Radware Named Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for ADC

September 08, 2016

Radware, a provider of application delivery and cyber security solutions for virtual, cloud and software defined data centers, announced this weekend that it was named a Leader for its Application Delivery Controllers in Gartner’s September, 2016 Magic Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers (ADC).

This is exciting news for Radware, as being included in the Leaders Quadrant means that the company executes well against their current vision and is positioned for the future. This is high praise from a company like Gartner, and from the sound of it, Radware deserves the recognition.

“We believe that Radware’s continued recognition in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers is proof-positive of our commitment to the ADC category, especially in the face of rapidly changing needs in IT Infrastructure,” said Sharon Trachtman, Chief Marketing Officer for Radware. “Companies turn to Radware because they require their mission critical business applications to be available and performing optimally at all times. The combination of Radware’s strong architectural approach, the powerful security integrations, and the advanced customization, automation and programmability of Radware’s offerings are what keep our customers up and running.”

They have been recognized by Gartner multiple times, largely in part for their next generation ADC because it is the only ADC that guarantees application service levels with the ability to assign a fully isolated vADC per application or service. Alteon NG offers high vADC density and has an impressive set of integrated security capabilities, including DDoS, SSL inspection, WAF, device/user fingerprinting and defense messaging capabilities.

The company is also incredibly versatile. It includes application performance monitoring (APM), single sign-on (SSO), web application firewall (WAF), advanced Denial of Service (ADoS), multi-homing/enterprise gateway and web performance optimization (WPO) capabilities as advanced services within their ADC technology. Their application delivery architecture supports SDN and NFV environments to meet the ever-changing data center environment requirements. Radware also combines with infrastructures such as Cisco's ACI, VMware NSX, OpenStack, Ansible, Chef and Puppet.

Radware’s placement in the Leaders Quadrant can really be summed up by a quote from Trachtman, who said, “We are dedicated to delivering the most advanced, agile and powerful solutions in the industry no matter how standard, hybrid or cloud-based an infrastructure may be.” With that sort of attitude, it’s no wonder that Radware has been recognized by Gartner on several occasions.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
