Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, announced the launch of new cloud security centers in Melbourne, Australia, Toronto, Canada, and Auckland, New Zealand. The facilities will reduce traffic latency as well as increase service redundancy and mitigation capacity to help customers defend against denial-of-service attacks, web application attacks, malicious bot traffic, and attacks on APIs. It will also help them increase resiliency and comply with offshore data routing requirements.
In addition to Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, the company recently launched security centers in Chile, Italy, Taiwan, and the United Arab Emirates. The launch of the new facilities extends the company’s mitigation capacity to 12Tbps across a network that is made up of more than 50 security centers worldwide.
“We continue to invest in cloud security, expanding our global mitigation capacity and regional growth opportunities,” said Haim Zelikovsky, vice president of cloud security services for Radware. “The recent enhancements we’ve made add to our already strong cloud presence and frictionless, state-of-the-art security experience.”
The growing network increases the company’s footprint so that cyberattacks are mitigated closest to their point of origin and provides truly global mitigation capable of absorbing even the largest volumetric attacks. According to Radware’s Q3 2022 DDoS and Application Threat Analysis, the number of malicious DDoS events climbed 279% and 84% more web application attacks were mitigated compared to the same period in 2021.
