Defending every application in a multi-cloud world

F5 and Shape Security offer comprehensive, multi-cloud application security that slashes fraud and abuse, prevents reputational damage, and eliminates disruptions to critical applications.


Why did F5 acquire Shape?

Shape invented the field of credential stuffing protection, an attack where cybercriminals use stolen passwords from third-party data breaches to take over other online accounts. In 2018, the company was ranked by Deloitte as the #1 fastest-growing company by revenue in Silicon Valley, and it currently protects the largest banks, airlines, retailers, and federal agencies in the world. In addition to credential stuffing attacks, its fraud and abuse prevention platform defends against other advanced attacks that bypass security and fraud controls.

What makes F5 and Shape better together?

Together, F5 and Shape can help to ensure that the world’s applications operate effectively and securely, end-to-end.

  • Together, our combined solutions can save our customers billions of dollars currently lost to fraud and abuse, and prevent reputational damage and disruptions to critical online services
  • F5 + Shape delivers end-to-end application security using the industry’s most sophisticated AI/ML platform for application defense—one that already provides accurate and effective security outcomes at scale more than 1 billion times a day for some of the largest, most-attacked applications in the world.
