20 Dec 2013
Radware Ltd., incorporated on May 16, 1996, develops, manufactures and markets integrated networking solutions. The Company’s solutions include both Application Delivery and Network Security solutions. Its products and activities are focused on delivering availability, performance and security to enterprises’ and carriers’ data centers. The Application Delivery solution domain consists of simple load balancing application switches (Layer 4-7). The Network Security solution domain consists of firewall/Virtual Private Networks (VPN), Unified Threat Management (UTM), intrusion detection systems, intrusion prevention systems, network behavioral analysis (NBA) systems and Secure Sockets Layer/ Internet Protocol Security (SSL/IPSec) VPN appliances. During the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company released the VADI 2.0 offering, an extensive ADC Fabric solution extending itsVADI support for Virtual Data Centers and accelerated Application deployment. In 2011, it released Alteon 10000 chassis base solution and Alteon 5224 platform.
The Application Delivery solution domain is also referred to by select industry analysts as the Application Acceleration market. Its Application Delivery product portfolio consists of application delivery platforms, which offer, in addition to Layer 4-7 switching, benefits in terms of business continuity and resiliency, agility and efficiency by optimizing the delivery of applications across Internet protocol (IP) and Web-based networks. Among others, its products offer features, including Web application firewall, Extensible Markup Language (XML) validation, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Load Balancing, Application Program Interfaces (APIs), and content transformation, all of which are designed to meet complex networking infrastructure and data center demands.
The Company’s Network Security solution domain offering focuses on attack mitigation systems, which are in-line devices that monitor network and/or system activities for malicious or unwanted behavior and can react, in real-time, to block or prevent those activities. The Company’s Application Delivery and Network Security solutions enable customers to manage their network infrastructure, bypass systems failures, scale their application performance and secure their IP traffic.
The Company’s Alteon Application Switch Application Delivery Controller delivers a reliable Layer 4-7 switching and operation simplicity. Alteon Application Switch supports local, global and transparent load-balance and Application Acceleration, as well as multi-homing network load-balance and bandwidth management capabilities. Alteon ADC-VX enhances the Alteon Application Switch with the ability of executing multiple Virtual ADC instances (vADC) on the same ADC physical OnDemand Switch Hardware appliance, allowing its customers to consolidate multiple Physical ADC on a single Alteon ADC-VX.
The Company’s AppDirector Intelligent Application Delivery Controller (ADC) ensures delivery of mission critical data center applications, eliminating the costs of application downtime and service degradation while enhancing productivity. AppDirector provides for data center optimization with advanced Layer 4-7 policies and granular packet classification in order to eliminate traffic surges, server bottlenecks, connectivity disconnects and downtime for ensured business continuity. AppDirector also improves the response time of applications with several technologies for Web compression, caching, content acceleration, offloading intensive tasks from servers and optimizing bandwidth consumption.
Application Delivery Firewall/Gateway
The Company’s AppXML provides extensible markup language (XML) and Web services communications. The Company provides, such services for service oriented architecture (SOA) based mission-critical applications between an enterprise and its business partners.
The Company’s LinkProof manages multiple wide area networks (WAN) and Internet traffic for networks, referred to as multi-homed networks. These networks access the Internet through multiple connections through several Internet service providers, to provide fault tolerant, optimized performance and cost effective WAN connectivity.
The Company’s Content Inspection Director (CID) is its transparent, smart redirection and dynamic policy enforcement device. It is designed to meet contemporary carrier needs. Using a deep packet/flow inspection (DPI/DFI) engine, CID enables carriers and service providers to provide fast time-to-market and value-added service deployments. SIP Director is a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) SIP-aware application delivery controller for application vendors, telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) and system integrators (SIs).
Attack Mitigation (AM) Solutions
The Company’s DefensePro is a real-time network attack prevention device that protects the user’s application infrastructure against network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, network anomalies, information theft and other emerging network attacks at up to 12-Gigabit speeds. AppWall is a Web application firewall (WAF) appliance that secures Web applications. It enables Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance by mitigating Web application security threats and vulnerabilities to prevent data theft and manipulation of sensitive corporate and customer information. AppWall incorporates advanced, patent-protected Web application security filtering technologies to detect threats, block attacks and report events.
The Company’s Inflight is a hardware device that provides online, network-based monitoring solutions. Inflight delivers actionable, real-time business-level events to any back-end analytic system to optimize business processes and ensure compliance.
The Company’s APSolute Vision is an appliance-based management and monitoring system for information technology (IT) staff to centrally manage distributed devices and check the health, real-time status, performance and security of enterprise-wide application delivery infrastructures. The Company’s APSolute product suite is powered by the OnDemand Switch, its hardware platform, which provides on-demand throughput and service scalability. The Company’s products support a variety of IP-based applications, including Web services, e-mail, voice, Peer to Peer (P2P), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), network applications, such as Domain Name System (DNS), Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), mobile value added services such as Short Message Service (SMS), Multi Media Message Service (MMS), Wireless Application Protocol (WAP), and many others.
APSolute Vision is the management and monitoring tool for the APSolute family of application delivery and security solutions. It permits the setup, configuration and management of all its products from one central unified console. As the central element for the entire APSolute product family, APSolute Vision provides immediate visibility to health, real-time status, performance and security of enterprise-wide application delivery and network and application security infrastructures. The Company’s Virtual Application Delivery Infrastructure (VADI) architecture, which transforms computing resources, ADC and virtualization services into an integrated, agile and scalable on-demand application delivery infrastructure, is designed to bridge the underlying hardware resources and cater to the various application needs in terms of service level agreements (SLAs) and performance predictability, while delivering agility to the application delivery space. Its VADI transforms standard application delivery infrastructure into a virtual application delivery control plane, enabling easy and simple migration between the different ADC form factors, according to the dynamic performance needs of applications.
