F5 Networks Advanced Web Application Firewall (WAF)

An evolving risk landscape demands active protection.

The digital transformation creates new types of risks at an accelerated pace for organisations. F5's Advanced Web Application Firewall (WAF) helps organizations to address and manage these evolving risks and challenges.

"Web attacks are the leading cause of data breaches"

Why the F5 Networks Web Application Firewall (WAF)?

For many organizations apps are their business. Unfortunately, applications are also the initial target in 53 percent of breaches, making web attacks the leading cause of data breaches. Despite the best efforts of secure application- and patch-management processes, half of all applications remain vulnerable 24x7.

Web Application Firewalls (WAF) protect your applications from data breaches by fixing vulnerabilities and stopping attacks. F5's Advanced
Web Application Firewal provides application-layer encryption, API inspection, malicious bot protection, and even behavior analytics to help defend against application attacks.

Without having to update the apps themselves, F5 Advanced WAF protects against the most prevalent attacks on your apps:

  • Automated attacks and bots that can overwhelm application resources
  • Attacks that steal application credentials or take advantage of compromised accounts
  • Application-layer attacks that evade signature- and reputation-based security solutions
  • New attack surfaces and threats due to the rapid adoption of APIs
  • Bots that target browser-based and mobile clients

Unique capabilities setting F5's WAF apart

F5 Advanced WAF identifies and blocks attacks that many other WAF solutions don’t, due to missing defend mechanism capabilities. From L7 DDoS detection that uses machine learning and behavioral analytics, to application-layer encryption to protect against credential and data theft. This is why F5's Advanced Web Application Firewalls include features that are unique in the WAF market.

Unique F5 Advanced Web Application Firewall Features

Advanced Application Protection

An incremental increase in application security. It’s a fundamental transformation that combines machine learning, threat intelligence, and deep application expertise.

Proactive bot defense

Identifies malicious bots bypassing standard detection methods and mitigates threats before doing damage. Protects apps from automated attacks by bots and other automated attack tools, helping prevent layer 7 DoS attacks, web scraping, brute force attacks, and more.

Anti-Bot Mobile SDK

When combined with F5 WAF solutions, secures and protects mobile applications from bots and automated attacks via application whitelisting, behavioral analysis, secure cookie validation, and advanced app hardening.

Credential Protection

DataSafe encryption protects sensitive information from interception by obfuscating fields and encrypting sensitive data. DataSafe encrypts data at the application layer to protect against data-extracting malware and keyloggers, rendering stolen data useless.

Behavioral analytics

Behavioral analytics and machine learning provide highly accurate L7 DDoS detection and mitigation.

API Protocol Security

Deploys tools that secure REST/JSON, XML, and GWT APIs.
