F5 is bringing API code testing and telemetry analysis to F5 Distributed Cloud Services – creating what is pitched as industry’s most comprehensive and AI-ready API security solution.
F5 has also announced it is making AI pervasive across its entire solution portfolio with intelligent capabilities that help customers protect against sophisticated AI-powered threats, while making it easier to secure and manage multicloud application environments.
“Companies already face daunting complexity and a rapidly changing threat landscape. The added pressure to secure and deliver AI services compounds this, putting many security and IT teams in an untenable position,” said François Locoh-Donou, President and CEO, F5.
“We are delivering new capabilities that ensure our customers are ready for AI, making it significantly easier for them to protect and power every app, every API, everywhere.”
In F5’s forthcoming 2024 State of Application Strategy report, 88% of enterprises report that they deploy apps and APIs across multiple locations – with no single cloud is perfect for every application.
This, says F5, has created ‘immense complexity’ in enterprise application environments.
The same research found that the percentage of organisations hosting their applications in six different environments doubled in the past year, to 38%.
At the same time, applications and the critical data that flows through them have become the preferred targets for increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks.
The report says complexity is not just slowing down operations but expanding the threat surface area and creating substantial risk for organisations.Click below to share this article
