A10 Networks Delivers Highest Performance DDoS Protection, HTTP/3 and QUIC Protection

A10 Networks is offering a leap forward for service providers with DDoS protection at the scale required to stop today’s cyber threats. A10 is launching its highest-performance DDoS protection appliance, the A10 Thunder® Threat Protection System (TPS) 7655, helping service providers and MSSPs mitigate the largest DDoS attacks.

The A10 Thunder TPS 7655 provides up to 1.2 Tbps blocking capacity and 380 Gbps scrubbing capacity. Combining Zero-day Automated Protection (ZAP) powered by machine learning (ML) and advanced software mitigations, Thunder TPS delivers unprecedented protection in a compact 1.5U form factor, enabling customers to efficiently scale-out their DDoS defenses as the threat landscape expands. The Thunder 7655 TPS will be available in Q3 2020.

Fueled by massive IoT botnets and new reflected amplification exploits, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks continue to grow in size and sophistication and have broken the 1 Tbps barrier. The current pandemic has only increased the threat as cyber attackers find new targets in healthcare, government, online gaming and remote working services. Service providers, MSSPs and enterprises require a new generation of DDoS protection technology to protect their networks.

In addition, A10 is bringing first-to-market DDoS protection for the QUIC protocol.

To ensure the user experience for business and consumer services that are migrating to the cloud, QUIC is rapidly being adopted by content and cloud providers, leading browser developers, such as Mozilla and Google, and is backed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The QUIC protocol provides faster connect times with built-in security versus the traditional combination of TCP and TLS. It also offers a dramatic reduction in latency that will enable better user experience for content-rich web applications. Based on these benefits, QUIC is the chosen transport for the upcoming HTTP/3 protocol.

A10 is the first major software and hardware DDoS vendor to provide DDoS protection for the QUIC protocol. Thunder TPS protects this new transport mechanism from DDoS and enables a safer next generation of web services using this protocol. DDoS protection for the QUIC protocol is available now for all Thunder TPS customers.
