Radware, a premier provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, recently announced that two U.S.-based social networks have selected Radware's (News - Alert) award winning Attack Mitigation System (AMS) security solution. The solution will help both companies protect their network infrastructures from potential cyber threats.
Attack Mitigation System (AMS) is a real-time network and application attack mitigation solution that protects the application infrastructure against network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, information theft, Web service attacks and Web defacement.
According to officials from Radware, Attack Mitigation System (AMS) security solution was tested stringently by the companies before its selection. AMS was also compared with other solutions on the parameters of performance, attack detection within SSL sessions and mitigation capabilities. AMS stood tall, however, on all the parameters to become the ultimate choice for both businesses.
"Data center and network security managers must maneuver through an increasingly difficult and always changing threat landscape; and only Radware's Attack Mitigation System has the proven ability to defend against the new generation of sophisticated, multi-level cyber attacks," said Carl Herberger, vice president, Security, Radware. "What's more, the combination of Radware's AMS technology and the expertise of Radware's ERT consultants provide probably the most effective cyber security services available today."
AMS includes award winning DefensePro and AppWall components that offer a set of security modules: Denial-of-service (DoS) protection, Network Behavioral Analysis (NBA), Intrusion (News - Alert) Prevention System (IPS), Reputation Engine and Web Application Firewall (WAF) – to fully safeguard networks, servers and applications against known and emerging network security threats.
Radware recently announced it has joined the Open Networking Foundation (ONF), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting a new approach to networking called Software-Defined Networking. As an ONF member, Radware will contribute its views and expertise in several important areas.
