Radware Introduces DefenseFlow(TM) Using Cisco eXtensible Network Controller
to Offer SDN DoS and DDoS Protection as a Native Network Service
Radware to Demonstrate Its Anti-DDoS as an SDN Network Service During Cisco
Live, in Orlando, Florida
ORLANDO, Fla., June 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware^® (Nasdaq:RDWR), a
leading provider of application delivery and security solutions for virtual
and cloud data centers announces it will introduce DefenseFlow™, a software
product that utilizes the Cisco eXtensible Network Controller (XNC) and
employs SDN technologies to provide DoS & DDoS protection as a native network
It will demonstrate this capability during Cisco Live, Cisco's annual IT and
communications conference in Orlando, Florida, June 23 – 27, 2013.
With the Cisco XNC, Radware composed a native SDN solution driven by
DefenseFlow™ SDN application to offer comprehensive and cost-effective
protection against emerging DDoS attack campaigns in Cisco SDN-enabled
DefenseFlow™ is an SDN application that programs SDN-enabled networks to
become part of the DDoS protection service itself, enabling operators to
assign a DoS protection service per virtual network segment or per customer.
It relies on the following components: Cisco XNC; Cisco switches and routers
that are onePK and OpenFlow enabled; and Radware's DefenseFlow™ anti-DoS SDN
application and DefensePro^® attack mitigation solution. The result is
complete abstraction of the Anti-DoS resource provisioning and alignment with
network operations to provision, manage and monitor DoS protection as a
service within the OpenFlow ecosystem.
"With Radware's DefenseFlow™, we can revolutionize the way security services
are implemented and managed," says Avi Chesla, chief technology officer,
Radware. "By using the programmability of SDN technologies to collect
statistics, analyze the information and control the infrastructure layer to
proactively defend against DoS & DDoS network flood attacks, we transform
point security solutions into highly scalable network services that are easy
to provision and offer tremendous cost reduction."
Cisco ONE is delivered through a comprehensive set of platform APIs, agents
and controllers and overlay network technologies. Cisco's eXtensible Network
Controller is a key element within the Open Network Environment SDN strategy.
Cisco XNC complements current approaches to emerging technologies like
software-defined networking by offering the tools to help networks become more
open, programmable and application-aware.
