On Demand, Scalable Solution Addressing Current and Future Connectivity Needs

LinkProof is powered by the innovative On-Demand Switch platform. The On-Demand Switch delivers breakthrough performance and superior scalability to meet evolving network and business requirements. Based on Radware's On-Demand - "pay-as-you-grow" approach, no forklift upgrade is required even when new business requirements arise. This helps companies guarantee short-term and long-term savings on CAPEX and OPEX for full investment protection. LinkProof enables customers to pay for the exact WAN capacity currently required, while allowing them to scale their WAN throughput capacity and add advanced application-aware services on demand to meet new or changing WAN connectivity. And it does it without compromising on performance.

LinkProof is the only on demand solution that lets you effortlessly add, manage and load-balance multiple ISP connections while you mix-and-match VPNs or private and public links for back-up or in response to growing bandwidth needs.

Through its "Add-links-as-you-grow" approach, LinkProof allows you to add new links quickly to the existing connectivity solution as you grow your business, with no downtime or ISP involvement.

LinkProof provides the flexibility to build a best-of-breed WAN connectivity solution that keeps costs down and keeps customers and users always connected to business-critical applications and Web sites.

LinkProof provides a broad multi-WAN load balancing offering which is designed to cater to any market need, from the small branch office all the way up to the large enterprise.

With LinkProof, you can now utilize all of your existing links, guaranteeing you pay only for the bandwidth you require.

Business-Smart Multi-WAN Solution

LinkProof enhances user experience and improves response time, through patented proximity-based routing which ensures best path selection, dynamic application-based link load balancing of both incoming and outgoing traffic, and application bandwidth management. With LinkProof it is now possible to guarantee 24/7 full path transaction completion by utilizing its advanced application-aware full-path health monitoring module.

LinkProof also significantly reduces the management overhead and configuration hassle associated with other routing protocols, resulting in further significant cost savings. Superior user defined application-aware and business-oriented policies, guarantee each application is treated based on its specific requirements and priorities.

LinkProof supports a variety of bandwidth management and traffic-shaping capabilities to enforce Quality of Service (QoS) policies. These rules ensure that WAN links provide the required priority to specific application or user traffic so service level agreements (SLAs) can be met.

Deliver Reliable Remote Office Access from HQ to Branch

Developed as a remote application access solution for branch offices, LinkProof Branch ensures optimized application delivery across the WAN. It supports a server-less branch architecture providing the availability, performance and security required to interface with distributed applications at remote sites.

LinkProof Branch combines branch office Internet connection management, WAN acceleration and integrated VPN capabilities to provide remote users easier access to both web-enabled applications and distributed applications such as CRM, ERP, email and Oracle. Using any combination of public and private connections such as broadband, T1/E1 and Frame Relay, customers can optimize communications and dramatically cut connectivity costs.

Integrated Application-level Security

LinkProof's comprehensive security capabilities provide:

  • Denial of Service (DoS) protection
  • Bandwidth management and access control

LinkProof secures all enterprise entry points by providing denial of service (DoS) protection designed to insulate distributed applications, resources and users against attack. This mitigates a wide variety of vulnerability-based attacks (e.g., worms, Trojans, Bots), non-vulnerability threats and zero-minute attacks (e.g., application misuse attacks, application and network flooding).

Using the Bandwidth Management module, it is possible to isolate attacks, keeping firewalls, servers, databases and applications up and running. This ensures network availability for legitimate application traffic – even when under attack.

And when deployed together with LinkProof Branch, LinkProof provides optimal site-to-site availability, performance and security for remote offices.

APSolute Vision Centralized Management and Reporting

Radware's APSolute Vision provides the management interface for APSolute products. APSolute Vision offers centralized multi-device WAN link optimization management using an intuitive GUI interface. This lets network administrators proactively monitor WAN networks and quickly detect, isolate and resolve problems before they impact your business.
