A10 Networks Teams with RSA, The Security Division of EMC, to Increase Network Security and Visibility
A10 Joins the RSA Secured® Partner Program to Provide Joint Customers with Identity-based Network Monitoring Interoperable with Two-Factor Authentication
SAN JOSE, CA. - December 3, 2007 -- A10 Networks® today announced that is has joined the RSA Secured® Partner Program to certify technical interoperability between A10's IDsentrie™ network identity management appliance and RSA SecurID® technology from RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC). This certification signifies that a technical partnership has been established to help increase security, and network and user identity visibility for joint customers.
"As networks become more complex, it is increasingly difficult to secure and monitor them," said Lee Chen, president and CEO for A10 Networks. "Together, A10 Networks' IDsentrie network identity management appliance and RSA SecurID technology provide identity-based monitoring with two-factor authentication to increase network security and visibility. Our joint customers can benefit from increased protection for corporate assets and better visibility into "who" is doing "what" and "when" on their networks."
IDsentrie for Network Identity Management
The flagship product in A10's ID Series family, IDsentrie is a network identity management appliance that helps organizations of all sizes save time and minimize risk by resolving security issues faster. It includes features for password management, instant Internet Protocol-to-Identity (IP-to-ID) resolution, network authentication, account management and identity-based monitoring and reporting. IDsentrie is built on a flexible, virtual directory model for rapid integration with existing network infrastructure and support for a variety of popular data stores to simplify complex user resource management, and authentication and access issues.
The RSA SecurID system is designed to be as simple to use as entering a password, but with significantly more security. Used in conjunction with RSA® Authentication Manager software, an RSA SecurID authenticator functions like an ATM card for a company network, requiring users to identify themselves with two unique factors – something they know (a password or PIN), and something they have (such as an RSA SecurID hardware or software authenticator) – before they are granted access to secure business information.
"As the business world evolves, an effective strategy to protect identities and digital assets is essential to the growth and success of an organization. Companies must feel confident that vital information and applications remain secure, both inside and outside their operations," said D.J. Long, Senior Director, Corporate Development at RSA. "The RSA Secured interoperability partnership between A10 Networks and RSA should help end users efficiently and cost-effectively manage the digital identities of diverse user bases – including employees, partners and customers."
