Winner: F5 Networks for BIG-IP Application Security Manager (ASM)
BIG-IP ASM combines industry-leading security capabilities with performance levels many other solutions cannot match. By integrating security features with application acceleration technologies, such as RAM cache, compression, SSL offload, TCP optimization and other performance advantages, ASM delivers security without sacrificing speed. Additionally, ASM is easy to deploy. To save IT professionals time and to simplify management, ASM provides specific, built-in validated application policies, as well as an automatic policy-building engine that can quickly adapt to application updates, helping security and application teams quickly evolve with business needs. ASM also provides Multi-Layer Security, an integrated L2/L7 approach to providing security. Multi-Layer Security not only provides web application firewall security, but also AnyApp security, where the application is protocol-agnostic. And because ASM offers integrated functionality with BIG-IP Application Delivery Controllers, maintenance and costs associated with security are kept to a minimum, and without sacrificing performance.
