About the F5 Essential App Protect Service¶
Essential App Protect provides instant, out-of-the-gate protection from common web exploits, malicious IPs and coordinated attack types. The solution takes the complexity out of securing your applications with a simple, cloud-native SaaS solution that is built and optimized for two types of users:
- DevOps and application developers without a deep background in application security and require fast adoption and deployment
- Cloud architects who are defining enterprise standards in mid-large organizations
Essential App Protect allows users to create a fast, efficient, and optimized security policy addressing known OWASP top 10 vulnerabilities, and it is accessible through both a modern UI and open APIs that can connect to existing CI/CD pipelines.
