Application services company, F5 Networks, and cyber-security vendor, FireEye, have inked a global partnership to deliver integrated security solutions.
The agreement enables the companies’ customers to benefit from security solutions that integrate application delivery infrastructure from F5 and advanced threat protection from FireEye Network Security.
In specific, the security solution combines application delivery infrastructure with advanced content security, including network segmentation and policy management, protocol conformance, DDoS mitigation, SSL inspection, advanced threat protection, intrusion prevention, threat intelligence, forensics, and analytics.
It also includes a unified approach to worldwide sales, deployment and support, giving customers an end-to-end solution.
FireEye Asia-Pacific chief technology officer, Bryce Boland, said the partnership between FireEye and F5 will feature the integration of key application delivery technologies with advanced threat management platforms as enterprise IT departments are challenged with supporting Cloud-based applications and mobile environments while maintaining network reliability, security, and speed.
“Our partnership with F5 addresses critical business issues for our customers across the Asia-Pacific region – matching IT growth and security to support the business. We are bringing together application delivery technology with advanced threat protection to help Asia-Pacific firms fend off today’s advanced threats,” he said.
F5 Networks senior vice-president, Manu Bonnassie, said pervasive trends like Cloud, mobility and the Internet of Things, together with the growing complexity of the threat landscape, demand a shift in security approaches in Asia-Pacific.
“The partnership between F5 and FireEye goes beyond technology integration to combine engagement and solution delivery to address the increasingly sophisticated security challenges of enterprises in Asia-Pacific,” Bonnassie added.
