“Radware has demonstrated that we have the application delivery and cloud security that carriers require to protect complex cloud environments and meet high traffic load expectations,” said Jerry Nichols, vice president of carrier sales at Radware.

As this carrier continues to progress its worldwide cloud infrastructure, it desired greater flexibility and control in transferring its applications, as well as increased availability and protection from DDoS attacks. Following extensive comparative research, the carrier decided to increase its investment in Radware’s DefensePro DDoS Protection system with Alteon Application Delivery Controllers (ADC). Exactly which carrier it is has not been disclosed by Radware.

“Our state-of-the-art technology continues to win us more business from the world’s leading carriers as they build out new cloud-based data centers, and 5G and next-generation networks,” said Jerry Nichols, vice president of carrier sales at Radware. “In head-to-head competitions, Radware has demonstrated that we have the application delivery and cloud security that carriers require to protect complex cloud environments and meet high traffic load expectations.”

Network Load Balancer

The next-generation Alteon ADC from Radware is a sophisticated network load balancer that guarantees application service-level agreements. It would enable powerful, end-to-end local and global load balancing for online, cloud, and mobile applications. A single Global Elastic Licensing subscription would enable Alteon to effortlessly extend application delivery and security services across any private data center, as well as public and private cloud, to save operating expenses.

DefensePro, a component of Radware’s attack mitigation system, provides automatic DDoS defense and protection against fast-moving, high-volume, encrypted, or very-short-duration assaults. It protects against IoT-based, Burst, DNS, and TLS/SSL atacks, DDoS campaigns for ransom, IoT botnets, phantom floods, and other sorts of cyberattacks.
