Independent Testing Confirms Radware Intrusion Prevention Capabilities and Denial of Service Protection

Helping organizations secure, optimize and ensure performance for mission critical applications, Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR) the leading provider of Intelligent Application Switching solutions, announced that recent independent tests by the NSS Group, an independent security testing facility, confirm that DefensePro offers comprehensive and reliable Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) capabilities.

Realizing that application security involves more than strictly blocking malicious content, Radware submitted its DefensePro 3000 to the NSS Group's IPS testing program, during which they conducted a series of real-world tests that examined DefensePro's ability to thwart attacks while ensuring the availability and performance of mission critical applications. The NSS Group's rigorous, independent tests proved that Radware's DefensePro 3000 secured mission critical applications across high-speed and high capacity environments. Moreover, NSS Group found DefensePro's throughput and latency are excellent under almost all network loads and across all packet sizes, underscoring Radware's assertion that DefensePro offers industry leading defense and application availability.

"Beyond blocking or preventing attacks, an IPS solution must also guarantee network security and application performance and reliability," said Assaf Ronen, vice president of research and development, Radware. "The NSS Group's tests confirmed that only DefensePro's advanced security features can block all manner of attacks while leaving these mission-critical applications unaffected."

The NSS Group tests underscored the unique capabilities of DefensePro and concluded that:

  • Under eight hours of extended attack (comprising millions of exploits mixed with genuine traffic), DefensePro blocked 100 percent of attack traffic, while passing all legitimate traffic.
  • DefensePro's switching architecture helped it post excellent latency figures under all traffic loads.
  • DefensePro demonstrated impressive SYN protection, processing 100Mbps of SYN flood traffic with negligible latency while safeguarding against illicit traffic patterns and hacking.
  • DefensePro blocked application attacks at a speed of 1-Gigabit per second by identifying and mitigating protocol and traffic anomalies in real-time.

"Radware's overall performance is quite impressive," said Bob Walder, Director, NSS Group. "Our tests found that DefensePro detected and, more importantly, blocked all attacks -even when subjected to extreme conditions."
