Thunder 7445 Threat Protection System (TPS) Delivers More than Twice the Performance of Competing Products

SAN JOSE, Calif. – October 16, 2018 – A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN), a provider of intelligent and automated cybersecurity solutions, today announced the A10 Thunder 7445 Threat Protection System (Thunder TPS)®, the industry’s highest performance 1 rack unit (RU) and highest density of throughput per RU appliance. Now cloud, Internet and gaming providers can protect their infrastructure with A10 DDoS defense while enjoying the cost benefits of 100 GbE networking in the smallest form factor.

A10 Network’s high-performance Thunder TPS is a flexible and robust DDoS protection solution that offers surgical precision in detecting and mitigating against the full spectrum of DDoS attacks. The solution is available in a wide range of hardware and software deployment options. By providing the industry’s highest performance 1 RU appliance, with a breakthrough 220 Gbps throughput and 250 Mpps, the solution provides distinct advantages over competing products that deliver less than half the performance. The solution enables smaller, more efficient deployment at a time when real estate has never been at more of a premium in data centers, colocation facilities and Internet Exchange Points (IXPs).

“At A10, we understand the importance and pressures associated with our customers’ rack space and the need more cost efficient solutions,” said Lee Chen, Founder and CEO of A10 Networks. “Providing our customers with the industry’s highest performance 1 RU appliance is critical when taking into account that many organizations are having to navigate cramped data centers and leverage expensive real estate colocation facilities when instituting DDoS protection.”

A10 Thunder TPS capabilities include:

  • Better Detection – One-DDoS Protection provides a unique approach to full-spectrum DDoS defense, placing detection capabilities within targeted infrastructure, including Thunder TPS, ADC, CGN and CFW solutions.

  • Unmatched Scalability – Delivers 22 times the flow-based detection capacity and 15 times as many simultaneous active mitigations as traditional systems.
  • Automated Wartime Protection – Improved attack response times with proactive, intelligent automation featuring five levels of programmatic mitigation escalation and de-escalation. Removing the need for frontline personnel to make time-consuming manual changes.
  • Reduced Security OPEX – Delivers high performance in a compact factor with lower power usage, rack space and cooling requirements. Also, aGalaxy TPS streamlines operations via centralized management, remediation, and analytics for Thunder TPS deployments.
