MAHWAH, NJ: Technology solutions company Switch has announced the implementation of Radware’s DDoS Attack Mitigation System (AMS) within its futuristic SUPERNAP data centers. With hundreds of clients ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies, Switch required a solution capable enough to deal with the increasing DDoS threats. Radware’s holistic DDoS solution uses volumetric DDoS attack mitigation and Internet pipe saturation strategy to secure clients against DDoS threats and vulnerabilities.

In case of a DDoS attack, the traffic is rerouted to DefensePipe, a cloud based scrubbing center, where it houses an AMS for moderating risks and vulnerabilities. Radware’s North American scrubbing center, instated within the SUPERNAP data centers, is equipped with the capacity to neutralize DDoS threats up to 300Gbps and 220 million packets-per-second from a single device.

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

Radware’s Attack Mitigation System supported by DefensePipe scrubbing centers located around the globe ensures Switch protection against varied DDoS threats including network and application attacks, low and slow and encrypted attacks. Radware also provides 24/7 Emergency Response Team (ERT) assistance for hands-on attack mitigation assistance during prolonged, multi-vector attacks.

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