A new cloud security center has opened in Taiwan, by Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), a worldwide provider of application delivery and cybersecurity solutions. Customers in Taiwan would be enabled to minimize compliance procedures associated with offshore routing and safeguard their datacenters, networks, online and mobile apps, and APIs thanks to the facility.
The new security center in Taiwan is the latest addition to Radware’s cloud security network. More than 50 security centers worldwide and over 10Tbps of mitigation capacity are now part of the network.
Customers will be protected by the new security center against attacks on APIs, online applications, malicious bot traffic, and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. This covers volumetric DDoS and application-level DDoS attacks, the OWASP Top 10 Web Application Security Risks for 2021, the OWASP Top 21 Automated Threats to Web Applications, and the OWASP Top 10 for API Security.
“As the size and speed of cyberattacks continue to rise, the launch of the new cloud security center in Taiwan enables us to deliver faster mitigation response times in the region along with the highest levels of security protection,” said Haim Zelikovsky, Vice President of Radware’s Cloud Security Services Business. “The center also meets a growing demand for local security that complies with data sovereignty requirements.”
Increase Regional Cyber Defenses
In the first half of 2022, according to Radware’s First Half 2022 Global Threat Analysis Report:
- In comparison to the first half of 2021, the quantity of malicious DDoS attacks increased by 203 percent.
- In comparison to 2021 and 2020, the average number of DDoS occurrences per month, per client, was over 1.5 times greater in the first half of 2022.
- In comparison to the first half of 2021, the number of harmful web application transactions increased by 38 percent, exceeding the entire number of malicious transactions noted in 2020.
“Radware continues to make investments in protecting businesses and governments alike from the growing threat of cyberattacks,” said Alan Lee, Regional Director for Radware in Taiwan and Hong Kong. “Taiwan is located within an influential hub in the Asia-Pacific region. Information security is regarded as a national security issue. Setting up a cloud security center in Taiwan will help improve information security standards and increase regional cyber defenses.”
