Radware Provides Critical Solutions for Network Administrators as Mobile
Device Usage Increases
As Mobile Web Access Rises, Businesses Must Prepare for an Increase in Network
Strain by Improving Both Site Performance and Customer Satisfaction
MAHWAH, N.J., July 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The increase in mobile device
usage among consumers has resulted in network challenges for businesses of all
types and sizes. According to the Monetate Q1 2013 Ecommerce Quarterly,
tablets have exceeded traditional desktops in driving web traffic and
conversion rates, suggesting that users rely more heavily on mobile devices to
make purchases and complete transactions through web applications and mobile
According to Radware^®, (Nasdaq:RDWR) a leading provider of application
delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data
centers, this trend extends beyond the ecommerce industry impacting banking,
CRM and supply chain industries - mobile device usage has proven to be a real
challenge for network administrators as they struggle to meet new bandwidth,
connection, security and performance demands.
"For businesses which require users to access their services through web
applications, such as retailers and financial institutions – mobile devices
put a real strain on their network, particularly on bandwidth consumed – a
direct result of how heavy a page is being served," says Prakash Sinha, vice
president of ADC Solutions, Radware. "Slower page loads unfortunately results
in decreased customer loyalty and satisfaction and directly impacts revenue.
Companies can no longer ignore mobile device users and must adapt their
business strategy to place a greater priority on ensuring security,
availability and low latency for applications."
According to Sinha, "Studies have proven that downtime and web access issues –
even by a few seconds – can result in a significant annual revenue loss for
businesses. It is no longer optional for businesses to address network strain
from mobile usage."
There are five immediate actions that companies can take to prepare their
websites and applications for mobile device access:
*Visibility into Application Performance: 80-90% of end-user response time
is spent on the front-end of an application or mobile site. Engineers need
to take this into account during development to ensure that applications
are both responsive and well maintained - gaining visibility to user
experience and becoming proactive in optimizing it.
*Automated Web Performance Optimization Technology: Faster page load times
directly impact sales and conversions. Businesses should invest in
technology solutions that have the ability to automate acceleration of web
content such as a mobile browser cache that offers site owners the ability
to configure persistent, reliable storage for caching objects from their
site on mobile devices, enabling significant acceleration also for mobile
*Application Certification: Certification templates for applications result
in quicker deployment while reducing IT costs and improving employee
*Denial of Service (DoS) Protection: Increased web access demands tighter
security. Typical victims of DoS attacks are online businesses and service
providers, and often result in revenue loss or increased network costs.
It's critical for businesses to utilize technology to protect against both
application and network-level attacks.
*Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs): Asymmetric and symmetric
deployment of ADCs will address many of the challenges listed above –
while reducing downtime, managing web traffic (particularly during
high-peak times) and improving overall Quality of Service (QoS).
"Many businesses currently operate under the misconception that their in-house
development team or investment in a WAN optimization technology can
sufficiently address the challenges that mobile devices bring to their network
– but oftentimes, it's not enough," says Sinha. "An investment in the right
technology solutions will result in increased productivity for network
administrators on the back-end – resulting in an overall higher performance.
Businesses will ultimately save money – reducing or eliminating on-going
manual processes that require time-intensive and costly work from in-house IT
