Radware, a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centres, today announced the latest version of DefensePro® – a real-time, behavioural based attack mitigation device that protects enterprise infrastructures against emerging cyber attacks. The latest release underscores Radware's commitment to delivering a holistic network security architecture through its Attack Mitigation Network (AMN).

Today's security landscape presents clear challenges for network security specialists – including increasingly complex DDoS attacks, the gradual disappearance of the network perimeter as well as attack vulnerabilities in data centre virtualisation technologies. To address these key challenges, Radware's DefensePro 7.35 offers enterprises enhanced flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness of deployment while providing fast and accurate mitigation of attacks targeting application infrastructure in real time. These enhanced capabilities, as part of Radware's AMN architecture, directly address the evolving and unpredictable nature of cyber attacks, providing full DDoS attack coverage for the network.

"Enterprises and service providers need to be able to detect threats earlier in the attack cycle. Given the challenges posed by distributed detection, they often discover these threats too late for effective remediation, said Christian Christiansen, Program Vice President, Security Products and Services, IDC. "Mitigation of such 'in- band' and 'out-of-band' threats should not require extraordinary efforts to accomplish. An integrated security solution with synchronised attack information – coupled with automated selection of best protection location and tool – can help organisations detect threats when they should and mitigate threats where they should."

Radware customers gain the following key benefits from the latest version of DefensePro:

Complete flexibility to use Defense Pro as detection and mitigation elements of AMN through inline, out of path, or in a scrubbing centre deployment
Scalable scrubbing centre deployment, enabling to match mitigation capacity effectively to actual needs which results in extreme cost savings
High mitigation accuracy and short time to mitigate attacks due to AMN Defense Messaging™ which ensures all DefensePro mitigation systems are ready with normal traffic behavioural information as well as attack characteristics for immediate mitigation

"We believe that our latest DefensePro release provides a more complete level of network protection to our customers," said Alon Lelcuk, vice president of security solutions, Radware.

"The entire network is protected across all enterprise resources as AMN automates the mitigation by selecting the most effective tools and locations – in the data centre, at the perimeter or in the cloud. With version 7.35, network administrators can also scale their mitigation and enjoy additional flexibility in how they architect their mitigation layers. They won't have to compromise accuracy of protection and still enjoy the fastest time to protect, as if it were an inline system."

Radware's AMN is a new holistic security architecture designed to address emerging security challenges. AMN is the first attack protection solution to combine existing and emerging detection technologies such as traditional anomaly detection tools and future attack detection technologies such as SDN based security applications into a centralised monitoring and control system that works in sync for increased visibility and security across the Enterprise. The result is a robust solution that enables scalability without losing mitigation accuracy to better fight complex attack campaigns by pushing mitigation away from the data centre, while still allowing business continuity during an attack.
