Thunder Threat Protection System (TPS) Gives Service Providers the
Highest Performance DDoS Defense in Compact, Reliable Form Factor
SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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
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.
