When you need to move fast, sometimes you make choices that help you in the short-term but can threaten your ability to quickly deliver new customer features in the future. You need the app security, performance, and visibility your business requires without slowing down development. We call that a Secure Cloud Architecture.
F5 can help design a Secure Cloud Architecture across all your diverse cloud environments to provide a consistent operational environment for the strategic control point to apps no matter where that app is running. We provide a consistent front door to every app, with enterprise-grade infrastructure and security services, as well as scale, reliability, security, and consistency.
F5 can help design a self-service catalog of application services that are available to any app, no matter where it sits. These can be readily consumed through CI/CD tools via declarative API’s. This removes the sluggish ticketing system, allowing you to move with the speed of developers. Instead of going around operations teams, the developers get an SLA as easy and agile as the Public Cloud app services, with robust enterprise control, enabling developers to spend more time focusing on building apps
