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. Radware’s Cloud DDoS Protection Service 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.”
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 global 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.

Spark is one of New Zealand’s largest telecommunications and digital services companies and provides services to a wide range of leading New Zealand organizations through Spark Business Group – which unites Spark’s services with its specialist businesses, CCL, Qrious, and Digital Island. Spark’s purpose is to help all of New Zealand win big in a digital world.
