Additional features for Application Delivery Controller

A10 Networks : 07 August, 2014  (New Product)
A10 Networks is providing extra security features for its Application Delivery Controller to help organizations combat evolving threats
Additional features for Application Delivery Controller

A10 Networks has announced significant enterprise security feature enhancements to its A10 Thunder ADC portfolio, providing enterprise customers with the latest security technologies required to combat evolving security threats that can damage employee productivity, brand reputation, and bottom-line revenue.

Combating security risks in an increasingly connected digital world challenges enterprise organizations worldwide. Complex Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are growing at an alarming rate. Encrypted web traffic is also rapidly growing, allowing hackers to bypass security defenses, such as firewalls, intrusion prevention systems (IPS) and malware detection systems, effectively creating an open door to hackers. Government intelligence data collection initiatives have created demand to further increase the amount of encrypted traffic, as well as ensure that data at rest cannot be decrypted in the future. All these threats are increasing against a backdrop of massive traffic growth and a proliferation of connected devices, making the challenge of protecting critical data a constant struggle for network operators. Therefore, it is essential that vendors innovate quickly and deliver the latest protection technologies in their products.

To help organizations cope with these rising threats, A10 is adding a host of new security features to its Thunder ADC appliances and form factors, including:

* Industry leading SSL Intercept visibility with selective bypass for user confidentiality powered by Webroot URL classification - the first URL bypass for SSL in an ADC product. See related announcement.

* Enhanced SSL Offload capabilities that can increase consumer peace of mind with Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) and ECDH (Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman) cryptography. Forward secrecy and strong new ciphers impede the decryption of data after the fact, and ephemeral keys generate and then discard unique keys after each session.

* ICSA certified Web Application Firewall enhancements that improve security accuracy and coverage, enabling organizations to reduce the risk of devastating web attacks and meet compliance requirements. New features include XML and JSON protection, open redirect attack mitigation, granular HTTP protocol compliance rules, and integration of WAF security policies with aFleX scripting policies.

* Broadened Application Access Management features that centralize user authentication using trusted identity management systems, including new support of industry standard SAML authentication with iDP interoperability

These new features complement existing security functionality on Thunder ADC appliances such as high performance server DDoS protection, DNS Application Firewall, access control lists, and many more security functions.

“Because ADCs sit at the critical ingress to most networks, it is a natural place to locate advanced security capabilities so threats can be stopped or mitigated before they can enter the network,” said Jason Matlof. “A10 has been adding security features such as DDoS mitigation, Web Application Firewall (WAF), and SSL offload functionality to its ADC portfolio for years, allowing security functions to be delivered with the very high performance characteristic of our ADCs. Today’s announcement further strengthens our enterprise security portfolio to include some of the most advanced security features, allowing our customers to keep ahead of evolving security threats.”

A10 is demonstrating its security solutions and capabilities at the Black Hat trade show in Las Vegas this week at Booth #659.
