MAHWAH, New Jersey, November 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announces it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers[1].

Gartner, Inc. is the world's leading information technology research and advisory company and is known as the definitive source of objective technology thought leadership. This year's report authored by Gartner analysts Joe Skorupa, Neil Rickard and Bjarne Munch, defined usage of Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) with enterprises "to optimize reliability, end-user performance, data center resource use and security for a variety of enterprise applications." The full Gartner report can be accessed here.

In order to be included into the 2012 Magic Quadrant for ADCs, Radware was evaluated by Gartner on a set of criteria that included how well the product addresses the needs of the enterprise, the breadth of features, performance, and scalability of the product as well as support for ADCs and virtualized ADC platforms. Also evaluated was Radware's capability to understand the buyer's needs and translate this into products, services and business benefits.

Gartner defines a leader in the ADC Magic Quadrant as exhibiting "the ability to shape the market by introducing additional capabilities in its product offerings, and by raising awareness of the importance of these features. Key capabilities for a Leader revolve around the AP ADC capabilities that focus on enterprise application capabilities."

The definition additionally states, "We expect a Leader to have strong or growing market share, especially in the AP ADCs, and to have solutions that resonate with an increasing number of enterprises. Expertise in complex data center application deployment is also necessary to be a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for ADCs."

Avi Chesla, chief technology officer, Radware, says "Organizations are constantly faced with frequent changes to their configuration and the need to consolidate their ADC hardware devices. Keeping this challenge in mind and assisting our customers to do more with less, we offer a simple and cost-effective way to run multiple virtual instances on a dedicated platform."  

"By consolidation, we are able to significantly reduce not only hardware costs, but lower operational expenses as well. Our recent position as a 'leader' in the ADC magic quadrant, shows our unwavering commitment to ensure customer satisfaction. It is a privilege to have Gartner recognize us in this latest report," adds Chesla.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.

Containers are changing the security landscape for software development and deployment. As with any security solutions, security approaches that work for developers, operations personnel and security professionals is a requirement. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Kevin Gilpin, CTO and Co-Founder of Conjur, will discuss various security considerations for container-based infrastructure and related DevOps workflows.
Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings.
