FireHost Selects Radware's Attack Mitigation System For Real-Time Network Attack Prevention

FireHostwill use Radware's AMS as a key IT security solution across its network of secure cloud servers

MAHWAH, New Jersey, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Radware [http://www.Radware.com ](R) (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery [http://www.radware.com/Products/ApplicationDelivery/default.aspx ] and application security [http://www.radware.com/Products/ApplicationNetworkSecurity/default.aspx ] solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced that global, secure cloud hosting provider, FireHost will now rely on Radware's Attack Mitigation System (AMS) for securing its network infrastructure and for providing real-time attack protection of mission-critical systems for its clients.

Radware will become the primary AMS system for Dallas-based FireHost, which specializes in protecting websites and applications of companies with compliance and high traffic needs, such as eCommerce, SaaS and healthcare IT providers. FireHost offers secure, scalable, usage-based hosting with enterprise-grade protection from data centers in Dallas, Phoenix, London and Amsterdam.

FireHost chose Radware's AMS to replace its existing infrastructure because it offered extremely rapid detection and mitigation of network attacks including denial of service (DoS), distributed DoS (DDoS), network and application-level flood and zero-day attacks. This capability allows FireHost to provide continuous uptime to its clients, even when they are under heavy attack from hackers.

"We are very excited by the opportunity to team with the market leader in secure cloud hosting," stated David Anderson, vice president, Radware. "The combination of the need to maintain business continuity of cloud provider services along with emerging network and application attacks, requires cloud service providers to guarantee their customers' data is safe, secure, and in compliance. The value proposition of Radware's joint solution meets FireHost's customer requirements for availability, performance, resiliency and security, and it provides a scalable cost-effective solution for future growth."

FireHost [http://www.firehost.com ] will use Radware's AMS as a key IT security solution across its network of secure cloud servers. Protecting sensitive data and brand reputations for companies of all sizes, including many Fortune 50, FireHost is well suited for hosting web applications and databases for companies with specific compliance needs, such as PCI and HIPAA. FireHost is also known for meeting high traffic and high availability requirements, such as for SaaS application providers and online retailers.

"Radware's Attack Mitigation System fits perfectly within our secure cloud hosting architecture. The ability to stop a variety of multi-level attacks at the edge of our networks in North America and Europe empowers FireHost to provide the best protection in the industry," said Chris Drake, chief executive officer, FireHost. "Our clients, especially those handling sensitive information such as credit card numbers and personally identifiable information, can rest assured that FireHost, backed by Radware AMS, expertly mitigates the threat of known and emerging attack vectors. Integrating Radware into our network architecture helps us achieve the goal of providing all FireHost customers with total peace of mind regarding their security, uptime, and performance. We look forward to a successful and long-lasting partnership."

About Radware's Attack Mitigation System (AMS)

Radware's AMS is a real-time network and application attack mitigation solution that protects the application infrastructure against network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, information theft, web service attacks and web defacement. Radware AMS uses various inspection and analysis modules that continuously monitor traffic, providing protection against a wide range of cyber attacks such as DoS, scanning and cracking protection, as well as capabilities that include intrusion prevention system (IPS), and Network Behavioral Analysis (NBA) to fully safeguard networks, servers and applications against known and emerging network security threats. It is built on Radware's award-winning DefensePro(R) network security appliance, AppWall(R) web application firewall and APSolute Vision(R) application and network security management dashboard.

Radware supplements these capabilities by adding the human factor - the professional security consultants of its Emergency Response Team (ERT) who are available around the clock. As literal "first responders" to cyber attacks, Radware's ERT members gained their extensive experience by successfully dealing with some of the industry's most notable hacking episodes, providing the knowledge and expertise to mitigate the kind of attack a business's security team may never have handled.
