We are using this product for a major airline whose traffic is routed via F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall. All B2C sites are behind F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall. The data part is basically to Akamai for CDNs and to F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall for WAF capability. The resources are hosted on AWS or Azure. For parameters, we have another F5 AWAS module, which intercepts the traffic once it is inside the cloud parameters, and then the data goes to the backend application pool. Every B2C traffic gets inspected on F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall. Every HTTP profile is inspected on the Advanced WAF module, which is again F5 on-premises. We are also deploying this solution for another client in the Middle East. We're basically deploying the architecture. We have F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall and the Check Point firewall as the next-generation firewalls. All HTTP traffic is via F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall, and it is routed back to the Check Point firewall for IPS and malware inspection because F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall does not do that. Non-HTTP profiles go via the Check Point firewall.

Our primary use case of F5 is for a WAF. I used to use F5 to do some double load balancing. And now, for my current use case, we primarily use the F5 Silverline as an application firewall to protect our web servers.

We use the on-prem deployment model. Our primary use cases are for protection for web applications and customer web applications.
