F5 Government Technology Symposium

About this event

Carahsoft's 4th Annual F5 Government Technology Symposium took place on June 16, 2016 and brought together government thought leaders and public sector experts to discuss how they can deliver applications securely to anyone, anywhere, while balancing the need to meet Federal mandates. The day focused on providing valuable insights around Cyber Security stratagems like SSLi (SSL Intercept) and securely delivering applications into a cloud infrastructure - any cloud infrastructure - public, private, or SAAS. Attendees heard from industry experts and Government Agency leaders on how they are working to keep ahead of the ever growing threats from rogue nation states, hacktivists, and bad actors on the internet.

    Risk Management and Strategic Planning in Security
    Federal agencies depend heavily on information systems andelectronic data to carry out their operations and to process, maintain, andreport essential information. While bringing numerous benefits, these systemscan be vulnerable to cyber threats and incidents, which have continued toincrease in recent years. Consequently, security considerations are essentialas the federal government invests over $80 billion in IT annually. Nick willdiscuss recent GAO reviews related to cybersecurity and IT acquisition anddevelopment, as well as steps agencies can take to bake security into systemdevelopment and risk management.

    Coffee Break/Networking

  • Breakout Session #1​ 10:00-10:45am
    Access Policy Manager (APM) 101 - Joe Grone, F5 Field Systems Engineer
    Introduction to F5 Authentication and Single Sign on solution, Access Policy Manager. Understand how APM secures and differentiates access to your applications, data, network, and the cloud based on user identity and context. Learn how to use BIG-IP APM to unify and enforce identity-based, context-aware, and policy-driven application access control—regardless of the location of the user or the application.
    SSL Visibility and Intercept - Ron Cochran, F5 Field Systems Engineer
    With federal mandates demanding SSL everywhere, there is a need to balance encrypting all of our traffic, while providing needed visibility for security solutions into what is traversing our network. This session will provide an introductory overview to F5’s SSL Intercept and Visibility Solution (SSLi). You will learn the basic concepts of SSL intercept, hear several use cases and architectures and discuss best practices when deploying an SSLi solution.
    F5 Hardening to Meet Federal Security Mandates - Michael Coleman, F5 Sr. Field Systems Engineer
    With F5 being deployed in most federal demilitarized zones (DMZs) it is important to understand how to lock down access and harden the Traffic Management Operating System (TMOS) to mitigate vulnerabilities, and meet your compliance requirements at the same time.
    F5 Virtualization and Government Cloud - Lyle Marsh, F5 Field Systems Engineer, Dung Lam, F5 Field Systems Engineer
    This session will focus on leveraging F5’s virtual edition and Big IQ management console too quickly and easily spin-up application services in private or public cloud environments. Virtual Editions offer on-demand deployment options for high-density and multi-tenant infrastructures, so you can make new applications available to users in minutes
