INTRODUCTION
 
This Specialized Disclosure Report on Form SD (this “Form SD”) of Radware Ltd. (“Radware,” the “Company”  or “we”) for the year ended December 31, 2017 is presented to comply with Rule 13p-1 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Rule”).
 
The Rule was adopted by the SEC to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to “conflict minerals” originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (collectively referred to as the “Covered Countries”), as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.
 
In connection with the Rule, we have adopted a policy with respect to our sourcing of conflict minerals. The full text of our Conflict Minerals Policy is available on our website at https://www.radware.com/corporategovernance/conflictminerals/. The content of any website referred to in this Form SD is included for general information only and is not incorporated by reference herein.

Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure
 
Item 1.01 – Conflict Minerals Disclosures and Report
 
In accordance with the Rule and our Conflict Minerals Policy, we have evaluated our current product lines. As more fully described in the Conflict Minerals Report, filed as Exhibit 1.01 hereto (the "Conflict Minerals Report"), our supply chain is very complex and, despite having conducted a good faith reasonable country of origin inquiry ("RCOI"), we currently do not have sufficient information from our suppliers or other sources to determine the country of origin of the conflict minerals used in our products or identify the facilities used to process those conflict minerals. Therefore, we cannot rule out the possibility that some conflict minerals in these products did, or may have, originated in the Covered Countries and are not from recycled or scrap resources. Accordingly, as required by applicable SEC rules, we have also conducted certain due diligence activities, as more fully described in the Conflict Minerals Report. These due diligence efforts have been conducted in parallel with our RCOI and, as such, there is significant overlap between our RCOI efforts and the due diligence measures we employed.
