 Radware, a leading provider of cybersecurity and application delivery solutions, announced Tuesday the addition of three new scrubbing centers in Israel, Brazil and India. 
These new facilities support customer growth in emerging markets where there is a need for data residency, as well as complement the existing network of scrubbing centers providing the company's Cloud DDoS Protection Service, Radware said in a press release.  
“Data residency is becoming an increasingly important issue,” said Gabi Malka, Chief Operating Officer for Radware.  “As more countries implement data privacy laws, organizations are looking for secure solutions that keep their customers’ data within their geographical borders. By expanding our geographic footprint, we can provide our customers in key emerging markets with secure, low latency solutions that keep their data within their country of origin, as well as terminating attacks close to their origin.”
Malka added, “The addition of new scrubbing centers furthers the momentum of our cloud strategy by providing localized support to growth regions for Radware.  Local scrubbing enables us to increase both our customer coverage and customer experience.”
Radware's announcement noted that DDoS attacks are constantly becoming more sophisticated as hackers are looking beyond basic volumetric network-layer attacks and deploying new, more advanced attack vectors, threatening organizations’ service and application availability. 
According to the company, Radware’s Cloud DDoS Protection Service protects customers from even the largest and most sophisticated DDoS attacks, such as randomized and reflective DDoS attacks, burst DDoS attacks, SSL floods, IoT botnet DDoS attacks, and other advanced attacks, helping organizations guarantee service availability and ongoing service to customers. 
The cloud scrubbing network serving Radware’s Cloud DDoS Protection Service is based on the company's DefensePro DDoS mitigation appliance. The company's latest DefensePro devices analyze traffic patterns, such as sudden and massive spikes, to provide automated, behavior-based protection from fast moving, high volume, encrypted or very short duration DDoS attacks, Radware said. 
Radware’s corporate headquarters is in Mahwah, NJ, while its international headquarters is in Tel Aviv, Israel.
