F5 Networks, Inc. Unveils New Hybrid Solution Capabilities

F5 Networks, Inc. unveiled new hybrid solution capabilities to offer enhanced security, optimization, and availability services from hosted and managed infrastructure. The offerings fall under the company's new Silverline banner, which marks F5's entrance into the cloud services delivery space. The launch of the Silverline platform in Asia Pacific is led by the introduction of the F5 Silverline DDoS Protection offering; the platform will support additional application delivery capabilities as-a-service in the future. Ongoing migration of applications to the cloud, increased user and resource mobility, and an ascension of sophisticated threats have led to the dissolution of the traditional enterprise perimeter. The F5 Silverline services delivery platform expands the company's F5 Synthesis architecture to enable application services within customers' deployment model of choice: on-premises and/or as-a-service. F5 has made significant investments as part of its concerted campaign to strengthen its security support capabilities, bolstering the new Silverline DDoS Protection service. This includes the establishment of globally distributed scrubbing centers, one of which is based in Singapore. Part of F5's global security operation center (SOC) infrastructure, the center analyzes incoming traffic, identifies threats, and removes malicious traffic, ultimately returning clean traffic to the destination website with little to no impact to the end user or the network. F5's open and programmable architecture enables network security administrators to extend custom rules to mitigate zero-day attacks, works seamlessly with F5's Application Delivery Controller (ADC) solutions to create the most complete DDoS protection solution. F5 provides tiered protection levels, based on customers' unique needs and potential attack profiles: Always On, the first line of defense; Always Available, a primary protection on demand; and Ready Defense, a secondary DDoS protection.
