FREMONT, CA: A10 Networks, a provider of application networking solutions, partners with ThreatSTOP, a developer of cyber security software to deliver Threat Intelligence Service for protecting customer applications and users from cyber threats.

The key features of A10 Threat Intelligence Service include: protecting network from future threats; block threats not covered by security infrastructure; increasing network efficiency and performance; preventing zero-day attacks; cloaking network from known cybercriminal scans; blocking Command and Control computers from communicating with customer network; and providing personalized threat intelligence data.

The A10 Threat Intelligence Service incorporates data from over various security intelligence sources that enables A10’s Thunder Application Delivery Controller (ADC) and Threat Protection System (TPS), application security portfolios to instantly recognize and block traffic from known attack sources. The intelligence feed received via ThreatSTOP’s advanced threat monitoring and mitigation platform will provide customers with a real-time intelligence that will help  prevent data theft, reduce network load and minimize attack surface. The security service detects threats that customers’ existing defenses may not be designed for such as spam or phishing sources, or attacks.

“Our goal is to enable our customers to deliver an amazing application experience that is not only fast, always on and personalized, but also safe and secure. When it comes to network security, more knowledge equals more power and proactively blocking connections from known attackers prevents our customers from becoming cyber victims. We selected ThreatSTOP because of its experience and track record in delivering effective feeds and, as a result, have significantly enhanced our threat smart solutions,” says Sanjay Kapoor, VP of global marketing, A10 Networks.

A10 Networks’ Threat Intelligence Service will be available for Thunder ADC and Thunder TPS product lines.
