DefensePro 1020 blocked 100 percent of attacks while passing 100 percent of legitimate traffic without need for user intervention

Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), the leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking today announced that its behavioral protection solution received the highly regarded “Approved” rating from NSS Labs, a world leader in independent security product testing and certification.


Radware’s DefensePro 1020 blocked 100 percent of attacks while passing 100 percent of legitimate traffic during NSS Labs’ rigorous evaluation that included rate-based attacks mixed with genuine traffic.


“The appliance’s attack detection capabilities were excellent, as the product successfully mitigated all of our attempts,” said Bob Walder, CTO of NSS Labs. “Reconnaissance, flooding, Denial of Service – both single source and distributed – and protocol fuzzing traffic were all handled very effectively by Radware’s DefensePro 1020.”


NSS Labs also cited that latency and performance figures for the appliance were excellent at almost all traffic loads and packet sizes, ranging from a minimum of 67µs with 250Mbps of 128 byte packets, to a maximum of 128µs with 1Gbps of 1,514 byte packets. The certification report noted very little variance in latency occurred as load was increased – a unique differentiator for DefensePro.


"The NSS certification for DefensePro confirms what we already knew – that DefensePro is the best in class concerning its ability to protect us from application- and network-level threats and attacks, while enhancing the overall performance of security across our infrastructure. It reinforces our belief in the quality and advanced performance capabilities of Radware products,” stated Scott Moar, CTO of Conet eCommerce Services (www.conet.net), Curacao's preeminent total e-commerce solution provider.


NSS Labs operates a transparent, scientifically repeatable certification process, ensuring the highest levels of independence, diligence and integrity. NSS Labs performs real-world product testing, employing full application layer traffic, real verifiable exploits and live hosts. Products are tested according to appropriate use cases and protective requirements, ranging from datacenter, ecommerce datacenter, perimeter, and remote office/retail storefront.

“NSS Labs testing and certification program provides CIOs and CSOs confidence when implementing Intrusion prevention devices within their networks,” said Avi Chesla, Vice-President of Security, Radware Ltd. “This NSS report clearly demonstrates Radware's leadership in protecting against next generation attacks with full accuracy and without human intervention.”
