Radware®, a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced that it has entered a strategic partnership with Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet. Under the agreement, the new line of Check Point DDoS Protector™ appliances will be based on Radware's Attack Mitigation System (AMS).
Check Point DDoS Protector can extend an organization's security perimeters to block destructive DDoS attacks before they cause damage. With ultra-fast response times, the DDoS Protector appliance blocks a wide range of attacks within seconds, and can be easily customized to meet specific network environments and security needs. Check Point customers benefit from 24x7 customer support and access to a dedicated emergency response team.
"It's no secret that Denial of Service attacks represent a serious challenge to businesses worldwide, and this offering will provide organizations with the capabilities they need to mitigate these threats," said Amnon Bar-Lev, president at Check Point Software Technologies. "Through our partnership with Radware, we are bringing our customers road-tested technology matched with our market-leading security expertise."
Added Shai Schiller, vice president, Corporate Development and Strategic Business, Radware: "Teaming with Check Point on the DDoS Protector line of security appliances brings together two industry leaders in a best-of-breed solution to help business effectively detect and block in seconds the type of DoS attacks that overuse network and application resources. We are very excited to be selected by Check Point for this strategic relationship, which is further proof of the leadership and value that Radware brings to the application and network security space."
Cybercriminals are leveraging DoS and DDoS attacks to disrupt corporate networks. They can flood targeted networks with an overwhelming amount of traffic or with a few well-crafted requests - completely interrupting legitimate business traffic. According a recent study of global application and network security conducted by Radware's Emergency Response Team, DoS attacks have become much more organized, professional and complex with attackers using as many as five different attack vectorsin a single attack campaign.
