MAHWAH, New Jersey, February 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Radware^® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and
application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today
announced the release of a new solution designed to address mobile carriers
and cloud providers' current and next-generation requirements by offering a
unique Application Provider Edge (Application-PE) and Attack Mitigation System
(AMS).

During Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, February 25-28, 2013,
Radware will unveil Application-PE which provides an application-level
demarcation point in the mobile control and data plane frameworks and offered
on Radware's new carrier grade, high capacity application delivery cloud
platform, the Alteon^® 6420. 

Designed to meet the challenges that carriers and mobile service/cloud
providers face with massive growth of Internet, over-the-top (OTT) video and
mobile data traffic, together with the increasing adoption of long term
evolution (LTE), Radware's new solution offers intelligent control over mobile
data and applications enhancing service optimization and customers' QoE, while
supporting integration with various mobile ecosystems including network
virtualization and cloud-based architectures such as Network Functions
Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN).

The new Alteon 6420 serves as an Application Provider Edge (Application-PE) to
provide an application level demarcation point in the mobile control and data
plane frameworks. It provides transparent traffic steering and control for
mobile web and applications based on payload, headers, AAA and other policy
enforcement interfaces (e.g, Gx) including header modification capabilities to
support various mobile use cases. Additional new capabilities include
optimized data delivery over radio access networks (RAN) and
monitoring/presaging tools such as application performance monitoring (APM).

"When determining the right solution for a mobile network, carriers not only
look for reliability but truly demand a scalable, cost-effective, and secure
solution that is able to keep up with their capacity growth," says David Aviv,
vice president of advanced services, Radware. "We strongly feel our new
network cloud platform offers the perfect balance to their needs while moving
into cloud based ecosystems," added Aviv. 

Highlights of the new solution include:

  oNetwork Cloud Platform - 80Gbps virtual platform which allows multi-ADC
    tenants (up to 28/96) for flexible configurations based on any logical
    partition with built-in 4x40GE ports for high mobile traffic loads.
    Utilizing Radware's vDirect^® automation and control API's, automated
    control over the Alteon 6420 platform virtual resources can be granted and
    synchronized with upcoming new cloud based architectures (NFV) aligning
    ADC and security resources with virtual compute and network environments.
    

  oApplication delivery control utilizing high-speed Layer 4-7 Proxy
    technology empowered with a policy rule engine for intelligent and
    optimized mobile data delivery - enables flexible decisions, user and
    policy awareness, and header modifications controlled by AppShape™++
    scripting interface for highly customized use-cases. Demonstrable
    performance superiority in all layer 4-7 metrics including support for SSL
    2K keys.

  oMobile Web/Applications Optimization for improved customers' QoE and
    optimized delivery over RAN- including transport layer (TCP) optimization
    (congestion based) adapted to the mobile RAN conditions and new tools for
    application performance monitoring (APM) for complete visibility enabling
    proactive decision making.

  oComprehensive attack mitigation and deep flow inspection (DFI) - with up
    to 40Gbps of security inspection, 25M PPS DDoS mitigation, and
    anomaly/real-time signature generation to ensure complete mobile security
    at the network perimeter, service perimeter by mitigating network DDoS,
    DNS, IMS, and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) attacks. These
    capabilities are utilized to provide improved visibility for mobile
    traffic (DFI) with exporting interface towards policy engines (PCRF).

In addition, the Alteon 6420 provides a comprehensive security attack
mitigation framework to protect mobile networks and data centers against
high-volumetric DDoS and server "low and slow" attacks. The new solution will
be available at the end of March 2013. For more information, please contact a
