Radware launches next-gen cloud application security centre

Radware® has introduced a next-generation cloud application security centre as part of its cloud security service growth initiative, which is focused on innovation and scalability.

The new security centre, in Tel Aviv, Israel, home to the company’s headquarters, complements the company’s existing cloud DDoS scrubbing centre, also in Israel.

The addition of the new centre follows the recent rollout of facilities in Australia, Canada, Chile, Italy, New Zealand, Taiwan, and the United Arab Emirates. The facilities are part of Radware’s worldwide cloud security service network, which includes more than 50 security centres and delivers an attack mitigation capacity of 12Tbps.

The centres are designed to reduce traffic latency as well as increase service redundancy and mitigation capacity to help customers defend against denial-of-service attacks, web application attacks, malicious bot traffic, and attacks on APIs. They also help increase resiliency and comply with offshore data routing requirements.

“Radware’s security centres deliver a global footprint, network and application security, true multi-tenant service, as well as high resiliency,” said Zion Zvi, CEO at Trustnet, a leading integration and consulting company in the field of information and cyber security. “Radware’s latest cloud expansion offers a great service to Israeli organizations in need of rapid response times and scalable protection.”

The Israeli cloud application security centre supports Radware’s 360-degree Cloud Application Protection Service, which spans from the browser side to the server side. The best-of-suite offering includes the company’s cloud-based web application firewall, bot manager, API protection, application-layer DDoS protection, and its recently released client-side protection.

To deliver a higher level of application security with lower false positives, the security is based on automated, machine-learning based algorithms that learn legitimate user behavior and then separate malicious and legitimate traffic. Dozens of Israeli customers rely on Radware’s cloud security services.

According to Radware’s 2022 Global Threat Analysis Report, the number of DDoS attacks rose by 150% compared to 2021. Web application and API attacks increased 128% year over year, significantly out pacing the 88% increase in attacks between 2020 and 2021.

“Fuelled by the increasing frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks and strong business demand, we continue to expand our global cloud security footprint across major geographies,” said Haim Zelikovsky, vice president of cloud security services for Radware.

“The cloud security centres combine state-of-the-art protection and ultra-high bandwidth performance to defend against the most harmful network and application attacks.”

Industry analysts such as Forrester Research, Gartner, GigaOm, KuppingerCole and Quadrant Knowledge Solutions continue to recognise Radware as a market leader in cyber security. The company has received numerous awards for its application and API protection, web application firewall, bot management, and DDoS mitigation solutions.
