Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Files Class Action Lawsuit Against A10 Networks, Inc

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP reminded investors in A10 Networks, Inc. of the March 30, 2015 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against A10, certain officers of the company and underwriters of the company's initial public offering. A complaint has been filed in the Superior Court of the State of California, Santa Clara County on behalf of all persons who purchased A10 common stock pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration Statement and Prospectus issued in connection with A10's IPO. The complaint alleges that the company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its statements concerning its business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, the action alleges that A10 failed to disclose that: the company's 2013 sales growth had been increased by customer conversion rather than sales to new customers; A10 had experienced lower revenue bookings from its North American service provider customers; the company's sales closing cycles had been longer than usual; A10 lacked engineering staff and management oversight sufficient to close certain deals; and the company employed ineffective reporting controls over inventory. Following the IPO, the price of the company's stock has declined by over $10.00 per share, or over 67%, from the IPO price of $15.00 per share.

A10 Networks Collaborates with Cisco to Deliver Dynamic Application Networking Services

A10 Networks announced the integration of its Thunder Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) fabric. Offering dynamic L4-L7 application networking services, this joint solution enables enterprises to amplify their data center output by automatically provisioning application delivery and security services with a significant increase in both allocation speed and business agility -- all at a reduced cost. The open framework of Cisco ACI enables ecosystem partners such as A10 to seamlessly interoperate with Cisco ACI fabric. Together, the Cisco ACI and A10 Thunder ADC solutions provide an automated approach to networking services based on application-specific policies that allow data center applications to dynamically scale on demand. Furthermore, the ACI and Thunder ADC synthesis empowers Cisco and A10 to independently innovate and address pervasive requirements of network programmability. As a result, more advanced ADC and security functionality such as service chaining, WAF, SSLi and GSLB will be integrated with Cisco ACI. Cisco ACI technology provides the ability to insert Layer 4 through Layer 7 services into the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) via simplified definitions. The A10 APIC device package automates ACI service chaining and the insertion of physical, virtual, and hybrid A10 Thunder appliances. The device package has been rigorously tested by A10 Networks in Cisco ACI environments to offer rich L4-L7 network application services and templates as well as HTTP optimization services for Cisco's ACI fabric. The A10 device package uses open APIs and scripts that allow Cisco APIC to configure consistent automation and orchestration of Application Delivery Controller (ADC) services within the fabric required to deploy applications in a fast, highly secure and reliable manner. boldBenefits of A10 Thunder ADC and Cisco ACI fabric integration - boldEnhanced Agility: Data center operators can choose from a selection of A10 appliances to spawn new instances on demand and support dynamic L4-L7 service insertion according to tenant-defined or provider-defined policies. Operators can now dynamically respond to business needs by providing consistent services in a shared, multi-tenant environment via policy-based automated provisioning. boldRapid Provisioning: Users can build an automatically provisioned application networking infrastructure. Customers benefit from programmability and open standards-based RESTful APIs to rapidly instantiate consistent provisioning of networking services to enforce SLAs, compliance and security. boldService Deployment Flexibility: Data center operators can easily automate L4-L7 data center operation services independently from where services reside. The ACI policy framework provides a common policy abstraction regardless of whether services are physical and virtual, thus enabling choices and flexibility of service deployments. boldLower TCO: A10 ACOS features and configurations are transferable across appliance form factors. The blended ACI-Thunder ACI solution provides all-inclusive licensing and comprehensive programmatic interfaces resulting in quicker integration while facilitating dynamic provisioning of services and efficient resource utilization in a shared multi-tenant environment.
