Radware Awarded Contract to Upgrade Existing Network Protection System for a Leading U.S. National Cellular Network Provider

December 4, 2012

MAHWAH, New Jersey, December 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Radware [http://www.Radware.com ](R) (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application
delivery [http://www.radware.com/Products/ApplicationDelivery/default.aspx ] and
application security
[http://www.radware.com/Products/ApplicationNetworkSecurity/default.aspx ] solutions for
virtual and cloud data centers, announced a contract award from a national mobile
communications carrier in the U.S. for its Attack Mitigation System (AMS) to protect
against known and emerging network security threats.

This current contract award is part of a multi-million dollar enhancement to its
capabilities, in order to provide secure internet access and mitigate DoS based attacks on
internal customer-facing networks throughout multiple locations in the United States.

The national mobile communications carrier selected Radware’s AMS because of its
ability to support both behavioral-based and signature-based protections, known as the
Network Behavioral Analysis (NBA) module.

Radware employs a patented behavioral-based real-time signature technology that
creates baselines of normal network, application and user behavior. When an anomalous
behavior is detected as an attack the NBA module creates a real-time signature on- the-fly
that uses the attack characteristics and start blocking the attack immediately, all
without the need for human intervention and without blocking legitimate user traffic. In
case of DDoS attacks, it injects the real-time signature into the DME hardware offloading
the main CPUs from the excessive unwanted traffic.

Along with NBA, Radware’s AMS includes the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). A module
based on stateful static signature detection technology with periodic signature updates
and emergency updates in case of newly discovered high risk attacks, as well as
Denial-of-Service (DoS) Protection and Reputation Engine to fully protect networks against
known and emerging network security threats.

“We are pleased to continue a strong relationship with our customer and value the
trust they’ve placed with Radware,” says Mark McIlvane, vice president, Carrier Sales,
North America, Radware. “Today’s threats have increased and constantly test the
vulnerability of a network. However, we are confident that our customer will be able to
maintain their IT infrastructure as our Attack Mitigation System contains a multi-layered
approach in order to combat these attacks and ensure network availability.”
