Radware extends cyber defences for major African bank

Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, has announced that it has expanded its relationship with a leading African banking group, which is one of the 10 most valuable African banking brands.

As part of the new agreement, the customer added Radware’s Cloud Web Application Firewall (WAF) Service, Bot  Manager andEmergency Response Team Services to its existing Radware solutions. The customer also uses Radware’s DefensePro® DDoS Protection and hybrid Cloud DDoS Protection Service.

Today, the financial services institution provides banking services to millions of customers.

The customer wanted to detect more accurately and distinguish between legit customers, good bots and bad bots, as well as improve the mitigation of a growing array of automated attacks.

We were able to expand this customer relationship due to the technical strength and ease of use of our products, quick response times, seamless onboarding, and dashboard visibility.”
