A10 Networks introduced its Thunder Convergent Firewall (CFW), a standalone security product that leverages its ACOS Harmony platform for converging security and application delivery in a single appliance for service providers, cloud providers, and large enterprises. Firewall performance is rated at over 150 Gbps throughput and 5 million CPS in a one rack-unit appliance. A10's ACOS Harmony platform uses standards-based RESTful APIs to providing access to telemetry data and all aspects of configuration.

Some highlights:

  • High-performance Secure Web Gateway with integrated explicit proxy, URL filtering and SSL Insight. It enables security policy enforcement for client outbound HTTP/HTTPS traffic.

  • High-performance Gi/SGi firewall with integrated network DoS and Carrier Grade NAT (CGN). The Gi/SGi firewall protects the mobility infrastructure with advanced policy enforcement.
  • High-performance IPSec site-to-site VPN. It helps enterprises to secure application traffic between sites and it enables global enterprises to use public networks to transport application traffic securely.
