Thunder® Convergent Firewall and Thunder Threat Protection System Deliver Powerful Defense for Next Generation 5G Networks

SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 7, 2019 – A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN) today announced it has won two 2019 InfoSec awards from Cyber Defense Magazine, one for Cutting Edge 5G Security and another for Best DDoS Protection Product.

A10 Networks’ Gi/SGi firewall solution, the Thunder® Convergent Firewall (CFW), helps mobile service providers future-proof their networks for 5G. With its unprecedented performance and scale, comprehensive features, and rich automation capabilities, the Thunder CFW is unmatched in its ability to meet the massive capacity demands of 4G and 5G networks.

A10 Networks’ Thunder Threat Protection System (TPS) is the industry’s highest-performance DDoS protection solution with capabilities for detecting and mitigating DDoS attacks at the network edge. Unlike legacy DDoS products, Thunder TPS uses machine learning and intelligent automation to speed mitigation response times and minimize manual intervention. DDoS protection is expected to be a major challenge for 5G networks, as well.

“Cybercrime, hacktivism, cyberespionage, ransomware and malware exploits are all on the rise, and will only increase with the adoption of 5G networks. A10 Networks won our Cutting Edge 5G Security and Best DDoS Protection Product awards following an extensive review of nearly 3,000 security companies across a variety of categories. A10 Networks is a security technology innovator on a mission to protect companies from increasingly virulent and damaging attacks globally,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine.

“Winning two cyber defense awards is a testament to our commitment to keeping applications protected, reliable and always available,” said Lee Chen, president and CEO at A10 Networks. “The advancement of 5G networks will place increasing pressure on service providers and enterprises to migrate to a new generation of security solutions. A10 Networks is focused on providing our customers with the most effective, scalable and automated security solutions available today and tomorrow.”
