OOP) in a scrubbing center to provide the highest mitigation accuracy within the shortest time.
"Radware's ability to mitigate at the edge of the network with a scalable solution that can grow with our needs was a deciding factor for us," says Kevin Paige, chief technology officer at Manx Telecom. "With DefensePro, we'll have the capacity to maintain business continuity by blocking attacks and not the traffic of legitimate users at the edge of the network, providing our customers with a greater level of protection than was previously possible."
