A10 Networks Forms Alliance for Security Solutions
A10 Networks has partnered with Symantec and Venafi to secure and automate the management of SSL certificates and keys.Application networking specialist A10 Networks unveiled the A10 Security Alliance, an ecosystem of security and networking companies that are working together to help mitigate threats and automate security operations. By validating interoperability with products from leading security vendors, the A10 Security Alliance has developed specialized solutions for data centers that deliver the security capabilities required to detect and eliminate advanced threats, lower data breach expenses and reduce the cost of security operations. For instance, A10 Networks has partnered with Symantec and Venafi to secure and automate the management of SSL certificates and keys, and using the Webroot BrightCloud Web Classification Service together with A10's SSL Insight feature, customers can analyze and secure SSL traffic while bypassing communications to sensitive sites such as banking and health care applications. "When we were preparing for our ACOS 4.0 launch in August—which announced important security enhancements to A10’s SSL Insight, Web Application Firewall and authentication features, we realized that our partners were key to the success of these features," Kasey Cross, senior product marketing manager for A10 Networks, told eWEEK. "In addition, leading security vendors were reaching out to us to partner, especially to gain visibility into SSL traffic with our SSL Insight feature. So we decided to categorize our partners into distinct groups, standardize our interoperability testing processes, build a library of collateral for our partners, including solution briefs and deployment guides, and publicly launch our new Security Alliance ecosystem."
The company’s Thunder Series products, in conjunction with A10 Security Alliance members’ products, offer solutions covering secure sockets layer (SSL) visibility to detect advanced threats, authentication for federated security and single-sign-on, automated SSL certificate management and protection, as well as threat and URL intelligence for effective policy decisions.
