Radware, a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced a $2 million sale of its Attack Mitigation System (AMS) security solution to a leading Tier 1 wireless carrier in North America.
Radware’s AMS solution will integrate the carrier’s existing point security capabilities — such as firewall and proxy protection, signature-based intrusion prevention, anti-spam gateways and scrubbing center denial of service mitigation — into an holistic attack mitigation system. The carrier chose Radware AMS for its ability to deliver synergy to multiple protection modules as part of one system while providing unified reporting and compliance. As a result, the Radware AMS solution will help the carrier defend against the increasingly sophisticated multi-vector attacks that strike network IT assets at multiple layers, large scale botnet attacks, and attackers that imitate real users in order to misuse services and application resources.
Under the agreement, Radware will begin installing the system in January 2012.
“While the customer’s initial focus was firewall protection, managers felt relying on individual point security tools alone for network infrastructure security were not enough to protect against the new wave of sophisticated cyber attacks,” said Ron Meyran, director, security product marketing, Radware. “Network equipment and applications infrastructures are typically the main targets of these multi-layered attacks, and Radware’s AMS offers a unique solution to integrate their existing security tools into an holistic strategy, achieving a real-time, proactive, attack mitigation system.”
Radware’s AMS is a real-time network and application attack mitigation solution that protects the application infrastructure against network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, information theft, Web service attacks and Web defacement. It contains a protection layer with security modules including denial-of-service (DoS) protection, network behavioral analysis (NBA), intrusion prevention system (IPS), reputation engine and Web application firewall (WAF) to fully safeguard networks, servers and applications against known and emerging network security threats.
Radware supplements these capabilities by adding the human factor — the professional security consultants of its Emergency Response Team (ERT) who are available around the clock. As literal ‘first responders’ to cyber attacks, Radware’s ERT members gained their extensive experience by successfully dealing with some of the industry’s most notable hacking episodes, providing the knowledge and expertise to mitigate the kind of attack a business’s security team may never have handled.
Additionally, by combining these protections in a single, integrated solution, Radware AMS reduces capital expenses by avoiding the need to install multiple point security tools, and it saves on operational expenses by reducing the complexity of collecting data and managing the system.
