Radware (News - Alert) will provide its Attack Mitigation System (AMS) to safeguard against emerging network security threats for a national mobile communications carrier in the United States.
“We are pleased to continue a strong relationship with our customer and value the trust they’ve placed with Radware,” said Mark McIlvane, vice president, Carrier Sales, North America, Radware.
“Today’s threats have increased and constantly test the vulnerability of a network. However, we are confident that our customer will be able to maintain their IT infrastructure as our Attack Mitigation System contains a multi-layered approach in order to combat these attacks and ensure network availability,” McIlvane added.
A provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, Radware will help the customer secure Internet access and mitigate DoS based attacks on internal customer-facing networks in multiple locations.
The customer picked the Radware AMS solution because it can support both behavioral-based and signature-based protections with its Network Behavioral Analysis (NBA) module. The Radware solution uses a patented behavioral-based real-time signature technology that creates baselines of normal network, application and user behavior.
In case an anomaly is detected in network behavior, the NBA module creates a real-time signature instantly according to the attack characteristics and blocks the attack without any form of human intervention. Also, legitimate user traffic is undisturbed.
If a DDoS attack occurs, the Radware solution injects the real-time signature into the DME hardware offloading the main CPUs from the excessive unwanted traffic, explained officials.
Besides the NBA, the Radware AMS also features the Intrusion (News - Alert) Prevention System (IPS) which is a module based on tasteful static signature detection technology. It delivers periodic signature updates and emergency updates when new high risk attacks are detected. Also the Denial-of-Service (DoS) Protection and Reputation Engine will help protect networks optimally against all network security threats.
Radware also announced that it has collaborated with virtualization software company VMware, to integrate Radware Alteon VA with VMware vFabric Application Director, VMware’s application provisioning solution.
