Application Security Services for U.S. Federal Agencies

U.S. federal agencies are endlessly targeted by malicious attackers. They must protect their applications and data across all environments.

Defending Federal Agencies Against the Expanding Attack Surface

Federal agencies in the United States experienced more than 28,000 cyber incidents in 2019.1 Mitigating these attacks requires federally compliant, automated application security solutions that defend the expansive attack surface both at and beyond the perimeter. F5 solutions protect across environments, at the perimeter, and through privileged user access. 

Learn how F5 collaborates with NIST’s National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) on “Implementing A Zero Trust Architecture Project.”

Safeguard Agency Data

F5 has the most comprehensive set of application security solutions to protect agency data. A zero trust approach—combined with powerful visibility tools, 24/7 support, active threat research, and multi-cloud security—offer comprehensive protection. It’s why 15 executive departments of the U.S. Cabinet depend on F5.

F5 excels at maintaining stringent federal guidelines—including the U.S. Department of Defense SCCA standard—and feature industry-leading compliance with FIPS 140-2, the CSfC Program, and Common Criteria.
