Radware, a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, announced that one of the world’s major equipment manufacturers has chosen Radware for its Cloud DDoS Protection and 24X7 Emergency Response Services. After falling victim to the Fancy Lazarus extortion group’s sophisticated DNS flood attack and ransomware scheme, the company turned to Radware for help.
Skilled in dealing with complex attacks, Radware deployed its Emergency Response Team. Within a few hours, Radware’s scrubbing centers were mitigating threats and protecting traffic from the customer’s global data centers.
“Ransom DDoS attacks have become a persistent part of the threat landscape. Yet many companies don’t have the bandwidth to handle the surge in traffic generated by large, globally distributed attacks,” said Haim Zelikovsky, Vice President of Radware’s cloud services business. “With our emergency on-boarding services, experienced engineers step in with real-time intelligence to offer customers immediate assistance in combatting attacks and restoring operations. Quicker time to protection translates to less disruption to end users and the business as well as mitigates reputational damage to brands.”
Throughout 2021, Radware has been rapidly onboarding new customers that are facing DDoS ransomware threats. Recently, the company published a cybersecurity alert warning that Fancy Lazarus, a well-known DDoS extortionist, had resurfaced with a new campaign focused on organizations with unprotected assets.
Radware was ranked a global leader in Forrester’s March 2021 report, “The Forrester Wave: DDoS Mitigation Solutions, Q1 2021.” The company’s Cloud DDoS Protection Services offers accurate detection and real-time protection against today’s most dynamic and damaging DDoS threats.
