A10 Networks unveils DDoS protection solution
A10 Networks reports the average company suffers 15 DDoS attacks per year, with average attacks causing at least 17 hours of effective downtime
A10 Networks has introduced A10 Thunder 14045 TPS, which provides the highest DDoS attack mitigation for service providers, Web 2.0 and Cloud Providers - 300 Gbps of mitigation throughput capacity.
This launch is part of A10 Networks' expanded family of Thunder TPS (Threat Protection System) high-performance solutions which includes entry-level virtual and hardware appliance form factors, all with easy integration into existing networks, including open source systems, for faster protection, plus the option to scale in cloud environments.
A10 Networks Thunder TPS provides agile, efficient and network-wide protection against the full spectrum of DDoS attacks. This includes the challenging multi-vector attacks that use a combination of high-rate volumetric or network protocol attacks and more sophisticated application attacks.
Raj Jalan, CTO of A10 Networks, said: "It's all about the customer. We're helping service providers and enterprises fight back against the rising DDoS onslaught so they can be proactive, not reactive. True multi-vector, always-on protection helps them ensure uptime, exceed operational readiness and productivity, and avoid brand damage due to costly outages."
According to a recent report by A10 Networks with IDG Connect, the average company suffers 15 DDoS attacks per year, with average attacks causing at least 17 hours of effective downtime, including slowdowns, denied customer access or crashes. Attacks are also getting harder to defend, with average peak bandwidths of 30 to 40 gigabits per second (Gbps) and many exceeding that mark.
"In the last few weeks major DDoS attacks have been sweeping the news headlines, as these attacks are becoming more persistent and frequent," said Dr. Vincent Berk, co-founder and CEO at FlowTraq. "Thunder TPS offers the right level of detection and mitigation to help our customers provide a first line of defense for their network infrastructures."
"As DDoS attacks increase in quantity, complexity and in the severity of damage they inflict, our mutual enterprise customers with A10 Networks need all the help they can get," added Doug Marlin, vice president, Independent Technology Group. "Just because they're not experiencing crashes, doesn't mean their customers aren't running into delays or blocked access. The flexibility, scalability and integration with different architectures that Thunder TPS offers is a clear benefit to our customers."
