Web App & API Protection

How well you protect web applications and APIs can determine whether you’re a proven, reputable online presence or an unreliable, untrusted one. F5 provides app protection in any architecture that stands up to a range of ever-evolving attack types. Web application firewall (WAF) solutions can protect against application exploits, deter unwanted bots and other automation, and reduce costs in the cloud.

SECURE YOUR APIS   

SECURE YOUR APIS


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.



MITIGATE BOT ATTACKS


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.




PROTECT USER CREDENTIALS


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.

 

 

PREVENT WEB FRAUD


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.

 

 

 

 

DEFEND AGAINST OWASP TOP 10 THREATS


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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PREVENT UNAUTHORIZED APP ACCESS


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).
