A10 Networks launched the A10 Thunder 7445 Threat Protection System (Thunder TPS), the performance 1 rack unit (RU) and density of throughput per RU appliance. Now cloud, Internet and gaming providers can protect their infrastructure with A10 DDoS defense while enjoying the cost benefits of 100 GbE networking in the smallest form factor.
A10 Network’s Thunder TPS is a DDoS protection solution that offers precision in detecting and mitigating against the full spectrum of DDoS attacks. The solution is available in a range of hardware and software deployment options.
By providing the performance 1 RU appliance, with a 220 Gbps throughput and 330 Mpps, the solution provides advantages over competing products that deliver less than half the performance. The solution enables smaller, more efficient deployment at a time when real estate has never been at more of a premium in data centers, colocation facilities and Internet Exchange Points (IXPs).
“At A10, we understand the importance and pressures associated with our customers’ rack space and the need for more cost efficient solutions,” said Lee Chen, Founder and CEO of A10 Networks. “Providing our customers with the industry’s highest performance 1 RU appliance is critical when taking into account that many organizations are having to navigate cramped data centers and leverage expensive real estate colocation facilities when instituting DDoS protection.”
A10 Thunder TPS capabilities include:
Better detection – One-DDoS Protection provides an approach to full-spectrum DDoS defense, placing detection capabilities within targeted infrastructure, including Thunder TPS, ADC, CGN and CFW solutions. This provides context, flow and packet level visibility to stop today’s targeted attacks.
Unmatched scalability – Delivers 22 times the flow-based detection capacity and 15 times as many simultaneous active mitigations as traditional systems.
Automated wartime protection – Improved attack response times with automation featuring five levels of programmatic mitigation escalation and de-escalation. Removing the need for frontline personnel to make time-consuming manual changes.
Reduced security OPEX – Delivers high performance in a compact factor with lower power usage, rack space and cooling requirements. Also, aGalaxy TPS streamlines operations via centralized management, remediation, and analytics for Thunder TPS deployments.
