Provides Leading DDoS Attack Protection Capabilities for Cisco's Newest Multi-service Security Appliance

Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions ensuring optimal service level for applications in virtual, cloud and software defined data centers, announced it has provided to Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO) its distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation technology for the new Cisco Firepower 9300 appliance designed for service providers.

Cisco Systems selected Radware’s DDoS mitigation technology for its ability to accurately detect and mitigate cyber threats - in particular those targeting application availability - in the shortest amount of time. Radware’s DDoS mitigation technology is a real-time, behavioral based, mitigation solution that helps protect against security threats targeted at the availability of the protected service, without blocking legitimate user traffic.

“We are excited to bring to the market our next generation security platform - the Firepower 9300 appliance,” says Marc Solomon, VP of Security Marketing at Cisco Systems. “By incorporating our own unique security approach along with Radware’s DDoS protection on the Firepower 9300, we are able to deliver threat-centric security solutions for service providers including advanced firewalling, DDoS protection, and other security protection services.”

DDoS mitigation powered by Radware, combined with Cisco’s threat-centric security solutions on the Firepower 9300 appliance, will help detect anomalous behavior on the network and protect service providers, their customers and their data from advanced threats – before, during and after an attack. Through this tightly integrated security approach, Cisco can provide enhanced agility by allowing security to dynamically follow workloads and data flows through open and programmable networks. This can help service providers avoid problems traditional security service silos present.

“We are happy to have partnered with Cisco in order to provide them with a robust DDoS protection solution that they’ve integrated into their new product line,” says Jack Sorci, vice president of business development for Radware. “This partnership furthers our cooperation with Cisco around its key data center initiatives with our application delivery and security solutions for ACI, UCS and SDN.”
