Abstract:
In January 2019, Radware announced the acquisition of ShieldSquare, adding a cloud-based bot management service to its portfolio of web application security and distributed denial of service protection products. With the acquisition, Radware joins a crowded field of contenders made up of larger startups and big content delivery network and application security providers, such as Akamai and Oracle Dyn. ShieldSquare, a small startup based in India with about 75 customers, brings to the table synergies including cloud-based machine learning that complements Radware's own machine learning used to detect other types of web application attacks. It will also assist Radware's own move to deliver cloud-based WAF services. ShieldSquare also extends Radware's portfolio to provide protection for web application APIs and mobile applications. Attacks against both of those vectors are growing quickly and are expected to represent a much bigger target in the next few years.
