SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/14 -- A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN) today announced that Symantec's Certificate Intelligence Center now supports A10 Thunder ADCs (application delivery controllers), providing customers with a consolidated and simplified method for managing critical security information such as location of certificates, key sizes, ciphers used and validity dates.
As more and more applications become web-based and require encryption, privacy for computing transactions, such as web sites, email and other applications, is now more top of mind than ever. Organizations are challenged to keep up with threats and evolving standards, and need real-time, aggregated data to continually assess and strengthen their security posture. A critical component of that is management and organization of digital certificates and their keys. Through its partnership with Symantec, A10 simplifies and consolidates key management, allowing customers to dramatically reduce the number of keys required by centralizing certificates for thousands of web servers, versus provisioning a certificate for each server directly. In addition, with the Symantec Certificate Intelligence Center integration, customers can gain real-time visibility of all certificates on all A10 devices in the network. Other benefits include expiration alerts to avoid disruption, optimizing certificate usage, eliminating gaps in security coverage, and reducing operational costs.
Symantec's Certificate Intelligence Center provides necessary visibility and reporting to ensure Thunder ADCs are using the latest standards supported, via the aXAPI integration and programmability. Emerging standards in SSL/TLS include:
- Key size migration status compliance from 1024- to 2048-bit keys
- Emerging use case of 4096-bit keys, one certificate authority reported this accounted for 20%
- New standards such as Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) and ECDHE are being demanded to ensure future compromise encrypted traffic cannot be achieved in the wake of the revelations of the Edward Snowden and NSA incident
"Together A10 and Symantec provide a complete view of an organizations' digital certificates and keys, enabling efficient operation, user confidence, and ultimately brand reputation," said Jason Matlof, A10 vice president of marketing. "We are very happy to be working with a leader like Symantec to make it easier for our customers to keep their infrastructures up to date and secured."
"Organizations rely on Symantec's SSL certificates to protect information and assure customers of their authenticity," said Tom Powledge, vice president, Information Security at Symantec. "Through the integration of our Certificate Intelligence Center and A10, we are pleased to now provide support to A10's rapidly growing customer base with Symantec's best-in-class SSL services to help increase operational efficiency, maintain business continuity, and mitigate security and non-compliance risks."

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
