MAHWAH, New Jersey, October 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Radware®(NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced that, Asiasoft Online Pte Ltd, has selected Radware's award winning Attack Mitigation System (AMS) security solution to address its expanding network security needs including improved protection against a range of sophisticated, new-generation cyber threats.
Asiasoft Online Pte Ltd (Asiasoft) is the Singapore subsidiary of Asiasoft International Co. Ltd, a leading Massively Multiplayer Online Games (MMOGs) publisher and service provider in South East Asia region with presence in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and Philippines serving over 49.5 million registered gamers.
"We frequently endure cyber attacks in many different types of complexity," said Darren Lim, Information System Assistant Manager at Asiasoft. "We need a cyber attack mitigation service that provide viable solution against these attacks."
Asiasoft chose Radware's AMS based on performance, attack detections, and its mitigation capabilities that suits their needs in keeping their game services alive even during cyber attacks.
"Asiasoft's requirement is more stringent than other types of cyber attack defense," continued Darren Lim, "we have to allow legitimate users into the network and still be able to play games during an attack. Radware's AMS has no problem with false positives and latency during mitigation."
Another important part of the AMS is Emergency Response Team (ERT). Radware's ERT consist of professional security experts who are trained to assist customers who are under attack by hackers. The service is available to paid customers on a 24/7 basis.
"We find that their ERT is very impressive" Darren Lim added "During any cyber attack towards our network, their Radware's team members has never failed to support us in identifying types of attack and providing effective ways to counter them as quickly as possible."
According to a new report by Radware's ERT, cyber attacks have evolved in sophistication with attackers using as many as five different attack vectors in a single "attack campaign." Moreover, denial of service (DoS) and distributed DoS (DDoS) attacks have become more complex to defend against as hackers can probe enterprises for weaknesses and launch multiple types of attacks, according to Radware's "2011 Global Application and Network Security Report."
"We have proven once again that Radware's AMS is effective against growing online threats," said Yong Chuk Ping, Director of Asean at Radware, Singapore. "It is a combination of the best of breed technology and 24/7 instantaneous access to a team of knowledgeable and specialized experts. Radware's AMS customers can have the ease of mind that during an attack, they will not be left alone."
