MAHWAH, N.J.; Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Radware (Nasdaq: RDWR), the leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced that New York Law School, the second oldest independent law school in the U.S., has integrated its LinkProof® load balancing solution into its online course management system, BlackBoard. By deploying LinkProof, New York Law School enables students, faculty and administrators to maximize daily productivity by providing them continuous access to online educational resources and coursework.

Network disruptions and connection failures initiated New York Law School's interest in implementing Radware's LinkProof system. The multi-WAN load balancer allows the school to divert network traffic issues, by circumventing network bottlenecks that are often caused by service-provider outages, or a mismanagement of users' bandwidth consumption. Additionally, LinkProof offers an 'on demand' feature, which plays a key role in allowing IT administrators to add, manage and load-balance multiple Internet service provider's connections, in response to growing student, faculty and administrative bandwidth needs.

"Since we installed LinkProof, our students and faculty has been able to conduct day-to-day activities and research without any interruption," said Joseph Compagno, Director of Strategic Infrastructure Development, New York Law School. "It has allowed us to offer expanded web hosting capabilities, which has resulted in greater streaming and cloud computing opportunities, and a higher level of user satisfaction."

Since deploying LinkProof, New York Law School has significantly reduced its management overhead and has been able to streamline the configuration of its network protocols, resulting in further cost savings. Another added benefit includes enhanced network security capabilities, which alleviate a wide variety of vulnerability-based attacks (e.g., worms, Trojans, Bots), non-vulnerability threats and zero-minute attacks (e.g., application misuse attacks, application and network flooding) via its Intrusion Prevention module.

"Working with New York Law School, we were able to provide a flexible load balancing solution that enhanced service by offering network stability of its online and wireless Internet traffic," said Eitan Bremler, Product Marketing Manager, Radware. "Radware has worked vigorously to develop its sophisticated LinkProof product, which enabled New York Law School to eliminate the concern of its network going down, or stopping the flow of learning and business activities."

By utilizing its proximity-based routing, LinkProof ensures best path selection, dynamic application-based load balancing of both incoming and outgoing traffic, and application bandwidth management. As a result, it has the ability to guarantee full path transaction completion.

New York Law School worked with Prevalent Networks, an IT consulting company that works with the leaders in governance, risk, infrastructure, and compliance to deliver solutions that create "information anywhere, security everywhere"™.

"Prevalent Networks selected Radware for NYLS' key WAN solution because of their scalability, redundancy, and WAN optimization features," stated John Polise, Regional Director. "Radware has proven itself with one of the best WAN load balancing solutions on the market with a highly trained support staff to assist."

Radware's LinkProof solutions are part of the Company's Business-Smart Data Center strategy, which is based on an approach to offer a range of innovative capabilities inclusive of pay-as-you-grow procurement models and a series of compelling 'on demand' platforms.
