The U.S. government and federal agencies are held to the highest standards for application performance, cyber security and data protection. The agencies must diligently eliminate network blind spots in SSL traffic, protect sensitive assets and maximize existing cyber security investments. A10 supports vendor-agnostic, defense-in-depth strategies to facilitate stronger cyber threat analysis, scalable mitigation, detection and remediation of encrypted traffic. ‘Break and inspect’ SSL/TLS traffic that adversaries exploit to obfuscate attacks, and deploy DDoS protection solutions to detect and mitigate advanced DDoS attacks.
Federal agencies and government departments rely on complex and layered infrastructure to safeguard sensitive assets across local, regional and global sites. Each agency must also consider how its technology complies with various government mandates, such as FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria.
The above topology highlights a typical government infrastructure where application delivery controllers (ADC), DDoS protection controls and data center firewalls systematically defend the network. A high-performance, site-to-site IPsec VPN encrypts communication between various sites, and SSL decryption helps ensure existing security tools are effective against all traffic types.
A10 works with more than 50 of the world’s top technology partners to deliver the best in application delivery, security and analytics for federal agencies.
