Radware®, (NASDAQ: RDWR) a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, today announced that it signed a multimillion-dollar deal expansion with a Tier-1 U.S. carrier. The industry leading carrier is increasing its Radware security defenses to further safeguard and manage application traffic across its growing global cloud infrastructure.
Infrastructure transformation, new technologies, and the race for better customer experiences have placed new cybersecurity demands on carriers at a time when they are facing unprecedented levels of threats. As this carrier continues to advance its global cloud infrastructure, it wanted to create added flexibility and control in migrating its applications, ensure availability, and further protect its cloud traffic from DDoS attacks. After a rigorous competitive testing process, the carrier chose to expand its investment in Radware’s DefensePro® DDoS Protection solution and Alteon® Application Delivery Controllers (ADC).
“Our state-of-the-art technology continues to win us more business from the world’s leading carriers as they build out new cloud-based data centers, and 5G and next-generation networks,” said Jerry Nichols, vice president of carrier sales at Radware. “In head-to-head competitions, Radware has demonstrated that we have the application delivery and cloud security that carriers require to protect complex cloud environments and meet high traffic load expectations.”
Radware’s next-generation Alteon ADC is an advanced network load balancer that guarantees application service-level agreements. It provides advanced, end-to-end local and global load balancing capabilities for web, cloud, and mobile applications. To reduce operational costs, a single Global Elastic Licensing subscription enables Alteon to seamlessly scale application delivery and security services across any private data center, or public and private cloud based on consumption changes.
Part of Radware’s attack mitigation solution, DefensePro provides automated DDoS defense and protection from fast-moving, high-volume, encrypted, or very-short-duration threats. It defends against IoT-based, Burst, DNS, and TLS/SSL attacks, ransom DDoS campaigns, IoT botnets, phantom floods, and other types of cyberattacks. Radware was recognized as a global leader in Forrester’s report, “The Forrester Wave™: DDoS Mitigation Solutions, Q1 2021.”
