Expanded A10 Harmony® Controller Improves Security and Lowers
TCO via New Modular Harmony Apps

A10
Networks
(NYSE:ATEN), a provider of intelligent and automated
cybersecurity solutions, today announced a major upgrade to its
groundbreaking multi-cloud analytics and management platform, the A10
Harmony Controller
. The upgrade expands A10's advanced security and
connected intelligence capabilities via new modular Harmony Apps that
support key A10 security solutions, Thunder® SSLi (SSL Insight), Thunder
CFW (Convergent Firewall), and the Thunder CGN (Carrier-Grade
Networking).

With many organizations undergoing digital transformation, it is
becoming even more critical to have highly available and secure
application infrastructure to support business operations. A10's release
of the A10 Harmony Controller 4.1 provides new levels of analytics and
control to help businesses keep up with the rapid growth in applications
and escalation of cyber threats. It provides unique visibility and
insights into application traffic, thereby increasing security efficacy,
shortening troubleshooting times, and enabling simplified capacity
planning for reduced TCO.

With A10 Harmony Controller 4.1, the solution becomes highly extensible
by introducing a framework to run pluggable apps which can be installed,
on-demand, on top of the A10 Harmony platform. The pluggable apps can
provide use case specific insights, alerts and centralized
configurations of the services, data and systems. The initial set of A10
infrastructure apps available include:

  • SSLi App for encrypted traffic, user behavior, and key
    information insights with the Thunder
    SSLi solution
    . The SSLi App also introduces enhanced centralized
    management and simplified workflows for Thunder SSLi deployment and
    operations.
  • GiFW App for application, policy, and performance insights with Thunder
    CFW's GiFW
    (Gi Firewall) solution.
  • CGN App for subscriber and network services visibility with Thunder
    CGN's
    CGNAT (Carrier-Grade NAT) solution.

The modular and extensible nature of Harmony Apps will enable an
ecosystem of apps for 3rd party solutions that can be used to
provide intelligent automation, make deployments extremely easy and
validate configurations to ensure correct operation and security. In
addition, apps can provide context-specific custom dashboards leading to
operational efficiency and security efficacy. Microsoft Exchange load
balancing on top of A10 Secure Application Service infrastructure is one
such context-specific example.

"Today, with applications being deployed on a multitude of cloud and
on-premises infrastructures, app and security teams are pressured to
ensure that security and availability is not compromised," said Kamal
Anand, Vice President of Cloud, A10 Networks. "The A10 Harmony
Controller 4.1 enables a single pane of glass for secure app services,
helping to ease the stress and burden that are weighing on IT teams".

Availability

A10 Harmony Controller 4.1 is available Q3, 2018.
