To meet the twin goals of minimizing risk and maximizing uptime, networking pros have historically prioritized control over speed and innovation. This can put them at odds with DevOps, which is typically focused on producing the next new thing and prioritizes the ability to react quickly and iterate constantly. Unfortunately, if DevOps and NetOps are not in harmony, security suffers. As a result, attackers have learned to probe dev networks and app deployment infrastructures to identify and target weak spots.
As apps move to container deployments, so too do the threats—and so do the applications and services that protect against those threats. F5 offers comprehensive container security solutions that deliver layer 7 visibility and enterprise-level security. F5 Advanced WAF and NGNIX App Protect work closely with leading open source solutions to defend against the full range of attacks, from outside the data center and from within.
