Location :The Nightingale

Why Attend?

Most organisations have a ‘traditional’ firewall protecting the network at layers 3 and 4, but not the application at layer 7. That's where a Web Application Firewall (WAF) comes in - and luckily F5 has a pretty good one. However even though it's a neat bit of kit, because a WAF is so specialised, many organisations make the mistake of not justifying the investment in one - or think that a WAF is too hard to configure or operate.

Join us to hear how F5's WAF can protect your organisation against more than just the OWASP Top 10, malicious bots, or credential attacks, and learn how we demystify the complexity of it's set-up and operation.

Following our WAF session will be an update on IoT, how IoT generated application traffic will increase opportunity and security challenges alike, and F5's support for more in our latest 13.1 software release.
