Different by Design
Addressing the needs of evolving data centers with a security model optimized for integration with today’s network architecture, Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM) brings together security and deep application fluency to provide app-centric security at the network level. The unique design oriented around applications ensures the effectiveness of application deployment, simplifies access control policy assurance and protects servers and the data center infrastructure from the most aggressive DDoS attacks. AFM is the core of the F5 Application Delivery Firewall solution (ADF), which combines the network firewall with anti-DDoS, traffic management, application security, user access management, and DNS security. By integrating these core datacenter features, F5 application delivery firewall reduces management complexity and overhead and is ideal for protecting internet-facing data centers where ever they reside.
