Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, today announced that in response to the ever-increasing volume of attacks and strong business demand, it upgraded its Cloud DDoS Protection Service capacity to absorb DDoS attacks of up to 8Tbps. The company also announced the opening of an additional new cloud scrubbing centre in Amsterdam today, expanding the number of scrubbing centres to 14 deployed globally.
“The recent ransom DDoS campaign that raged globally from September to December 2020 involved massive IoT botnet DDoS attacks, as well as other sophisticated, targeted attacks on organisations’ DNS infrastructure,” said Haim Zelikovsky, Vice President of Cloud Services at Radware. “Radware’s leading DDoS algorithms and mitigation technology, in conjunction with our ability to offer one of the largest mitigation capacities in the world, enables us to consistently stay ahead of threats, even the largest and most sophisticated DDoS attacks, while ensuring service availability.”
Recently, Forrester ranked Radware as a leader for DDoS protection with the highest score in the current offering category.
The new scrubbing facility in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, complements Radware’s existing scrubbing centres worldwide. Radware’s 14 scrubbing centres are globally connected in full mesh mode using Anycast-based routing to allow mitigating DDoS attacks closest to their points of origin, and helping companies keep data within their borders.
Radware recently completed a major upgrade to all its existing scrubbing centres with the deployment of clusters of its market-leading DefensePro attack mitigation devices, equipped with Radware’s latest security algorithms with unique attack mitigation capabilities. Radware’s latest DefensePro technology analyzes traffic patterns, such as sudden and massive spikes, to provide automated, behaviour-based protection from fast moving, high volume, encrypted or very short duration DDoS attacks. This includes burst DDoS attacks, attacks on DNS infrastructure, and encrypted DDoS attacks.
Radware backs up these technological advancements with service excellence and dedication, including its Emergency Response Team, which has been successfully mitigating thousands of large-scale DDoS attacks annually.
