Why App Infrastructure Protection Matters

When it’s too much trouble to break into the front door of an application, attackers target the infrastructure. One of these paths of least resistance is leveraging encryption to hide malicious payloads. Learn about the challenges of SSL/TLS encryption.

Overview

How F5 Can Help

F5 provides visibility into SSL/TLS traffic, helping you root out malware and attacks hiding within encrypted traffic, but also reducing management overhead of network-based security inspection tools like IPS, WAF, or malware sandboxing.

SSL/TLS Visibility

Gain SSL visibility

SSL/TLS enables businesses to securely communicate with customers and partners. But attackers use this as a way to hide attacks and malware from security devices. Inspection devices like next-gen firewalls, IDS/IPS, and malware sandboxes don’t see into encrypted SSL/TLS traffic or suffer degraded performance when decrypting. 

SSL ORCHESTRATOR

SSL Orchestrator

Maximize infrastructure efficiency and security with policy-based decryption, encryption, and traffic steering through multiple inspection devices.

DNS HIJACKING

Prevent DNS hijacking

DNS hijacking attacks threaten the availability of your apps. They can even compromise the confidentiality and integrity of the data if customers are tricked into using a bogus application. With BIG-IP DNS, you can determine the authenticity of query responses, preventing DNS hijacking as well as cache poisoning.

DNS DDOS ATTACKS

Block DNS DDoS attacks

A DNS flood disables or degrades an app's ability to respond to legitimate traffic. These attacks can be difficult to distinguish from normal traffic because it often comes from several locations, querying for real records on the domain. BIG-IP DNS can stop these attacks by scaling up to process more requests per second when necessary.

DNS TUNNELING

Detect DNS tunneling

Many firewalls and IPS solutions do not address the more modern threats to DNS infrastructure, like DNS tunneling. Managing DNS attack vectors like DNS tunneling requires inspection of the entire DNS query for deeper markers of either good or bad behavior without disrupting service performance.
