F5 Delivers BIG-IP ASM

SEATTLE -- F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, today announced a new version of its BIG-IPR Application Security ManagerT (ASM) solution. BIG-IP ASM delivers a new level of integration by further leveraging the plug-in architecture of TMOST, the modular architecture platform for F5's application delivery solutions. With this integration-along with manageability and feature improvements-F5 has delivered the industry's foremost comprehensive application delivery security solution for enterprises and other organizations.

The new BIG-IP ASM delivers unprecedented security capabilities, enabling both network and security architects to manage the multiple layers of their application security environments comprehensively and transparently. In addition, BIG-IP ASM's robust capabilities and ease-of-use make it an ideal security solution for architects seeking to safely introduce new technologies into their application delivery infrastructures, including solutions that ensure regulatory requirements for financial, e-commerce, health care, and retail industries.

"While most organizations are incorporating security into the software development lifecycle for new applications, there are still many legacy applications that organizations must protect for regulatory and compliance reasons," said Diana Kelley, Vice President and Senior Analyst for Burton Group. "Application firewalls can help organizations provide compensating control protections for legacy and commercial applications."
