Radware's DefensePro received the Tomorrow's Technology Today Award for Network Security Solutions as a result of its ability to protect data centers and networks from new hybrid attacks. DefensePro features several modules, including an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Network Behavioral Analysis (NBA), Denial-of-Service (DoS) Protection and Reputation Engine, which is based on standard signature detection technology to prevent known application vulnerabilities.

In addition, DefensePro offers Radware's emergency security service (ERT), a 24x7 service for customers facing DoS attacks or malware outbreaks. This key component provides instantaneous, expert security support to restore network and service operational status.
"Today's network security solutions must be ready to meet the threats and challenges of tomorrow, and the leadership and technologies we're seeing from Radware strongly positions DefensePro among the best," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Info Security Products Guide.
