F5 Advanced Firewall Manager Valuable Features

Oluwatosin Omojola

I would have to say that F5 excels in all aspects of network protection. There are five modules and I have yet to use them all. I use the LTM that's Local Traffic Manager, then I've worked with APM or Access Policy Manager, and I've worked with AFM which is Advanced Firewall Manager. If I were a CPO of an organization, I would just get F5 in my infrastructure to perform all the network security activities. I could just do that if I have the budget rather than bringing in separate solutions like Barracuda from one vendor and then bringing one other solution from another vendor. This is a unified solution that is already integrated and optimizes performance. F5 will do load balancing, security, act as the firewall and F5 excels in executing all of them. How it gets deployed depends on the customer and on what particular features the customers want. From a deployment perspective, F5 is excellent in all of them. View full review »

The most valuable feature is that you can implement it in a positive or negative model. Most customers implement the protection with a negative model because implementing with a positive model is not simple. We need help from the development team. View full review »
