MAHWAH, New Jersey, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Radware^® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and
application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today
announced a collaborative effort with Mellanox^® Technologies.

Combining its Application Delivery and Attack Mitigation Security solutions
with Mellanox Technologies' 10G and 40G NICs, illustrates an innovative
ability to extract network and application information that can be translated
and leveraged to a scalable solution for detection of various security
threats, in real-time.

This unique solution not only permits a more resilient mobile network while
enabling the Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) initiative, but it also
allows a cost-effective, better-utilized mobile operation by eliminating high
CPU overhead and performance hit associated with vSwitches. In addition
embedded switching and SR-IOV technology results in accelerated performance
and improved security, isolation, and scalability.

By using an OpenFlow interface to manage the embedded virtual switch,
operators can now monitor and control traffic in real time, and through a
standard control interface. Enabling to deploy end to end Software Defined
Networking (SDN) solutions, the unique solution provides mobile carriers with
highly secured, resilient mobile service operation and cost-effective mobile
cloud services.

"Our ADC and Security are field-proven products that are already deployed in
various virtualization environments. By integrating Mellanox's
industry-leading and high-bandwidth solution offers mobile carriers to drive
their NFV and SDN initiatives," says Avi Chesla, chief technology officer,
Radware.

"Mellanox is a leading 10/40GbE server, storage and embedded communications
interconnect provider and a key contributor to SDN and NFV forums," says Amir
Prescher, senior vice president of business development at Mellanox
Technologies. "By integrating solutions with Radware, we can provide mobile
carriers with clear business benefits and unique value at the
application-level through the integration with a NFV-based infrastructure."

Radware and Mellanox's offering to mobile carriers was designed to employ the
virtues of both SDN and NFV, enabling easy adoption of commercial
off-the-shelf (COTS) server infrastructure serving both the network level and
application level needs, respectively. Furthermore, it can also enable
different mobile carrier and mobile cloud use-cases including elastic
application delivery, mobile security, and more.
