DefensePro Proven to Offer Comprehensive Application Security
Capabilities at High Throughput Speeds
Helping organizations secure, optimize and ensure performance
for mission critical applications, Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR) the
leading provider of Intelligent Application Switching solutions,
announced that recent independent tests by The Tolly Group
confirm that DefensePro offers comprehensive Intrusion Prevention
Switch (IPS) capabilities.
Results showed that DefensePro not only provides standard IPS
capabilities to isolate, block and prevent attacks at 2.5 Gbps
throughput, but also offers advanced security intelligence
features such as attack isolation, traffic shaping,
bi-directional SSL inspection, Denial of Service Protection,
Mass Mailing Protection and protection against Evasion
Techniques, that ensure application performance and reliability
even while the network is under attack.
Realizing that application security involves more than strictly
blocking malicious content, Radware enlisted The Tolly Group to
conduct a series of real-world tests that examined the
DefensePro 3000's ability to thwart attacks and still ensure the
availability and performance of mission critical applications.
In standard IPS performance tests, Radware solutions were proven
to secure mission critical applications in real time across
high-speed and high capacity environments. Recognition was noted
to Radware on the company's integration of Intrusion Prevention
and Denial of Service protection in one device as well as the
ability to mitigate SSL-based attacks and SMTP mass mailing
"To guarantee both network security and application performance
and reliability, an IPS solution needs to go beyond just
blocking or preventing attacks," said Assaf Ronen, VP R&D of
Radware. "Advanced security features like bandwidth management
and attack isolation should be a requirement in any IPS
solution, so that organizations can ensure end-to-end security
and performance of their mission critical applications - even
while in the throes of an attack. The Tolly Group's tests
confirmed that DefensePro's advanced security features can block
all manner of attacks while leaving these mission-critical
The Tolly Group tests underscored the unique capabilities of
DefensePro 3000 and concluded that:
DefensePro blocked application attacks at an unmatched speed of
2.5 Gigabits per second by identifying and mitigating protocol
and traffic anomalies in real-time.
DefensePro's unique bandwidth management capability was able to
isolate attacks by dynamically managing bandwidth to stop
propagation across users and resources while ensuring complete
continuity and performance of all secure traffic to proactively
control impact and limit damage.
DefensePro prevented DoS/DDoS attacks and SYN floods,
safeguarding against illicit traffic patterns and hacking.
DefensePro also leveraged a wide range of DoS protection
capabilities including packet-based attacks, TCP, UDP and ICMP
flood protection and DHCP flood protection.
"DefensePro ranks among the strongest providers of IPS solutions
we have reviewed before," stated Kevin Tolly, president/CEO of
The Tolly Group. "With features like bandwidth management, SSL
and evasion attack capabilities and multi-segment protection,
Radware provides a solid package of cost effective application
security and performance for organizations."
