Radware has expanded its cloud services offering by launching a fully managed DDoS protection service for applications hosted on Amazon Web Services AWS and will be available for applications hosted on Azure the second quarter of 2017.
Radware said that the new Cloud DDoS Service provides organizations that host their applications on a mix of on-premise and public cloud environments with unified DDoS protection that offers consistent security policies and a single pane-of-glass. This includes a single emergency response team and focal point, a unified web security portal, single reporting tool and single DDoS protection technology across premise- and cloud-based protections.
The company claims that existing anti-DDoS services for public-cloud-hosted applications provide limited protection, given that they focus on network-layer DDoS attacks, and lack protection from application- and SSL-based DDoS attacks. Radware’s solution goes further, defending against the more dynamic and sophisticated application-layer and SSL DDoS attacks as well, providing a wide attack coverage with a high level of protection accuracy. This also means that organizations will no longer bear hidden traffic costs and pay for attack traffic that would previously have reached their applications in the cloud.
Radware offers its services in two models: Always-On or On-Demand. In the Always-On Cloud DDoS Protection Service, the application's traffic is constantly routed through Radware's cloud scrubbing centers providing real-time attack detection and mitigation. The On-Demand Cloud DDoS Protection Service includes remote monitoring of the applications, automatic detection of a DDoS attack, proactive alerting to the customer, and automatic diversion to Radware's cloud scrubbing centers for real-time mitigation once an attack is detected.
