Radware Showcases Application-Smart Networking with Innovative Approach to IP Traffic Management at Interop NY


Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), the leading provider of intelligent integrated solutions for ensuring the fast, reliable and secure delivery of networked and Web-enabled applications over IP, today announced that it will highlight its innovative approach to Layer 4-7 switching and showcase application-smart networking at Interop New York. Radware's new approach treats networks as a critical business enabler. Radware's APSolute OS Classifier and Flow Manager software extracts and uses unprecedented granular intelligence about applications, content and users to adapt network behavior and align application delivery policies with business process. Radware's approach to application-smart networking bridges the inherent gap between the application and the network.

Radware's APSolute application delivery architecture for application-smart networking is based on a deep understanding of the application requirements for more than seventy commonly used networked and web-enabled enterprise applications. The applications range from ERP/CRM database, peer-to-peer, Internet and server-based applications. Classifier and Flow Manager are the core engines of Radware's integrated application delivery APSolute architecture that enable end-to-end tuning of network behavior for specific applications. Network behavior is tuned to ensure application optimization at every critical point between the data center and geographically dispersed users.

"In today's networked world, distributed applications drive business productivity and growth," said Dr. Michelle Blank, CMO for Radware. "Application intelligence is key to deriving the greatest value from investments in network infrastructure. With APSolute Classifier and Flow Manager, we have a core building block for making networks application-smart that we have embedded across our entire APSolute product family. It is the engine that allows use to custom-fit application delivery solutions to ensure the availability, performance and security of business critical applications and make networks serve our customer's specific business needs."

APSolute OS Classifier identifies, inspects and classifies application traffic based on any one, or combination of Layer 4-7 parameters, including application payload, content, and user information. Network managers can define, manage, and enforce classes of traffic once, then apply the policies across APSolute's integrated application delivery services. Radware provides customizable, pre-defined policies for over seventy different enterprise applications to enforce specific rules for different classes of traffic.

With APSolute OS Flow Manager, users can apply defined policies to direct the flow of different classes of traffic across the network. Users can redirect, forward and copy to any type of device, including transparent devices (such as routers and firewalls), proxies (anti-virus, anti-spam and URL filters), sniffers (IDS), application servers, and more. Flow Manager also allows users to specify the order of traffic flow between devices. This enables users to make decisions prior to every step based on application-specific classification criteria.

Dr. Blank with be giving an executive presentation on application-smart networking at Interop on December 14th at 2:00 PM at the Interop theater in Room 3D03. For more information, please stop by Radware booth # 535 at Interop, NY - Jacob Javits Convention Center, New York, NY.
