Web App and API Protection Solutions

Apps, APIs, and infrastructure keep your business running. Attackers are disrupting your digital experiences—F5 can help.

Why Web App and API Protection Matters

Attackers follow the money. In a digital economy, this means targeting web apps, APIs, and underlying infrastructure to exploit vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, and abuse business logic. Criminals compromise customer accounts, leading to large-scale fraud that can devastate your business.

Software exploits are weaponized daily, and motivated cybercriminals can bypass security controls and inconsistent policies to capitalize on inherent vulnerabilities in critical digital endpoints. Security must protect strategic business outcomes and effectively balance risk—securing your app architecture while delivering business agility and an exceptional customer experience.

Secure APIs and Third-Party Integrations

Safely embrace the new digital economy

APIs are the cornerstone of modern applications and allow organizations to quickly integrate new capabilities into their digital experiences. Attackers know it can be challenging to identify and protect these application interdependencies, given that there are upwards of 200 million APIs in use. In fact, more than nine out of 10 enterprises have experienced an API security incident.1 F5 solutions dynamically discover and automatically protect all digital touchpoints with robust and resilient API security.
