Yesterday, cybersecurity provider malwareannounced that Ukraine’s State Service for Special Communications and Information Protection (SSSCIP) is using Radware’s Cloud DDoS Protection and Cloud Web Application Firewall (WAF) service to protect itself amid the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine.

The Ukrainian SSSCIP is responsible for protecting Ukraine’s state information resources and will use Radware’s services to protect the country against known and zero-day DDoS and application attacks.

“Our main priority is to protect the IT infrastructure in Ukraine,” said Victor Zhora, deputy head of SSSCIP Ukraine. “Radware has helped us secure our networks, protect our applications, and strengthen the resiliency of our IT infrastructure.”

This partnership highlights that application-level and DDoS attacks remain one of the most significant threats facing modern organizations, not only in the context of the Russian-Ukrainian cyber war, but more broadly as part of the community. cyber criminal.

Protect the cloud from cyber warfare

The partnership announcement comes as Ukraine has been the target of a high volume of cyberattacks since the start of the Russian-Ukrainian war, which began with a series of distributed attacks. Denial of service (DDoS) attacks attributed to Russian state-sponsored threat actors.

SSSCIP is using Radware services in an attempt to increase its resilience against these types of advanced attacks targeting Ukraine’s cloud services.

“Using the right level of protection, it’s possible to defend against very advanced, high-volume attacks, whether they originate from hacker groups or nation-state actors,” said Radware’s chief commercial officer, Yoav Gazelle.

When it comes to defending against advanced attacks, Gazelle stresses that protection solutions must go beyond traditional negative-based and rate-limiting security models, and instead use machine learning to automatically detect and mitigate complex attacks in real time.

“This is especially important today with the cybersecurity talent shortage facing organizations around the world. Organizations cannot rely on solutions that require manual configuration and signature creation and must implement automated solutions,” said Gazelle.

When mitigating DDoS attacks, Gazelle recommends that companies implementing protection solutions look for vendors that can mitigate both volumetric attacks and low-volume micro-flooding, burst attacks, and encrypted attacks, which are designed to bypass their defenses.

The Application Protection and DDoS Market

Considering that the average cost of a DDoS attack in the US it is $218,000 and 60% of organizations report that they do not have moderate confidence in their ability to manage attack surface riskIt’s no surprise that more organizations are beginning to invest in DDoS and application protection solutions.

Today both the DDoS protection Y application security markets are in a state of growth, with the former expected to grow from $3.3 billion in 2021 to $6.7 billion by 2026, and the latter expected to rise from $6.2 billion in 2020 to $13.2 billion by 2025.

Radware is one of the key vendors benefiting from this growth, grossing $286.5 million in income last year, but it is not the only one. He is also competing against cloud flarewhich offers a DDoS protection service that protects websites and applications.

Cloudflare has been recognized as a Leader in the 2019 ‘IDC MarketScape: Worldwide DDoS Prevention Solutions’ and 2017 ‘Forrester Wave: DDoS Mitigation Solutions’. It also recently reported that it raised $656.4 billion in total income in 2021.

Similarly, Akamai is also a key player in the space, offering DDoS protection as part of its edge and security computing solution, Akamai Edge Security, which offers over 200 tbps of additional network capacity to help organizations increase your resilience against DoS attacks.

Earlier this year, Akamai announced that it had raised $3.5 billion in income during 2021.

Although Gazelle says that Radware’s use of unique algorithms and machine learning techniques set it apart from other vendors on the market, by allowing users to continue using normal application services without degradation, even during severe attacks.
