Radware expands its Australian presence following record quarter results

Radware Australia today announced the opening of its second Australian office. The local expansion follows Radwares recent record revenues. The first quarter 2001 global revenues increased to US$12.8 million, an increase of 96% compared with US$6.5million from the same period of 2000. The new North Sydney office will support its Australian and New Zealand head office in Melbourne.

Radware develops intelligent traffic management solutions. Local customers include government agencies, international banks and several top 500 companies.

Tony Burke, General Manager Radware Australia said, We expect continued expansion in Australia and New Zealand as the demand for internet traffic management and intelligent networking products picks up.

Despite the market slow down, Radware has reported profit for the sixth consecutive quarter. We attribute this to our technological specialisation and leadership in IP or Internet traffic management, Tony Burke said.

Radwares new Sydney-based team is made up of Teresa Stancato, formerly of ANZ where she worked as an IP/data network engineer. She is joined by Jonathan Harris, formerly a business development manager at CDM, and Constantine Georgiou, who was previously with Com Tech Communications Pty Ltd where he was responsible for business development within the banking and finance sector.
