A leading provider of international cyber security and application delivery solutions, Radware, has announced the launch of new cloud security centres in Auckland, Melbourne and Toronto.
The company says 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, Radware said in a statement.
In addition to Australia, New Zealand and Canada, Radware recently launched security centres 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 centres 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.”
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.
“The launch of the new security centers is part of Radware’s global cloud backbone and reinforces our commitment to prioritise security for customers not only in Australia and New Zealand, but also across the broader region,” said Graeme Pyper, regional director for Radware in Australia and New Zealand.
“Ramping up our presence will enable customers to address security issues at their source and mitigate large volumetric cyberattacks more quickly.”
