Eliminate the hassles of multi-cloud app management with F5

Gone are the days when you could reasonably expect to keep track of and manually update policies individually across clouds without hits to security and performance. Instead, it’s time to implement a policy management strategy that fits your organization and your apps. F5 can help.

Digging Through Multi-Cloud Complexity

Choosing the right cloud for each application means two things:

  1. Your applications are highly performant in their environments.
  2. Your IT footprint is wide and a little complicated.

When it comes time to make a sweeping security policy update to your applications, your team will have to try and manually update every single application, hoping not to introduce any human error along the way. This is likely a very resource-intensive exercise, especially given the sheer number of security and performance policy updates that go out the door on a weekly basis.

To make things more difficult, as your application portfolio expands (a good thing), this policy update process is going to get more and more complex, heightening the chance of introducing human error and new vulnerabilities (a bad thing).

Here's What You Can Do

The key is to provide app development teams with a catalog of easy-to-use, consistent, and vetted security, compliance, and performance policies—built by the security and NetOps teams.

This way, app dev teams retain the freedom and flexibility to choose the right environment to host their applications, while security and networking teams can define and enforce a catalog of critical policies that are consistent across on-prem and cloud environments.
