MAHWAH, N.J. -— Radware (NASDAQ; RDWR) the leading provider of Intelligent Application Switching (IAS) solutions ensuring the availability, performance and security of networked applications across the enterprise, announced today the launch of DefensePro – the highest performance security switch in the market. DefensePro is the only product in the market capable of addressing the demand for multi- Gigabit security switching, comprehensive intrusion prevention and real-time Denial of Service protection to secure applications across high speed networks.

"Organizations today must develop an enterprise-wide view with deep packet inspection of the traffic traversing the network. Worms and network attacks have become part of the Internet background radiation, inflicting tremendous damage and affecting application performance. More than ever, it is crucial to maintain bullet-proof security at high throughput levels with no performance degradation, "said Richard Stiennon, Research VP at Gartner.

“Protecting applications against malicious intrusions and DoS attacks requires application layer intelligence and high capacity security performance to inspect and protect all traffic. Our new product family DefensePro delivers multi-Gigabit speeds of deep packet inspection to isolate, block and prevent application attacks in real time,” said Roy Zisapel, President and CEO, Radware. “Radware is the first vendor in the industry to provide a multi-Gigabit security switch, keeping mission critical applications connected and protected.”

DefensePro performance breakthrough is based on its non-blocking 44Gbps switching matrix and its dedicated ASIC based StringMatch Engine™ hardware. Using eight parallel String Search ASICs, DefensePro provides 3Gigabit real-time detection and blocking of intrusions, viruses, Trojans and worms – 1000 percent faster than appliance based solutions.

"Evergreen is proud to be the first service provider integrating Radware's DefensePro into its solution, the Evergreen DRMS, a disaster prevention and recovery management system. As part of our managed service offering for the prevention of downtime, DefensePro enables full traffic throughput and continuous network performance while securing mission critical applications," said John Liccione, President, Technical Operations and CTO, Evergreen Assurance. "Our customers are provided with real-time monitoring and blocking of attacks, giving them additional valuable protection."

“The growing number of worms and attacks launched against carrier network services continues to grow. As one of Korea’s leading telecommunication companies, we recognized early on the need for protection against malicious intrusions, while maintaining optimized performance. Radware DefensePro technology has kept our infrastructure secure by isolating DoS attacks, providing customers with secure connectivity and filtering out malicious code on backbone links,” said Bae KangHo, Leader of Information Security at Dacom.
