A10 Networks Signs Reseller Partnership With Data Processing Sciences, One of the U.S.' Largest Technology Vars
SAN JOSE, CA, July 31, 2006 - A10 Networks™ and Data Processing Sciences (DPS), one of the nation's oldest and largest Value Added Resellers (VARs), announced that they have signed an agreement through which DPS will sell and support A10's award-winning identity and access management appliance - the IDsentrie.
Data Processing Sciences delivers solutions that simplify and manage technology for its clients and maximize clients' existing investments. DPS offers a wide range of solutions, including IP communications, network architecture, carrier services, server-based computing, IP telephony and security. DPS was founded in 1961, and has offices in 14 U.S. locations. The company has earned a ranking on the annual VARBusiness 500 list of the U.S.' largest VARs for each of the past 12 years.
"We were impressed by A10's IP-to-ID Service. We saw immediately that it would be a powerful way to allow our clients' administrators to quickly trace security events back to end-users, and track users who change IP addresses often by instantly resolving specific IP or MAC addresses to the exact user identity," said Dan Boeth, DPS Manager of Security Solutions.
"We are pleased to add A10's IDsentrie appliance to our strategic portfolio of security solutions, and we look forward to offering new and existing clients the powerful benefits of A10's 'IP to ID' resolution technology," said DPS President, Kurt Loock.
Instant IP to ID™ Resolution with A10's IP-to-ID Service
A10's IP-to-ID Service provides fast and automated identity resolution for virtually any application that requires linking user identity to IP or MAC addresses. A10's automated identity tracking capabilities will arm DPS' clients with instant access to identity information and accelerate forensic troubleshooting. Previously, linking network activity, or IP or MAC addresses to the actual user identity required manual correlation--literally hunting through thousands of DHCP, DNS, or domain controller logs-which can add dozens of minutes and sometimes hours to the forensic process, and leave networks vulnerable to infection or attack.
By automating user identity tracking and instantly tying network activity back to the identity of the end user, DPS can now offer solutions that streamline troubleshooting and quarantine efforts and deliver powerful auditing capabilities for regulatory compliance. This appliance-based solution enables scalable, cost-effective user tracking and reporting for network optimization and security, without requiring software agents or other services.
"DPS has a long track record of offering excellent technologies to fulfill its clients' needs and it consistently offers one of the highest levels of technical support and integration expertise in the business. By joining with industry-leading partners like DPS, we are better equipped to serve end-customers and help them realize the benefits of identity-aware network solutions," said Peter Stokes, vice president of sales for A10 Networks.
Founded in 1961, DPS provides solutions that support its clients' critical business applications, from network infrastructure, the foundation of a company's operations, to unified voice, data, video and messaging capabilities that allow its clients to communicate more effectively with their customers, employees and business partners.
