BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM) virtual edition (VE)
Different by Design
Addressing the needs of evolving data centers with a security model optimized for integration with today’s network architecture, Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM) brings together security and deep application fluency to provide app-centric security at the network level. The unique design oriented around applications ensures the effectiveness of application deployment, simplifies access control policy assurance and protects servers and the data center infrastructure from the most aggressive DDoS attacks. AFM is the core of the F5 Application Delivery Firewall solution (ADF), which combines the network firewall with anti-DDoS, traffic management, application security, user access management, and DNS security. By integrating these core datacenter features, F5 application delivery firewall reduces management complexity and overhead and is ideal for protecting internet-facing data centers where ever they reside.
Consolidated Security Infrastructure
As the foundation for the integrated Application Delivery Firewall security platform, AFM combines with other BIG-IP solutions to enhance security capabilities and eliminate the need for single point products that support application delivery, application security, user access, DDoS protection in order to reduce TCO and increase operational efficiencies.
For intelligence that drives actions, AFM provides deep visibility into attacks and mitigation techniques, enabling more complete reporting and analysis. AFM also provides additional exposure through SNMP to leverage forensic and SIEM tools.
Strongest DoS Defense
With the flexibility of iRules, sophisticated filtering, over a hundred built-in threat vectors with many accelerated in hardware, AFM offers the best defense for identifying and mitigating sophisticated DoS attacks entering the network on a variety of protocols.
As the most scalable and high-performing network firewall with up to 7.5 million connections per second and more hardware-based vectors than any other vendor, AFM helps to ensure traffic flow even under the most intense attacks.
