While security concerns drive the demand for web application firewalls (WAFs), it can be difficult for enterprises to decide which WAF best fits their needs.
In a recent report, KuppingerCole evaluated many vendors' Web Application Firewall offerings. F5 scored high for attributes including API protection, core WAF capabilities, bot management, DDoS protection, and Admin & DevOps support.
As application technology evolves, so does the threat landscape. Robust security measures must follow suit. Unfortunately, sophisticated web application attacks are a reality and happen every minute worldwide. In addition, new attack vectors that target mobile apps and APIs are emerging. Now, more than ever, comprehensive web and API security tools are needed.
BIG-IQ 8.0 enables better management and visibility of F5 security solutions, improving overall security posture and threat protection. The latest version introduces several security administration and visibility enhancements that help security pros not only lower the risk of a new breach but also simplify and streamline day-to-day management tasks.
Advanced threats require an advanced WAF equipped with live and actionable threat intelligence to make security controls smarter—controls that automatically detect and block active attack campaigns and malware.
The value of accurate, insightful data is realized by detecting and acting upon a threat before the attack occurs, not a month after the breach. The F5 Threat Campaigns subscription offering provides a glance into a hacker’s preliminary approach to block attacks proactively.
