Increasing numbers of apps are moving to, or being built natively, in the cloud. These apps are often the main connection between you and your customers, so it’s important you secure and optimize their experience. F5 is uniquely positioned to take apps from the core code in the cloud all the way through to your customers—with a single solution set.
App security is vital for public cloud users. While Google ensures the security of its infrastructure, the onus is on application owners to secure the apps themselves, as well as the data within them. All F5 application services, including our industry-leading web application firewall, are available for use on Google Cloud Platform. By combining these services, you can leverage all the benefits of the public cloud with the same industry-leading security, availability, and performance capabilities available to data-center hosted applications.
F5 Container Ingress Services (CIS) works with BIG-IP Virtual Edition to provide north-south ingress control, robust security, and performance optimization for containerized apps in Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and GKE On-Prem. Integrating natively with the Kubernetes orchestrator, CIS monitors your container environment and automates app services insertion as required, allowing you to seamlessly migrate and scale your containers across a hybrid GKE architecture with consistent app services.
F5 application services are available in a variety of throughput and consumption models via our Good, Better, Best licensing options. To get started with one of these product bundles, contact an F5 sales representative about a trial or perpetual VE licenses.
