To solve these challenges, Yes Satellite selected Radware’s ADC solution for its advanced global load balancing and on-demand scalability features that ensure the availability and fast responsiveness of its VOD service with minimal latency to give customers the best quality of experience. Also, with AppDirector’s advanced Layer 4 through 7 policies and granular application intelligence for end-to-end networking, Yes Satellite could eliminate traffic surges, server bottlenecks, connectivity disconnects and server downtime in order to enable the service’s access, continuity and redundancy.
Yes Satellite also chose Radware’s AMS to protect its application infrastructure against network and application cyber threats. Yes Satellite had been the target of several cyber attacks in the recent past that included network scans and DNS floods. Yes Satellite went with Radware’s AMS, the industry’s first fully integrated IT security strategy and portfolio, because of its success protecting user’s application infrastructure in real time against network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, information theft, web service attacks and web defacement. Radware’s AMS provides the most comprehensive solution to fight multi-vulnerability campaigns that are hard to defend against because they are aimed at multiple layers in the IT architecture, particularly at network infrastructure equipment, servers and applications.
Radware supplements these capabilities by adding the human factor – the professional security consultants of its Emergency Response Team (ERT) who are available around the clock. As literal "first responders" to cyber attacks, Radware’s ERT members gained their extensive experience by successfully dealing with some of the industry’s most notable hacking episodes, providing the knowledge and expertise to mitigate the kind of attack a business’s security team may never have handled.
"Delivering video streaming applications through our VOD service required highly-available bandwidth, advanced global load balancing and integrated security. A critical point in our decision was being able to achieve this through a single vendor, and Radware gave us that option," said Moti Stambulchick, head of infrastructure, Yes Satellite. "Radware’s AppDirector keeps our VOD customers’ services always on; and if there is a business continuity issue, it automatically redirects traffic to the nearest available data center, so there is no interruption in service. Also, Radware’s AMS automatically detects and blocks any security threats including DNS floods or network intrusion, providing an end-to-end system management solution."
The solution delivered a cost-effective, highly-scalable system to support increased bandwidth traffic and network security without the need to add hardware. Not only has Radware’s AMS already detected and mitigated cyber attacks on the Yes Satellite network, the combined solution is delivering best quality experience to Yes Satellite VOD subscribers while saving Yes Satellite nearly 40 percent in deployment costs.
