A10 has also definitely reduced the amount of manual intervention required during an attack. Before we had these systems in place, if an IP address or server was attacked above a certain level, we would manually no-route or "black-hole" the traffic, and basically remove that IP address from the internet. That was all manual work, while customers were complaining and their customers were complaining. People were opening tickets. With this solution in place, all that manual work no longer has to happen. After detection of an attack, the scrubbing is initiated automatically. In the case of a huge attack, we will still no-route the traffic which is going to the IP address under attack, but that process is fully automated. So deploying these systems has reduced a lot of the manual work.

The TPS has reduced the amount of manual intervention required during an attack. When we have an attack, and we need to block some stuff everywhere, we just click on a button and push the rules. Then, it's deployed in Asia, Europe, and US. We don't have to do anything more.

It has very much reduced the amount of manual intervention required during an attack. That is especially true with the newest upgrades that just came out where it does automated pcaps. Everything that we need at this point in time is automated. The device automatically goes into mitigation. It gets the pcaps for us and, a large percentage of the time, it just blocks the traffic that we're looking for. Having those pcaps also helps out because in the future, when we're looking at attacks where we may not have either signature or a proper remediation, we can actually build that in based on the data that we're receiving from those pcaps.

The solution has reduced amount of manual intervention required during an attack. We have the inline solution and when it comes to the customers that we have on it inline, it has saved us some troubleshooting time. If we can see that there is an active zone, we know that their traffic is being mitigated.
