Application Security

How do you protect your Web Apps, Web Sites and APIs?

Application Security & Delivery

We live in a time where Online Sales and Communication are crucial to business success. Have you considered what would happen if your Web Apps, Sites or APIs protected went down due to an app security issue?

Applications are essential to businesses, and we passionately believe they deserve as much security love and attention as the networks within which they reside, and the endpoints from which they are accessed. As such, our cloud app security portfolio includes dedicated solutions that protect code, cryptography keys, and application ’OWASP Top 10’ vulnerabilities.


You’re managing hundreds—even thousands—of applications, including emerging ones that are updated often. They’re delivered from hybrid environments, including on-premises data centers, private cloud, public cloud, and SaaS. As a result, you could be relying on application delivery methods that work in opposition.
Deliver your business-critical apps in a reliable, secure, and optimized way. That means faster applications and an improved user experience—whether on premises or in multi-cloud environments.



Get sophisticated, enterprise-class load balancing that includes granular layer 7 control, SSL offloading and acceleration, and on-demand scaling.


Improve and optimize performance and availability of global apps by sending users to the closest or best-performing physical, virtual, or cloud environment; for faster, safer applications.


Accelerate application response time, minimize latency and delays, and reduce the number of data round trips necessary to complete a web request. Everyone expects fast, secure, uninterrupted access to applications, wherever they are. As a leader in application services, F5 ensures apps are always available, 24/7 , whether on-premises or in the cloud.

Web app and API solutions

F5 WAF can protect against application exploits, deter unwanted bots and other automation, and reduce costs in the cloud.

Enable App-to-App Authorization

As businesses build and release more apps, the number of APIs—which enable apps to communicate automatically with one another—has risen exponentially. In this fast-paced environment, DevOps teams need to rapidly create and manage application services without worrying about cross-app vulnerabilities. The challenge with more and more APIs is that they become additional targets for threats. To mitigate threats at the API level, it is essential to have secure authorization between apps based on standardized and open methods across web, mobile and desktop environments.

Manage your relationship with bots

Dealing with bots is part and parcel to conducting business online. Some are benign or can even be helpful, as is the case with digital assistants. But like any useful tool, bots can be co-opted by attackers to enable criminal activity. The threats are constantly evolving, driven by a growing list of motivations, including direct consumer fraud, IP theft, long-tail profiteering, political ends, or petty personal grudges—and bots are doing the dirty work.

Defeat credential stuffing

Billions of user credentials have been stolen from various services over the past decade. These usernames, email addresses, and passwords are fed through automated systems to take over accounts all over the net. And even if you haven’t been breached, your customers are still at risk if they used the same account information elsewhere. Proactive systems like F5 Advanced WAF not only defend against these attempts, they actually help prevent such credentials from being captured and stolen in the first place.


Digital innovation has changed everything: money is everywhere, so every business is a potential target for fraud. To effectively combat the perils of fraud, you need the ability to identify and thwart a wide range of creative, complex, and stealthy tools and tactics that criminals use to evaluate and exploit vulnerable apps and processes. The F5 Web Fraud Protection solution provides a combination of app protection, network security, access controls, threat intelligence, and endpoint inspection to give you the tools you need to shut down fraudulent activity—before it can take a toll on your business.



Protecting your apps against existing and emerging OWASP Top 10 threats requires a defense-in-depth app protection strategy. F5 provides comprehensive protection solutions that are integrated and work together—incorporating machine learning and backed by threat intelligence– to stop even the most advanced threats in their tracks.


More than half of data breaches involve weak, default, or stolen passwords. Why? To put it simply, password fatigue leading to weak and reused passwords. The F5 application access solution provides secure anytime, anywhere access through integrated, standards-based identity federation, single sign-on (SSO), and adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA).

Application Delivery

App security and traffic has never been easier to control. Keep your app safe with help from F5’s BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager and iRules. Follow users across your network and immediately locate and neutralise security risks. We can see the traffic that is both entering and exiting your network to give maximum control, cloud app security and peace of mind.
