Brinkster Selects Radware's Attack Mitigation System To Protect Its Cloud And Hosting Customers Against Cyber Attacks

MAHWAH, New Jersey, October 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Radware ®(NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced that global hosting and cloud service provider Brinkster has deployed Radware's Attack Mitigation System (AMS) to help protect Brinkster's customers worldwide against the new generation of sophisticated, multi-vectored cyber attacks.

Headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, Brinkster offers dedicated and managed hosting and cloud computing services to over 50,000 customers ranging from small start-ups to large corporations with the majority of its small and midsize customers using its shared hosting services.  As Brinkster's business in this segment grew, it looked to Radware for a security solution to protect its infrastructure against not only incoming hacking attempts on its servers, but also attempts from hackers to use its shared servers to launch outbound attacks.  What's more, the solution also had to meet Brinkster's rigorous demands for uninterrupted network uptime so it could deliver on its service level agreements (SLAs).  

Radware's AMS gave Brinkster an advantage over the security offerings of its incumbent network security provider because of Radware's unique and evolved approach to providing converged perimeter security.  Radware's use of behavioral analysis technology in detecting multi-vector cyber attacks set its technology apart from the standard signature-based techniques used by other intrusion prevention system vendors.  

Also, because of the growing portion of Brinkster's data traffic that is secured and encrypted by the SSL protocol, Radware's AMS delivered a security solution that can detect and mitigate denial of service (DoS) and distributed DoS (DDoS) attacks that are SSL encrypted.  Today's anti-DoS security solutions do not effectively mitigate HTTP-encrypted DoS and DDoS attacks. Through patent-pending technology, Radware's AMS is the first security solution of its kind that can protect against high-rate, SSL-based, Web-encrypted DoS and DDoS attacks.
