Application Programming Interfaces, or APIs, are all the rage. While APIs are not new, recent phenomena such as accelerated digital transformation during COVID-19, enhanced software integrations, and efforts to replatform legacy apps for the cloud, has resulted in continuous API sprawl—impacting management, security, and even architectural choices organizations make in order to succeed in the modern digital economy.
Businesses are on a digital transformation journey and the quality of their digital services impact the digital experience of their consumers—be it human, software, or system. App delivery and security is critical to supporting these digital services and enabling companies to compete in a digital world.

With the launch of the new F5 Distributed Cloud Bot Defense Connector for AWS CloudFront CDN, you can easily add high efficacy bot defense with a few simple steps.
As we mark National STEM Day, Executive Vice President Kara Sprague honors F5’s 2022 STEM Education Grant partners—10 nonprofits working hard to encourage more women and girls around the globe pursue STEM careers.
Today’s xPU technology is the enabler for economies of scale because it exponentially improves performance and drives digital transformation through a specialized piece of hardware that contains specific acceleration functions in silicon that are meaningful to networking and applications. But to leverage the maximized computing and processing power of xPUs, organizations need to modernize their enterprise architecture around their applications.
Today’s conversations about the cybersecurity talent shortage are generating activity but limited results. Rarely does a week go by without the drumbeat of another article, study, or amplified social media thread bemoaning the crisis. The talent market should be signaling correction given the attention and investment it has received for years, but by most accounts it is not.
Organizations hold latent value—in the form of internal APIs—that they need to tap into in order to compete in an API economy. While security and technical challenges may deter some, businesses need to recognize that inverting their APIs will unlock the value of the enterprise as a platform.
Zero trust security is not achieved with the implementation of one specific technology product. It is a mindset that embraces a set of assumptions, which results in the use of distinct tools and technologies, such as bot protection and web and API security.
The whole technology industry shares interest in confidential computing and establishing standards due to its ability to protect sensitive data where cryptography falls short—in processing. Its design will be the enabler of securely leveraging the benefits of cloud and edge infrastructure.
Security Rule Zero is a core component of Zero Trust and leads to more efficient, safer services and APIs.
