SAN JOSE, CA, September 25, 2006 - A10 Networks™, a pioneer in delivering a new class of identity-aware network solutions, today announced that Chengdu Telecom, China Construction Bank and Sichuan Telecom have purchased and successfully deployed the A10 Networks IDsentrie platform to provide identity management and security tools for their finance and telecommunication service provider networks.

Providing Identity Management and Instant Security for Finance and Telecom Networks
It is a fact that today's information-based services produce large volumes of data, user accounts and passwords, while at the same time needing to comply with regulatory rules and policies. Managing large numbers of user accounts and passwords to provide network security, while at the same time complying with regulations, is becoming increasingly difficult and time consuming. Addressing these problems, the A10 Networks IDsentrie appliance simplifies the user account management process, automates identity-based network tracking, enables account synchronization and centralizes user authentication - helping to reduce the cost of IT networking resources and investments while increasing security and compliance.

"We are proud to provide Chengdu Telecom, China Construction Bank and Sichuan Telecom with the identity management and security tools needed for their finance and telecommunications networks," said Lee Chen, president and CEO of A10 Networks. "Our IDsentrie appliance integrates critical identity and network security functions so our customers can reduce the time and resources needed for their necessary security, network operation and compliance-related tasks. Furthermore, the IDsentrie platform can easily scale to meet the needs of any future growth and requirements."
