F5 Security Solutions

Complete Visibility and Control at Scale

Like packages shipped from Point A to Point B, applications—along with their users and data—are exposed to enormous risk as they travel from device to data center server and back again.F5 secures access to applications from anywhere while protecting them wherever they reside. Based on an elastic security services fabric, F5 helps businesses protect sensitive data and intellectual property while minimizing application downtime and maximizing end-user productivity.

Identity and Access Management

Secure User Access to Apps. Application-focused access and identity services are critical to maintaining a positive security posture while enabling users to access applications from anywhere at anytime. With access and identity architectures based on full user, application, and network context awareness, F5 enables single-sign on and federation of application access across the data center and into the cloud, while maintaining the integrity of data through comprehensive endpoint inspection and anti-malware services.

Data Center Security

Protect the Application Where It Resides. The increasing sophistication, frequency, and diversity of today’s network attacks are overwhelming conventional stateful security devices at the edge of the data center. The F5 Application Delivery Firewall (ADF) solution is a modern threat mitigation platform that provides complete protection from the bottom to the top of the network stack. A convergence of highly scalable security products and services, ADF architectures are ideal for protecting Internet-facing data-center-applications, wherever they reside.

Four Types of Attacks, One Common Challenge

DDoS attacks are rapidly evolving in frequency and unpredictability. While the objective is still to cause a service outage, attacks and attackers are becoming more sophisticated. While the threat landscape continues to expand, F5 has found that attacks continue to fall within four types: volumetric, asymmetric, computational, and vulnerability-based.

Defensive mechanisms have evolved to deal with these different categories, and today’s high-profile organizations have learned to deploy them in specific arrangements to maximize their security posture. By working with these companies and fine-tuning their components, F5 has developed a recommended DDoS protection architecture that can accommodate specific data center size and industry requirements.
