Radware launches hybrid cloud based WAF service

Cyber attacks remain a persistent threat and have become sophisticated in size and scope. DoS, SQL injections and cross-site scripting are the most common web attack vectors, increasing in popularity. As migration to the cloud continues and expands, companies today are facing a more distributed network infrastructure.

This transition of web based applications to the cloud have rendered on-premise mitigation tools ineffective against web attacks and require organizations to protect their applications both on-premise and in-the-cloud.

At the RSA Conference 2015, Radware released a fully-managed, cloud-based Web Application Firewall (WAF) service. It provides a fully managed enterprise grade WAF that protects both on-premise and cloud-based applications, using a single technology solution.

“It’s not uncommon for enterprises to distribute their applications both on-premise 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” says Carl Herberger, VP of security solutions for Radware. “We have taken actionable steps to provide enterprise with a unified hybrid solution against web-based attacks regardless if protection is needed on-premise or in the cloud and provide better security when moving applications to the cloud as well as ease of security policy orchestration and automation.”

In addition to protection from various web attacks, Radware’s Hybrid Cloud WAF can also defend and mitigate a wide range of DDoS attacks through its always-on DDoS attack protection, and provide comprehensive detection and mitigation of attacks with minimal false positives and no impact on legitimate traffic.

The Hybrid Cloud WAF Service also provides full coverage from all of OWASP’s Top 10 security risks and is backed by Radware’s Emergency Response Team – a group of security experts that can actively monitor and mitigate attacks in real time.
