Hot Financial Stocks To Buy For 2021

Radware (RDWR) is an Israeli cyber security and application delivery solutions vendor for physical, cloud, and software-defined data centers. The company is a sister company to other RAD Group companies I follow, including Silicom (SILC) and RADCOM (RDCM), which I believe are well-managed enterprises with significant insider ownership from brothers Zohar and Yehuda Zisapel.

Speaking to the execution, Radware has largely completed a business model pivot to selling its security solutions via SaaS subscriptions which has resulted in a higher quality revenue stream and visibility. In addition, the company appears to be innovating and is winning highly contested bake-offs, evidenced by a $7 million deal with an APAC government military organization which CEO Roy Zisapel characterized as highly competitive. Mr. Zisapel suggested Radware won the deal based on an integrated product offering – a comprehensive solution – and a compelling value proposition for the buildout of a next generation network that required a high degree of availability, quality of service, adaptability, and security.
