Radware’s Attack Mitigation System Helps Installazioni Impianti Ensure Business Continuity and Defend Against Malicious Network Attacks
Leading security solution helps IT infrastructure provider increase customer satisfaction and profitability
MAHWAH, N.J.; December 19, 2011 - Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centres, today announced its award-winning, real-time network Attack Mitigation System (AMS) has been deployed by Installazioni Impianti, one of the largest technology and infrastructure design firms in Italy.
Installazioni Impianti turned to Radware to improve its business continuity program, especially protection for its mission-critical systems for customers involved in high–risk, security-focused environments such as defence agencies, public authorities, airports, hospitals and financial services. The company specializes in providing remote building surveillance systems, access control, intrusion detection systems, remote monitoring, data transmission and geographical networks for public administration and private firms.
After comparing several alternative solutions, Installazioni Impianti chose Radware AMS because it offered a holistic network security approach delivered through a fully integrated attack mitigation system rather than adding more point security tools. Not only does this reduce capital expenses, it also saves on operational expenses by reducing the complexity of collecting data and managing the system.
More importantly, the holistic approach of Radware AMS provides an additional level of protection at the network perimeter to defend against increasingly complex multi-vector attacks. These are the new generation of cyber-attacks that strike network IT assets at multiple layers, employ large scale botnet attacks, or are launched by sophisticated attackers that imitate real users in order to misuse services and application resources.
“With Radware’s Attack Mitigation System, we are able to design, configure and implement a solution of logical security specially targeted to the needs of the most critical areas of public administration, particularly for public safety,” said Ing. Alessandro Cattani, general manager, Installazioni Impianti S.p.A. “This implementation allows us to effectively defend our systems from possible cyber-attacks, ensuring both operational and data protection.”
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. It contains a protection layer with security modules including Denial-of-service (DoS) protection, Network Behavioural Analysis (NBA), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Reputation Engine and Web Application Firewall (WAF) to fully safeguard networks, servers and applications against known and emerging network security threats.
The solution also contains built-in Security Information Event Management (SIEM) that collects and analyses events from all modules to provide an enterprise-wide view of situational awareness along with unified monitoring and reporting. This protects against vulnerabilities at critical points across the infrastructure. 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 defending against some of the industry’s most notable hacking episodes, providing the expertise and experience to mitigate the kind of attack a business’s security team may never have handled.
“By implementing Radware AMS into the Installazioni Impianti network, we were confident we could address their security concerns, all the while assuring high performance levels,” said Alberto Prandini, Regional Director Italy, Greece and Cyprus, Radware. “Radware AMS provides companies the assurance that they have a trusted partner to help them meet the evolving cyber-attack landscape, who can deliver a distinct competitive advantage and uninterrupted, safe networking experiences.”
