   By: Efrat Levi

DefensePro Proven to Offer Comprehensive Application Security and Performance 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 attacks.

"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 applications unaffected."

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."
