BIG-IP Next WAF detects and addresses security violations to protect apps in any environment. The lightweight BIG-IP Next WAF on F5 VELOS protects APIs and web apps from attacks, whether targeted or bot-driven, including server-side request forgery (SSRF). It also helps you manage security as code—via declarative API—to ensure security is integrated early in the software development life cycle and facilitates the transition from testing and staging environments to production environments in a secure way.
BIG-IP Next LTM enables you to intelligently control network traffic, selecting the right server destination based on performance, security, and availability. A full-proxy architecture allows you to inspect, manage, and report on application traffic entering and exiting your network while F5 iRules gives you complete programmatic control over traffic flows.
