A10 Networks Launches IP-to-ID Partner Program for Identity Management

A10's ID Series Appliance with IP-to-ID Allows Quick and Seamless Integration to Third Party Products, Enabling Detailed User Identity Information to be Instantly Available

SAN JOSE, CA. - April 8, 2008 -- A10 Networks® today launched its IP-to-ID (Internet Protocol-to-Identity) Partner Program for identity management. The IP-to-ID Partner Program is designed to augment technology partners' offerings with comprehensive identity forensics information, delivering identity awareness for network users. A10's IP-to-ID Service within its ID Series network identity management appliances is a revolutionary technology designed to automate identity resolution by seamlessly integrating with existing networking and security devices as well as logging and reporting systems. The IP-to-ID Service allows network administrators to resolve critical problems faster, minimize troubleshooting and increase network forensics efforts.

A10's IP-to-ID Partner Program offers two levels depending on the amount of integration:

IP-to-ID Enabled:

IP-to-ID Tested:

"With the IP-to-ID Partner Program, our partners can easily provide additional value to their existing solutions by adding the capability to resolve user identity to any IP or MAC address instantly," said Lee Chen, founder and CEO for A10 Networks. "Customers looking to reduce time, cut costs of solving internal attacks and enable better analysis for decisions will benefit from the IP-to-ID technology within our partners' solutions."

"Visibility into actual end user activity is critical for securing and optimizing network operations," said Harland LaVigne, present and CEO of Lancope. "Through this partner program, A10 and Lancope are bringing together best of breed identity and network behavior analysis (NBA) technologies that underscore the importance of identity-aware, behavior-enhanced management and monitoring to help our enterprise customers more rapidly resolve network incidents."

"With our A10 IP-to-ID Enabled status, TippingPoint's SMS is the first IPS that has complete user identity awareness," said Robert Albach, senior product manager for TippingPoint. "Any IPS event can now be identified down to the user responsible regardless of the authentication source."
