Adaptive Applications

F5 helps organizations deliver and secure extraordinary digital experiences by enabling adaptive applications that grow, shrink, defend, and heal themselves just like living organisms.

What Are Adaptive Applications?

Organizations around the world agree that their primary objective—and the best way to grow their business—is to continuously refine how to best serve their customers and users. More and more, those relationships start and are nurtured digitally through applications.

Your customers expect a lot from your organization. Seamless, personalized experiences. Speedy, secure transactions. And applications that are always fast, reliable, and inspiring.

F5 helps you exceed those expectations through enabling applications that can adapt to the constantly changing conditions of their environment—leaving you free to focus on delivering extraordinary digital experiences that inspire customers, keep them safe, and increase loyalty.

The Value of Adaptive Applications

Everyone in your organization wants to deliver value to customers and partners.
  • Developers want to move fast using their cloud and DevOps tools of choice, innovate quickly, and get rapid feedback from their applications.
  • Infrastructure teams know that customers will not tolerate a poor experience, and that reliability, performance, and low latency are non-negotiable.
  • And security teams must seamlessly protect company and customer data at all costs.
What’s getting in the way?

What’s getting in the way of delivering those personalized experiences is a very complex landscape:

  • Hyper-speed development and the increased technical debt of tool sprawl
  • Ever-expanding threat surfaces and the costs of keeping your apps safe 
  • Troubleshooting complexity in hybrid environments when something goes wrong

F5 takes the guesswork out of delivering the inspiring and reliable digital experiences that customers and partners demand. By decreasing the time and effort required to deliver and secure apps, F5 empowers organizations to get their apps to market faster, protect their business from existing and emerging threats, adapt quickly to changing conditions, and harness the power of AI to make better business decisions.

The New World of Adaptive Applications

F5 will fundamentally change the way apps are delivered and secured—ultimately helping customers deliver compelling, differentiated digital experiences. See what EVP and GM Kara Sprague has to say about this new world of adaptive applications.
