FREMONT, CA: Switch has recently announced to leverage Radware’s DDoS Mitigation System and scrubbing center capabilities for its renowned SUPERNAP data centers and Switch SAFE set of products. Through this venture, Switch is aiming to shield its customers from DDoS attacks by ensuring cyber security.  

“As the world’s best colocation data center provider, we want to provide our customers with the highest quality cyber-attack protection available today,” said Switch Executive Vice President of Connectivity Chris Donnelly. “With Radware’s Attack Mitigation System, we can maintain business continuity for our customers even in the face of a volumetric attack.”

From start-ups to Fortune 500s, Switch’s customers need protection from every type of DDoS threats with a quickest time to mitigation. Capable of managing attacks of up to 300Gbps and 220 million packets-per-second from a single device, Radware’s DDoS solutions deliver the most scalable attack mitigation platform.

“We generally look at DDoS attacks across three parameters; duration, size, and complexity,” said Carl Herberger, VP, Security Solutions, Radware. “When attacks exceed customers’ inbound traffic volume, we use our cloud based scrubbing to mitigate risks outside of the customer’s network regardless of their duration and size, and without requiring redirection of all traffic.”      

Radware’s North American scrubbing center is installed within SUPERNAP data centers to protect them against cyber attacks. The customers can detect and mitigate network application violations, including low, slow, and encrypted attacks through Radware’s Attack Mitigation System (AMS). These are supported by the added capacity of Radware’s DefensePipe globally distributed DDoS mitigation network.    

“By selecting Radware’s Attack Mitigation System, Switch can detect, mitigate and scrub nearly every type of cyber-attack with precision and accuracy,” said Radware Vice President of Sales, West, Bob Simpson. “Automated attack mitigation allows Switch to mitigate multiple attacks of varying types simultaneously, without their customers ever experiencing a disruption.”
