A10 Networks acquires cloud firm Appcito

San Francisco: US-based A10 Networks, an application networking and security company, on Friday announced the acquisition of Appcito — a provider of Software-As-A-Service (SaaS)-based, multi-cloud Application Delivery Controllers (ADC) solutions.

The acquisition positions A10 Networks as a comprehensive secure application services leader and will help customers become more secure as they bridge traditional and cloud application environments.

“We are helping our customers become both ‘cloud-ready’ and ‘cloud-native.’ We are excited about how Appcito fits into our vision to become the most comprehensive secure application services company in the industry,” said Lee Chen, CEO, A10 Networks, in a statement.

New A10 “Harmony-based cloud” solution integrating Appcito technology will be available later this year.

The new solutions will include a cloud services controller for centralised application policy management and orchestration, elastic application traffic management capabilities and support for micro services and container-based applications.

In 2015, Gartner named Appcito as one of the “Cool Vendors in Enterprise Networking.”
