A10 Networks Delivers Highest Performance DDoS Protection, HTTP/3 and QUIC Protection  

Thunder TPS Provides 1.2 Tbps Blocking Capacity with Machine Learning

Fuelled by massive IoT botnets and new reflected amplification exploits, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks continue to grow in size and sophistication and have broken the 1 Tbps barrier. The current pandemic has only increased the threat as cyber attackers find new targets in healthcare, government, online gaming and remote working services. Service providers, MSSPs and enterprises require a new generation of DDoS protection technology to protect their networks.

To respond to this threat, A10 is offering a leap forward for service providers with DDoS protection at the scale required to stop today’s cyber threats. We are releasing the highest-performance DDoS protection appliance to help service providers and MSSPs mitigate the largest DDoS attacks.

The A10 Thunder® Threat Protection System (TPS) 7655 provides up to 1.2 Tbps blocking capacity and 380 Gbps scrubbing capacity. Combining Zero-day Automated Protection (ZAP) powered by artificial intelligence (AI) via machine learning (ML) and advanced software mitigations, Thunder TPS delivers unprecedented protection in a compact 1.5U form factor, enabling customers to efficiently scale-out their DDoS defenses as the threat landscape expands. The Thunder 7655 TPS will be available in Q3 2020.

New Protection for QUIC Protocol Driving Next-generation Applications

In addition, A10 is bringing first-to-market support for HTTP/3 (QUIC) DDoS protection in software.

To ensure the user experience for business and consumer services that are migrating to the cloud, QUIC is rapidly being adopted by content and cloud providers, leading browser developers, such as Mozilla and Google, and is backed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The QUIC protocol provides faster connect times with built-in security versus the traditional combination of TCP and TLS. It also offers a dramatic reduction in latency that will enable better user experience for content-rich web applications. Based on these benefits, HTTP/3 has also adopted QUIC for use on the transport layer.

A10 is the first major software and hardware DDoS vendor to provide DDoS protection for HTTP/3 and the QUIC protocol. Thunder TPS protects this new transport mechanism from DDoS attacks and enables a safer next generation of web services using this protocol. HTTP/3 and QUIC protocol support is available now for all Thunder TPS customers.

New maintenance projects on Bombardier, Boeing and Airbus

Performing checks also at lofty heights – a Global Express at the AMAC Aerospace hangars in Basel, Switzerland

AMAC Aerospace is pleased to announce to have awarded several new maintenance projects. A Head of State Bombardier Challenger 605 has recently arrived in Basel, Switzerland, to undergo a 12-month inspection.

AMAC Aerospace are proud to announce that a Bombardier Challenger 605 arrived mid-May in Basel. The Head of State aircraft will undergo a 12-month inspection.

A Bombardier Global Express entered AMAC’s hangar mid-May as well. The privately-owned aircraft will undergo a 30-month check. AMAC has also been selected by a new private owner of a Bombardier Challenger 605 to carry out a Pre-Purchase Inspection (PPI) on short notice.

New maintenance projects on Boeing and Airbus aircraft

AMAC was awarded further maintenance projects on two Boeing aircraft. A privately-owned Boeing BBJ737 arrived by the end of May in Basel to undertake a 6a-check and a due maintenance. In conjunction with the maintenance checks, AMAC will also carry out Service Bulletins tasks (SBs) on the aircraft. On a second Boeing, a BBJ737, AMAC’s maintenance team will carry out a 1-, 6- and 48-month check on the privately-owned aircraft.

An Airbus ACJ320 recently arrived in Basel. AMAC will complete a base maintenance check and carry out a full galley heating system modification. Due to the extension of the project, the privately-owned aircraft has to stay in Basel six weeks longer than planned but equipped with a state-of-the-art heating system.

On a second Airbus ACJ318 AMAC will perform a maintenance check and an avionics upgrade on the privately-owned aircraft.
