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 announces the introduction of DefensePro(R) x420, the next-generation hardware platform in the company's flagship DefensePro application security suite.

With the ability to handle 25 million packets per second of attack traffic, regardless of packet size, as well as up to 40Gbps of legitimate traffic, DefensePro x420 offers the world's highest mitigation capacity and is designed to protect organizations from the industry's highest volume denial-of-service

(DoS) and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.

"Today's attacks destroy customer experience and have the potential to take down systems for weeks on end," says Avi Chesla, chief technology officer, Radware.

"As organizations are overwhelmed by crippling network and application level attacks, industry demands have called for a more powerful, high-capacity solution. Our response is DefensePro x420, which is agnostic to packet size and capable of separating legitimate and non-legitimate traffic between hardware components. It is also part of the Radware Attack Mitigation System (AMS), which is the most advanced attack mitigation solution available on the market today."

Additional industry-leading attack mitigation features of Radware's DefensePro

x420 solution include:

- High Throughput Processing: Critical to the demanding nature of today's

online businesses, DefensePro x420 offers performance throughput of up to 40Gbps.

- Complete Separation of Legitimate and Attack Traffic Processing: Unique to

Radware's solutions, DefensePro is able to identify and separate legitimate and

illegitimate traffic and handle each traffic type by a separated processing hardware.

This ensures that the quality of experience for a legitimate user is never diminished

or compromised, even during a massive application layer attack.

- Industry Exclusive 40G Ports: Recognizing the evolution of data centers,

Radware has armed the DefensePro x420 with both 10G and 40G ports to support current

and future networks.

- Critical Component of Radware's Award Winning Attack Mitigation Solution

(AMS): Radware's AMS includes integration of critical inspection and analysis modules,

including Anti-DoS, Network and Application Behavioral Analysis (NBA), IPS, Web

Application Firewall (WAF) and reputation engine capabilities that continuously

monitor traffic, providing protection against a wide range of cyber attacks and fully

safeguarding networks, servers and applications against known and emerging network

security threats. DefensePro also uses patent-protected behavioral based real-time

signature technology to detect and mitigates emerging network attacks in real time.

- Major Enhancements to Challenge-Response Rate: Connection-based application

DDoS attacks are on the rise with a greater application transaction attack rate than

ever. Radware's DP application challenge response mechanism can now perform up to

multi-million application challenge /sec. Thus, applications are quickly and

effectively shielded from the most intense, high-volume application level DDoS


DefensePro x420's high capacity performance metrics cater to the needs of the world's largest online businesses and service providers. With x420, these businesses now have access to the DefensePro family's first-class capabilities, at the largest scale they require.

Additionally, as DefensePro has the highest mitigation performance in the market, telecommunications companies, carriers and managed security providers that offer DDoS protection to customers can now provide extensive cloud scrubbing centers- eliminating the need to deploy multiple devices and enhancing cloud and hosting cost structures.
