A10 Networks, the leading provider of application delivery controllers, has collaborated with RSA—EMC’s security division—to help increase security of encrypted data traffic passing through its (A10’s) Thunder application delivery controller’s (ADC). Through its RSA Ready Technology Partner Program, RSA has validated interoperability with innovative SSL Insight feature, which allows RSA Security Analytics to inspect SSL and uncover hidden threats in encrypted traffic.
“We’re honored to collaborate with RSA to further empower security operations teams to detect and investigate the most advanced security attacks”, said Paul Nicholson, Director, Product Marketing, A10 Networks. “The A10 Thunder ADC delivers a wide array of SSL inspection, load balancing and high availability features to satisfy and exceed customers’ requirements. Joint A10 and RSA customers can now utilize these high-performance SSL Insight technologies to gain full visibility into all communications”, added Nicholson.
“RSA Security Analytics is a market leader in packet capture and analysis. We combine that with log collection, endpoint data and Netflow to go beyond traditional SIEM and provide a high level of visibility, inspection and analysis,” said Chad Loeven, Director of Partnerships, RSA. “By adding enhanced SSL interoperability to our RSA Security Analytics platform, we are helping to provide our customers with unparalleled awareness and control over increasingly complex security threats at scale”, stressed Loeven.
Security teams are tasked with combating increasing SSL bandwidth and complexity, including the lack of decryption support for outbound SSL traffic. The A10 Thunder ADC is the first load balancing solution to offer SSL Insight features such as URL classification. It also provides the highest performance SSL inspection solution available to enable large enterprises to decrypt SSL traffic at rapid speeds. Thunder ADC customers gain essential visibility into SSL traffic, allowing them to eliminate the SSL blind spot in corporate defenses, detect advanced attacks, and scale RSA Security Analytics deployments with load balancing.
