The joint Cisco and F5 solution offers customers the ability to deploy and deliver applications with the speed, reliability and security necessary to meet today’s business challenges. Integrating F5 Software Defined Application Services (SDAS) into the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI™) enables a powerful new network architecture that simplifies and automates L2-L7 application delivery for existing and next-generation data centers.
F5 and Cisco Sourcefire have jointly developed a next-generation deployment architecture that helps customers address the risks associated with common vulnerabilities by securing critical networks and applications while maintaining optimal performance. The integrated solution offers SSL visibility and intelligent traffic management while allowing the Cisco Sourcefire Next-Generation IPS to block malware and attempts to exploit system vulnerabilities. This remediation capability leverages the intelligence and programmability of BIG-IP to optimize the IPS infrastructure, enabling organizations to realize the full value of their Next-Generation IPS investment.
