Protect Application Infrastructure

Apps are only as secure as the infrastructure they run on. As environments expand across clouds to the edge, and the network perimeter becomes a digital fabric, consistent and adaptive security is critical to prevent blind spots.

Multi-vector denial of service, encrypted malware, and cloud workload intrusions can result in outages, data breach, and overwhelmed security teams – probing at weaknesses in an inconsistently configured, multi-vendor defense.

F5 provides a strategic control point that enables the visibility and consistent policy enforcement necessary to mitigate sophisticated cyberattacks that target application infrastructure—whether apps are deployed in 3-tier web stacks, microservices, across clouds, or at the edge – and fitting natively into zero trust architectures.
