“Predict and prepare.” These two words effectively encapsulate A10 Networks’ journey in the world of cybersecurity. With the intuitiveness to predict the evolving threats and the ability to develop solutions to address them, A10 Networks has emerged as the cybersecurity vanguard, helping companies keep the threats at bay. Not to mention, the company is led by Lee Chen, CEO, A10 Networks, a visionary who warned that cryptocurrency motivated attacks would increase in 2018. While Chen’s predictions have come true, his company is helping organizations tackle this menace by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.
A10’s cutting-edge security portfolio is geared to address more such threats in the wake of the digital technology boom driven by cloud, IoT, smart cities, and mobile networks. Constantly updating its solution suite, the company empowers clients to be one step ahead of the cyberattackers. To elaborate, the recently introduced A10 DDoS Protection Cloud solution offers full-spectrum cloud scrubbing that improves the detection of malicious network traffic in the enterprise cloud network. Another recent addition to A10’s solution suite is the One-DDoS Protection which efficiently handles threats with firewall and takes advantage of machine learning and AI to fight against new hacking methods that exploit bots. “Making sure we utilize cyber threat intelligence to tackle cyberattackers allows us to update our solutions faster,” says Chen.

A10 has a spectrum of solutions in its portfolio—all designed for every aspect of a business. Available in a wide range of form factors, A10’s products can be hosted both on-premise and on the cloud for the most challenging network environments. The products can automatically defend applications and services in real time, even before advanced cyberattacks exploit them. In particular, the A10 Thunder product series has the ability to protect against sophisticated DDoS attacks and SSL visibility and decryption. It also offers secure application delivery and secures companies through converged, carrier-grade, security best practices. In addition, A10 also provides Harmony Controller for improved data analytics and management, making it easy for clients to protect their digital infrastructure by providing a single view of the entire network. Analytics solutions such as the per-app analytics available in A10 Harmony Controller empower companies to quickly and accurately detect security anomalies. The whole suite of A10’s solutions is GDPR compliant.
Alongside, A10 also has provision for companies to implement stronger identity hygiene practices like multi-factor authentication to prevent attackers from breaking into the networks and stealing data. From firewalls to cloud scrubbing to A10 Harmony Controller, A10’s solutions are designed to improve efficiency within the organization and allow IT professionals to focus on improving security and, in turn, business performance. For instance, SEGA Corporation, a video game giant, wanted to enhance its mobile game presence. They, however, required a robust and cost-efficient server to host the online abilities of their titles that could handle the high volume of traffic that SEGA was expecting. Implementing A10 ADC, SEGA gained high performance and usability through relevant traffic reporting options made available via local language GUI.
With the recent introduction of improved ways to battle sophisticated cyberthreats, the first half of 2018 has been quite eventful for A10 Networks. The company believes that technologies like cryptocurrencies and 5G will gain tremendous traction, but there will be a simultaneous presence of threats. “We are working toward ensuring that our software is prepared for the large-scale attacks that might occur in future,” concludes Chen.
