Radware Beefs Up Cloud Firewalls

Radware, a provider of cybersecurity and application delivery solutions, released a new managed, cloud-based Web Application Firewall (WAF) service that provides protection from web-based cyberattacks.

The transition of web-based applications to the cloud have rendered on-premises mitigation tools ineffective against web attacks and require organizations to protect their applications both on-premises and in-the-cloud, said Carl Herberger, vice president of security solutions for Radware. “It’s not uncommon for enterprises to distribute their applications both on-premises and in-the-cloud. In addition, we see enterprises employ multiple cloud vendors to host various aspects of their infrastructure. However, having a disparate network infrastructure adds a level of complexity when trying to protect your web applications.”

The WAF Service provides a managed enterprise grade WAF that protects both on-premises and cloud-based applications, using a single technology solution. In addition to protection from various web attacks, the WAF Service can also defend and mitigate a wide range of DDoS attacks through its always-on DDoS attack protection, and provide detection and mitigation of attacks with minimal false positives, the vendor said.
