DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 6th October, 2015 -- A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN), a technology leader in application networking, today announced its participation at GITEX Technology Week 2015 and will showcase the company’s Thunder appliances, including Application Delivery Controllers (ADC) with SSL Insight and Threat Protection Systems (TPS) that ensure user-to-application connectivity is fast, always on, safe and secure.
Commenting on their participation at GITEX, Glen Ogden, Regional Sales Director for the Middle East region at A10 Networks, says, “Attacks are on the rise. For example, DDoS attacks are growing in severity and sophistication. Customers can avoid becoming another ‘attack statistic’ by building a robust DDoS security infrastructure that is capable of mitigating the largest multi-vector attacks at the network’s edge.”
The A10 Thunder TPS product line is the industry’s highest performing multi-vector DDoS detection and mitigation solution per rack-unit. Thunder TPS can mitigate attacks of over 200 million packets per second (PPS), and provides various deployment modes and the RESTful aXAPI to integrate into any network architecture.
The A10 Networks Thunder ADC product line’s SSL Insight feature eliminates the blind spot imposed by SSL encryption, offloading CPU-intensive SSL decryption functions that enable security devices to inspect encrypted traffic – not just clear text. Thunder ADC decrypts SSL-encrypted traffic and forwards it to a third-party security device like a firewall for deep packet inspection (DPI). Once the traffic has been analyzed and scrubbed, Thunder ADC re-encrypts it and forwards it to the intended destination.
“While the industry will continue to buzz about big data, cloud, mobile, social and IoT, I fully expect security to be at the top of the priority list of most CIOs and CTOs. GITEX provides us with the ideal platform to not only educate enterprises about these threats, but more importantly, to demonstrate how our solutions can help regional customers accelerate and secure their data centre applications and networks,” concluded Mr. Ogden.
A10 Networks is in the Network & Security Hall, stand D1-36.
