F5 Networks and Carahsoft held a hands-on lab about F5's Advanced Web Application Firewall (WAF), a new category of app protection that introduces unique capabilities to the WAF market. Web application attacks are the #1 source of data breaches. A WAF provides critical security controls to protect web apps. However, not all WAF solutions are made equally. While many can help an organization protect their apps from common and known threats, most are inadequate against the myriad of attacks across the evolving risk landscape.
Attendees learned how F5's Advanced WAF can:
Provide strong, adaptable security for every app, whether on-premises or in the cloud
Defend web and mobile apps against malicious bots and exploits
Prevent account takeover and stop large scale credential theft and abuse
Protect apps from layer 7 denial of service attacks
