MAHWAH, N.J., May 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Change has always been a threat to businesses, but the rate at which cyber security threats and applications evolve adds new urgency for organizations to adapt. 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, is helping them do so with an expanded portfolio of Cloud Security Services that continuously adapts in step with evolving threats and ongoing development of applications.
Radware now offers a full suite of cloud protection services that can give organizations the optimal protection they need and fit within their unique network and application environments. This new Cloud Security Service offering is the only adaptive solution that combines cloud DDoS, volumetric, and application firewall attack protection into a configuration that is unique to the client’s needs, whether that is an always-on, on-demand, or hybrid solution. Once installed, Radware’s Cloud Security Services will automatically adapt to evolving threats and protected assets.
Cyberattacks evolve at a blinding pace. To protect themselves, organizations must regularly adjust to the changing environment and minimize human intervention. For businesses with cloud-based network infrastructure, or that don’t have the bandwidth to support comprehensive in-house security resources, this new offering can provide much-needed protection.
Radware’s new suite of Always-On Cloud Security Services will automatically detect and mitigate a wide range of attack vectors, including DDoS, burst attacks, complex volumetric attacks, SSL-based attacks, zero-day attacks, SQL injections, and more. In fact, it is the only cloud-based solution available today that can mitigate SSL-based attacks while maintaining user data confidentiality. This means that the organization can remain focused on business operations, while Radware addresses the attack.
The evolution of the cyberattack landscape is not the only risk to an organization’s network security. Whether in a cloud, hybrid cloud, or data center environment, the fluidity of application development and modification can also create a bevy of unintended security risks. Radware's new suite of cloud security services is the first continuously adaptive service that automatically generates protections for zero-day attacks within seconds and continuously adjusts to new applications and updates required protections.
“Today’s attack landscape is fully automated, complex, and encrypted,” said Haim Zelikovsky, Vice President of Cloud Business at Radware. “With the size and sophistication of the threat landscape evolving at such a rapid rate, businesses need a security solution that can learn and adapt at pace with the attacks. Many organizations have either migrated into a cloud environment or they don’t have the in-house security staff or the resources to keep up. By offering Radware’s Cloud Security Services, we can do it for them.”
“Through 2017, 40 percent of most organizations' IT budgets will be allocated for spending on cloud and cloud-related services,” wrote Ed Anderson, Research VP and Sid Nag, Research Director at Gartner. “When asked about their top three inhibitors to cloud adoption, 63 percent of organizations cite concerns about security as the most important.”*
Radware’s Cloud Security Services address these issues with cloud WAF and DDoS protection technologies that provide the widest security coverage. The services offer:
- The first continuously adaptive web security service that automatically adapts to evolving threats and protected assets by:
- Automatically generating protections for zero-day attacks within seconds through behavioral-based detection coupled with real-time signature creation.
- Automatically identifying, blacklisting and blocking machines that are used for attacks regardless of the IP they hide behind through IP-agnostic fingerprinting technology.
- Automatically detecting and protecting new applications as they’re added to the network through automatic policy generation technology.
- The only SSL attack mitigation in the cloud that maintains user data confidentiality and removes operational dependencies between a service provider and the organization when keys are changed. The solution also allows for use of wildcard certificates to reduce operational complexity when needing to protect a large number of subdomains.
- Fully managed 24/7 service for both on-premise and cloud-based deployments, covering both WAF and DDoS protection. Delivered by battle-proven security experts, this service provides full visibility for security status and attack to your mobile device.
- Over 2TB of mitigation capacity and dedicated scrubbing centers that segregate clean and DDoS attack traffic as part of a robust global cloud security network.
“Businesses of all sizes are attacked on a daily basis,” said Carl Herberger, Vice President of Security Solutions at Radware. “This cloud-only offering presents a viable enterprise-grade option for a wide range of organizations to defend themselves from growing cybersecurity threats.”
