A10 Thunder TPS Review

A10 Thunder TPS (Threat Protection System) is the world’s highest-performance DDoS protection solution, leading the industry in precision, intelligent automation, scalability, and performance.

What is our primary use case?

One of the largest persistent threats to service uptime is Distributed Denial of Service Attacks (DDoS). The networking industry and business analysts are seeing a trend in increasing DDoS attacks. These attacks are occurring more frequently and with greater intensity and increased sophistication. Legacy DDoS protection solutions suffer from the following fatal limitations that have made them ineffective at protecting against these attacks:

• Lack of flexibility

• Inability to scale

What is most valuable?


Detect and mitigate DDoS attacks of many types, including volumetric, protocol, or resource attacks; application-level attacks; or IoT-based attacks. Hardware acceleration offloads the CPUs and makes Thunder TPS particularly adept to deal with simultaneous multi-vector attacks

For how long have I used the solution?

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

How are customer service and technical support?

How was the initial setup?

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The A10 aGalaxy management system provides centralized management of Thunder TPS systems and policies, orchestrates detection and mitigation of DDoS attacks, and delivers a single-pane-of-glass view of the generated reports across all managed Thunder TPS appliances.

No need to license each feature to activate it, it got a perpetual licensing and everything is there, you just have to configure and enable the feature when you need it.

What other advice do I have?

Select Thunder TPS hardware models to benefit from our Security and Policy Engine (SPE) hardware acceleration, leveraging FPGA-based FTA technology and other hardware-optimized packet-processing for highly scalable flow distribution and hardware DDoS protection capabilities.
