Radware, a provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, today announced a multi-million dollar deal with a global financial information technology provider based in North America.
The deal is a complete ADC and Attack mitigation as a subscription deal and includes both software and hardware components. This transaction will practically double Radware’s Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) from this customer. It includes Radware’s new Global Elastic License (GEL) subscription in combination with Radware Attack Mitigation, and Application Delivery Appliances.
The customer is upgrading its attack mitigation and application delivery and application security capabilities to protect its global infrastructure and increase the efficiency with which it processes a high volume of transactions each day.
With this upgrade, Radware provides the customer with an unlimited number of application delivery controller (ADC) instances, and web application firewall instances with real time flexibility to provision, scale and decommission instances all within a total global capacity.
This customer returned to Radware when it planned to upgrade its systems based on a longstanding history of demonstrated value. Radware’s GEL was a key factor in this competitive win. GEL enables high levels of flexibility for ADC services across datacenters, private cloud and public clouds such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, IBM Softlayer and Google Cloud.
Through dynamic ADC capacity allocation, this customer will have the ability to move capacity across environments, allowing the use of capacity when and where it’s needed without having to invest in a dedicated ADC infrastructure for each location where the organization’s applications are deployed, increasing efficiency and reducing expenditures. Additionally, this financial information services provider has upgraded its attack mitigation infrastructure to ensure that they are efficiently protecting their network from the most advanced threats.
“As customers are on a journey of transitioning from legacy data centers to new cloud technologies and public cloud, the Radware solution provides them the key values of availability, performance, security, now with full investment protection and complete flexibility to the changing form factors and environments, said Roy Zisapel, President and CEO of Radware. “It’s a true win-win that enables the customer to serve their changing business requirements and gain more value form their investments.”
