Performance, scalability, and agility for the largest multi-cloud and 4G/5G networks. Learn why PivIT supports A10 Networks.
Traffic is expanding rapidly. Connect with the best in the industry here, learn more about A10 Networks Traffic Management.
PivIT Global supports A10 Networks because they focus on delivering the performance, scalability and agility for the largest multi-cloud and 4G/5G networks. A key leverage is their built-in, connected intelligence and analytics for smarter protection throughout your mission critical networks. A10 Networks work with their own artificial intelligence, machine learning, and predictive analytics to protect against threats. With automation at our fingertips and open APIs, PivIT Global and A10 Networks work together to seamlessly strengthen your security while optimizing IT resources.
A10 Networks provides your security at hyperscale. It is no longer just about throughput, but rather about connections per second, massive number of concurrent connections and automatic scaling to protect millions of connected devices in a dynamic and cloud-native environment.
Through A10 Networks, PivIT delivers on-premises and cloud-based security solutions for the most challenging network environments. You can automatically defend applications and services, in real time, before they are exploited by advanced cyberattacks. Reduce business risk by protecting applications and infrastructure against malicious cyberattacks, including multi-vector DDoS attacks and encrypted assaults.
A10 Networks Thunder Convergent Firewall (CFW) is the industry’s first security solution that incorporates multiple security functions for enterprise and service provider deployments, including highly scalable and high-performance firewall, IPsec VPN, secure web gateway, Carrier-Grade NAT with integrated DDoS protection and traffic steering in a single, standalone product. A10 Network Security allows you to detect and stop external threats from infiltrating the corporate network. Gain access to overcome many of the challenges introduced by the growth in internet traffic and by the rise of modern, feature-rich cloud applications and workloads. Scale for increased traffic, often with long-lived, persistent connections to cloud applications, while also enhancing the existing security infrastructure.
Mobile service providers, like PivIT Global, are constantly exploring ways to enhance network utilization by steering traffic flows to the value-added services in a way that is transparent to the end user. Intelligently steering traffic can enable operators to offer personalized services to drive new revenue streams and improve operational efficiency for significant cost savings.
Subscriber traffic is expanding rapidly, driven by the proliferation of connected devices and increasing bandwidth usage per subscriber. This trend is fueling the demand for new digital content and applications, opening up great opportunities for new services (video calling, high-definition content streaming, etc.). This is evolving into 5G service offerings, with a wide range of use cases for the scalable hyper-connected Internet of Things (IoT) world.
The traffic steering policy can be extremely granular and can leverage many Layer 3-7 characteristics of the end-user flows, enabling service providers to route traffic only through the services relevant to the subscribers. For example, traffic steering can be based on IP, user or application. This solution can also provide IPv4 and IPv6 consistency so that the same user goes through the same set of services.
In today's application-centric world, deploying application delivery and server load balancing is essential to meet availability demands, ensure security and enhance user experience. Through A10 focus on load balancing, intelligently distribute application traffic across servers deployed in multiple geographic locations around the world. This ensures the high availability of global applications and optimal user experience. The Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB) feature comes with Thunder ADC.
There is a rapid increase in network traffic encryption, with more than half of the Internet traffic already being encrypted. Due to such unprecedented rates of encryption, organizations are facing new security challenges as many security devices are not designed to decrypt and encrypt network traffic at high speeds. In fact, some security products do not have the ability to decrypt traffic at all.
Encrypted traffic provides a blind spot for threat actors to hide malicious content, raising concerns each time encrypted data enters your environment. Therefore, users are presented with a new dilemma: Either decrypt traffic and introduce bottlenecks into your network because of decryption-induced performance degradation, or bypass decryption and expose your network to potential encrypted attacks. Either way, users are exposed to performance issues as well as security risks.
Multi-vector DDoS attacks are also increasing in frequency and volume, severely impacting businesses across the globe. Defending your infrastructure, servers, application and users’ access during DDoS attacks can’t be accomplished by existing firewall, intrusion prevention system, and load balancers. In fact, in many instances, these systems are the target of attacks because they are vulnerable and can be overwhelmed by a flood of unwanted traffic.
