A10 Networks and Cylance have announced a technical partnership to “enhance cybersecurity” for individual endpoints and users from the data centre to the cloud, by incorporating advanced threat protection for encrypted traffic.
As a result of this OEM agreement between the two companies, announced at the Black Hat USA 2016 event in Las Vegas, the Cylance anti-malware engine will be embedded into A10 Networks’ SSL Insight and Thunder Convergent Firewall (CFW).
The combined A10 Networks and Cylance solution aims to bring together secure application network technology with proactive prevention and detection of advanced persistent threats and malware. CylancePROTECT is an “ideal complement” for A10 Networks’ Thunder SSLi and CFW solutions, which offer high-speed SSL decryption for end-user traffic, protection against malware even when encrypted, and protection for incoming and outgoing email traffic.
“For more than a decade, A10 Networks has engineered our products to deliver secure, agile application networking technologies,” said Gunter Reiss, Vice President, Strategic Alliances, A10 Networks. “Cylance’s novel next-gen AV will augment the innovative A10 Thunder SSLi and Thunder CFW solutions to offer increased security for governments, gaming companies, healthcare providers, financial institutions and other markets facing critical security threats.”
“With A10 Networks and Cylance as technology partners, customers can take advantage of next-generation anti-malware threat prevention at both the endpoint and the perimeter,” said Joel Bauman, Vice President, Corporate and Business Development, Cylance. “Cylance is pleased to partner with A10 Networks to provide a solution that not only delivers cutting-edge anti-malware capability through predictive artificial intelligence, but also acts to complement and optimise A10 customers’ existing investments in other security tools and processes.”
Expected to be available in early 2017, the integrated solution will be available as a subscription service to A10 customers.
