TOKYO – Feb. 15, 2019 - A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN), today announced that it is now top-ranked in terms of market share for Japanese SSL visibility sales based on the “ITR Market View: Cyber Security Measures Market 2019” market research report issued by ITR Corporation (ITR), the largest Japanese based IT focused research and advisory firm.
A10 Networks achieved the highest market share - 53.1 percent - based on sales according to ITR’s fiscal 2017 research. ITR evaluated A10 Networks as follows: “Having joined this sector in 2012, A10 Networks is now the market leader.”
There have been great strides in communications encryption (SSL/TLS) recently due to increased awareness about security and privacy, but on the other hand, the number of attacks against encrypted communications by cybercriminals is on the increase. The research reported that total sales in the Japanese SSL visibility market saw a 20.8 percent year-on-year increase in fiscal 2017.
In addition, “Common Standards for Information Security Measures for Government Agencies” issued by the Cybersecurity Strategic Headquarters of the National Center of Incident Readiness and Strategy for Cybersecurity (NISC) states, “In the event that data to be monitored is encrypted, it must be decrypted if necessary,” so further market growth is anticipated.
A10 Networks Thunder CFW and Thunder SSLi provides high performance inspection of encrypted internet traffic for SSL visibility. CFW and SSLi feature high SSL throughput, a wide range of SSL/TLS security features including Perfect Forward Security (PFS) and predictive analytics from Harmony Controller. A10 Networks will continue to enhance SSL visibility features to address market needs and intend to provide world class customer service.
