MAHWAH, New Jersey, February 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Radware ® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announces the introduction of DefensePipe ™, an integrated and comprehensive solution to help mitigate volumetric DDoS attacks which threaten to saturate a customer's Internet pipe, or the 'outside line' that connects enterprises to the web.
DefensePipe is an innovative market solution for end to end attack mitigation on-premise and in the cloud. Available to Radware customers that currently deploy an on-premise Attack Mitigation System (AMS), it is a scalable solution that automatically engages once the customer's AMS detects that pipe saturation is imminent.
The sharing of behavioral base line data between the on-premise AMS and DefensePipe, that includes a real-time signature created by the AMS, enables DefensePipe to start mitigation in the cloud much faster and with greater accuracy.The organization's suspicious Internet traffic is immediately diverted to the DefensePipe cloud based scrubbing center where it is distanced further from the protected network and its scalable resources can mitigate high volume attacks. Once the traffic is "cleaned" it is then sent to the organization and regular operations continue once the attack has ceased. "To effectively diminish availability-based threats, you must take a holistic approach on both detection and mitigation," says Avi Chesla, chief technology officer, Radware. "Today's security challenges, including multi-vulnerability attack campaigns, are better addressed when detection and mitigation resources appropriately match the threat type and attack target in any given time." "We've essentially extended the strength of our AMS to the cloud with this robust end to end solution that provides greater flexibility to protect against any type and size of threat - all under the hood of the same attack mitigation system," added Chesla.
