Radware Discusses Next-Generation Data Center Strategies at its Global Executive Exchange Forums


Executive Exchange forums present opportunities for partners and customers to jointly discuss ‘Smart Choices’ for data centers – from consolidation and SOA to virtualization, security, and cloud computing 

Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), the leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced it will hold two forums – one in Asia to meet the localized business needs of the APAC (Asia Pacific) market, and a second in Europe to accommodate partner and customer activities in the Americas and EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa). Radware’s Executive Exchange forums encourage partners and customers to learn, interact and engage in a program of events planned to shape the future of tomorrow’s data center, by making ‘Smart Choices’ today.

‘Smart Choices,’ the theme for both forums, centers on the need to prioritize IT initiatives by aligning key business drivers with next-generation data center requirements, the core foundation to Radware’s Business-Smart Data Center strategy. Each Executive Exchange forum will present an opportunity for customers, partners and Radware executives to discuss: key advancements in application infrastructure and security solutions to help global businesses overcome IT complexities; how to ensure cost-effective procurement to accomplish long-term investment protection and make the smartest choices for their businesses and customers in today’s challenging economy.

Radware President and CEO, Roy Zisapel, will offer the keynote address at each forum, unveiling how the choices that are made today can greatly impact the survival of businesses tomorrow. He will look at new approaches to facilitate business-IT alignment rendering networks business-smart. Mr. Zisapel will also cover the importance of bringing together mission-critical application intelligence and advancements in processing power to make networks agile and responsive in the changing IT and business environments – from incorporating on-demand/pay-as-you grow procurement models, to behavioral security solutions for addressing emerging threats to virtualization solutions, and enabling network flexibility based on business events.

“To stay viable and competitive in the global landscape, enterprises and carriers must be able to deliver on their mission-critical applications everywhere. By leveraging new IT cost and scalability models they can optimize their end-to-end network operations for high availability and performance while they achieve capital as well as operational savings,” said Roy Zisapel. “Our global Executive Exchange forums enable our customers, partners and executive team to discuss and share knowledge about best practices that drive greater business productivity, improve profitability and reduce IT operating and infrastructure costs.”

Offering both business and technical value, the APAC and EMEA events include two days of educational tracks focused on data center strategies and initiatives, followed by an opportunity to enjoy the culture of each location. Each forum’s program will address key drivers for the next-generation data center, as well as offer time to learn and engage with Radware executives, customers, partners and leading application vendors.
