A10 Network’s Thunder Threat Protection System (TPS) Awarded DDoS Defence Effectiveness Certification by NimbusDDOS

A10 is the Industry’s First DDoS Protection Solution to Receive Certification Backed by NimbusDDOS Rigorous Testing

Theale, UK. –11th October, 2018 – A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN), a provider of intelligent and automated cybersecurity solutions, today announced that the A10 Thunder® Threat Protection System (TPS) has been awarded the DDoS defence effectiveness certification by NimbusDDOS. A10 Thunder TPS now becomes the only DDoS solution in the market to be awarded this certification from NimbusDDOS.

NimbusDDOS is a recognised Industry leader in DDoS attack testing, certification, and preparedness. The organisation distinguishes itself from traditional testing companies by using the Cloud as the delivery mechanism and providing delivery methods that are focused on real world situations. In order to achieve certification, A10’s Thunder TPS was put through stringent testing. TPS was assaulted with multi-vector DDoS attacks at scale, representing 95% of the attacks seen in the wild, from the NimbusDDOS cloud-based attack simulation platform. TPS correctly detected, classified and mitigated the attacks while ensuring that legitimate user traffic experienced no perceived degradation or dropped legitimate packets.

“I’m very impressed with A10 accepting the NimbusDDOS challenge and becoming the first DDoS mitigation vendor to pass our certification process,” said Andrew Shoemaker, Founder and Chief Engineer with NimbusDDOS. “This shows a commitment by A10 to provide enterprises with the best possible protections. The NimbusDDOS tests aren’t performed in a controlled lab, they are launched across the Internet and functionally identical to those of a real-world attacker. Regardless of the attack vector, the A10 Thunder TPS shrugged them off with minimal effort, and no loss of legitimate traffic.”

The world’s highest-performance DDoS protection solution, A10 Thunder TPS detects and mitigates terabit-sized DDoS attacks at the network edge. It’s unmatched with an industry-leading 440 Mpps with 300 Gbps in a single appliance — offering up to 11 times the performance of legacy solutions. Thunder TPS scales to defend against the DDoS of Things and traditional zombie botnets, detecting DDoS attacks through in-line detection or flow record analysis from edge routers and switches. Unlike outdated DDoS products, Thunder TPS is built on A10’s market-proven Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS®) – the platform that delivers scalable form factors that reduce overall TCO with a complete detection, mitigation, and reporting solution.

“We are proud to be the first and only DDoS solution provider to be awarded Defence Effectiveness Certification by NimbusDDOS,” said Paul Nicholson, Director of Product Marketing at A10 Networks. “Today’s DDoS attacks have evolved and become more sophisticated and potentially harmful than ever before. Our focus is providing our customers with the most effective, scalable DDoS defence that can surgically defend against attacks while making sure there is no disruption in legitimate traffic.”

The benefits organisations see from deploying A10 Thunder TPS include:

  • Better Detection – One-DDoS Protection provides a unique approach to full-spectrum DDoS defence, placing detection capabilities within targeted infrastructure, including Thunder TPS, ADC, CGN and CFW solutions. This provides advanced context, flow and packet level visibility to stop today’s most sophisticated targeted attacks.
  • Unmatched Scalability – Delivers 22 times the flow-based detection capacity and 15 times as many simultaneous active mitigations as legacy systems.
  • Automated Wartime Protection – Improved attack response times with intelligent automation featuring five levels of programmatic mitigation escalation and de-escalation. Removing the need for frontline personnel to make time-consuming manual changes.
  • Reduced Security OPEX – Delivers high performance in a compact factor with lower power usage, rack space and cooling requirements. Also, aGalaxy TPS streamlines operations via centralised management, remediation, and analytics for Thunder TPS deployments.

Carbon Black Introduces Cb ThreatHunter, Delivering Advanced Threat Hunting and Incident Response (IR) Capabilities on the Cb Predictive Security Cloud™ (PSC)

Cb ThreatHunter leverages unfiltered data on the PSC, an endpoint security platform with a single agent and single console to consolidate prevention, detection, response, managed services and advanced threat hunting

READING, UK – 10th October, 2018 –– Carbon Black (NASDAQ: CBLK), a leader in next-generation endpoint security delivered via the cloud, today introduced Cb ThreatHunter, delivering powerful, new, advanced threat hunting and IR capabilities on the Cb Predictive Security Cloud (PSC). The new offering will be the fourth service delivered on the PSC this year. The Cb ThreatHunter announcement was made from the company’s sold-out annual user conference, #CbConnect18, in New York.

“One year ago at Cb Connect in San Francisco, we outlined our vision to rapidly extend the Cb Predictive Security Cloud to make it easier for our customers to move off legacy AV and address multiple security use cases through a single cloud platform and single sensor,” said Patrick Morley, Carbon Black’s Chief Executive Officer. “With the addition of Cb ThreatHunter, this market-leading platform will have five offerings and delivers customers the ability to prevent, detect, respond to, predict and now, hunt threats in the cloud using a single agent, single console and single platform.”

Adding Advanced Threat Hunting to the PSC
Cb ThreatHunter is delivered through the PSC, Carbon Black’s powerful endpoint protection platform that consolidates multiple critical endpoint security capabilities supporting both IT and security operations, including: next-generation antivirus (NGAV) + endpoint detection and response (EDR); advanced threat hunting and IR; virtualised data center security; real-time endpoint query and remediation; and managed threat hunting and triage.

Threat Hunting Powered by Continuous Collection of Unfiltered Data
Most EDR and IR tools on the market collect only a limited set of historical data. As a result, SOCs and IR teams struggle to get their hands on the information they need to investigate, proactively hunt and remediate.

Cb ThreatHunter solves this problem by continuously collecting unfiltered data, giving security teams all the information they need to: proactively hunt threats, uncover suspicious behavior, disrupt active attacks, repair damage quickly and address gaps in defenses. Investigations that often take days or weeks can be completed in just minutes with Cb ThreatHunter.

“Cb ThreatHunter has simplified incident response by allowing quick discovery of both simple and advanced threats, and quickly making decisions to take conclusive actions,” said Denis Xhepa, IT Systems Security Engineer of MidCap Financial Services. “Its simplicity and responsiveness are amazing, especially when you are running an investigation where every minute matters. When I find something, I can prevent it for the future, and also look for other related or similar things. All this can be done very intuitively. Anomaly detection is also going to be enhanced by the backend intelligence applied to the data. Endpoint security used to be difficult.”

“The combination of rapidly searchable, unfiltered endpoint data for advanced threat hunting, combined with an array of prevention and response capabilities built-in to one endpoint sensor is a significant step forward. Cb ThreatHunter further enhances our ability to deliver rapid incident detection and response to our global customers,” said Marc Brawner, Principal at Kroll’s Cyber Risk practice.

Inspired by Cb Response, an EDR market pioneer with more than 2,000 active customers, Cb ThreatHunter is a brand new product, built from the ground up on the PSC, offering security teams advanced threat hunting and IR capabilities, including:

More Powerful Search Fields: Cb ThreatHunter equips security teams with the ability to flexibly hunt threats, even if an endpoint is offline. With this level of visibility, researchers can see what happened at every stage of an attack with intuitive attack-chain visualisations, and uncover advanced threats, while minimising attacker dwell time. This insight provides immediate answers with comprehensive behavioral context to stop attacks as quickly as possible.

Enhanced Threat Intel Matching: Cb ThreatHunter’s sophisticated detection combines custom and cloud-delivered threat intel, automated watchlists and integrations with the rest of the security stack to efficiently scale hunting across the enterprise. This advanced level of detection allows security teams to proactively explore environments for abnormal activity, leverage cloud-delivered threat intelligence and automate repeat hunts. Additionally, the PSC’s platform extensibility allows developers to create custom watchlists to power real-time detection and correlate data across the security stack.

Elastic Cloud Scalability: Cb ThreatHunter is natively built on the PSC, allowing security teams to rapidly deploy and scale the solution across their enterprise without investing in (or maintaining) on-premise infrastructure. By eliminating these costs and processes, Cb ThreatHunter enables teams to simplify their operations and focus their energy on hunting and responding to threats.

Cb ThreatHunter will be generally available in November 2018.

Fairfax, VA., USA – 9 October 2018TEOCO, the leading provider of planning & optimization, assurance and analytics solutions to over 300 communication service providers (CSPs) worldwide, today announced the release of Helix 10.1, the newest version of its Service Assurance platform. Helix 10.1 is designed to help CSPs collect, process, store and analyze the massive amounts of data created by modern networks as operators continue to expand their 5G build-out.

Helix 10.1 features Sentinel – a high-performing, intuitive analytics-driven user interface. The re-engineered UI makes Helix the first service assurance tool in the market that truly unifies all relevant operational data in one place. Sentinel equips NSOC and Engineering teams with advanced visual analytical tools to investigate and drill down into potential problems by efficiently cross-correlating all available data.

The new version also introduces Anomaly Detection to Helix, a machine learning algorithm capable of automatically identifying network performance issues. By efficiently analyzing massive datasets of network and service KPIs, the algorithm is capable of detecting what human engineers cannot, and uses automated troubleshooting to offer a better understanding of the patterns that may cause service issues, as well as taking proactive measures to prevent these patterns recurring.

Additionally, Helix’s Service Impact adds a predictive capability that enables a CSP to anticipate how maintenance will affect the network, using both current alarms and advanced simulations to judge the potential impact.

The evolution to 5G, and the tangible growth of the NFV-based dynamic parts of the network, creates a step-change in the amount and complexity of the relevant data that needs to be handled and analyzed. The new modules and features in Helix 10.1 enable efficient processing of the massive datasets, and quickly allows the identification of service issues while performing automated troubleshooting and remediation.

“The use of Machine Learning and AI is a leap forward from existing rule-based techniques,” said Shachar Ebel, CTO, TEOCO. “Helix combines this technology with a new user interface that further empowers the human aspect of service assurance. Helix 10.1 will enable CSPs to meet the challenges that new network technologies bring by bolstering both the machine and human-powered dimension of Service Assurance.”

READING, UK, October 9, 2018 – DataCore Software today unveiled a new series of initiatives designed to simplify, automate and reward expansion of software-defined storage (SDS) and hyperconverged Virtual SAN throughout the globe. In addition to product enhancements and a simplified licensing/pricing model, the company launched a new customer loyalty programme and community platform to foster community development through the sharing of best practices and success stories.

The moves ensure customers derive higher value from existing hardware and software investments, thereby driving accelerated adoption and expansion of software-defined storage technologies worldwide. In DataCore’s soon-to-be-released 7th State of the Storage Market Survey, automating frequent or complex storage operations; simplifying management of different types of storage; and extending the life of existing storage assets topped the list of business drivers for SDS. The survey results reflect the market’s appreciation of the economic advantages of software-defined storage and its power to maximize IT infrastructure performance, availability and utilization. DataCore’s new customer-centric programmes are specifically designed to support customers in fully realizing these advantages.

Stepped-up discounts based on lifetime capacity consumption as well as no-charge feature upgrades now make it even more attractive to scale up and out for added resiliency and throughput in pursuit of real-time, always-on data. DataCore’s new simplified licensing/pricing model also offers greater flexibility, allowing customers to transition at their own pace from conventional 3-tier SANs to 2-tier servers SANs, or quickly collapse into hyperconverged systems – whether on-premises, at the edge or in the cloud.

A key element of DataCore’s customer-focused campaign is the new “Inside the Core” community platform, which serves as a meeting point for customers to exchange information and learn from company experts and other like-minded peers. Benefits include privileged access to product previews and direct influence on future product developments, while having some fun sharing their experiences and winning prizes.

“Every IT department is looking to reap the benefits of the software-defined data centre. Our customers are quickly realizing the performance, uptime and flexibility advantages of software-defined storage, in addition to spending less time on repetitive tasks,” said Gerardo A. Dada, CMO of DataCore Software. “These programmes are specifically designed to help them expand the benefits of the technology to cover more of their IT footprint including additional workloads or datacenters.”

New Members of DataCore Leadership Team, Including Chief Product Officer Rizwan Pirani, Spearhead Customer Initiatives
All new programmes have been developed under the direction of DataCore’s expanded senior leadership team, headed by CEO Dave Zabrowski and CMO Gerardo Dada.
