Thunder Threat Protection System (TPS) Gives Service Providers the Highest Performance DDoS Defense in Compact, Reliable Form Factor
SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 5, 2019 – A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN), today announced a new capacity enhancement to its Thunder® 14045 TPS, which delivers industry-leading attack traffic mitigation capabilities. This capacity gain provides the highest performance available in the market with 500 Gbps of defense in one appliance. The smaller form factor reduces the number of devices required, while building scalable DDoS defenses that meet the challenge of emerging attacks. As service providers look to expand their service offerings, the Thunder TPS solution enables them to build profitable DDoS mitigation services that protect their own networks, as well as their subscribers.
Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are only going to increase over time and attackers have an ever-expanding opportunity to use new device types, particularly connected-home devices like home hubs, routers and IP cameras to mount even larger attacks. In fact, the most recent A10 Networks’ DDoS Weapons Intelligence report describes the significant potential for attackers to use an IoT-related protocol, the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP), deployed on IoT devices to marshal attacks.
With their expansive attack surface and absolute need for 24×7 uptime, global communications providers, cloud and online gaming service providers require the highest levels of protection from DDoS attacks. Service providers can rely on A10 Networks for expanded L3-7 DDoS protection, high scalability and advanced automated defenses that intelligently leverage machine learning.
“The proliferation of connected devices, and the increases in bandwidth and new application services enabled by advanced 5G networks mean that the size and intensity of DDoS attacks will increase exponentially. Customers require a modern approach to automated defenses with new technologies, like machine learning and advanced threat intelligence, to mitigate these attacks. The performance and automation available with Thunder TPS will help service providers deliver effective protection to their subscribers in this new and evolving attack landscape,” said Ahmed Abdelhalim, director of product management, A10 Networks.
With 500 Gbps mitigation capacity per Thunder TPS device, A10 Networks continues to drive innovation in the fast-growing DDoS market, leaving legacy suppliers behind. Thunder TPS solution is core to A10 Networks’ DDoS defense strategy delivering:
- One-DDoS Protection– The industry’s only connected intelligence system that provides full-spectrum multi-vector DDoS defense with distributed detection and machine learning capabilities within targeted infrastructure, including Thunder TPS, ADC, CGN, and CFW.
