F5 have introduced a Web Application Firewall that guards your critical apps.

BIG-IP Application Security Manager (ASM) enables organisations to protect against OWASP top 10 threats, application vulnerabilities, and zero-day attacks. Leading Layer 7 DDoS defences, detection and mitigation techniques, virtual patching, and granular attack visibility thwart even the most sophisticated threats before they reach your servers.

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

With BIG-IP ASM, organizations gain the flexibility they need to deploy Web Application Firewall (WAF) services close to apps to protect them wherever they reside—within a virtual software-defined data centre (SDDC), managed cloud service environment, public cloud, or traditional data centre.

Silverline Web Application Firewall (WAF) is built on BIG-IP ASM, but provided via F5’s Silverline cloud-based application services platform and wholly deployed, set up and managed by the highly specialised experts in our Security Operations Centre (SOC).

The benefits to organisations include more effective security out-of-the-box, rapid vulnerability patching, detailed application visibility and reporting, and industry-leading scale and performance. Meanwhile its features include Layer 7 attack protections, advanced enforcement, effective bot defence, application awareness, data protection and cloaking, and violation correlation and incident grouping.
