Radware Delivers Advanced DDoS Protection

Radware Delivers State-of-the-Art DDoS Protection for a Leading SaaS Provider of Global Communication Services

Multimillion-dollar deal includes protection of high-bandwidth network against phantom flood attacks

Radware announced it is delivering state-of-the-art DDoS protection for a leading SaaS provider of global cloud-based communications services. To increase protection around its hybrid computing environment and ensure optimal delivery of its services and application traffic, the industry leader purchased Radware’s DefensePro DDoS Protection solution as part of a multimillion-dollar deal.

The SaaS company was looking for a DDoS solution that could provide dynamic and granular protection from hidden micro floods across a large-scale, high-bandwidth network with enormous user and traffic requirements. In addition, the company was searching for a low-latency solution with flexible deployment options to address the requirements of its hybrid architecture.

According to Radware’s recent Global Threat Analysis Report, the number of micro floods increased by 79% between 2020 and 2021. Micro floods, or low throughput attack vectors, have throughputs between 10Mbps to 1Gbps and are typically much harder to detect using traditional algorithms based on thresholds.

“Malicious actors are constantly seeking new ways to disrupt the flow of network traffic, undermine the user experience, jeopardize revenue, and damage brands,” said Yoav Gazelle, Radware’s chief business officer. “We won the business of this global communications leader following an in-depth proof-of-concept process, where we demonstrated state-of-the-art mitigation capabilities. We structured a fully redundant and scalable architecture that will enable the organization to grow significantly over time while protecting its security investment.”

Radware was recognized as a global leader in Forrester’s report, The Forrester Wave™: DDoS Mitigation Solutions, Q1 2021. The company was also named the market leader for the second consecutive year in Quadrant Knowlege Solutions’ 2022 SPARK Matrix for DDOS Mitigation.

Radware’s DefensePro patented, behavior-based detection technology provides automated DDoS protection from fast-moving, high-volume, encrypted or very short duration threats. It defends against Burst, DNS, and TLS/SSL attacks as well as ransom DDoS campaigns, Internet-of-Things botnets, phantom floods, and other types of cyber threats. To match a broad range of customer needs, DefensePro supports multiple deployment options, including cloud-based, hardware-based, and hybrid solutions.
