Radware®, a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, today announced that Ukraine’s State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection (SSSCIP) is using Radware’s Cloud DDoS Protection and Cloud Web Application Firewall (WAF) Services as pro-bono technical assistance to increase its cyber defenses in the face of aggressive and persistent cyber attacks.
Ukraine’s SSSCIP is tasked with protecting state information resources.
In parallel with Russia’s physical invasion of Ukraine, the world was exposed to modern warfare. As Russian troops entered Ukraine, regional DDoS and application attacks followed, targeting Ukraine’s communications systems, web applications, and other infrastructures.
With nation-state threat actors and other hackers launching volumetric attacks across multiple and emerging DDoS and web attack vectors, Ukraine’s SSSCIP team chose Radware for a comprehensive threat detection and mitigation solution to protect a number of critical governmental web-services.
“It’s our top priority to protect the IT infrastructure in Ukraine,” said Victor Zhora, the deputy chief of Ukraine’s SSSCIP. “Radware has helped us shield our networks, protect our applications, and bolster the resilience of our IT infrastructure.”
“With cyber playing a bigger role in international conflicts, the internet has become its own battle ground,” said Yoav Gazelle, Radware’s chief business officer. “Designed to ready organizations against emerging threats, our real-time mitigation solutions and emergency response teams work 24X7 to detect and automatically block the most sophisticated attacks, including zero-day and unknown DDoS attacks.”
