Global SD-WAN provider Aryaka and cybersecurity and application delivery firm Radware are partnering to offer multi-layer application security and distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack detection and mitigation capabilities for its global enterprise services.
DDoS attacks are becoming increasingly frequent, more sophisticated and larger in size. They are used not only to wreak havoc and cause downtime on their targets’ websites and systems, but also as a means to make financial or political gain, and can produce accidental side effects.
“Many enterprises lack resources and in-depth unique security skill sets required for addressing DDoS attacks. In addition to that, DDoS attacks continue morphing, which makes it even harder to protect against” Gary Sevounts, chief marketing officer at Aryaka, told RCR Wireless News. “The next layer of data protection and threat mitigation is provided by Aryaka’s ecosystem of industry-leading security partners, such as Radware. Radware’s family of DDoS security solutions provides integrated application and network security for Aryaka’s best of breed, multi-layered security architecture and DDoS attack prevention,” he added.
Radware will bring a suite of DDoS protection techniques and web application security provisions to a layer of Aryaka’s global private network. Business that moves through the private network does not get exposed to the public Internet or have entry points that malicious threat actors could exploit. Aryaka’s second layer is enterprise-grade end-to-end encryption.
Radware’s hybrid DDoS mitigation services integrates always-on detection and mitigation (on-prem or in the cloud) with cloud-based volumetric DDoS attack deterrence, scrubbing and round-the-clock Emergency Response Team (ERT) support. Radware will also bring its patent-protected behavioural based detection service to Aryaka, which protects legitimate traffic and real-time signature creation for zero-day attack protection.
Aryaka’s services are deployed by over 800 global enterprises and has the quickest growing SD-WAN solution in the market, which the company describes as “the only viable MPLS replacement solution” for businesses seeking alternatives to legacy WAN infrastructures for application delivery.
Furthermore, Aryaka just unveiled PASSPORT, a new multi-layered security platform and ecosystem, which draws on not only its partnership with Radware, but also Palo Alto Networks and ZScaler to offer “a platform with unified, best-of-breed global SD-WAN and security solutions that are affordable and accessible to all global enterprises.”
Aspects of the new Aryaka PASSPORT service include:
- The traffic of Aryaka’s customers will move through dedicated, not shared, layer 2 links with end-to-end encryption;
- Edge devices from Aryaka will offer built-in sophisticated security measures, including integration with Next-Generation firewalls from Palo Alto Networks;
- Industrial-grade security provisions, including on-premises, cloud-based and other cloud service models.
- A layer of cloud security will be added, allowing non-critical traffic to travel over the Internet with partnerships provided by Palo Alto’s Global Protect Cloud Services and ZScaler Cloud Security.
Aryaka, Zscaler, Radware, and Palo Alto Networks will support a wide range of different use cases, allowing organizations to gain the benefits of cloud-native private connectivity, SD-WAN, application acceleration, and advanced security solutions with no additional costs and without adding network complexity.
