Discover hidden threats by decrypting SSL traffic and sending it unencrypted to inline and non-inline security devices for inspection.
Monitor and restrict access to malicious and undesirable websites to improve employee productivity and reduce security risks.
Enable third-party data loss prevention (DLP) and antivirus scanners to proactively inspect and block threats with ICAP.
Replace an existing proxy or unburden a proxy from intensive SSL decryption and processes with a high-speed explicit proxy and proxy chaining.
Third-party security device scaling
Load balance firewalls and other security devices to increase overall performance and network capacity.
Detect and route around failed devices with application delivery and health monitoring to maximize network uptime.
L4 Stateful firewall

Thunder CFW is a logical extension of A10’s security strategy," said Brad Casemore, Research Director, Datacenter Networks, at IDC. "It takes A10’s SSL Insight into new realms, allowing customers to increase employee productivity and reduce risk with URL filtering and threat intelligence. It should draw consideration from a wide range of A10 customers, including service providers, cloud providers, and large enterprises.
