Whitepaper: Deploying an Enterprise Mobility Gateway

by F5Jun 06, 2016

More enterprises are granting greater access to corporate resources--wherever they may be located--for authorized users through an ever-increasing number of mobile devices. An Enterprise Mobility Gateway helps organizations scale, manage, secure, optimize and control today's required anytime, anywhere network, cloud, and application access.


Whitepaper: Beyond Advanced Threat Protection

by F5Jun 06, 2016

Advanced threat protection systems bring a new level of malware protection to the enterprise, overcoming the weaknesses of intrusion detection and prevention solutions by detecting zero-day malware. ATP devices might also introduce bandwidth constraints and intermittent availability, leading to network outages. Proper use of Application Delivery Controllers can mitigate these limits, ensuring traffic flow while using ATP devices.


Whitepaper: Key Considerations in Choosing a Web Application Firewall

by F5Jun 06, 2016

Organizations that deliver rich and complex Internet content to users without having adequate security incur significant risk and are exposed to a variety of potentially malicious attacks from rapidly changing IP addresses. By deploying a strong web application firewall, you can secure your critical web applications wherever they reside--within a virtual software-defined data center, managed cloud service environment, public cloud or traditional data center.

A powerful WAF solution enables organizations to protect against OWASP to 10 threats, application vulnerabilities, and zero-day attacks. With strong Layer 7 DDoS defenses, detection and mitigation techniques, virtual patching and granular attack visibility thwart even the most sophisticated threats before they reach your servers. This paper provides a breakdown of some of the key factors you should consider when selecting a WAF to protect your business.


Whitepaper: Key Considerations in Deploying an SSL Solution

by F5Jun 06, 2016

With privacy breaches becoming increasingly common, many organizations look to SSL as a way to protect the integrity of their data online. However, the implementation of a comprehensive SSL strategy comes with its own challenges of visibility, performance and scale. Through proper planning and deployment, a strong SSL strategy mitigates the risk of breaches. Once the strategy is in place, the site will be positioned for future security, scalability, and reliability, putting the focus where it really matters--moving business forward.


Whitepaper: The Expectation of SSL Everywhere

by F5Mar 01, 2015

SSL is the set of cryptographic protocols that secure data in transit. Today SSL is often the only tool standing between your organization and the bad actors. The stakes around SSL have been upleveled to the limit. Whether or not it's convenient to admit, it's time for organizations to uplevel their overall security posture to protect this last line of defense. Read this white paper to learn how your organization can properly embrace a higher security posture to protect SSL.


Whitepaper: Case Study: Everbridge Manages Traffic and Security across Global Cloud Providers and Local Data Centers

by F5Mar 01, 2015

Everbridge, a provider of critical communications services, leverages the cloud to ensure its systems are always available and able to handle sudden traffic bursts. By using a unified F5 solution that includes virtual editions, Everbridge can better manage traffic and security within its own data centers, as well as multiple global cloud service providers. This also provides added scalability and decreases overhead costs. Read the case study to learn more.


Whitepaper: Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers

by F5Nov 05, 2014

F5 Networks is positioned in the Leaders Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers for the eighth consecutive year. The application delivery controller (ADC) is a key component within enterprise data center and public cloud architectures, and according to Gartner, enterprises should evaluate ADCs based on how they integrate with key applications and cloud/virtualization platforms.

Access this report now to see how Gartner evaluates vendors based on ability to execute and completeness of vision. You'll learn:

• Strengths and weaknesses of vendors
• Vendor placement on the MQ, with descriptions of leaders, challengers, visionaries and niche players
• Gartner's evaluation criteria for inclusion on the MQ


Whitepaper: Operationalizing the Network with SDN

by F5Nov 05, 2014

The focus of SDN is on transforming the network to support applications and meet the expectations of users and businesses that rely on them. Scaling modern networks is challenging due to the explosive growth of compute, network, and application resources-combined with increased mobility of apps migrating to the cloud and users across multiple devices. As an approach to operationalizing the network, SDN enables organizations to achieve greater economies of operational scale through the use of APIs to automate and orchestrate the network, as well as the application services that support applications. Read this whitepaper to learn how applications are driving new requirements for both businesses and networks that require disruptive, radical change.


Whitepaper: The Right Way to Protect Against DDoS Attacks

by F5Oct 31, 2014

CIOs want harmony. Security directors loathe point products. Network operations won't buy into anything new. CIOs can get the harmony they need around DDoS mitigation by extending the F5 Application Delivery Controller into a hybrid solution: on premises with a new cloud component. Read the white paper to learn more.


Whitepaper: Rethinking Software Defined Networks

by F5Oct 15, 2014

F5 and Cisco enable enterprises to build an SDN that reduces application delivery time, operational costs and risk of downtime by "operationalizing" the network. While Software-defined networks (SDNs) represent a step forward in networking technology, it's become clear that it's going to take some new thinking about how to implement SDNs if they are to support enterprise requirements and gain traction. Read this whitepaper to learn more about how SDNs can deliver the benefits at enterprise scale.
