F5 Big-IP Application Security Manager (ASM) V12

The BIG-IP Application Security Manager course gives participants a functional understanding of how to deploy, tune, and operate BIG-IP Application Security Manager (ASM) to protect their web applications from HTTP-based attacks.

The course includes lecture, hands-on labs, and discussion about different ASM components for detecting and mitigating threats from multiple attack vectors such web scraping, Layer 7 Denial of Service, brute force, bots, code injection, and zero day.

The BIG-IP Application Security Manager course provides participants with the expertise needed to detect, mitigate, and prevent HTTP-based attacks on web applications. The four-day lab intensive course starts at the simplest level for quickly configuring and implementing an application security policy and progresses through more complex configurations. The course includes detailed analysis and hands-on exercises for protecting web applications from brute force, web scraping, layer 7 DDoS, and other current attack vectors.

After course completion, participants will be able to differentiate between negative and positive security models, and configure the most appropriate protection for their own web applications
