Radware’s AppDirector appliance uses advanced Layer 4-7 policies and granular application intelligence for end-to-end business-smart networking. AppDirector aligns server infrastructure operations with application front-end requirements to eliminate:
- Traffic surges
- Server bottlenecks
- Connectivity disconnects
- Network downtime
This assures application access, full application continuity and redundancy. Radware AppDirector enables fine tuning of network behaviour based on granular application-specific classification of packets to optimise traffic flows for a wide range of enterprise applications such as Microsoft, Oracle, BEA, IBM, SAP and other web-based applications including support for VoIP, streaming media and secure LDAP applications.
The Radware Alteon Application Switch is a multi-application switching system designed to allow enterprises to prepare their networks for business applications and maximise the return on their existing investment in servers and networks. This is achieved through Radware Alteon’s application intelligent traffic management, integrated application support, and sophisticated security features.
Radware Alteon switches also allow service providers to efficiently enable differentiated services for their enterprise customers. As enterprises move towards converged networks and increasingly use business applications to drive efficiency, IT departments must support increased network traffic and server load while maintaining QoS and facing numerous security challenges. In the past, IT departments could use brute force solutions to solve common problems – adding more bandwidth to relieve congestion, adding more servers to improve application performance, or buying more equipment than needed to meet future growth in data traffic.
Radware’s AppWall is a web application firewall (WAF) appliance that secures web applications. It enables 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 seamlessly detect threats, block attacks and report events. Radware AppWall improves the security and availability of business-critical web applications and creates a higher return on investment (ROI) for web-based applications.
Designed specifically to help customers tackle the challenges of deploying web services and service oriented architectures (SOA), AppXML is an appliance that couples our APSolute application delivery platform and Forum Systems’ industry-leading XML Sentry software. It improves the speed of XML document processing and secure XML-based communications by offloading tasks to dedicated hardware.
Radware AppXML functions as a trusted intermediary for exchanging secure web services between an enterprise and its business partners. By adding a layer of infrastructure between the network layers and applications, it simplifies, secures and accelerates XML and web services deployments helping enterprises to achieve a higher ROI.
Radware LinkProof is a multi-WAN load balancer that lets organisations maximise the effectiveness of their WAN by bypassing bottlenecks and service-provider outages, managing bandwidth consumption, and letting you decide which links are used for which applications, and when.
LinkProof is powered by Radware’s innovative On-Demand Switch platform. The On-Demand Switch delivers breakthrough performance and superior scalability to meet evolving network and business requirements. LinkProof enables customers to pay for the exact WAN capacity currently required, while allowing them to scale their WAN throughput capacity and add advanced application-aware services on demand to meet new or changing WAN connectivity. And it does it without compromising on performance.
Radware Content Inspection Director
Content Inspection Director (CID), Radware’s transparent smart redirection and dynamic policy enforcement device 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 value-added services deployments.
CID also allows service providers to gain additional CAPEX/OPEX reduction by designing the network to operate with average load instead of peak loads. Radware’s on-demand ‘pay-as-you-grow’ approach enables carriers to increase throughput from 0-16Gbps without replacing hardware, thus simplifying implementation without compromising business availability or performance.
Application and Network Security
Radware’s award-winning DefensePro is a real-time network attack prevention device that protects your application infrastructure against network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, network anomalies, information theft and other emerging network attacks.
Radware DefensePro includes a set of security modules – Intrusion Prevention System IPS), Network Behavioral Analysis (NBA), Denial-of-Service (DoS) Protection and Reputation Engine – to fully protect networks against known and emerging network security threats. It is based on standard signature detection technology to prevent the known application vulnerabilities. The core of DefensePro is patent protected behavioural based real-time signatures technology that detects and mitigates emerging network attacks in real time such as zero-minute attacks, DoS/DDoS attacks and application misuse attacks. All without the need for human intervention and without blocking legitimate user traffic.
