Radware, a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions ensuring optimal service levels for applications in virtual, cloud, and software-defined data centres, today introduced an all new Operator Toolbox software to automate application delivery and security solution management. It is able to slash the time spent on these tasks by more than 90% compared to manual processes while increasing agility and reining in operational expenses.

The race to improve the end-user experience has made application delivery and security more crucial to the success of a business, but also much more complex and difficult to manage. Many organisations either lack the IT expertise or the resources to monitor and maintain their application delivery and security services efficiently. The many manual tasks that make up ADC, WAF and DDoS management, from reviewing SSL certificates to updating security policies across the organisation, consume resources and tie up talent that could be directed toward more strategic initiatives.

Operator Toolbox software includes many features that help organisations speed up their application delivery and security management processes as well as encourage fast adoption of advanced or new device functionality. The ability to professionally package complete service blocks into a single simple script (instead of configuring feature by feature) which provision multiple devices, enables any IT operator to provision a secured application delivery service involving Alteon, DefensePro and AppWall devices. Using one single simple script, Operator Toolbox eliminates the need to be an application delivery or a security expert.

Operator Toolbox also has the ability to manage the script library per type of script, (e.g., provisioning and maintenance) per user role and/or per domain so that anyone has access to the script they need and know.

“As organisations work to enhance and protect business applications through application delivery and security solutions, they’re faced with complex technologies to provision and maintain as well as pressure to increase agility and accelerate application deployment, maintenance, and decommissioning,” said Sharon Trachtman, Chief Marketing Officer at Radware. “Operator Toolbox helps Radware customers reduce expenses, put time back on their calendars, and better leverage their teams’ talent and expertise.”

Operator Toolbox offers:

Automation of the entire lifecycle of ADC and security services using simple wizards and scripts for provisioning, maintenance, and monitoring.
Out-of-the-box scripts automating common ADC and security lifecycle management tasks
Personalised management process automation that converts existing services configurations into Operator Toolbox wizards with an intuitive GUI and creates toolbars of commonly used scripts
Quick learning curve for mastering advance service provisioning and new devices

“Operator Toolbox provides a great opportunity for Radware’s partners to increase the value they offer their customers and earn additional revenue through professional services that personalise the automation of management processes for them,” said Israel Greenspan, Director of Channel Marketing for Radware.
