Alcatel-Lucent Recognizes Leading NFV Innovators Who Are Redefining the Future
of the Network at the Annual CloudBand Ecosystem NFV Mixer at Mobile World
Congress

MAHWAH, N.J., March 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware^® (Nasdaq:RDWR), a
leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions
for virtual and cloud data centers, announced it is the first recipient to
receive Alcatel-Lucent's NFVisionary Award.

Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris:ALU)(NYSE:ALU) created the NFVisionary Award
to recognize virtual application companies, from the CloudBand NFV Ecosystem,
who have had the greatest impact and success in helping service providers
drive innovation in their networks and move to the cloud in 2013.
Alcatel-Lucent's CloudBand Ecosystem consists of 26 technology providers
including virtual network function vendors, platform partners and service
providers working collectively to develop and advance NFV in the telecom
industry.

Radware has received top scores for their development work and commitment to
advancing NFV use cases and deployments with the same availability and
reliability that service providers have come to expect. The award recognizes
Radware's commitment to Network Functions Virtualization, based on their:

  *NFV Vision - Radware, an early adopter in the CloudBand NFV Ecosystem, was
    one of the first companies to see and develop an early Network Functions
    Virtualization solution.
    
  *Collaboration - Radware has demonstrated an enthusiastic and collaborative
    spirit in the development of use cases for service providers advancing NFV
    knowledge.
    
  *NFV Use Cases - Radware produced one of the first use cases in 2013,
    demonstrating the virtualization of load balancing, and made this
    available to the NFV community. Radware working with Alcatel-Lucent is
    advancing a new use case to providevDP – Virtual DDoS prevention to
    further facilitate DDoS solutions in NFV implementations.
    
  *NFV Solutions – Radware's development of virtual load balancers has
    contributed a critical component for service provider NFV environments by
    overcoming some of the significant networking challenges associated with
    providing elastic and scalable cloud capabilities.

"CloudBand NFV Ecosystem partners will continue to drive innovation with
service providers to respond to today's virtualization challenges including:
faster service deployment, simplified operations, and better leveraged assets.
Last October, Alcatel-Lucent opened our lab for free so partners like Radware
could onboard their applications onto CloudBand, our NFV Platform, at no cost,
and with NFV experts to help them. We have the only ecosystem who provides a
network environment for our partners to onboard their applications to test and
learn. We believe that this hands-on approach of open collaboration is the key
to helping service providers visualize the benefit of moving to a virtualized
environment. Our goal is to foster collaboration and experimentation that will
accelerate NFV. Congratulations to Radware for their contribution to advancing
the next generation of NFV solutions for service providers," commented Dor
Skuler, General Manager, CloudBand Business Unit, Alcatel-Lucent.

"We are extremely honored to receive this award along with Alcatel-Lucent's
recognition to our ongoing efforts with NFV," says David Aviv, vice president,
advanced services, Radware. "As an early adopter in this ecosystem, we are
pleased to see our hard work, dedication and efforts have been recognized."
