MAHWAH, N.J., April 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware^® (Nasdaq:RDWR), a
leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions
for virtual and cloud data centers, announced its Security Operation Center
with the assistance of Radware's Emergency Response Team (ERT) have provided
full protection for its customers in response to the OpenSSL "Heartbleed"
To help its customers protect their businesses from information leakage,
Radware suggests the following steps should be employed:
*As part of Radware's Attack Mitigation System (AMS) and Attack Mitigation
Network (AMN), customers using OpenSSL for Web applications are advised to
use Radware's SSL-based attack mitigation solution, DefenseSSL. Current
customers using DefenseSSL can continue to protect HTTPS applications
without the need of an update.
*To help block exploits of the OpenSSL vulnerability, Radware has created
several vulnerability signatures that can be used by DefensePro^®,
Radware's real-time, behavioral based attack mitigation device. As an
additional measure of security, Radware's ERT can also provide security
assistance in real-time.
*Radware advises its customers to employ protection tools that match their
exact requirements and comply with security assessments as Radware's ERT
has found recent protection tools could possibly cause both false
negatives and false positives.
"Radware has taken a strong and defensive posture against this recent threat,
making DefenseSSL available to help protect against this vulnerability," says
Gabi Malka, chief operating officer, Radware. "This SSL-based solution uses
sophisticated network behavioral analysis mechanisms that can protect against
Heartbleed and can be used to protect Web based services that use SSL. We will
continue our strong commitment to our customers by continually monitoring this
situation in order to provide any necessary protection and support."
