RSA and Radware form partnership to develop stronger protection against malware

RSA and Radware have announced a technology partnership to provide stronger fraud protection for end-users against both information and identity theft.

The two companies have joined forces to build a proactive defence to more efficiently and effectively protect end-users against cybercrime. RSA will supply real-time online threat information identified by its FraudAction anti-phishing and anti-Trojan service to Radware's DefensePro real-time Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and DoS protection solution.

This will enable Radware DefensePro to proactively block Trojans, phishing attacks and the spread of malware at the network level using real-time signatures at one location.

According to the company, as a result managed security service providers, ISPs and any organisation that provides security at the network level will now be able to offer enhanced anti-Trojan and anti-phishing protection to their own customers, enhancing value through to the end-user.

Avi Chesla, vice-president of security at Radware, said: “This new phishing and Trojan protection capability we are presenting in the IPS market takes existing IP and web reputation services into a more advanced stage to fight the most emerging threats.

“Working with RSA enables Radware to leverage its network security solution for MSSPs by turning RSA feeds into real-time signatures employed by Radware's DefensePro and to help proactively prevent information and identity theft without human intervention. Current static signature detection technology offers protection against old attacks. Leveraging our real-time signature technology with RSA feeds provides a way to immediately react and fight emerging threats.”

Sam Curry, vice president of product management at RSA, said: “Forming this technology partnership with Radware demonstrates how inventive collaboration can further extend our ability to protect customers against escalating online threats. We must continue to grow a stronger security ecosystem in order to become a more effective and organised entity against the vast underground network of fraudsters.”
