Radware DefensePro

As we know today’s Organizations have a big security concern. Signatures are very important to mitigate various types of attacks. Many vendors provide security solutions like NGFW (Next-Generation Firewall), IPS, and IDS. Mostly server-side, and client-side attacks are identified by the signatures. Every Security vendor has an internal Malware Analysis, Incident Response, and Threat Hunting team. That is research on malware and different types of attacks and creating signatures to provide security to clients using vendor devices. Nowadays keeping the signature database up to date is a very important task for IT Administrators. In this blog, I will show you how to update the Radware Devices Signature database via APSolute Vision. We are using Radware DefensePro to demonstrate this process.
