What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the DDoS mitigation availability, the ability to be able to block different types of attacks, and large attacks. That's the main function of… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Due to the availability and power of these devices, we've been able to ramp off our upstream cloud-scrubbing provider and handle all attacks on our own. Right now 100… more»

What needs improvement?

We currently do not use the solution's machine-learning-powered Zero-day Automated Protection because of an issue with it. We have a ticket open with the team to try to… more»

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

We are doing multiyear licensing. We signed up for three years to get a discount. We're doing that for most of our vendors at this point in time. As far as I'm aware… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were previously using the Arbor APS platform. Some of the reasons we switched were that the TMS platform we were looking at didn't have the functionality to do ECMP and… more»

What other advice do I have?

The type of configuration and the type of network you're planning on running really matters. A10 does a good job of letting you know what's available and what works for… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at products such as Radware and another product but I don't remember the name of it. Ultimately, based on some information and data from other gaming companies… more»

What is most valuable?

The primary benefit that we see from their systems is that their filtering technology has the ability to detect and drop the malicious traffic from the legitimate traffic… more»

How has it helped my organization?

When we started deploying this and we measured the impact on the number of customer complaints, we saw a significant reduction in the overall number of customer tickets… more»

What needs improvement?

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

The financials are always a challenge with this type of technology. That's not really a product-functionality thing but it's the area where we were pushing A10 the most… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

What other advice do I have?

From our perspective, the technology works well, and it has a low cost to maintain and manage. One of the biggest lessons for me, in using this solution, was that there… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did a lot of analysis in the second half of 2015. We evaluated different technologies and we ended up using A10. We went with it based on the price-performance. We had… more»

What is most valuable?

All it does is mitigation. It mitigates and scrubs bad traffic. We send the bad traffic to it, it determines the good traffic and allows the good traffic to come through. That's the only feature we… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Availability is absolutely critical to our business. We get attacked two and three times a day at times. Without it we'd be hamstrung, bandwidth-wise. Although the attacks happen every day, they're… more»

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

Pricing is very reasonable.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

What we signed off on when we signed the contract with them was very specifically DDoS mitigation. We went over all the specs of what we intended the system to do. They met all the specs better than… more»

What other advice do I have?

Don't even think twice about doing it. It's a given in this day and age; you just need to do it. You need to have some form of DDoS mitigation in place. And if you don't, God be with you. It's not a… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

In the past, we've used other cloud-based solutions.

What is most valuable?

We use all the features, but our customers have started asking for key features around SIP. We are also using some proxy features. The solution’s response time to an… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We started with them and built our network based on this solution. We started with them directly from scratch. The automation makes our team more efficient and productive… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution’s machine-learning-powered Zero-day Automated Protection (ZAP) works for enterprise customers, but for MSSPs, we have too much traffic and analytics… more»

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

We are waiting for our subscription model on our next four boxes.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We had some internal stuff previously. For solutions that we purchased, this was the first. We have had the solution since the beginning. We have used it as our own… more»

What other advice do I have?

The solution is not for newbies. You need to know some security stuff. The box is very flexible and capable with a lot of possibilities. We are using A10, not just as a… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Radware and Fortinet. Radware had good reporting. A10 does not have good reporting. A10 had a good B2B code and the TPS box has good capacity. The key… more»

What is most valuable?

We're just using a portion of it, the mitigation aspect.

How has it helped my organization?

Our setup is something of a hybrid solution. We're using the third-party software, the Kentik solution, but we also have some clients that are directly connected to TPS. There is a 30-second delay in… more»

What needs improvement?

If there's one aspect of A10 that needs improvement it would be the training. All of their training is done online, at least in what we've been exposed to. I would like to have a classroom environment… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did not have a previous solution.

What other advice do I have?

Do your research to understand your solution options. Then, have a PoC bake-off and task the system. Identify ad-hoc anomalies in your test-bed and look at the time to mitigation. Look at different… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did a proof of concept and had a bake-off between Arbor and A10 and Kentik. Because of the reports that we wanted and how we wanted to handle things, the third-party and the A10 solution were… more»

What do you think of A10 Thunder TPS?

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for our support ticketing and invoice generation. We're resellers and we provide it to our customers.  Our other use cases are for keeping a record of all the invoices and we use it for our sales to track the accrued sales. 

How has it helped my organization?

We can keep track of all the customer's requirements. We can forecast our trails and we can forecast our overall financial things.

What needs improvement?

We are really trying to improve our sales module. When we need to see our exact payments and invoices we can track which payments and invoices are due so that we can make sure that all the invoices are done on time. I would like for them to develop an advanced reporting feature.
