Radware, a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centres, announces today that it will now be able to offer Cisco customers the widest attack mitigation coverage on the market by integrating its Alteon® and DefensePro® solutions with Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)*.

The new arrangement meets the daily pressure that CIO’s are under to protect their network. Radware’s ‘Global Applications and Security Report 2014’** showed that a fifth of companies are under constant attack, three times as many as last year, with half of companies stating that they can only fight attacks around-the-clock for a day at most. Half (48%) of the security professionals surveyed said that they intend to move to hybrid on premise protection so they can fight back on multiple levels.

Integrating Radware’s platform with Cisco’s ACI fabric will provide enterprises large and small, hosting service providers and ISPs with a fully automated application delivery and security service. Customers will benefit from a single control point from which to provision, automate and monitor applications in the data centre, and the assurance that the right defences are deployed as soon as cyber attacks are detected.

Radware’s Attack Mitigation Service (AMS) will automatically detect all types of attack that threaten network availability, and working in real-time will check the policies set-up in the Cisco ACI to remove attack traffic without blocking legitimate network requests.

“With Cisco ACI, the agility of the datacenter is greatly increased without compromising application SLAs and performance,” says Soni Jiandani, SVP, Marketing, Cisco. “Applications can move, scale-up or scale-out while retaining the associated services without any location specific constraints. Together with Radware attack mitigation security, our joint customers can now deploy a very secure micro-segmented data center.”

David Aviv, vice president of advanced services for Radware, said: “Radware with Cisco ACI delivers a true application aware network. Together, we can provide simplified automation so applications can be deployed faster and more efficiently with scalable application service intelligence and integrated service security.”

Adrian Crawley, regional director for Radware UK and Ireland, added that the agreement presents a significant opportunity for the channel: “It’s well known that managed services is a key growth area for the channel. This agreement gives the channel a strong message of ‘detect where you can, mitigate where you should’, to take to market. I’m confident it will open up new services opportunities for the channel partner that wants to increase its business margin and expand its portfolio.”
