Radware and Brinkster Extend Cyber Security Coverage With Hybrid Attack
Brinkster and Radware to Unveil a New Cloud-Based / On-Premise Anti-DDoS
Solution at the Arizona Technology Summit
MAHWAH, N.J., Sept. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware^® (Nasdaq:RDWR), a
leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions
for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced that Brinkster, a leading
provider of custom Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, is to launch a new
Hybrid Attack Mitigation Service based on Radware's award winning network and
application security technologies.
The offering combines the benefits of volumetric flood protection through a
Brinkster operated cloud scrubbing service, together with Radware's customer
based or "on-premise" DefensePro^®, a real-time perimeter security product.
Brinkster, a Phoenix, AZ based Custom Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service
Provider, currently offers a range of hosted services that are secured against
cyber security threats by Radware's Attack Mitigation System. The same level
of protection is now available to Brinkster clients that subscribe to this new
Hybrid AMS offering; entire operations can now be secured with the most
comprehensive anti-DDoS protection available on the market.
DefensePro helps safeguard business continuity by blocking Distributed
Denial-of-Service attacks, application vulnerability exploits, malware and
other emerging network attacks at the enterprise perimeter. Only on-premise
solutions can detect and mitigate attacks in real-time.
However, on-premise availability solutions are susceptible to massive
volumetric attacks – DDoS floods that can saturate a business' internet
connectivity. Such attacks are best mitigated in the cloud.
Should a volumetric attack threaten to congest an organization's internet
pipe, Brinkster's cloud scrubbing service works in harmony with DefensePro to
detect and mitigate attacks in real-time and to automatically invoke
cloud-based scrubbing. Additionally, information about an attack is
communicated between the enterprise's on-premise DefensePro and Brinkster's
cloud, enabling immediate attack mitigation.
This hybrid model ensures that SSL encrypted attacks, low & slow attacks, and
other attack vectors that cannot be handled by cloud-only anti-DDoS solutions
are blocked at the enterprise data center perimeter.
Brinkster is a Radware value-added reseller of Radware's Attack Mitigation
System product line. As such, Brinkster is now offering the Hybrid AMS
solution to new clients and its base of over 50,000 worldwide customers.
"By merging on-premise and cloud attack mitigation, Radware's hybrid solution
enables us to widen our security coverage and minimize the response time to a
cyber attack," says Jared Stauffer, chief executive officer of Brinkster.
"Employing this 'best of breed' solution takes our managed custom cloud
services to the next level, and we look forward to demonstrating this
capability during the Arizona technology summit."
"Standard cloud-based anti-DDoS services simply can't detect and block attacks
in real-time, nor can they deal with the growing number of SSL encrypted
attacks that we're seeing," says Amir Peles, vice president of technology,
Radware. "Enterprises that depend on their on-line systems to conduct business
should employ hybrid cloud-based / on-premise solutions if they want to
protect their operations against the persistent, multi-vector attacks that are
in use today."
Radware and Brinkster will be showcasing this new Hybrid Attack Mitigation
Service during the 5th Annual Arizona Technology Summitlocated at the Phoenix
Convention Center on September 25th 2013.
