LifeWay Christian Relies on Radware’s Application Delivery Services to Support its Rapidly Growing e-Commerce and Corporate Networks

October 18, 2010

MAHWAH, N.J., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ — Radware (Nasdaq: RDWR), a leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced that long-time customer, LifeWay Christian, continues to rely on Radware’s multi-WAN load balancer, LinkProof(®), for its application delivery needs. LinkProof supports the Company’s e-commerce and corporate websites with the consistently reliable performance levels necessary to maintain its global networks.

Amid increasingly strong demand for its products and rising amounts of web traffic through a variety of web servers, LifeWay Christian turned to Radware to support its load balancing needs. By leveraging the Radware’s LinkProof solution, the organization is able to seamlessly secure its multiple Internet circuits and provide an uninterrupted web browsing experience that is needed for its customers and necessary in maintaining daily operations. Additionally, due to the reliable bandwidth of LinkProof, multiple circuits are able to join together in an effort to allow for advanced flexibility. Even when an Internet Service Provider (ISP) has crashed, the websites are still able to function due to the solution’s load balancing capabilities on the other circuit.

“With more than 25 percent of our business conducted over the Internet, it was essential that we find a solution that could provide our customers and employees with a hassle-free network experience,” said David Elliot, advanced systems administrator, LifeWay Christian. “After implementing LinkProof throughout our operations, we have substantially reduced costs and have increased the amount of site traffic we’re able to handle at any given time.”

A Radware customer for more than eight years, LifeWay Christian provides a variety of resources for churches including Bibles, literature, books, music, audio and video recordings, church supplies, and Internet services. LinkProof supports the Company’s nearly 14,000 concurrent connections and uses its ability to balance multiple ISPs, which provides a higher level of availability and security without affecting customers or staff.

“Our solutions are designed to help organizations like LifeWay Christian increase their Internet bandwidth and minimize the threat of network downtime,” said EJ Easton, Vice-President Sales East Region, Radware. “At Radware, our goal is to provide reliable, affordable solutions so that any company or organization can deliver the type of network service that is necessary for maintaining a successful business.”

LinkProof is powered by the innovative On-Demand Switch® platform, which delivers breakthrough performance and superior scalability to meet evolving network needs. LinkProof enables customers to pay for the exact WAN capacity currently required, while allowing them to scale their WAN throughput capacity and add advanced application-aware services on demand to meet new or changing WAN connectivity.

Radware’s solutions are part of the Company’s Business-Smart Data Center strategy, which is based on an approach to offer a range of innovative capabilities inclusive of pay-as-you-grow procurement models and a series of compelling ‘on demand’ platforms.
