MAHWAH, New Jersey, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Radware ® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced a collaborative effort with Mellanox ® Technologies.

Combining its Application Delivery and Attack Mitigation Security solutions with Mellanox Technologies' 10G and 40G NICs, illustrates an innovative ability to extract network and application information that can be translated and leveraged to a scalable solution for detection of various security threats, in real-time.

This unique solution not only permits a more resilient mobile network while enabling the Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) initiative, but it also allows a cost-effective, better-utilized mobile operation by eliminating high CPU overhead and performance hit associated with vSwitches. In addition embedded switching and SR-IOV technology results in accelerated performance and improved security, isolation, and scalability.

By using an OpenFlow interface to manage the embedded virtual switch, operators can now monitor and control traffic in real time, and through a standard control interface.  Enabling to deploy end to end Software Defined Networking (SDN) solutions, the unique solution provides mobile carriers with highly secured, resilient mobile service operation and cost-effective mobile cloud services.

"Our ADC and Security are field-proven products that are already deployed in various virtualization environments. By integrating Mellanox's industry-leading and high-bandwidth solution offers mobile carriers to drive their NFV and SDN initiatives," says Avi Chesla, chief technology officer, Radware.

"Mellanox is a leading 10/40GbE server, storage and embedded communications interconnect provider and a key contributor to SDN and NFV forums," says Amir Prescher, senior vice president of business development at Mellanox Technologies. "By integrating solutions with Radware, we can provide mobile carriers with clear business benefits and unique value at the application-level through the integration with a NFV-based infrastructure."

Radware and Mellanox's offering to mobile carriers was designed to employ the virtues of both SDN and NFV, enabling easy adoption of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) server infrastructure serving both the network level and application level needs, respectively. Furthermore, it can also enable different mobile carrier and mobile cloud use-cases including elastic application delivery, mobile security, and more.
