Your apps are your business. Problem is, applications are the initial target in over 50 percent of breaches. F5 Advanced WAF protects against the latest wave of attacks using behavioral analytics, proactive bot defense, and application-layer encryption of sensitive data, such as credentials.

BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM)

BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM)

BIG-IP LTM monitors exactly how your application is performing for real users based on application response times, network conditions, and user context. F5 Analytics captures application-specific statistics, such as URL, throughput, and server latency reported at different levels of the service so that apps remain available at all times. If there’s a problem, BIG‐IP LTM can redirect the application locally or globally.

BIG-IP LTM also makes it simple to integrate with your existing tools using industry standards such as sFlow, SNMP, and syslog.
