Radware Releases DefenseFlow v1.0 for NEC's ProgrammableFlow(R) Controller

Radware Expands Its Attack Mitigation Network (AMN) Coverage Through
Collaboration With NEC to Produce a Native SDN Solution That Allows Users to
Provision Protection Against DoS/DDoS Attacks Per Virtual Network

MAHWAH, N.J., March 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware^®(Nasdaq:RDWR), a
leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions
for virtual and cloud data centers, announced it has released the general
availability version of DefenseFlow^™, the AMN Cyber Control and Intelligence
Application v1.0, for the NEC ProgrammableFlow Controller.

Together, NEC and Radware have produced a native SDN solution based on both
vendors' products to expand DDoS attacks detection and mitigation in NEC
ProgrammableFlow networks. Utilizing the NEC controller that programs NEC
ProgrammableFlow SDN switches to become part of the DoS/DDoS protection
service itself, DefenseFlow allows network operators to provision a DoS/DDoS
protection service per virtual tenant network or per customer.

Radware's DefenseFlow includes an SDN security application that enables
network operators to program the network to provide DDoS protection as a
native network service for SDN enabled networks. DefenseFlow 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.

Several key features include:

  *Best DDoS Protection solution in the industry – DefenseFlow deploys
    Behavioral-based technology to detect network attacks in real time;
    mitigates attacks with Radware field proven attack mitigation devices.
    
  *Dynamic service provisioning – security services are provisioned per
    virtual tenant network enabling operators to apply it as an on-demand
    service for their commercial offering.
    
  *Highly reduced costs – the attack mitigation device is a shared resource
    that is virtualized per tenant and used only when under attack. This means
    significant CapEx and OpEx savings when compared to standard inline or
    out-of-path DDoS mitigation solutions.

"We are happy to collaborate with NEC on this initiative extending the Attack
Mitigation Network ecosystem to offer easy to provision DDoS attack mitigation
as a service for SDN enabled networks," says Avi Chesla, chief technology
officer at Radware. "Radware's unique and field-proven DDoS protection
technology together with NEC's rich experience in the server and networking
markets, and its innovative first to market commercial OpenFlow products,
provides an advantage for any datacenter and/or clouds managed security
providers that consider transition to SDN frameworks."

"Protecting IT resources from malicious attack has become a critical role for
IT organizations," says Don Clark, director of business development, NEC
Corporation of America. "The integration of DefenseFlow with ProgrammableFlow
Controller can provide a scalable solution for detecting and mitigating denial
of service and other attacks, especially for multi-tenant cloud environments."
