Improve security and the user experience when managing access to your portfolio of corporate applications.
As businesses adapt to a new normal and increase remote work, scaling and securing remote access is more important than ever. The F5 identity aware proxy can help you deploy zero-trust application access and implement other best practices.
While there’s not one magical solution for a zero trust security model, F5 provides the foundation—a central piece of the puzzle that integrates with an ecosystem of partners to ensure only the right people have access to the right applications or information at the right time.
Users now operate outside of offices, in various locations with various devices, connecting to corporate applications that reside on-premises and in various cloud environments. So you need zero trust security to simplify access management and ease the friction of application access for users.
An F5 identity-aware proxy plays a central role in your zero trust architecture. It focuses on identity and access at the application layer rather than the network layer, and it centralizes authentication and authorization controls.
The solution reduces complexity with single sign-on (SSO), ensures user device security before allowing access, and grants access based on context from a multitude of attributes like time, user location, and application risk level to provide a seamless but secure user experience.
The F5 solution integrates with Identity as a Service (IDaaS) partners such as Microsoft Azure AD, Okta, and Ping Identity to connect on-premises or data center applications.
