F5 recently released BIG-IP 17.1, a long-term support release, which continues to extend, enhance, and simplify application security, delivery, and automation. Existing F5 BIG-IP customers can leverage their existing deployments to augment their already powerful defenses against sophisticated attacks by deploying the Distributed Cloud technologies either through the new native integration or as iApp services-based configurations.
The new F5 Distributed Cloud connectors for BIG-IP 17.1 enable customers to easily apply cloud-based security services to application interactions directly within the BIG-IP administrative console. These security services enable application owners and security personnel to leverage market-leading anti-fraud and malicious bot security, enhancing the protections for their applications and data from automated attacks. The following F5 Distributed Cloud connectors for BIG-IP enable easy, secure integration with F5 Distributed Cloud Services, and illustrate F5’s commitment to providing simplified and holistic application security for hybrid and multi-cloud environments:
For those with responsibility for an organization’s digital commerce, protecting these applications, users, and data is paramount to maximize business revenue and customer satisfaction, and to protect organizational reputation. The BIG-IP platform securely connects to F5 Distributed Cloud connectors to provide fast, reliable responses that serve as your core defense point against sophisticated web and mobile-based attacks. Utilizing this centralized app security empowers you to better leverage your existing internal expertise and SecOps teams with simple onboarding, ongoing deployment management, and centralized insights into sophisticated attacks that you were previously missing, allowing you to quickly adapt to the changing threat landscape.
