Brinkster Selects Radware AMS
By Rahul Arora
Radware (News - Alert), a provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, recently revealed that its Attack Mitigation System (AMS) has been selected by hosting and cloud service provider Brinkster. The solution will protect Brinkster's customers against sophisticated, multi-vectored cyber attacks.
The Radware Attack Mitigation System offers both attack detection and mitigation technologies on a single platform. The system protects application infrastructure to prevent network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, information theft, Web service attacks and Web defacement. With the Radware AMS, security professionals can identify bots that imitate real user application transactions and block them in real time. The AMS scrutinizes what is happening on the network and uses challenge/response techniques to block malicious traffic without accidentally dropping legitimate activity
"Radware is pleased to have been chosen to partner with Brinkster. Our technology is ideally suited to securing cloud and multi-tenant hosting environments, and we believe that with AMS protection, Brinkster can fulfill its network uptime guarantee to its customers, even if its data centers fall prey to attacks," said Amir Peles, Vice President, Technology, Radware. "Small businesses and enterprise customers that depend on Brinkster can rest assured that they are protected by the leading attack mitigation solution available."
Designed for online businesses, large enterprises, carriers, data centers and managed service providers, Radware's AMS is built on Radware's award-winning DefensePro network security appliance, AppWall Web application firewall and APSolute Vision 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.
"Radware's Attack Mitigation System is the leading perimeter protection solution for safeguarding businesses against an increasingly complex landscape of multi-vector availability-based threats, - including zero-day attacks that would defeat traditional intrusion prevention technologies," said Nathaniel Kemberling, Brinkster's CTO. "The Radware system mitigates both known and new forms of attack while allowing legitimate business traffic to be handled as normal, so the business continuity of our hosted cloud customers is preserved even while under attack. Brinkster customers can be assured that their cloud-hosted data and their businesses that depend on it are secure and available."
