Complete protection for users, apps and data. The complete portfolio of F5 Networks Software-Defined Networking and solutions is designed to help you improve security, reduce vulnerabilities, and ensure ongoing performance of your critical business applications. Protect your applications — the door to your data and your business. Applications power businesses of all sizes, from startups to the Fortune 500. Your business is driven by them, your customers connect with you through them, and your employees can’t do their jobs without them. But, as critical as they are, applications also expose your business to threats. Applications and their data are a focal point for today’s attacks. Today, there are over 1 billion web apps. In 2020, that could easily be 5 billion. All those apps could be targets for attacks and securing applications is fraught with complexity. With the pervasiveness of Internet encryption (SSL/TLS ), mobile devices, and the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), risks are only increasing.
