Radware®, a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announces the introduction of DefensePipe™, an integrated and comprehensive solution to help mitigate volumetric DDoS attacks which threaten to saturate a customer's Internet pipe, or the 'outside line' that connects enterprises to the web.
DefensePipe is an innovative market solution for end to end attack mitigation on-premise and in the cloud. Available to Radware customers that currently deploy an on-premise Attack Mitigation System (AMS), it is a scalable solution that automatically engages once the customer's AMS detects that pipe saturation is imminent.
The sharing of behavioral base line data between the on-premise AMS and DefensePipe, that includes a real-time signature created by the AMS, enables DefensePipe to start mitigation in the cloud much faster and with greater accuracy.
The organization's suspicious Internet traffic is immediately diverted to the DefensePipe cloud based scrubbing center where it is distanced further from the protected network and its scalable resources can mitigate high volume attacks. Once the traffic is "cleaned" it is then sent to the organization and regular operations continue once the attack has ceased.
"To effectively diminish availability-based threats, you must take a holistic approach on both detection and mitigation," says Avi Chesla, chief technology officer, Radware. "Today's security challenges including multi-vulnerability attack campaigns are better addressed when detection and mitigation resources appropriately match the threat type and attack target in any given time."
"We've essentially extended the strength of our AMS to the cloud with this robust end to end solution that provides greater flexibility to protect against any type and size of threat all under the hood of the same attack mitigation system," added Chesla.
Also included is access to Radware's Emergency Response Team (ERT), a 'round the clock' staff of security experts who are knowledgeable and experienced with emerging cyber threats, their detection and mitigation. Whether the attack needs to be mitigated on-premise or in the Cloud, Radware's Emergency Response Team mitigates the attack with the customer during the entire attack campaign. Customers will not need to work with multiple vendors or services during an attack and can benefit from the peace of mind of having a single contact point during an attack.
"Radware's DefensePipe was a natural fit, as we're very pleased with their attack mitigation system and its unmatched capability," says Robert Proulx, Eng. president and founder of Xittel Télécommunications.
"The combination of an on-premise AMS and DefensePipe in the cloud provides us with maximum security coverage and the ideal solution to ensure the availability of our customers' business. Furthermore, it allows us to maintain our high SLA with our hosted customers, providing a much greater value for them," added Proulx.
Additional features of Radware's DefensePipe Cloud based mitigation solution include:
• Widest security coverage compared to any other vendor. The integration of on-premise AMS and DefensePipe provides wide coverage of attacks that cannot be detected and protected by other solutions that are deployed only in the cloud or only on-premise. Attack coverage includes SSL based attacks, application layer attacks, low & slow, network floods, known vulnerabilities and egress traffic attacks.
• Shortest response time by employing an on-premise AMS that starts immediately and automatically to mitigate the attack. There is no need to wait for human intervention or to divert the traffic to a remote data center in order to start mitigation.
• Integrated reporting system provides information both from the on-premise mitigation and in the cloud mitigation. This enables customers to perform more efficient forensics, better understand the threats they are facing and to better plan their mitigation strategy for future threats.
