New DDoS solution from Lightpath to be powered by Radware technology

Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, today announced it signed a managed security service provider (MSSP) agreement with Lightpath, an all-fiber, infrastructure-based

connectivity provider. Based on the agreement, Lightpath is leveraging Radware’s AI-powered DefensePro® DDoS Protection to offer customers a DDoS scrubbing service designed to combat today’s increasingly complex threats.

“Radware takes a proactive approach to security. This applies not only to the patented

algorithms they use to automatically detect and mitigate threats, but also to the way they’ve partnered with us in launching an innovative new network security service,” said Bill Cheslock, director of emerging products at Lightpath. “Together with Radware, we are committed to providing our customers with a DDoS scrubbing service that delivers secure, reliable, and future-ready connectivity.”

Radware’s DefensePro® DDoS Protection automatically identifies and surgically blocks harmful traffic without disrupting legitimate traffic. Using advanced behavioral algorithms, the solution is designed to instantly adapt DDoS defenses based on the specific attacker. It not only neutralizes DDoS attacks but also safeguards the network, optimizes application performance, and ensures uninterrupted availability during attacks.

“Infrastructure transformation, new technologies, and the race for better customer experiences are placing growing cybersecurity demands on service providers at a time when the world is becoming increasingly insecure,” said John Eisenbarger, vice president for U.S. carriers and service providers at Radware. “Our focus is on helping providers streamline the go-to-market process by extending an industry-leading portfolio of managed network and application security services to their customers. We look forward to joining forces with Lightpath as the demand for high speed, low latency DDoS defenses rises.”

Radware’s network and application security solutions are built on AI-powered algorithms to protect legitimate user experiences while minimising false positives and the need for human intervention. The company has received numerous awards for its security solutions. Industry analysts such as Aite-Novarica Group, Forrester Research, Gartner, GigaOm, KuppingerCole, and

Quadrant Knowledge Solutions continue to recognise Radware as a market leader in cyber security.
