Secure your apps, secure your data.

The threats against apps and data are unrelenting and evolving every day. They have to be identified and stopped without crippling application performance or compromising your company’s data.

BIG-IP Application Security Manager (ASM) enables you to defeat sophisticated, complex threats with 99.89% overall security effectiveness. At the same time, it improves app performance by offloading SSL and preventing malicious content from being cached.

Protect your business against diverse and dynamic threats.

ASM defends against a range of complex attacks

BIG-IP ASM stops these threats via a combination of leading layer 7 DDoS defenses, advanced detection and mitigation techniques, deep threat analysis, dynamic learning, virtual patching, and granular attack visibility.
 

And, BIG-IP ASM provides visibility into HTTP and WebSocket traffic to protect against attacks that blend in with normal web traffic, streaming data feeds, and chat sessions.
 

Regulatory compliance
isn't negotiable.

BIG-IP ASM enables compliance with key regulatory
standards like FFIEC, HIPAA, and PCI-DSS.

Secure code is a myth.

Immediately patch app vulnerabilities.

Web development is dynamic. With the focus on features and timelines, mistakes happen. For example, every developer knows never to use an inbound call for a database. But inbound database calls end up in app code all the time.

BIG-IP ASM integrates with third-party dynamic application security testing (DAST) tools to uncover and patch vulnerabilities and unauthorized web changes before code fixes are available.

Better together.

F5’s products, technologies, and solutions work together to make sure your applications are always protected and work the way they should. Extend the effectiveness of BIG-IP ASM by combining it with the following products.

BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM)

BIG-IP APM works with BIG-IP ASM to enable policy enforcement and control who accesses your apps.

Features

More effective security out-of-the-box>

Simplifies policy creation, so you can rapidly deploy a WAF for immediate security.

Data protection and cloaking>

Prevents loss of sensitive data (credit card information, Social Security numbers) by stripping out the data and masking the information.

Scale and performance even under attack>

Ensures app availability and performance even when under attack.

Layer 7 attack protections>

Detects and mitigates attacks including DoS/DDoS, brute force, SQL injection, cross-site scripting, remote file inclusion, cookie poisoning, and session hijacking.

Application awareness>

Associates usernames with application violations and provides in-depth blocking plus improved attack understanding and forensics.

Proactive bot defense>

Identifies malicious bots that bypass standard detection methods, and mitigates threats before they begin.

Device identification>

Tracks the unique device ID for every visitor across multiple IPs, sessions, and through evasive actions for increased precision in blocking bad actors.

Violation correlation and incident grouping>

Automatically correlates multiple attacks into a single incident for better visibility and easier management.
