Powering and Protecting Applications

Whether it is apps that help connect businesses to their customers or apps that help employees do their jobs—we help deliver and secure extraordinary digital experiences.


Application Performance

No one likes poorly performing applications. Research shows that 61% of consumers will switch companies because of customer experience issues. F5 can help.

We all know poor performance impacts the customer experience. In fact, it only takes a few bad experiences for customers to leave. Keeping applications running fast and reliably is a minimum requirement for doing business in today’s digital world.

Application Performance
Infrastructure and Application-

Application and Infrastructure Availability

Easily manage load balancing, container traffic routing, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, and full failover in a disaster recovery situation. Keep your apps running 24/7.

What Availability matters? Your servers will not reboot after an update. Your cloud provider has an outage. A Kubernetes pod just went down. Any of these can shut down your business, day or night. The question is not when you will get back online again. It is how many customers you’ll have lost in the process.


Application Security Solutions

Apps enable the business to capture opportunities and customers, but attackers can disrupt strategic outcomes for financial gain. F5 can help.

Attackers target applications by exploiting vulnerabilities, abusing logic to gain access to sensitive data and inflicting large-scale fraud that causes serious business disruption. Security must protect strategic business outcomes. F5 can protect apps and APIs across architectures, clouds, and third-party integrations to reduce risk and speed digital transformation. Increase application development velocity to improve time to market and reduce friction. Protect critical assets with the highest real-world security efficacy.

DevOps Automation Powers Customer Innovation

Multi-Cloud Policy Management

It is hard to manage across clouds while boosting security and performance. Get a solution that fits your business. F5 can help.

Maintaining customer experience is key to win and retain customers. More than 85% of businesses build apps across clouds. But how do you make sure your multi-cloud architecture—and your business—are managed and protected? With F5, development teams, security and network operations can finally work together, leveraging a catalog of easy-to-use and vetted security, compliance and performance policies. Build across clouds with assurance.


Application Troubleshooting

Visualize and Troubleshoot Your Applications

Take advantage of F5’s unique position inline within your applications to act on up-to-the-minute insights, keeping everything running smoothly.

In the eyes of users, slow can be as bad as down. Reports are important, but actionable data is even more so. F5 can help you manage application analytics, letting you spot potential issues before they arise.
