What Customers Are Saying

Thunder ADC

“We have a much lower TCO with the Thunder ADC. We replaced our F5 environment for about what it previously cost us in maintenance on those devices. The Thunder ADC product was super easy to use and configure. A10 Networks offers excellent customer and technical support.”

Fastly Next-Gen WAF

“Extremely pleasing. I have used a lot of other WAFs on the market, and they all require a lot of tuning to be perfect. Fastly’s next-gen WAF, however, is smarter and able to make blocking decisions that do not rely on regex to operate. This eliminates false positives. What this means in reality is that you spend less time operating the WAF, and more time enjoying it. Our customers also love the product, and once they jump on board, will never go back to a traditional regex-based WAF.”
