Protect your network against incoming threats, including massive and complex DDoS attacks with BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM).
BIG-IP AFM is a core component of F5’s application protection solutions, which combine four key security elements: firewall, DDoS mitigation, DNS security, and application Intrusion Protection Systems (IPS). These solutions can be consolidated onto a single BIG-IP platform, reducing management complexity and overhead, while offering superior performance and scalability.
BIG-IP AFM is a high-performance, full-proxy network security solution designed to protect networks and data centers against incoming threats that enter the network on the most widely deployed protocols. This product’s unique application-centric design enables greater effectiveness in guarding against targeted network infrastructure-level attacks. Additionally, with BIG-IP AFM, organizations receive protection from more than 100 attack signatures—more hardware-based signatures than any other leading firewall vendor—along with unsurpassed programmability, interoperability, and visibility into threat conditions.
BIG-IP appliances and VIPRION platforms deliver quick and easy programmability, multi-vendor service orchestration, software-defined hardware, and line-rate performance.
BIG-IP virtual editions have the same features as those that run on F5 purpose-built hardware—and you can deploy them on any leading hypervisor or select cloud providers.
