A10 Thunder Series Customer Review

5/5 Stars

Please describe why you selected solutions from A10 Networks (advanced features, lower TCO, etc.) and the value that you have gotten from them (application performance, better security, etc.).

We looked at a number of different solutions and chose A10 because of the extensive features available at an extremely competitive price point. Our experience with A10 has been consistent with their reputation. We have been 100% satisfied with the product. They deliver on what they attest to. We also worked with their engineering team to use the A10’s to overcome a secure LDAP issue that we had no other solution for. The A10 proved to be the perfect answer to provide the secure solution we were looking for at no additional cost. Fantastic product. I cannot think of a single outage or a single issue we have had with the A10 platform. I would have to give is a superior rating across the board for reliability and performance.
