Gartner, Inc. is the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company. It offers world-class, objective insight on virtually any area of IT. Gartner’s Magic Quadrant research methodology provides a graphical competitive positioning of four types of technology providers in fast-growing markets: Leaders, Visionaries, Niche Players and Challengers.
“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.”
Radware’s comprehensive technology portfolio includes a full suite of appliances, software solutions, virtual licensing, cloud and OTT cloud services that ensure businesses see an optimal application service level delivery and receive a fast return on their investment in any network configuration.
Radware’s next generation application delivery controller (ADC) 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 a deep set of integrated security capabilities, including DDoS, SSL inspection, WAF, device/user fingerprinting, and defense messaging capabilities.
Radware’s unified management and orchestration framework for ADC and security technologies provides customers with a full array of models from production level testing/evaluation software versions on up to carrier-grade platforms.
Radware 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. Radware application delivery architecture supports SDN and NFV environments to meet the evolving data center environment requirements. Radware also integrates with industry-leading infrastructures, including Cisco’s ACI, VMware NSX, OpenStack, Ansible, Chef and Puppet.
The company has also offered for more than half a decade a ‘pay-as-you-grow’ software upgrade model for its platforms, which has extended over the years to other products in its portfolio to ensure customers enjoy the best price-to-performance solutions to meet growing and not stagnant or locked-in bandwidth needs.
Trachtman added, “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.”
The description for the leaders quadrant according to Gartner is as follows: “a Leader exhibits the ability to shape the market by introducing capabilities in its product offerings and by raising awareness of the importance of these features. Key capabilities for a Leader in this market revolve around enterprise application functionality. We expect a Leader to have strong or growing market share and to have solutions that resonate with an increasing number of enterprises. We expect Leaders to release ADC capabilities (deployment models, features, pricing models and so on) well in advance of mainstream enterprise demand. A Leader must exhibit expertise in complex enterprise application environments and offer a range of deployment models.”
