MAHWAH, New Jersey, February 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Radware^® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and
application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today
announces the introduction of DefensePipe^™, an integrated and comprehensive
solution to help mitigate volumetric DDoS attacks which threaten to saturate a
customer's Internet pipe, or the 'outside line' that connects enterprises to
the web.

DefensePipe is an innovative market solution for end to end attack mitigation
on-premise and in the cloud. Available to Radware customers that currently
deploy an on-premise Attack Mitigation System (AMS), it is a scalable solution
that automatically engages once the customer's AMS detects that pipe
saturation is imminent.

The sharing of behavioral base line data between the on-premise AMS and
DefensePipe, that includes a real-time signature created by the AMS, enables
DefensePipe to start mitigation in the cloud much faster and with greater
accuracy.

The organization's suspicious Internet traffic is immediately diverted to the
DefensePipe cloud based scrubbing center where it is distanced further from
the protected network and its scalable resources can mitigate high volume
attacks. Once the traffic is "cleaned" it is then sent to the organization and
regular operations continue once the attack has ceased.

"To effectively diminish availability-based threats, you must take a holistic
approach on both detection and mitigation," says Avi Chesla, chief technology
officer, Radware. "Today's security challenges, including multi-vulnerability
attack campaigns, are better addressed when detection and mitigation resources
appropriately match the threat type and attack target in any given time."

"We've essentially extended the strength of our AMS to the cloud with this
robust end to end solution that provides greater flexibility to protect
against any type and size of threat - all under the hood of the same attack
mitigation system," added Chesla.

Also included is access to Radware's Emergency Response Team (ERT), a 'round
the clock' staff of security experts who are knowledgeable and experienced
with emerging cyber threats, their detection and mitigation. Whether the
attack needs to be mitigated on-premise or in the Cloud, Radware's Emergency
Response Team mitigates the attack with the customer during the entire attack
campaign. Customers will not need to work with multiple vendors or services
during an attack and can benefit from the peace of mind of having a single
contact point during an attack.

"Radware's DefensePipe was a natural fit, as we're very pleased with their
attack mitigation system and its unmatched capability," says Robert Proulx,
Eng. president and founder of Xittel Télécommunications.

"The combination of an on-premise AMS and DefensePipe in the cloud provides us
with maximum security coverage and the ideal solution to ensure the
availability of our customers' business. Furthermore, it allows us to maintain
our high SLA with our hosted customers, providing a much greater value for
them," added Proulx.

Additional features of Radware's DefensePipe cloud based mitigation solution
include:

  oWidest security coverage compared to any other vendor. The integration of
    on-premise AMS and DefensePipe provides wide coverage of attacks that
    cannot be detected and protected by other solutions that are deployed only
    in the cloud or only on-premise. Attack coverage includes SSL based
    attacks, application layer attacks, low & slow, network floods, known
    vulnerabilities and egress traffic attacks.

  oShortest response time by employing an on-premise AMS that starts
    immediately and automatically to mitigate the attack. There is no need to
    wait for human intervention or to divert the traffic to a remote data
    center in order to start mitigation.

  oIntegrated reporting system provides information both from the on-premise
    mitigation and in the cloud mitigation. This enablescustomers to perform
    more efficient forensics, better understand the threats they are facing
    and to better plan their mitigation strategy for future threats.
