A10 calls its product “IP-to-ID,” which refers to how it obtains information about users from their Internet addresses (IP addresses). There are several companies that do this. A10 Networks says its appliance goes a step further by verifying an end user’s identity with their IP or Mac addresses and then scrutinizing logs within the existing networking and security tools managed by the large companies that A10 serves.
A10 Networks has now raised a total of $16 million since being founded two years ago.
