A10 Networks Announces Integration of Symantec's Certificate Intelligence Center (CIC) With A10 Thunder ADCs

Provides Customers With On-Demand Status of Critical Security Data to Help Keep On Top of Their Evolving Security Posture

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."
