Radware’s Attack Mitigation System Selected by Leading CDN Provider

MAHWAH, N.J., May 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware® (Nasdaq:RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions ensuring optimal service level for applications in virtual, cloud and software defined data centers, announces that Limelight Networks, a leading content delivery network (CDN) provider is using Radware’s Attack Mitigation System technology for its DDoS Attack Interceptor.

As online users continue to demand faster website access, quicker download speeds and more rich multimedia experiences, CDNs provide high availability and performance through distributed networks of servers that are usually deployed in multiple data centers worldwide. As cyber-attacks are growing in scale and threaten more customers, CDN providers need to deliver robust attack mitigation as a service to their customers to ensure proper content delivery.

As a global content delivery leader committed to ensuring optimal quality of experience for their customers, Limelight Networks wanted to strengthen their ability to detect and intercept malicious internet traffic. To do this, they chose to integrate Radware’s real-time, behavioral based attack mitigation into their distributed network of data centers. This integration has dramatically strengthened Limelight’s security posture and their ability to protect a global customer base from a full gamut of attack vectors – including denial of service attacks.

“The expectation level of our customers is high. They trust that we provide a robust global delivery network for their digital content delivery needs and help to protect them from downtime, impact to brand and reputation, and revenue loss,” says Kurt Silverman, senior vice president of delivery and development at Limelight. “Limelight’s DDoS Attack Interceptor, using Radware’s attack mitigation technology, provides a full breadth of protection which gives us the edge we need to provide our customers with uninterrupted delivery of their digital content.”

“Limelight is committed to a peerless standard of content delivery,” says Amir Peles, vice president of technology for Radware. “Radware’s attack mitigation system enables Limelight to ensure their customers receive an unparalleled quality of service even while under a cyber-attack. Our cyber security solutions that Limelight is using for its DDoS Attack Interceptor are unique in that they are designed to safeguard the handling of legitimate traffic – high value content – even in the face of massive scale assaults.”

Radware and Limelight will be conducting a webinar on Wednesday, May 6th at 1:00pm EDT to discuss the current cyber-threat landscape, advanced attack mitigation techniques and how they are being harnessed within Limelight’s Attack Interceptor cloud security service.
