Radware Competes in ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards (Video)

Organizations are challenged by an evolving threat landscape that reduces revenues, increases expenses and damages reputations.

Today’s cyber-attackers use sophisticated methods ― often multiple attack-vectors in the same attack campaign ― to bring down data centers and organizations’ web presence.

The simplicity of launching such cyber-attacks and variety of attack tools available are reasons why more organizations are suffering from increased attacks, such as DDoS.

Today’s standard defense technologies including DDoS protection, IPS, anomaly & behavioral analysis, SSL protection and web application firewalls (WAFs) are often provided in point solutions.

These systems are almost never integrated and require dedicated resources consisting of IT managers and security experts to maintain and synchronize.

Radware’s hybrid attack mitigation solution combines the requisite technologies for making businesses resilient to cyber-attacks with on-premise systems and the ability to scale on demand with a cloud based scrubbing service.

By protecting enterprises against known and emerging network and application threats in real-time, Radware’s layered approach is designed to help organizations mitigate attacks that can be detected and offer a security solution that combines detection and mitigation tools from a single vendor.

Radware’s solution provides maximum coverage, accurate detection and shortest time to protection.

Radware’s attack mitigation solution offers a multi-vector attack detection and mitigation solution, handling network layer and server based attacks, malware propagation and intrusion activities.

Complete with anti-DoS, network behavioral analysis, SSL defense, IPS, WAF and in-the-cloud DoS mitigation in one integrated system, the solution is supported on dedicated hardware designed to fight multiple attack vectors simultaneously.

To mitigate network attacks that threaten to saturate the Internet pipe, Radware’s attack mitigation solution includes Radware’s Hybrid Cloud DDoS Protection Service that works in sync with on premise attack mitigation devices.

Enhanced with a central monitoring and reporting system, the solution provides on-going unified situational awareness of the network and applications using a single security event information management (SEIM) engine for all components.

Always-On DDoS Attack Prevention, Protection and Web Application Security

During long lasting attack campaigns where the system cannot mitigate all attack vectors out of the box – Radware provides the support of its Emergency Response Team – a team of security experts that provide 24×7 real-time security service to help customers restore operational status under attack.

Radware’s on-premise attack mitigation device ensures the datacenter is constantly protected by providing accurate real-time detection and mitigation of multi-vector DDoS attacks which is not possible using only a cloud-based DDoS solution.

Only in cases of volumetric attacks, where the organization’s Internet pipe is about to saturate, is traffic diverted to Radware’s cloud-based scrubbing center where attack traffic is cleared before it reaches the company’s Internet pipe.

This enables a smooth transition between mitigation options assuring immediate protection with no disruption gaps and without adding the scrubbing center latency.

Only 15% of DDoS attacks handled by Radware’s ERT saturated the Internet pipe.

What’s Included in Radware’s Security Solutions?

Hybrid DDoS Attack Prevention & Protection

Integrating Radware’s on-premise, real-time DDoS protection solution, DefensePro, with Radware’s Hybrid Cloud DDoS Attack Prevention and Protection Service for volumetric attack protection.

Minimal-Latency SSL Attack Mitigation Solution

A patent-protected mitigation solution supports all common versions of SSL and TLS and protects from all types of encrypted attacks – including TCP SYN Floods, SSL Negotiation Floods, HTTPS Floods and Encrypted Web Attacks.

Unmatched Web Application Security

Through Radware’s Web Application Firewall, AppWall, or Radware’s Cloud WAF Service – offering full web security protection including OWASP Top-10 coverage, advanced web attack protection and 0-day web attack protection.

Full Suite of Cloud Security Services

Full range of cloud WAF and DDoS protection solutions that can provide organizations optimal cloud protection services to meet the unique needs of their networks and applications.


Centralized Management & Reporting

Providing a single pane of glass to manage and monitor all security components in a collaborative and consistent way.


Battle-proven Emergency Response Team

24×7 security expert support for hands-on attack mitigation assistance during prolonged, multi-vector attacks.


These hybrid protection capabilities ensure that traffic is not diverted unless it is absolutely necessary.

As a result, the organization is fully protected and time to mitigation is measured in seconds.

Radware’s attack mitigation solution includes active monitoring and health checks on the protected service or application.

In addition, the system performs pipe saturation monitoring and customers are notified when there is a risk for saturation and action is required.

Radware’s mission is to ensure application service levels are guaranteed at all times, in any operational scenario.

Ongoing reports regarding all attacks that were mitigated by the system (automatically mitigated or invoked) are available for viewing on a web-based service portal.

When Radware’s ERT is involved in mitigating an attack, a full post attack analysis report is provided to the customer.

Radware’s solution includes 24×7 ERT support for hands-on attack mitigation assistance from a single point of contact.

The ERT provides expertise needed during prolonged, multi-vector attacks.

This includes working closely with customers to decide on the diversion of traffic during volumetric attacks, assisting with capturing files, analyzing the situation and ensuring the best mitigation options are implemented.

The ERT’s experience with fighting the most widely known attacks in the industry provides best practice approaches to fight each and every attack.

Radware’s web application firewall (WAF) provides complete protection against: web application attacks, web application attacks behind CDNs, advanced HTTP attacks (slowloris, dynamic floods), brute force attacks on login pages and more.

A messaging mechanism enables Radware’s WAF to signal Radware’s perimeter attack mitigation device when a web application attack is detected and needs to be blocked at the perimeter, protecting the rest of the network.

As organizations migrate applications to the cloud, Radware offers a cloud-based WAF service. Radware’s Hybrid Cloud WAF offering provides a fully managed enterprise grade WAF that protects both on-premise and cloud-based applications, using a single technology solution.

Radware’s SSL mitigation solution is unique in the industry.

radware logoIt mitigates SSL encrypted flood attacks at the network perimeter.

The solution mitigates SSL-based attacks using challenge-response mitigation techniques and SSL decryption and challenge response mechanisms are enforced only on suspicious traffic.

The result is the lowest latency SSL mitigation solution in the industry, as legitimate traffic is not affected by the mitigation efforts.
