A10 Networks to showcase Automated Cyber Defense at GITEX

A10 Networks has announced its participation at GITEX Technology Week 2019, taking place between 6-10 October at the Dubai World Trade Centre, under the theme ‘Automate Cyber Defense.’

The company will demonstrate its entire portfolio of leading solutions including service provider network security to support IoT in the age of 5G, multi-cloud management, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) with Zero-day Automated Protection, carrier-grade networking and IPV6 migration and application visibility and analytics.

Mohammed Al-Moneer, Regional Vice President of Sales – MENA at A10 Networks says, “In today’s sophisticated security landscape, a breach can happen unexpectedly at any point in time, and every second is critical when it comes to protection and remediation. Automation of cyber security systems can make the difference in those crucial moments during a breach, to help regain control and minimize any damage. We believe the future of cyber security for 5G and multi-cloud rests on Intelligent Automation coupled with machine learning, ensuring that business-critical applications are protected, reliable, and always available.”

“With our position and depth of experience in the security and application delivery networking domain, we see GITEX as the perfect platform to educate the market about the need for security automation and also spread awareness about A10 Networks’ AI-driven application and network security solutions including hyperscale 5G security, DDoS protection and multi-cloud application visibility, analytics and automation.”

This year, the Middle East team will be joined at the A10 Networks booth by several high-level executives including Anthony Webb, Vice President Sales in EMEA. During the event, executives from A10 Networks will run a series of presentations delivered on the booth daily, with the intention of helping educate CIOs and IT managers about technology issues important from a regional standpoint including decryption, multi-cloud, 5G and DDoS.

The booth presentations which will be running daily include:
• Beyond Simple TLS/SSL Decryption: Multi-Layered Enterprise Security
• Automating Load Balancing Configuration in Dynamic Multi-Cloud Kubernetes Deployment
• WHO, WHAT, WHY, WHERE and HOW of DDoS Attacks
• Is Your Enterprise Perimeter Equipped To Defend You From Modern Cyber Attacks?
• The Anatomy of DDoS Attacks, Understanding and Surviving the Three Most Rampant Attacks
• 5G Security is Now

At GITEX, A10 Networks is keen to demonstrate its recently launched Zero-day Automated Protection (ZAP) capabilities that it has added to its leading Thunder Threat Protection System (TPS) family of distributed denial of service (DDoS) defense solutions. The ZAP capabilities automatically recognize the characteristics of DDoS attacks and apply mitigation filters without advanced configuration or manual intervention. This speeds the response to the increasingly sophisticated multi-vector attacks to minimize downtime and errors and lower operating costs.

A10 Networks advanced converged firewall and DDoS protection solutions provide hyperscale, feature richness and AI-driven automation to meet the growing capacity requirements and complex management needs of 5G networks, while also improving the economics and performance of user plane and control plane security in today’s networks. The company secured five design wins in the second half of 2018 for its Thunder 5G Gi-LAN converged firewall from operators planning commercial 5G deployments in early 2019.

“GITEX is the largest technology show in the Middle East, and as such it is an essential platform for A10 Networks to demonstrate our wide portfolio of solutions. It is a good opportunity to nurture important customer and channel relationships as we introduce them to our wider team. In addition to meeting current customers, we can share our leading solutions with new customers to demonstrate how together we can protect and help them maintain business as usual,” concludes Al-Moneer.

A10 Networks will be present at stand number SR–J10 in Sheikh Rashid hall at DWTC.
