Westcon To Distribute Radware's IP Load-Balancing Solutions


Westcon Inc. has signed an agreement to distribute intelligent traffic management solutions from Radware.

Westcon, a Nortel Networks-focused subsidiary of Tarrytown, N.Y.-based Westcon Group, will carry Radware's entire product line: FireProof, Web Server Director, LinkProof, Cache Server Director, Peer Director and the CertainT 100 SSL accelerator products.

Radware's products are designed to enhance the performance of firewalls and networks through intelligent IP load-balancing, said Anthony Daley, general manager of Westcon.

"Our solution providers are looking for products with high integration that offer scalable, value-added solutions that complement and enhance existing networks. Radware's Internet Traffic Management (ITM) provides effective load balancing for any network, however large or small," Daley said in a statement. "The result of this is a more secure network environment and better use of server resources, since traffic patterns become more predictable."

Radware selected Westcon as a distributor because of its focus in networking security solutions, said Vikram Desai, COO at Mahwah, N.J.-based Radware.
