Radware helps HT Media protect its news and photographic archives from attacks

SYDNEY, May 27, 2020 —Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, today announced that HT Media selected Radware’s Attack Mitigation Solution to protect the data centres that house its archive of news and photographs, and added cloud DDoS protection to its on premise DDoS protection. 

Founded in 1924 with its flagship newspaper inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi, HT Media (BSE, NSE) has more than 3.7 million readers across India.  It’s flagship property, Hindusian Times reaches around  950,000 readers. 

The company also owns other successful properties like Livemint.com, Desimartini.com, HTCampus.com and Shine.com. It depended on a combination of on-prem and ISP based Cloud Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection for its data centres, where it housed many of its legacy systems as well as its archived content. 

The media company began to see a steady increase in the frequency and volume of attacks and turned to Radware for help. It needed a hybrid DDoS solution that combined on-prem and cloud DDoS protection more effectively than its existing set up. 

Radware’s hybrid DDoS solution integrates always-on detection and mitigation (on-premise and cloud) with cloud-based volumetric DDoS attack prevention, scrubbing, and 24-7 emergency support. 

Combining on-premise with cloud solutions, takes advantage of the low latency and advanced functionality of Radware’s appliances with the scalability and multi-terabit capacity of its cloud-scrubbing service. Once Radware put a proof-of-concept in place for HT Media, the solution began immediately and efficiently blocking the attacks. 

“Radware’s automatic policy adjustments made the system easy to deploy compared to other systems,” said Rajiv Mishra. Group CIO for HT Media. “The Radware solution was incredibly fast at mitigation. It was able to instantly block zero-day attacks as they occurred.” 

“We are proud to protect HT Media’s history and legacy,” said Anna Convery-Pelletier, Radware’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Our market-leading data centre security allows companies like HT Media to automatically detect and mitigate even the most complex DDoS attacks.”
