MAHWAH, New Jersey, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Radware^®, (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and
security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announces the
introduction of DefenseFlow^[^TM^], the first in the company's suite of
Software Defined Networking (SDN) applications providing organizations with
superior network wide attack mitigation service.

Radware SDN strategy unveiled today provides a comprehensive SDN framework,
outlining support for three key dimensions: SDN applications - building SDN
applications that optimize ADC and security services by programming the
network; SDN eco-system - compatibility with the industry's leading SDN
vendors; related SDN technology support - extending application programming
interfaces (APIs) and supporting network protocols such as VX-LAN.

Radware's strategy emphasizes SDN as an enabling architecture to revolutionize
the way application delivery and security services are implemented and
managed. Using Radware's SDN applications, application delivery and security
move from a point devices based deployment to comprehensive network-wide
services.

Radware's SDN applications use the programmability nature of software defined
networks to become part of the service rather than just hosting it. The
overall solution provides customers with simpler implementations of the ADC
and security services that become highly scalable and easier to operate.

The SDN eco-system is a critical focus as it will enable Radware's security
and application delivery solutions to integrate into the environments of the
industry's leading SDN vendors through extensive joint design, development and
certification.

"While SDN has received a lot of attention recently, enterprise and carriers
are challenged to actually leverage the benefits of this new network
evolution," said Avi Chesla, chief technology officer, Radware. "Our approach
is to provide a set of fully-functional SDN applications that empower our
customers to build application aware networks which dramatically increase
their value. DefenseFlow^[^TM^] is the first in a line of SDN applications
we'll be introducing this year that harness the power and cost savings of
SDN."

DefenseFlow^[^TM^], Radware's first commercial SDN application, enables
network operators to program the network and provide automated DoS & DDoS
detection and protection as a native network service.

DefenseFlow^[^TM^] transitions in path device-based security solutions into a
network-wide service by utilizing the SDN control plane to collect traffic
information for attack detection and optimally divert the traffic through the
most relevant security resources in the network that can mitigate the
identified risk only when needed.

By deploying this behavioral-based technology to detect network attacks in
real time, network operators and IT staff can implement DoS & DDoS protection
service to their networks at a low cost.

Additional benefits of Radware's SDN product suite include:

  oMore intelligent application delivery and security decisions: Using
    Radware SDN applications, application intelligence is injected to every
    point in the network. A proactive application cycle brings constant
    optimization of availability, performance and security through the
    analysis decision process.
  oSimpler implementations: Customers can quickly and easily implement the
    deployment of ADC and security compared to traditional methods which
    requires assurance of the right static traffic engineering.
  oLower solution costs: Users can off-load basic functions of ADC and
    security services to the network, thus saving expensive resources.
  oHigher scalability: Through SDN, ADC and security appliances can be used
    anywhere on the network, enabling simpler scalability.  
  oEasier operation: Radware's SDN solutions allow for centralized
    management, streamlining the management of both ADC and security
    processes.

Radware SDN based solutions can also be valuable to customers throughout the
SDN adoption curve. Solutions are applicable to legacy networks with SDN
elements/islands and to full SDN.
