A10 Networks Introduces Partner Program To Deliver Award-Winning Identity Management Solution

European partner expansion brings host of reseller benefits to introduce world's first Unified Identity and Access Management (IAM) appliance

London, Nov. 6, 2006 - A10 Networks™, a pioneer in delivering a new class of identity-aware network solutions, announces today a new European partner program with a strong suite of reseller benefits. The new partner program is part of a European drive as A10 Networks enables delivery of its award-winning identity management solution, the IDsentrie™, the world's first Unified Identity and Access Management (IAM) appliance.  The IDsentrie enhances security and IT through features that resolve IP address to IDentity (IP-to-ID) instantly, whilst improving help desk efficiency and simplifying account management.

A10 Networks' Partner Program will lead its 100% channel commitment and support direct relationships with European solution providers. It provides a partnering opportunity for VARs to enhance their security, IT and compliance practices with A10 Networks' industry-leading IDsentrie. Through the program resellers will be offered the opportunity to develop a suite of professional services designed to simplify the management of identity and access, as well as enhance their customers' security and network infrastructure.

The European partner community now has the ability to sell leading-edge IDsentrie in one of the fastest growing and highest priority enterprise solution segments. The program is designed for partners that can help provide a full suite of services for customers - including planning and assessment, design and implementation and support services. It offers a range of benefits, including excellent margins, free sales and technical training, a partner portal with sales and marketing resources and joint marketing funds.

Will Palmer, Managing Director, A10 Networks EMEA comments on the program, "We are committed to growing our business together with our partners and genuinely believe that the value lies not only in the program itself, but in how it is executed. Our program offers a strong degree of collaboration and provides a single point of contact with, most importantly the tools and training to offer the latest IAM solutions."

IDsentrie™, the world's first Unified Identity and Access Management (IAM) appliance, offers customers choice as each identity management feature can be enabled or disabled to fit the customer's needs without worrying about component licensing or "per-user" charges. IDsentrie facilitates identity management deployment with its non-disruptive and vendor neutral approach and provides customers with a broad range of identity management features that can be deployed by different IT departments within an organization.

A recent Gartner report states that ‘regulatory requirements will spur adoption of identity and access management in 2006.' (Gartner Predicts 2005: ‘IT Operations and Infrastructure Management Continues to Mature'). With the ability to track administrator and user authentication activity and provide identity-based reports, logs and alerts, IDsentrie enhances many regulatory compliance, internal control, and corporate governance procedures to help automate manual tasks.

The A10 Partner Network is being rolled out now. For more information on becoming a member of the A10 Networks Partner Network visit www.a10networks.com.
