Radware Improves Nedstat’s Ability to Deliver End-Users’ Online Purchasing Data to Its Customers
MAHWAH, New Jersey, October 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Radware , the leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced Nedstat, a European leader in website analytics, has improved application delivery performance, availability and security, with an advanced combination of Radware load balancing and management solutions. With this impressive mix of Radware technologies, Nedstat delivers timely end-user Website statistics to its customers; helping them streamline and grow their online businesses.
A vital partner to many online businesses, Nedstat provides business-critical Website analytics, including end-user buying behavior, online advertising effectiveness and marketing performance - to increase online conversions and enhance a company's overall website presence.
With more businesses going online to drive sales, Nedstat's ability to deliver this data became crucial to its overall success. To ensure the high availability of this information, Nedstat needed a solution that would ensure server and application availability by adding more data center capacity and would address potential server performance issues, response-time bottlenecks and security risks - both now and in the future.
After a thorough evaluation of prospective vendors, Nedstat chose Radware, deploying its OnDemand Switch and AppXcel(TM) Application Delivery Controller (ADC) solution for global load balancing, and Insite(TM) for centralized management and reporting with its rich graphical profiling and monitoring capabilities. With this powerful solution combination, Nedstat sought to enhance server availability, performance and conduct ongoing server maintenance - for example, handling heavy data from secured ecommerce measurements - without server downtime or over-taxing its server environment.
Leveraging Radware's OnDemand Switch, a sustainable throughput switch with on-demand scalability, Nedstat has been able to increase throughput levels - based on business demand - without the need to swap-out existing IT hardware infrastructure. When paired with AppXcel, Nedstat gained transaction reliability, cost-effective scalability and fast end-to-end performance acceleration of web and secure socket layer (SSL)-based applications, which increase translation response times.
Radware's technology grouping also provided Nedstat a fully integrated intrusion prevention and behavioral-based Denial of Service (DoS) protection suite, which insulates data center applications and server resources against application-level attacks and zero-day DoS attacks.
Working in tandem, this impressive combination delivers a comprehensive and scalable set of application acceleration, optimization and security services.
"The high availability as provided by Radware equipment allows Nedstat to improve performance towards customers, even when doing maintenance on our servers," said Fred Appelman, Chief Technology Officer, Nedstat. "The SSL offloader provides excellent scaling that fits integrally in the load balancers and can be centrally managed through an easy to understand interface. The new Radware load balancers and SSL offloaders provide Nedstat with a flexible solution to cater for our future growth."
"To ensure the high availability of Nedstat's applications, we created a strong solution combination to offloaded SSL and persistent functions from servers, freeing-up significant server CPUs to better handle requests and support application processing requirements, without the need to buy additional hardware," said Roberto Neisser, Regional Director RoE, Radware. "As a result, Nedstat has gained greater transaction scalability and security - which is important in delivering the best customer data, now and tomorrow."
