In order to be included into the 2012 Magic Quadrant for ADCs, Radware was evaluated by Gartner on a set of criteria that included how well the product addresses the needs of the enterprise, the breadth of features, performance, and scalability of the product as well as support for ADCs and virtualized ADC platforms. Also evaluated was Radware’s capability to understand the buyer’s needs and translate this into products, services and business benefits.

Gartner defines a leader in the ADC Magic Quadrant as exhibiting “the ability to shape the market by introducing additional capabilities in its product offerings, and by raising awareness of the importance of these features. Key capabilities for a Leader revolve around the AP ADC capabilities that focus on enterprise application capabilities.”

The definition additionally states, “We expect a Leader to have strong or growing market share, especially in the AP ADCs, and to have solutions that resonate with an increasing number of enterprises. Expertise in complex data center application deployment is also necessary to be a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for ADCs.”

Keeping this challenge in mind and assisting our customers to do more with less, we offer a simple and cost-effective way to run multiple virtual instances on a dedicated platform.”
