Get Ahead of Web App Security by Migrating from BIG-IP ASM to F5 Advanced WAF

And just like application source code, F5 WAF policies can reside in a repository, enabling SecOps to own and maintain common security controls that can be integrated into the development pipeline just like any other piece of code. This approach helps DevOps and SecOps bridge operational gaps and bring apps to market faster with lower cost and higher security efficiency. Check out this Solution Guide to learn more about security automation for DevOps with F5 Advanced WAF.

Another option for BIG-IP ASM customers who may be looking to migrate is NGINX App Protect (NAP), which delivers F5 WAF technology on the NGINX platform. NGINX App Protect is simple, lightweight, and easy to operate, delivering proven security from Advanced WAF, as the Advanced WAF engine serves as the foundation of NGINX App Protect.

F5's Advanced WAF engine is also the foundation for F5's web application security services, including Silverline Managed WAF, which provides the robust app security controls of Advanced WAF as a fully managed service. By incorporating the Advanced WAF engine into Silverline, customers can easily apply current ASM security policies to Silverline Managed WAF.

The F5 Advanced WAF engine enables consistent WAF protection policies to be portable to any environment, including public/private clouds, on-premises, and even hybrid environments. The familiarity of the user interface, similar policies, and policy creation across F5 offerings leveraging the F5 Advanced WAF engine (F5 Advanced WAF, Silverline Managed WAF, and NGINX App Protect) provides customers a simple, unified, consistent experience across F5's WAF portfolio.

To learn more about migrating from BIG-IP ASM, please contact F5 or your applicable channel partner. In addition, attend the upcoming live webinar at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 15: Upgrade Your F5 Advanced WAF Protection and Stop Unwanted Bot Traffic.
