F5 Networks Herculon SSL Orchestrator
F5 Networks in January launched a portfolio of security offerings for partners to complement its application delivery products. The Herculon SSL Orchestrator provides dynamic service chaining and context-based policy management of the traffic flows between network security devices. In doing that, companies can gain visibility into encrypted traffic, better orchestrate traffic, improve performance and detect attacks, said Aldo Dossola, vice president of North American channel sales. Seattle-based F5's push to bolster its security portfolio is driven by the move away from perimeter security technology and a decentralization of application delivery with the cloud, Dossola said. These shifts are driving customers to leverage F5's offerings indirectly through their network operations teams, Dossola said.
