A10 Networks’ Non-stop DNS Solution Enables Global Tier-1 Cloud Service Provider to Defeat Cyber Attacks and Scale Infrastructure

A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN), a provider of intelligent and automated cybersecurity solutions, today announced a global tier-1 Cloud Service Provider has selected and deployed Thunder TPS (Threat Protection System) with A10’s Non-stop DNS solution across multiple data centers to ensure resilience from escalating cyber-attacks, and scale its mission critical DNS services.

The escalation of threats against critical infrastructure services has been a wake-up call for the need for new, robust defense solutions to safeguard business critical operations. The 2016 DDoS cyberattacks on Dyn caused major disruptions to many high-profile websites across North America, Europe and around the world by targeting their Domain Name Service (DNS) infrastructures.

Fast-growing Cloud Service Providers must safeguard customer trust and project a reliable brand image. Issues impacting service reliability and service level agreements (SLAs) are a major concern to guarantee growth, and DDoS protection and DNS infrastructure availability are critical to cloud operations. The Cloud Service Provider required a superior mitigation solution, which would integrate with their own internal detection and management control center while providing a high performance, flexible and cost-effective DDoS protection solution.

A10 worked with the Cloud Service Provider to create an innovative Non-stop DNS solution to prevent anticipated DNS meltdowns due to DDoS attacks on their DNS infrastructure. The solution, utilizing Thunder TPS, was first deployed in 2017 to provide Non-stop DNS services for the Cloud Service Provider.

At the heart of the new solution is a ground-breaking authoritative DNS cache from A10 that achieves unprecedented levels of scale and performance while protecting the backend DNS servers. This new capability complements the industry-leading DNS service protection available on the Thunder TPS Mitigator platform to further fortify DDoS defenses. The overall solution provides multi-vector protection which is highly accurate, granular, and provides scalable enforcement, ultimately reducing CAPEX and OPEX.

A10 Thunder TPS Non-stop DNS enables the following key benefits:

  • Highly scalable authoritative DNS cache server to eliminate the impact of DNS DDoS attacks
    • 150x DNS performance vs a typical DNS server
    • Up to 35M queries per second (QPS)
  • Impedes attacker reconnaissance by responding in a manner that is indistinguishable from the backend authoritative DNS servers
  • Absorbs massive attacks while limiting the volume of queries to the backend DNS servers
  • Enhances the experience of legitimate users by reducing DNS response time especially when placed at the network edge in global service provider networks
  • Ease of integration with detection and management systems via OpenAPI (aXAPI) to automate tasks

“High profile outages caused by attacks on critical infrastructure have demanded the creation of new solutions,” said Raj Jalan, CTO, A10 Networks. “The A10 Networks Non-stop DNS solution enables any service provider to avoid costly downtime by keeping DNS infrastructure operational despite the largest targeted attacks.”

When DNS servers are targeted by attackers, Thunder TPS Authoritative DNS Cache can provide Non-stop DNS service with unmatched capability and performance.

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
