Radware Joins OpenDaylight Project

opendaylight

Radware, an Israeli firm that provides application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, has been contributing to the OpenDaylight Project, a cloud based network management system.

Serious programmers know the value in open source codes and systems. Some firms will only use Linux because it is open source. This makes it easier to uncover virus and hacks since everything about the operating system is made public. This in turn discourages malicious hackers from attempting to upload Linux based Viruses.

OpenDaylight is a collaborative project and an open platform for network programmability to enable SDN and NFV for networks at any size and scale under The Linux Foundation.

The company’s contribution comes with its Defense4All, an SDN application that provides DoS and DDoS protection as a native network service for Helium.

Helium is the second software release from the open source OpenDaylight community that is collaborating to build an open, common platform for SDN and NFV. The software has evolved to include 11 new protocols, applications and technologies making it the most flexible and inter-operable platform available.

Radware’s Defense4All offers carriers and cloud providers DoS and DDoS detection and mitigation as a native network service. Utilizing the OpenDaylight SDN Controller that programs SDN-enabled networks to become part of the DoS/DDoS protection service itself, Defense4All allows operators to provision a DoS/DDoS protection service per virtual network segment or per customer.

“We are pleased to be part of OpenDaylight and are committed to strengthen this partnership by releasing new features for Defense4All that will further enhance this project, ” said David Aviv, vice president, advanced services, Radware, in a statement.

“As security should be an integral part of the network services rather than being hosted by the network, operators can provision a DoS/DDoS protection service per virtual network segment or per customer, reducing both time and cost.”

“Security is a key driver for SDN and Radware has been actively participating in the OpenDaylight community to enable its security technology to work with a wide range of environments, ” said Neela Jacques, executive director, OpenDaylight Project. “It’s contributions like this that demonstrate how OpenDaylight is becoming the de facto standard platform for the industry. We applaud their efforts and look forward to their continued contribution to the community.”
