F5 Distributed Cloud Platform
In February, F5, formerly known as F5 Networks, rolled out a new platform and service that combines its recent Volterra and Shape Security buys with its own technology to help partners and businesses handle application delivery and security.
The F5 Distributed Cloud Platform provides cloud-native, software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based application security and delivery services. Within the new platform, the company has launched the F5 Distributed Cloud Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) service, which combines F5’s Advanced Web Application Firewall, Volterra’s API security technology; AI-based bot defense from Shape Security; and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) security, the Seattle-based company told CRN.
The company called the F5 Distributed Cloud Platform, a “Swiss Army knife” that centrally manages services for partners and end customers.
