Apps are the gateway to your data.

Protecting your data starts by thinking app security first.

Today, apps are your business. With this app-centric environment come new risks—86 percent of data breaches now occur at the app level. Protecting your data, and your business, requires integrated security solutions to defend critical areas of risk.

Understanding the Threat Landscape

Data is the currency among cybercriminals.

The data that drives your business includes strategies, finances, and your customers' most sensitive information. So, it’s crucial to ensure only the right people get access to the right data while also keeping the app protected.

Over 70 percent of today’s Internet traffic is encrypted and analysts predict it will continue to rise. This growth is creating a dangerous blind spot because many traditional, network-focused security appliances can’t effectively decrypt traffic. And hackers readily exploit this blind spot to hide malware and other threats.

By fortifying security strategies with solutions and services focused specifically on the application, you can better secure access to applications and protect the ones that expose sensitive data, no matter where they live.

Our solutions can secure any infrastructure, from traditional data centers to cloud environments. This helps make sure users can securely access data on any device, in any environment, at any time.

F5 secures applications and the data behind them—because that’s where today’s attacks happen.

Manage risk everywhere, including the cloud.

Traditional network-based security solutions focus on network protection and are blind to application context.

Our ability to eliminate blind spots provides necessary visibility and inspection for application traffic, so you can make decisions based on the potential risk to the application and take necessary action. Also, F5 security solutions are delivered where businesses need them—as standalone hardware, virtual appliances, and in the cloud.

Only with visibility into the weaknesses attackers are exploiting—within user identities and applications themselves—will enterprises like yours be able to protect their data.

The New Approach

As the perimeter dissolves, application protection, visibility, and application access become critical to protecting data.

Application Protection

Keep business applications up and running, despite attacks.

Ensure your business-critical applications are protected against a variety of network and application-level attacks. Drive business agility without compromising security—extend security controls and policies from the data center to the cloud with a range of security solutions.

SSL/TLS Visibility and Control

See what’s hidden in encrypted traffic.

Gain critical visibility into the traffic on your network that many traditional defenses are unable to examine, making your security stack more effective and simplifying management. Prevent data loss and ensure compliance with deeper intelligence and visibility into all data connection points (inbound and outbound traffic). Understand and mitigate attacks at every level, through layer 7.

Application Access

Enable mobile work styles without introducing risk.

Security policies follow authorized users wherever they are located. Enable employees to access their applications securely while helping ensure that malware and attacks can’t make their way across connections. Build a contextual, dynamic, risk-based approach to application access that improves end-user experience without compromising security.

More power via partnerships.
