Malware, ransomware, and distributed denial of service (DDoS) threats continue to spread quickly and target vital vertical markets including banking, healthcare, and government infrastructure, stated A10 Networks.
The new A10 Defend security service would enhance the company’s current solution portfolio. It would give enterprises and service providers access to real-time data that is tailored to their specific needs while improving their security posture
A10 Defend is a pilot Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering. It comes with threat insights combining unique network traffic knowledge and analyses of indicators of compromise used to carry out attacks, in response to the growing demand from customers for tools that will help defend against DDoS attacks.
A10 Networks would develop distinctive and useful insights into the use case requirements of its clients by combining internal networking experience gained from dealing with a wide global customer base with cybersecurity research.
A10 Networks’ own research now tracks upwards of 15.4 million DDoS weapons. For both big and small enterprises, this would pose a serious challenge. In addition, clients are becoming more overburdened with new security solutions, a lack of knowledge, and constrained budgets in an uncertain economic climate, according to A10 Networks.
“Our deep understanding of network traffic combined with primary research into cybersecurity helps us to tailor the service as an enhancement for customer vertical industries as opposed to generic cybersecurity solutions,” said Dhrupad Trivedi, President and CEO at A10 Networks. “This service further enhances A10’s solutions to provide customers with timely, relevant, and tailored threat insights required to better protect their networks.”
