Lee Chen, Founder and CEO for A10 Networks, said, "I am extremely proud of the A10 Team for receiving Deloitte's prestigious Technology Fast 500™ award. In addition, we had a record setting Q3 2012 including a major new reseller partnership and I am optimistic about the tremendous opportunity in front of us. We have doubled our workforce to over 500 employees in the last 14 months to support our rapidly growing worldwide customer base and expanding Application Networking market opportunities."
