SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A10 Networks, Inc., the technology leader in Application Networking, announced that on February 12, 2013, Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted Brocade Communications Systems Inc.’s (“Brocade”) request for a permanent injunction related to certain trade secrets. The Court explicitly excluded from the order A10 products with redesigned code that A10 has lawfully developed. After the verdict and out of prudence, A10 began lawfully developing redesigned code and will soon begin shipping compliant products. The order has no impact on customers’ use and possession of, or on A10’s ability to support, AX Series units shipped before the order. “A10 has always acted lawfully and properly, and it will appeal the jury's verdict and the court's rulings before the Federal Circuit,” said Robert Cochran, General Counsel at A10 Networks. “As is typical, our competitors overstate the significance of this ruling. They also understate our legal rights, including the rights to ship compliant AX Series products.” A10 Networks Inc.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
