Radware Joins HP's Partnership Program Furthering Its SDN Strategy
Radware Participates in HP's SDN Ecosystem and Offers Application
Delivery/Attack Mitigation Solutions for SDN Native Applications
MAHWAH, N.J., Oct. 1, 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 it has partnered with
HP^®, a recognized pioneer in software defined networking, (SDN) to help
accelerate its product development in order to increase its presence in the
Focusing on a wide spectrum of customers ranging from e-commerce, financial,
large enterprise, online retail, government, utilities and service providers,
Radware will offer two major applications – DefenseFlow^TM and ElasticScale.
Both of which are currently in production and beta testing, respectively.
DefenseFlow is an SDN application that enables network operators to program
the network to provide DDoS protection as a native network service. It
features an adaptive behavioral-based DoS attack detection engine and a
traffic diversion mechanism that utilizes the programmable characteristics of
the software defined network elements for attack cleansing.
Built as a native SDN application, DefenseFlow operates in any SDN enabled
network infrastructure and allows provisioning of DDoS mitigation services per
customer in seconds. As detection is done using OpenFlow network statistics,
there is no need to deploy a layer of hardware detectors that consume router
ports, minimizing operational costs.
DefenseFlow also diverts the traffic to the nearest mitigation device
eliminating the need for purpose built scrubbing centers, further saving on
Also part of the Radware SDN application framework, ElasticScale proactively
optimizes network services by programming software defined networks. It is an
SDN application that wraps existing network service virtual appliances and
provides provisioning and traffic distribution logic to consistently deliver
network services in an elastic demand environment.
ElasticScale is the only solution addressing all three aspects of network
service scalability: virtual appliance provisioning, traffic distribution
across virtual appliances and acceleration of virtual appliance I/O. It does
not require customers to develop their own applications to new API's that have
been provided in order to fulfill this functionality.
ElasticScale also allows carriers and service providers to offer application
delivery (ADC), web performance optimization (WPO), web application firewalls
(WAF) and Anti-DoS protections at a dynamic scale.
Service providers achieve an agile and scalable L4-7 service infrastructure
and can optimize resource utilization in network service resources, rapidly
respond to spikes in demand for certain network services and optimally
distribute traffic between network service elements while changing resource
"IT organizations and service providers struggle to reduce operational costs
and turn their value-added services into center of profits and costs savings,"
says Avi Chesla, chief technology officer, Radware.
"By collaborating with HP on SDN, our joint customers can easily align
application delivery and security services with application needs using the
programmability nature of the network, thus turning the network into an agile
resource that better serves the dynamic behavior of the application
infrastructure," added Chesla.
