Device fingerprinting technology implemented in Radware’s Attack Mitigation System tracks end user behavior to accurately identify malicious devices
Radware, a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, has announced enhanced protection from threats posed by advanced bots through its Attack Mitigation System. This major enhancement will enable Radware in helping its customers track end user devices without the need for Internet Protocol (IP) address. Fingerprinting technology is used to precisely identify application users or website visitors who have a history of malicious behavior, and are often part of a botnet.
RAH Infotech, India’s leading tech distribution major focused on Enterprise & Application Security and Application Delivery, is a distributor of Radware products in India. It adds value to its partners and resellers by distributing the entire product line of Radware which helps the customers through Load Balancing and ADoS (Advanced Denial of Service) & DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) protection.
Mr Ashok Kumar, MD and CEO, RAH Infotech says, “Bots generally plague businesses that conduct a high volume by exhausting application resources, scraping sensitive information from websites illegitimately and seeking vulnerabilities through application logic abuse. In order to protect applications from advanced bots or even collective human threats, website operators need more advanced user/client identification that can detect and block illegitimate users.”
Most security threats today use bots and other traffic sources that can avoid detection by imitating user behavior, dynamically changing the source IP addresses or operating behind anonymous proxies and content delivery networks. To help combat this threat, Radware’s Attack Mitigation System has been enhanced with technology that can track and precisely detect malicious end user devices regardless of the source IP address.
Mr Nikhil Taneja, Country Manager and Regional Director, India and SAARC Radware says, “Device fingerprinting introduced in Radware’s Attack Mitigation System suitemakes use of proprietary trackingto generate device reputational profiles. These combined with other information based on behavioral history can be effective in the detection and mitigation of threats such as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), intrusions and fraudsters alike.”
Mr Ben Desjardins, Director of Security Solutions, Radware says, “With the proliferation of devices driven by the Internet of Things (IoT) and users operating multiple mobile devices more than ever before, the challenge of device identification continues to increase exponentially. Our device fingerprinting technology gives online businesses a powerful tool in combating the threats posed by the difficulties of accurate device and user detection.”
Device fingerprinting can also facilitate the identification of spiteful users accessing the Internet through Network Address Translation (NAT) devices that lead to many devices sharing the same IP address, and anonymous proxy services that make it gruesome to block IPs without potentially blocking legitimate users/devices.
Device fingerprinting further augments the Radware Attack Mitigation System, an award-winning solution to protect an enterprise’s infrastructure against network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, network anomalies, information theft and other types of attack.
