DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 14th September, 2014 -- A10 Networks™, the technology leader in Application Networking, today announced that it will demonstrate its latest innovations in Distributed Denial of service (DDoS) Threat Protection Systems and high-performance, next-generation Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) at GITEX Technology Week, 12-16 October, 2014. Using A10 Thunder™ TPS product line of Threat Protection Systems, the company will demonstrate how to protect enterprise networks from escalating DDoS attacks and protect data centre servers and networks from service downtime resulting from these difficult-to-detect attacks. Also on display will be the next-generation A10 Thunder™ ADC product line of high-performance, next-generation application delivery controllers that enables customers' applications to be highly available, accelerated and secure.

Glen Ogden, Regional Sales Director for the Middle East region at A10 Networks says, “Today, service providers such as cloud providers, web hosting services, ISPs as well as large enterprises require an environment that is highly available and secure, as the Internet is the main way to channel an organization's services to its customers. Over the last few years, DDoS attacks have grown dramatically in frequency, size and complexity. While Middle East organizations have existing security strategies in place that mitigate a range of security threats, they are not sufficient enough to address new breeds of DDoS attacks that leverage large distributed "botnet" networks of compromised "zombie" machines to simultaneously launch attacks using compliant protocols that are very difficult to detect and even harder to mitigate. It is clear that additional solutions are needed to complement existing security infrastructure in a layered defense model.”

“At Gitex we are eager to demo Thunder TPS that provides sophisticated, high-performance features to mitigate the largest and most complex DDoS attacks while optimizing rack space and power consumption, ensuring that data center resources are used efficiently and effectively. We would also like to build on the success we have been experiencing in the region with the A10 Thunder ADCs. Whether its Application Delivery, Virtualization, Cloud Enablement, Security or IPV6 Migration, A10 Thunder ADCs are the next evolution in Application Networking - taking Application Delivery Controllers and Server Load Balancers (SLB) to the next level.”

A10 Thunder™ TPS product line of Threat Protection Systems provides high-performance, network-wide protection against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, and enables service availability against a variety of volumetric, protocol, resource and other sophisticated application attacks. It is built upon the company’s Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS) platform, with A10’s Symmetric Scalable Multi-Core Processing (SSMP) software architecture that delivers high performance and leverages a shared memory architecture to provide efficient tracking of network flows, as well as accurate DDoS protection enforcement for service providers, web site operators and enterprises.

Thunder ADC is a family of hardware and software appliances that are ready to match a wide variety of deployment needs, delivering performance scalability up to 150 Gbps, the broadest range of form factors (physical, virtual and hybrid), and expanded system resources designed to support future feature needs. The product maximizes rack space and reduces power consumption (via optimal ADC CPU and memory optimization, infrastructure optimization and overall data centre cooling).

Over the past year, A10 Networks has been investing heavily in the Middle East and the business is steadily gaining momentum with some significant projects in a number of Telcos, Government/Military and large institutions across the region including King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences, Road Transport Authority Dubai, Terranet, Kuwait Investment Bank and NSGB to name a few. A10 is based in Dubai with direct presence in both UAE & Saudi and operates a two tier channel model with fully trained distributors in Saudi, UAE and channel partners operating in UAE, Saudi, Kuwait, Oman, Jordan, Lebanon, Bahrain. As a commitment to customers, the company has hired an Arab speaking Level 3 Technical Assistance Support Engineer in Riyadh to ensure the highest level of local support, besides investing in a number of Resident Engineers who work onsite with larger customers.

A10 Networks can be found in Hall 1 of the exhibition at stand number C1/16.

A10 Networks provides cutting edge infrastructure optimising technology with a clearly defined evolution path to support growing networks. Backed by 9 years of investment in design, test and support services, A10 Networks delivers a consistent and high performance solution that supports service provider and enterprise business models.
