Secure APIs and Third-Party Integrations

Ensure continuous protection for the fabric underlying your digital business.

APIs and Third-Party Integrations Drive Your Business

APIs are fundamental to the digital economy, serving as the bridge to modernize legacy apps, and the cornerstone of modern digital experiences. While APIs are subject to the same attacks that target web apps—namely exploits and abuse that lead to data breaches, account takeover, and downtime—API-based architectures introduce unforeseen risk from an ever-expanding ecosystem of third-party integrations.

F5 solutions secure APIs across a complex hybrid and multi-cloud digital fabric—reducing risk and complexity while improving operational efficiencies.  

Distributed Security

F5 runs everywhere your APIs live—in the data center, across clouds, at the edge, behind your mobile apps, and within your third-party integrations.

Continuous Protection

F5 solutions provide universal visibility, actionable insights, and highly-trained machine learning that continuously discovers and automatically defends critical business logic behind APIs.

Consistent Enforcement

F5 security employs a positive security model based on API schema learning, automated risk scoring, and ML-based protections.

Confident Innovation

F5 aligns API security to digital strategy and streamlines operations to accelerate app modernization from development to deployment and maintenance.
