With F5’s portfolio of visibility solutions, customers can collect and analyze application metrics no matter where the application or app services are deployed. They can connect to applications wherever they live, scale analytics natively, and close unknown gaps in application visibility to expand and strengthen security and reliability.
Recently, I was reminded of the importance of calibrating measurements when I re-entered the realm of reef keeping. Like rapid changes in the application landscape, reef keeping has dramatically changed in the past five years.
Well, it is now World Password Day 2020, and not surprisingly passwords are still not dead. Since we will continue to live with passwords for the foreseeable future, here are some unorthodox tips on how to further protect your digital accounts from Account Takeover fraud.
Mika Yamamoto, Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer, previews F5's virtual Agility conference, the industry-leading event for architects, engineers, and developers to learn how building, managing, and securing applications in multi-cloud environments can accelerate digital transformation and deliver better customer experiences.
With the impacts of COVID-19, organizations need to ensure that their now home-based and remote employees are able to securely and seamlessly access the applications they need to be productive—especially with all the new challenges they’re facing every day. F5 BIG-IP APM and Azure Active Directory simplify the user experience for application access by enabling users to log in once and access all applications they have the right to access in any location.
This new partnership area is significant as it casts a global spotlight on the shared values of both F5 and IBM to enable Service Providers with broader choices of modern architectures and infrastructures—with both hardware and software options to enable open source hybrid cloud containers and innovate toward rapid network transformation.
Amid this pandemic, the systems processing unemployment claims in many U.S. states found themselves in peril. Developed using COBOL, the systems faced overwhelming demand, prompting urgent calls for those proficient in a programming language dating back to 1959. In parallel, many applications driving contemporary digital transformation efforts are microservices-based. These apps, like their COBOL forebears, are likely to be so critical that they, too, may still be running in 50 or 60 years.
Culture is not something that can be switched on in response to a crisis. Digital transformation, first and foremost, is a response to a business need. So, the initiatives that support it need to be designed with business outcomes in mind. And those business outcomes are informed by organizational culture.
The expansion of applications tied to organizations’ digital transformation efforts also increases the number of attack surfaces for bad actors to target, with the effects of the current pandemic further accelerating this growth. Coupled with users’ tendency to reuse passwords, you’ve got an unfortunately prime environment for credential stuffing attacks. This article highlights established best practices that can help both businesses and consumers protect themselves.
In days gone by, the app services (the data path) delivering apps was straight and narrow. All apps basically traversed the same set of services over the same network.
