What is BIG-IQ

BIG-IQ allows you to take an application-centric approach to core IT, networking, services provisioning, and deployment with a unified tool for gaining visibility into and managing your F5 application delivery and security portfolio.

BIG-IQ significantly extends the operability and value of your F5 investment. From a single console, BIG-IQ offers users the ability to create, configure, deploy, analyze, troubleshoot, patch, and upgrade F5 security and application delivery services. BIG-IQ also supports holistic device management of F5 BIG-IP™ physical and virtual devices both locally and in the cloud.

From per-app virtual editions to traditional hardware appliances, BIG-IQ makes it possible to gain visibility into apps and devices, leverage automated workflows, simplify configuration, and ensure every team—and every app—has the resources required to perform optimally.

With BIG-IQ you can quickly and easily manage, analyze, and troubleshoot every device, every application, and every policy from one centralized location—no matter the operating environment.
