The solutions offer single-service or multi-tenant virtual platforms to optimize IT organizations’ CAPEX and OPEX. The A10 Thunder® Application Delivery Controller on Dell Technologies and A10 Thunder Multi-tenant Virtual Platform on Dell Technologies is expected to be available in Q3 2020 initially for the Americas market. A10 Networks today announced a set of solutions that deliver application security and availability for customers who are increasingly facing the operational and security complexities of hybrid-cloud infrastructures.

This provides customers with a single-source vendor to ease lifecycle management. The solutions offer single-service or multi-tenant virtual platforms to optimize IT organizations’ CAPEX and OPEX. Hybrid-cloud Reliance Drives Requirements Digital transformation initiatives are driving rapid adoption of hybrid and multi-cloud environments to serve customers and facilitate workforce transformation, particularly with the recent spikes in work-from-home requirements. At the same time, companies are facing the expanding challenges of realigning and automating security and IT operations to encompass this complex hybrid-cloud world. Operational efficiency, management, visibility and security remain top concerns for organizations. According to a recent survey by the BPI Network, while 84 percent expect to increase their reliance on public or private clouds over the next 24 months, improving hybrid and multi-cloud security is seen as their most critical challenge, followed by a lack of hybrid/multi-cloud talent and expertise, the need for centralized visibility, and the capacity to more effectively manage application and infrastructure complexity.1 In addition, Google has reported2 that 97 percent of Chrome page loads are encrypted, highlighting the need to encrypt server traffic to customers, while also decrypting internal user traffic for security devices to block user attacks.
