Radware Launches All-Inclusive Security Solution To Protect Data Centers & Networks From Hybrid Attacks

MAHWAH, N.J., June 1. Radware, a leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced an industry first - APSolute Attack Prevention - a unique security solution that connects several defenses together, allowing them to work synchronously - and provide network and data center infrastructures with comprehensive protection from hybrid network attacks that pose threats such as: application vulnerability, information theft, authentication defeat, malware spread, network anomalies, application downtime, network downtime, and more.

Recent attacks in 2009 and 2010 such as the July 2009 cyber attacks and Conficker malware show that attackers are using hybrid attack techniques that utilize multiple attack types and vectors. Today, organizations are deploying individual protection tools such as Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Network Behavioral Analysis (NBA) and Denial of Service (DoS) protection. But, the use of multiple individual tools, increase costs and complexity while leaving networks and services unprotected against hybrid attacks.

"We are witnessing through the widespread attacks on enterprises and governments a distinct change in the threat landscape. Cybercriminals and hackers are using attack vectors that employ not just one but multiple threat types and don't always exploit known vulnerabilities," stated Charles Kolodgy, research vice president for IDC's Security Products. "Our research also indicates that organizations are seeking to integrate a wide variety of security techniques to provide extensible security through a single vendor. Radware is addressing this critical network security requirement by offering a combination of advanced security protections in a single device. And, they're appropriately marrying it with essential monitoring, reporting, and management capabilities followed by expert services to provide customers with a complete package, thus addressing the fuller expanse of security needs necessitated by the changing threat landscape."

Designed for ecommerce, service providers and large enterprises, APSolute Attack Prevention is an all-inclusive attack mitigation solution, integrating different tools/modules, plus management and reporting, which need to work in a synchronized manner to best detect and prevent hybrid threats. The key elements of this solution include: DefensePro; an enhanced version of the award-winning network security solution; APSolute Vision(TM), a new unified management system providing monitoring, forensics and reporting; and is rounded out with a new Emergency Response Team (ERT) service, a security expert offering for immediate, hands-on assistance.

Radware's DefensePro uses multiple defense technologies and is the only solution available on the market today integrating IPS, NBA and DoS protection in a single appliance. DefensePro employs multiple detection and prevention engines including signature detection, protocol anomaly detection, stateful inspection and traffic anomaly detection. The secret sauce of DefensePro is patent protected behavioral based real-time signatures technology that detects and mitigates emerging network attacks in real time such as zero-minute attacks, DoS/DDoS attacks, application misuse attacks, network scanning and malware spread. All without the need for human intervention and without blocking legitimate user traffic:
