Radware protects leading bank against emerging threat vectors


Radware, a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, has signed an agreement with a leading European financial institution.

Ranking among its country’s five largest banks in terms of total assets, the organisation purchased Radware’s complete suite of network and application security and application delivery solutions.

Today, the bank, which has offices in more than 50 countries and thousands of employees, delivers a comprehensive set of financial services to private, corporate, and institutional clients.

The bank decided to replace its existing security solutions provider to strengthen its protection against emerging threat vectors and enhance data availability and accessibility.

In addition, the bank wanted to consolidate its security services under one vendor umbrella, including a web application firewall, API and DDoS protection, and bot detection and management. The company turned to Radware for its integrated, end-to-end solution.

“We are proud to be awarded the business and trust of prominent banks from around the world. It is a testament to Radware’s technology, service superiority, and spirit of partnership,” said Yoav Gazelle, Radware’s chief business officer.

“Regardless of geography, companies are experiencing an alarming escalation in the sophistication of cyber attacks, making them even more difficult to detect and mitigate. They rely on Radware for real-time, 360-degree protection that consistently and automatically adapts to threats as they evolve and emerge across environments and entry points.”

Radware’s integrated end-to-end network and application security solutions harness machine learning and powerful patented behavioural-based algorithms to automatically identify and adapt to changes in the threat landscape, applications and infrastructure.

Its broad footprint makes it an ideal solution for organisations interested in consolidating security platforms to enhance visibility and make maintenance easier and more cost effective.

To uplevel the cyber defenses across its hybrid environment, the bank selected Radware’s DefensePro® X DDoS Protection platform and Cloud DDoS Protection Service, as well as its Alteon® integrated application protection suite, Alteon Global Elastic License (GEL), and 24X7 Emergency Response Team (ERT) managed services.

Radware’s Alteon suite offers comprehensive application protection via embedded web application firewall, bot management and API protection capabilities. It defends against a wide range of threats, including OWASP vulnerabilities, bad bots, zero-day and supply chain attacks, and API assaults.

Accompanied by Radware’s GEL, companies can allocate their application security services across any private or public cloud environment at a moment’s notice without jeopardizing their initial investment.

Using advanced behavioral algorithms, Radware’s combined DDoS defence is designed to detect and block harmful traffic, ensure uninterrupted availability, and protect networks from today’s most damaging threats. This includes Burst, DNS, and network and application DDoS attacks along with ransom DDoS campaigns, IoT botnets, phantom floods, and other types of cyber threat.

Radware has received numerous awards for its application and network security solutions.
