A10 Networks Fortifies Security at the Enterprise Network Edge with Malware Defense and Intelligent Controls

A10 Networks broadened its portfolio of enterprise solutions by introducing the Secure Web Gateway featuring the SSL Insight® solution, available on the Thunder CFW platform. This solution empowers enterprise customers with defenses against the modern web threat landscape, as well as providing advanced performance features to help scale for demanding SaaS workloads and compliance requirements.

A10’s new Secure Web Gateway augments controlled and secure access for enterprise users. It enables enterprises to enforce policies for who accesses what, how and when, in order to help protect them from malicious intent and to better ensure enterprises are compliant at all times.

A10’s Secure Web Gateway Solution featuring the SSL Insight® solution provides bidirectional SSL Visibility by offloading resource intensive SSL/TLS encrypted traffic with almost twice the throughput compared to similar competing offerings for security infrastructure. It provides an innovative “Secured Decrypt Zone” which enables an advanced decrypt once and inspect multiple times capability, unlike other solutions. It also features ICAP functionality which can send decrypted traffic to multiple ICAP enabled security devices simultaneously.

A10’s subscription offerings further enhance the enterprise security by providing proactive and up-to-date preventive and protective services that include on-the-box malware detection, IP-reputation, URL filtering as well as URL Bypass for bypassing traffic from decryption for compliance. A10’s AppCentric templates make deployment, configuration and troubleshooting extremely easy, also offering rich analytics and intuitive dashboards.

A10’s Secure Web Gateway Solution can help enterprise scale for massive sessions and traffic handling generated by business-critical cloud applications, such as Microsoft Office 365 and Google Suite. Cloud application traffic can intelligently be classified and routed to a dedicated uplink such as Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute. The SSL Insight tool can perform header insertion for additional security through tenant access control.
