F5’s Vision on Digital Transformation

As a result of digital transformation, Applications have become central to how we live, work, and interact. As a result, the technologies used to deliver and to secure those apps have become essential to business growth. That’s why an application delivery and security strategy is now a crucial component of any successful business strategy and F5 should become a strategic partner of your Digital transformation.

Vincent Lavergne, VP of Solutions Engineering, EMEA


Imagining Solutions that Deliver Less Fraud, Less Friction, with Less Effort

Shape invented the field of credential stuffing protection, an attack where cybercriminals use stolen passwords from third-party data breaches to take over other online accounts. In 2018, the company was ranked by Deloitte as the #1 fastest-growing company by revenue in Silicon Valley, and it currently protects the largest banks, airlines, retailers, and federal agencies in the world. In addition to credential stuffing attacks, its fraud and abuse prevention platform defends against other advanced attacks that bypass security and fraud controls.

Silverline Client Case Study: Fednot

Silverline protects against a variety of attacks, including DDoS, OWASP Top 10, and malicious bots. Your apps stay available and your security team can focus on what they need to do. This session will outline how Silverline’s integrated portal has provided a national notary service provider with a single pane of glass to optimize managed and self-services, including proxy configuration, visibility into threat details, and attack analytics.

Management and Security of Modern Applications

In a period of transformation and acceleration of digital uses, companies are on the front line and accelerate their digital transformation. This is leading to an increase in the number of applications being built, in the speed and heterogeneity in their deployment, in operational continuity and not forgetting to secure access. Join this session to learn how to standardize these deployments and provide state-of-the-art security for all types of published applications and services.

Secure API Management - Across Any Data Center or Cloud

APIs are a building block of app development, but can make it tougher to manage and secure a decentralized architecture. By centralizing API management and gateway services, you can secure and scale across environments to deliver improved user experiences. F5 provides a comprehensive solution that includes API management, high-performance API gateways, and advanced security controls, which creates operational efficiencies. Regardless of your architecture, F5 has the right solution to deliver the speed and security as your applications require.

A Distributed Cloud Architecture for Edge 2.0

Delivering rich digital experiences to your clients requires a combination of multiple networks, clouds, CDNs, and edges that are manually stitched together. This creates a lot of operational complexity as each platform has a unique set of tools and services. Volterra’s solution helps our customers deploy, operate, interconnect and secure globally distributed apps across different cloud and edge platforms, with everything orchestrated from a centralized SaaS based operations and observability portal.
