Why A10? Why Now?
A10 Networks was created with the notion of solving business problems through the innovative use of emerging technologies. With the rapid speed of innovation allowed today by advances in communication, customers choose A10 Networks to help their networks keep pace.
Ten years ago nobody forecasted the boom in video technology that we have today, including the online sharing of large files that makes networks increasingly relevant.
Twenty years ago nobody would have forecasted the bloom in email traffic, let alone the other sorts of traffic we have today with the advent of companies and products like the iPhone, Blackberry devices, Google, Yahoo, YouTube and many more.
Who is to say what people are doing 5 years from now; 10 years from now? But one thing is for sure: Networks will continue to become bigger, more bandwidth intensive, more complex--and require sophisticated management tools to perform efficiently.
It is this uncertainty of technology and increasing network growth and complexity that makes A10 relevant. Addressing this need today and in the future, A10 Networks delivers high-performance solutions that Accelerate, Optimize, Secure, and provide unprecedented visibility for network traffic as it traverses down network pipes.
