MAHWAH, N.J., April 29, 2016 (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, was awarded Best Managed Security Service for 2016 by SC Magazine. Each year, the SC Awards honor the most outstanding contributions in the information security industry. Radware’s Attack Mitigation Service was recognized by a panel representing the audience of SC Magazine as the top solution in the Trust Awards category.
“With cyberattacks taking place round the clock, the threat landscape has never been more complex and difficult to defend against than it is now,” said Carl Herberger, Vice President of Security Products for Radware. “This award further validates our approach to keeping our customers fully protected, an honor considering the judges were actual users. By helping them defend against and mitigate any attacks, their business is more secure and can thrive without disruption.”
In most enterprises, IT security resources are already too scarce. In a recent extensive study by Frost & Sullivan, 62 percent of the respondents stated that their organizations have too few information security professionals.
“Due to shortage of resources, security professionals in most organizations constantly struggle to accomplish their web security tasks, especially in the face of the rapidly evolving threat landscape and the continuously delivered applications that present new vulnerabilities on a daily basis,” said Haim Zelikovsky, Vice President of Cloud Business for Radware. “Radware Cloud Security Services address this challenge by providing enterprises fully managed cloud security services, in which Radware’s Emergency Response Teams assume end-to-end responsibility for deploying, configuring, and tuning the protections, and on detecting, alerting and mitigating attacks from the web.”
Winners for the newly revamped Trust Awards (formerly Reader Trust Awards) were chosen by a distinguished group of leading IT security professionals from the SC Magazine readership and selected by SC Magazine’s editorial team. Entrants were narrowed down to a select group of finalists before undergoing a rigorous final judging process to determine the winner in each category.
“The Trust Award category is one of the most highly anticipated designations at the SC Awards ceremony because it represents the voice of the people who are really using the products,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “Radware’s Attack Mitigation Service was chosen as the Best Managed Security Service winner for its ability to meet and exceed the needs of its customers.”
Radware provides a full suite of enterprise-grade cloud security services that protect organizations from network-level to application-level attacks launched from the web, including:
Cloud DDoS Scrubbing service: Radware’s cloud-based DDoS protection service provides DDoS attack mitigation and Internet pipe saturation defense to Radware customers that are currently using Radware’s Attack Mitigation System (AMS) with end-to-end attack mitigation (on-premises and in the cloud). This scalable DDoS protection service automatically engages once AMS detects imminent pipe saturation.
Cloud WAF service: Radware’s Cloud WAF provides full enterprise-grade WAF protection, with full coverage from all OWASP top 10 attacks. The service implements both negative and positive security models by utilizing its unique ability to automatically adapt to the continuously changing threat landscape and defendable online assets. Built with state-of-the-art machine learning technologies, Radware’s Cloud WAF Service automatically detects application domains, analyzes potential vulnerabilities, and assigns optimal protection policies. The service continuously monitors and analyzes application usage patterns, and generates granular baselines for legitimate traffic. This allows rapid detection and mitigation of zero-day attacks, and continuous fine-tuning of security policies due to changing application usage patterns.
The SC Awards, now in its 19th year, are recognized throughout the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. With the awards, SC Magazine recognizes the achievements of security professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers which offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the Trust Award category in the SC Awards.
