Radware, a leading provider of cybersecurity and application delivery solutions, has secured a multimillion-dollar deal expanding its partnership with one of the top five largest telecommunications companies worldwide. By strengthening its relationship with the telecom giant, Radware continues to build on its industry-leading offerings in the field of cybersecurity.

The anonymous telecom company made a substantial investment in Radware’s DefensePro DDoS Protection, a powerful defence system against sophisticated cyber threats such as high-volume, encrypted, and zero-day attacks. Comprising hundreds of thousands of employees, this telecom company offers a broad range of services, including fixed-line, mobile, and internet services to consumers and businesses in over 50 countries.

With the rising demand for such services, this telecom company has chosen to increase the use of Radware’s DefensePro to ensure service availability and minimise any false positives. Further to this, the company has implemented Radware’s Alteon application delivery controller. This system helps manage application traffic, optimises application availability and performance, and keeps the company's applications and data secure.

Yoav Gazelle, Radware’s Chief Business Officer, commented on the expanded customer relationship. "Our strong technical delivery and the close ties we’ve built over the years have served as the foundation for this expanded customer relationship," Gazelle said. "We understand the careful balance between meeting user demands for more data and connectivity and providing the advanced security needed to protect infrastructure from increasing cyber threats. It’s why the world’s leading telecoms continue to choose Radware as their security partner.”

The DefensePro DDoS defence uses advanced behavioural algorithms to detect and block malicious traffic accurately. This allows the uninterrupted availability of services and protects networks from today's most damaging cyber threats like Burst, DNS, DDoS, and encrypted Web DDoS attacks. It also guards against ransom DDoS campaigns, IoT botnets, phantom floods, and other cyber threats.

This enhanced cybersecurity offering highlights Radware’s international reputation as a leader in its field. The company has been recognised by multiple industry analysts, including Aite-Novarica Group, Forrester Research, Gartner, GigaOm, KuppingerCole, and Quadrant Knowledge Solutions. With numerous awards accredited to its name for DDoS mitigation, application and API protection, web application firewall, and bot detection and management solutions, Radware consistently proves its prowess in cybersecurity.

Radware aims to secure the digital experience by offering infrastructure, application, and corporate IT protection, along with availability services for global enterprises. The solutions empower clients to adapt to market challenges swiftly, maintain business continuity, and achieve maximum productivity while keeping costs down. The recent expansion of its partnership with this leading telecom company underscores Radware's continuing commitment to providing robust, leading-edge cybersecurity solutions across the globe.
