Speaking Session:

WhAAAt is F5 WAAPaaS?

2:30 pm – 3:15 pm PST

Gartner defined Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) as the evolution of the web application firewall market (WAF), expanding WAF capabilities to four core features: WAF, DDoS protection, BOT management and API protection. WAAP development started with cloud-delivered WAF services that were easier to deploy, and from the start bundled WAF with DDoS protection. F5 has been a major player in this space for more than a decade, enjoying varying positions in the Gartner Magic Quadrant, including the elusive "Top Right Quadrant". Recently the market has shifted towards 'aaS' - as a Service - solutions for many of these functions. We are no stranger to offering these functions in the formats our customers demand...on-prem, in-cloud, self-managed as a service and fully managed as a service. Join us as we walk through strategies to help fortify your organizational assets against emerging threats; reduce the number of point solutions and centralize security policy enforcement across distributed environments; deploy consistent policies across your entire estate of apps regardless of where they’re hosted and learn about many more benefits a WAAP solution can provide.
