A10 Networks introduced "the industry’s biggest gun" in the rapidly escalating war against DDoS attacks -- the A10 Thunder 14045 TPS (Threat Protection System) for Service Providers, Internet Content Providers, and Cloud operators. The appliance packs 300 Gbps of mitigation throughput capacity (or 2.4 terabits per second in a cluster).
A10 is also expanding its Thunder TPS family with a new 840 model offering 2 Gbps of mitigation throughput capacity for medium-sized enterprises or remote sites. In addition, the company is introducing NFV-based DDoS solutions at performance tiers from 1 to 5 Gbps.
A10 said its Thunder TPS can block multi-vector DDoS attacks to stop disruption, detecting and mitigating them at the network edge, and functioning as a first line of defense for the network infrastructure.
“It’s all about the customer,” said Raj Jalan, CTO of A10 Networks. “We’re helping service providers and enterprises fight back against the rising DDoS onslaught so they can be proactive, not reactive. True multi-vector, always-on protection helps them ensure uptime, exceed operational readiness and productivity, and avoid brand damage due to costly outages.”
