CX is a human-first approach to technology

Assuming customer experience correlates only to uptime is a faux pas. CX is impacted by perception, which stems from the overall interaction, not just whether or not the power is on.

These new Quarterly Security Notifications will align the public communication of vulnerabilities and security exposures across all F5 products to one pre-announced date each quarter so customers can plan for possible maintenance activities to ensure they are protected.

Stay Alert for Holiday Formjacking

Formjacking attacks can be overlooked, in part because of threats like ransomware tend to generate more headlines.
