Application delivery and security specialist Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR) has confirmed the appointment of former F5 Networks (NASDAQ:FFIV) exec Adrian Crawley as regional director for the UK and Ireland.

Previous to Radware, Crawley was enterprise director as well as director for channels and service providers for F5.

“The application delivery and security markets present lucrative opportunities for our existing and prospective partners in the UK,” comments Yoav Gazelle, vice president for EMEA & CALA at Radware.

“The ADC market is continuing to grow steadily at seven percent year over year, while the DDoS mitigation market promises an even more exciting opportunity with over 25 percent growth predicted in 2014. We are confident that Adrian’s appointment will help Radware and our channel partners to take full advantage of these opportunities,” adds Gazelle.

“Radware has experienced accelerated growth in the US market in the last 18 months. In particular, our security portfolio has been a key contributor to that success,” says Crawley.

“This is an exciting time to join Radware and I hope to utilise my knowledge of the local market to replicate that same success for Radware and its partners in the UK and Ireland.”
