A major supplier of colocation, connectivity, and managed services, DataBank, has formed a reseller agreement with Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), a global provider of cyber protection and application delivery solutions. In accordance with the contract, DataBank will make Radware’s Cloud DDoS Protection and Application Security solutions available to clients looking to strengthen their cyber defenses surrounding their data center assets.
The edge infrastructure platform of DataBank comprises of more than 65 data centers that are 50 miles or less from half of the population of the United States. Additionally, it has 20 significant interconnect hubs to provide workloads with unconstrained reach as well as modular data centers that may be deployed anywhere to meet geo-specific requirements.
To defend against the most adaptive and destructive DDoS attacks of the present, Radware’s Cloud DDoS Protection employs behavioral-based detection, automated signature development, and smart SSL attack mitigation.
“IT infrastructures are becoming more software-defined, user-managed, and edge-focused. They demand a data center experience that ensures data and applications are always secure, always compliant, and always on the right platforms in the right places,” said Mark Houpt, Chief Information Security Officer at DataBank. “Radware delivers scalable, top-grade security solutions that will further expand our menu of managed security services and offer our customers added levels of protection.”
DDoS and Application-Layer Attacks
Radware offers a cloud-based web application firewall (WAF), a bot management, API security, and application-layer DDoS protection services for application security. In order to give a greater degree of application security with fewer false positives, the protection is built on automated, machine-learning based algorithms that understand genuine user behavior. These algorithms then differentiate harmful from valid traffic.
“We are looking forward to partnering with DataBank to help organizations build modern, agile, IT environments,” said Bob Simpson, Vice President of North American Sales at Radware. “Our state-of-the-art, frictionless security solutions are designed to protect their customers against sophisticated DDoS and application-layer attacks while maintaining network uptime and access to critical infrastructure and applications.”
