F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV) makes apps go faster, smarter, and safer for the world’s largest businesses, service providers, governments, and consumer brands. F5 delivers cloud and security solutions that enable organizations to embrace the application infrastructure they choose without sacrificing speed and control.
F5 Networks has teamed up with ElevenPaths, Telefonica Cyber Security Unit, to offer a cloud-based WAF (Web Application Firewall) managed service, an advanced solution to protect your web service or business applications on the Internet, which ensures the availability of the service and prevents the appearance of security breaches and malware infections.
F5 Networks alliance with ElevenPaths includes the joint solution integration of F5’s WAF solution and ElevenPaths’ Persistent Vulnerability Assessment & Management service called Vamps, which allow the virtual patch of vulnerabilities. In this way, the vulnerabilities detected by our Vamps service are automatically mitigated with F5 BIG-IP ASM technology, which prevents attacks that use these vulnerabilities as an entry path. This automatic integration manages to reduce drastically the exposure time of the vulnerabilities, going from using days or weeks to solve a vulnerability to hours or minutes.
ElevenPaths is also a F5 Gold Unity Reseller Partner, which focuses on selling and integrating F5’s wide range of security products in addition to the most comprehensive and intuitive managed security services offered by Telefónica.f5.com
