New F5 CNFs at MPLS, SD & AI Net World Paris, 2022

5 April – 7 April



Strengthen, Secure, and Simplify Your Clouds

We are excited to announce F5’s new, industry-leading, cloud-native solutions during MPLS, SD & AI Net World Congress, Paris, 2022. We've refactored some of the F5 BIG-IP platform’s critical security functions like Edge Firewall and Policy Enforcer (part of our Advanced Firewall Manager) into agile CNFs. These are true cloud-native form factors which can be deployed in both traditional and modern networks and will be production-ready in 2022. You can also learn how our multi-cloud management solutions let you enjoy the resiliency and native features of multi-cloud—with less management overhead. F5 provides security-focused solutions with built-in automation and resource allocation, allowing you to spin up and spin down applications instantly and manage workloads with a single pane of glass.
