A10 Networks Review



A10 Networks is more of a cloud and service-related company than a regular hosting company from what I see they are focused more on mid to large size businesses over the small business or personal websites, they boast companies like box, Comcast, GE Healthcare, Deutsche Telekom, Samsung, Linkedin, Yahoo, Alibaba, KDDI, Godaddy, Huffpost, Windows Azure, and many more Fortune 500 companies rely on A10 Networks to protect their businesses, which although they offer cloud services I believe their main focus is keeping business safe in the Cloud and 5G environments. They are a San Jose, California company, and here are some stats about the company, and other information that we pulled off their website for you.

Public Cloud and Private Cloud Application Traffic Management for security, performance and availability

With the rise of mobility and globalization, application service infrastructures no longer reside in data centers alone. Modern apps are increasingly housed in public, private, and hybrid clouds, forcing application traffic management to evolve. Traffic management is now required to perform a growing number of demanding tasks to ensure fast response and scalable content availability with unrelenting application security.

Operational Inefficiencies Impact Customers and Services

Deploying and managing advanced load balancing solutions across multiple data centers and multi-cloud environments can be challenging. Lack of centralized management and unified policy control can stretch IT teams to the limit with an overwhelming amount of manual tasks, limited visibility, and security challenges.

Lack of Visibility

Visibility is more crucial now than ever before with application deployment across multiple environments. Enterprise applications require constant monitoring and deep visibility to provide faster troubleshooting. Monitoring application performance, security, and user experience are impossible without complete insight into your application.

Management Complexity

Applications are no longer bound to a single data center and may have conflicting policies across different locations. Without a singular view, it is impossible to streamline management tasks and manage complex, consistent security policies across multi-cloud and hybrid environments.

Manual Operations

Manual systems require your teams to spend extraordinary effort on maintenance rather than applying resources to strategic programs. With applications located across multiple environments, an enormous amount of manual tasks are required to manage and provide services to consolidate core business capabilities

Load Balancing Solution

Service Downtime is Costly

With the rise in user mobility and demand, application service infrastructures no longer reside in data centers alone. Modern apps are increasingly housed in public clouds, private clouds, and hybrid clouds, forcing application traffic management to evolve for a better user experience.

Slow Apps & Downtime

Today’s application traffic is mostly encrypted with SSL/TLS and growing rapidly. Demand continues to grow and users expect a fast application response at all times. Organizations are required to build reliable and scalable application services to sustain user traffic even during service maintenance. Traffic management is critical in avoiding costly downtime for business applications.

Application Threats

Regardless of location, either on-premises or in the cloud, your applications are at high risk of being compromised. There are numerous types of application fraud, exploits, and attacks for many different purposes, and protection strategies can vary. Organizations must have a comprehensive application protection solution to defeat emerging attack types in any environment.

Multi-Cloud Complexity

Many businesses are steadily adopting cloud services and architectures, running their applications across multiple public, private and hybrid clouds. The common issues of such operations are not only deployment complexity, due to incompatibility of the underlying infrastructure, but also the lack of a single pane of glass for traffic management and policy control.

Global Server Load Balancing

Grow Beyond Infrastructure Limitations

A global server load balancer should expand server load balancing functionality across global data centers for high availability, fault tolerance, and the best user experience. You can provide a better experience to your customers through global network intelligence to select the best site for each user request while safeguarding your network for disaster recovery.

DDoS Threat Intelligence

Proactive approach with research, leveraging reputation data from over three dozen security intelligence sources to instantly assess and block traffic from millions of known DDoS weapons.

Globally Distributed Weapons

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are growing in frequency, intensity, and sophistication, but their delivery methods are unchanged. Infected internet bots and vulnerable servers continue to create attacks of crushing scale against unprepared targets. These bots and servers are the weapons used repeatedly in multiple DDoS attacks. Global distribution of these internet zombies and exposed servers, easily exploitable as reflected amplifiers, sit idle, waiting to be called into action.

What is DDoS Threat Intelligence?
Security researchers accumulate threat intelligence from tens of millions of internet compute hosts that are vulnerable and exploited as DDoS attack weapons. DDoS threat intelligence is the information gleaned from the repeated use of attacking agents combined with the knowledge of vulnerable IP addresses and hosts. This information provides security researchers the ability to proactively improve DDoS defenses. Visit The DDoS Weapons Map

Improve Response Times

Respond faster to known DDoS weapons including vulnerable amplification reflectors and internet bots.

Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS)

Distributed Denial of Service Attacks has emerged as one of the most effective, yet least understood Cybersecurity threats today. The lack of open dialog deepens the confusion and helps the attacks to succeed.

This book reveals the hard-earned lessons drawn from the authors’ years of engagements in DDoS detection and mitigation – from hyper-scale cloud providers to boutique shops. Protect your clouds NOW.

The Majority of what is written in this post is basically just pulled from their site more or less for you to have an idea of what they do although they technically are a cloud/5g service provider they are more focused on security and traffic management.
