Spark Taps Radware to Drive Network Security Services

Spark New Zealand

Radware®, a provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, and Spark NZ, one of New Zealand’s largest digital services providers, have signed a partnership agreement to offer application and network security services in New Zealand.

Based on the new agreement, Spark will resell Radware’s portfolio of application and network security solutions in New Zealand. The portfolio of solutions includes Radware’s Cloud Application Protection Services, Cloud DDoS Protection Service and DefensePro® DDoS Protection.


In addition, Spark will deploy Radware’s Cloud DDoS Protection Service as part of the organisation’s existing IT systems and protections, which uses advanced behavioral algorithms to detect and mitigate layer 7 DDoS attacks.

According to Patric Balmer, Spark’s Managed Security Service Provider lead, “We know cybersecurity is increasingly critical and can be complex as many organizations in New Zealand continue to face challenges in effectively detecting and responding to threats due to their growing complexity and the resource shortages in the cybersecurity industry. Radware’s security solutions combined with Spark’s managed security services offer continuous access to cutting-edge expertise and technology, all while ensuring adherence to the highest security best practices and compliance standards.”

Spark Picks Radware

Radware’s and Spark’s partnership is backed by Radware’s worldwide cloud security network. In January 2023, Radware opened a new cloud security service center in Auckland to support Radware customers doing business in New Zealand and across the broader APAC region. Today, Radware’s network is made up of more than 50 security centers and delivers an attack mitigation capacity of 12Tbps. The network is designed to mitigate DDoS attacks closest to their point of origin and provide global DDoS mitigation capable of absorbing even the largest volumetric attack.

“We are proud to partner with Spark to provide its customers with access to a rich portfolio of application and network security services,” said Yaniv Hoffman, Radware’s vice president of APAC sales. “Our new partnership with Spark is designed to deliver the ultimate scalability, flexibility, and reliability that today’s organizations demand from their cyber protection.”
