Broadvoice Selects Radware's DefensePro to Protect its Voice Network

Broadvoice, a provider of VoIP for business and residential customers in the U.S. and Canada, recently opted for Radware's Attack Mitigation System, powered by DefensePro, a real-time, attack mitigation device to help protect its voice network from distributed denial of service attacks.


Understanding the level of harm a DDoS attack could cause on a telecommunications business, the Los Angeles based company now needed a security solution that could protect it against the threat of potential attacks.

It was only after evaluating several security solutions that Broadvoice zeroed on DefensePro for its high degree in detection and a low false-positive rate.

DefensePro is a core part of Radware's next generation AMS. It offers protection against DDoS attacks, Internet pipe saturation, attacks on login pages, SSL-based flood attacks as well as known and emerging network security threats.

Broadvoice deployed DefensePro inline between their edge and core routers which inspects all data coming from the Internet into their data center.

Officials said that Radware's AMS is a real-time network and application security solution that protects the application infrastructure from network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, information theft, Web service attacks and Web defacement.

Soon after launching a wide-scale and expensive marketing campaign, Broadvoice experienced several cyber-attacks against its network and Web infrastructure.

"We quickly switched on our mitigation and it immediately halted the attack, preserving the marketing investment of our campaign," says Ryan Delgrosso, chief technology officer of Broadvoice, in a press statement. "Without DefensePro alerting us that we were under attack and effectively mitigating it, our campaign would have fallen flat."

In May, TMCnet reported that UnionPay, a premier bankcard association headquartered in Shanghai, selected Radware's FastView to cut page load time for its website up to 65 percent.
