SAFEWEB TEAMS WITH RADWARE TO DELIVER THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF SECURITY, PERFORMANCE AND NETWORK SERVICE

Emeryville, CA - December 9, 2002 - SafeWeb, Inc., a leading provider of secure remote access technologies and Radware, Inc., (Nasdaq: RDWR) the leader in Intelligent Application Switching, today announced a strategic partnership to provide the highest degree of security, performance, availability and reliability for securely accessing remote networks.

This partnership results in the seamless integration of SafeWeb's Secure Extranet Appliance (SEA Tsunami) and Radware's Cache Server Director (CSD), enabling customers to scale their extranets by clustering SafeWeb's SEA Tsunami servers to handle large traffic with high availability and redundancy. Radware's CSD will monitor the health of the SafeWeb SEA Tsunami servers and automatically route traffic to another server if one fails. Administrators can also remove SafeWeb SEA Tsunami servers from the cluster for maintenance at any time without affecting client requests.

"The SEA Tsunami eliminates traditional financial and technical barriers that limit secure remote access to a fraction of potential remote users," said Jon Chun, SafeWeb's CEO. "In extending secure remote access to a far greater number of remote users, SafeWeb relies on Radware to ensure scalability, reliability and deliver high performance."

SafeWeb's SEA Tsunami is an SSL-based VPN that enables companies to quickly and easily build extranets so that remote users can securely access internal network resources using just a Web browser. Because the SEA Tsunami is a clientless VPN appliance, it seamlessly integrates with Radware's CSD without requiring any changes to existing networks. The United States Naval Medical Information Management Center (NMIMC) is currently using the SEA Tsunami and Radware's CSD to provide its remote employees with reliable secure access.

"The Navy was in need of a low cost secure remote access solution that would enable users to access resources situated behind our firewall. We implemented SafeWeb's SEA Tsunami in a matter of hours," Lieutenant Nickerson, head of security for NMIMC. "Our remote users are now able to access resources, that were previously only accessible from homebase, from any Web browser. This effort combined with Radware's CSD results in a reliable, low-cost solution that load balances servers with secure remote access."

This partnership is effective immediately. For more information contact [email protected] or [email protected]
