F5 WAF Named a Leader in Forrester Wave

Newest Forrester Research report positioned F5 WAF in the Leaders quadrant – another confirmation of F5 WAF quality, continuous investment and vision behind F5’s product development.

Nowadays we engage in most of our private and business communications using numerous applications and software solutions, which is why we should focus our attention on protecting them. 42% of businesses that have been targeted by cyber-attacks in the past year pointed to external sources, with the two most widely used attack methods aimed at web applications and various software vulnerabilities. Malicious users are constantly targeting applications, and WAF products are found to be essential for establishing effective multi-layer protection. Security professionals are constantly looking for WAF devices to help protect web applications from most sophisticated breaches, including zero-day attacks, and ensure the safety of applications of all shapes and formats.

F5 Application Security Manager (ASM) is a certified web application firewall (WAF) which provides comprehensive and proactive protection from general and targeted attacks over the network application layer. F5 ASM provides protection from sophisticated and complex threats while simultaneously improving application performance by offloading SSL and preventing malicious content from being cached. It protects applications and data from known and unknown threats in traditional, virtual, or cloud environments, while offering impact assessment of threats and peace-of-mind security. F5 Networks recently added an advanced version of the WAF product – Advanced WAF – to its portfolio, offering advanced protection against new threats such as:

  • Automated attacks and bots,
  • Bots that target browser-based and mobile clients,
  • Credential theft attacks,
  • Application-layer attacks that evade signature-based security solutions,
  • L7 DDoS attacks.
