Application Security Solutions

Apps enable the business to capture opportunities and customers, but attackers can disrupt strategic outcomes for financial gain. F5 can help.

Why Application Security Matters

Attackers target applications by exploiting vulnerabilities, abusing logic to gain access to sensitive data, and inflicting large-scale fraud that causes serious business disruption.

Commonly used security controls frustrate users, leading to transaction abandonment and lost revenue—yet they are easily bypassed by motivated cybercriminals.

Security must protect strategic business outcomes, including the customer experience.

How F5 Application Security Solutions Can Help

Protect your apps, APIs, and customers across data centers, clouds, and architectures with adaptive security that disrupts attacker ROI and provides long-standing effectiveness to prevent business compromise.

Deter motivated attackers that attempt to bypass security countermeasures, such as CAPTCHA, MFA, and anti-automation defenses, with resilient protection the world’s most valuable brands depend on.

Protect User Credentials

Guard against the most common tactic used by hackers—credential-based attacks

Over 1.5 billion user credentials were exposed in 2020. Users can be partners or employees but are more often customers who have value in their accounts and loyalty to your brand. If the perceived value is high enough, motivated hackers will enter the adaptation stage of credential-based attacks to bypass your anti-automation defenses, leading to manual, human-driven fraud.

Cyber criminals abuse login pages and API authentication to exploit people, process, and technology—disrupting commerce, customer experience, and your business.

Enable Frictionless Authentication

Businesses compete for loyalty online—get ahead with a new approach to authentication

Widely used authentication methods are effective at frustrating customers—but fail to protect the business from sophisticated fraud and abuse.

Attackers have a variety of tools to bypass authentication. Digital fingerprints can be purchased on the dark web. Real-time phishing proxies (RTPP) can intercept and replay MFA codes. CAPTCHA solvers make it easy for attackers to bypass challenges. It’s time to gain competitive advantage and customer loyalty with friction-free auth security.
