The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2008-04-28T18:00:00Z Radware 2008-04-28T18:00:00Z radware-s-defensepro-receives-nss-labs-approved-for-attack-mitigation 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.

Computershare selects Radware for intelligent traffic management across Australian, UK and US sites 2001-08-28T13:02:00Z computershare-selects-radware-for-intelligent-traffic-management-across-australian-uk-and-us-sites Computershare has selected a range of Radware products, from Open Systems Pty Ltd, to maintain a fault-tolerant, load balanced environment for its online global financial services operation. Computershare is committed to making sure its online global investor service is fast, consistent and fully operational 24x7. Computershare is the world's largest shareholder registry, managing more than 62 million shareholder accounts for over 7,000 corporations in nine countries on five continents. Computershare will install three Radware Web Server Directors (WSD-NP), for network proximity at its sites in Australia, UK and the US for faster, more efficient and reliable global service for end users. WSD-NP was specifically designed for Internet applications running on several data centres and is ideally suited to Computershare which runs its e-commerce service from three sites across the globe. Computershare will also install a CertainT 100 SSL accelerator at each site which will significantly speed-up online transactions. This is accomplished by relieving network web servers from performing - CPU intensive SSL encryption and decryption calculations associated with e-commerce applications. David Wigley, managing director of Open Systems Pty Ltd said, Computershare had an exhaustive technical design and evaluation process, requiring a fault tolerant, load-balanced solution on a global scale with the capability to handle large volumes of accelerated SSL connections. Radware products are ideally suited to the task. Computershare is now positioned to provide investors with fast, consistent and fully operational 24x7 online services. Tony Burke, general manager of Radware Australia said, Computershare showed an impressive level of due diligence in the selection process. The decision was made on a comparative basis and Radware was selected because we came out on top after the boxes had been put through their paces. Radwares exceptional customer service and support was also a key factor. Tony Burke said, The combination of the Web Server Director and Certain T 100 from Radware will give Computershare the highest level of performance, resilience and load balancing possible across its global website infrastructure. The solution can be scaled up to 20,000 SSL transactions per second locally, and has capacity for an unlimited number of regular http and SSL transactions on a global level. -ENDS- About Open Systems Open Systems is a Canberra based organisation established in 1991 to cater to the computing infrastructure requirements of both Government and private enterprise.
