A10 Networks Announces Appcito Acquisition

Acquisition builds on A10’s value in making customers more agile by bridging app needs spanning data centers, public clouds, private clouds, and hybrid clouds

A10 Networks has acquired Appcito, a provider of a versatile SaaS-based, multi-cloud ADC solution utilizing a micro services and containers architecture. The acquisition positions A10 Networks as a comprehensive secure application services leader, and it represents a strategic step in the company’s vision to help customers become more secure and agile as they bridge traditional and cloud application environments
In 2015, Gartner named Appcito as one of the “Cool Vendors in Enterprise Networking.” The acquisition adds to A10 Networks’ existing momentum around providing secure application service solutions that meet several key demands. These demands include application analytics, visibility, and centralized control. Appcito fits seamlessly into A10 Networks’ A10 Harmony solution architecture. The architecture, which was introduced in early 2015, supports secure application service offerings that span traditional data centers, private clouds, public clouds, and hybrid clouds, said the release.

New A10 Harmony-based cloud offerings that integrate Appcito technology will be available beginning in late 2016. Solutions will include a cloud services controller for centralized application policy management and orchestration, elastic application traffic management capabilities integrated with DevOps processes, deep per-application visibility and analytics, and support for micro services and container-based applications.

A10 Networks CEO Lee Chen said, “This is a strategic acquisition for our customers. We are helping our customers become both ‘cloud-ready’ and ‘cloud-native.’ We are giving them cutting-edge capabilities to control secure application services delivery across their data centers and clouds, such as in the area of analytics and automation. We are very excited about how Appcito fits into our vision to become the most comprehensive secure application services company in the industry.”

Kamal Anand, CEO and Co-founder of Appcito said, “Appcito was founded with a vision to deliver cloud-native application delivery services and help application teams become more nimble, while delivering application performance and security that their end users demand. Becoming part of A10 Networks and their customer-focused innovation culture will bring added benefits to application teams. The acquisition makes solid sense for customers wanting to collectively manage traditional on-premise and cloud application needs.”
