Customers expect critical services to be available, fast, and secure. The best way to achieve this, is to create web applications with embedded Application Security, that can be accessed from anywhere at any time using Load Balancing.

Web Applications offer greater flexibility for companies, but if too many users try to access a service at the same time, the hardware behind it will struggle to meet demand.

This can happen in many ways, including an unexpected surge in popularity, or a malicious attempt to overload your platform. Ultimately, if too many connections are created at once legitimate customers are going to lose access.

Application Delivery from F5 can help to solve this problem.


F5 offer Application Delivery and Load Balancing solutions that work hard to balance demand on your services.  They identify and cancel malicious connections and give you a simple, optimised route from code to customer that provides an uninterrupted user experience.

F5 specialise in a huge range of Application Security Technologies including: 

Load Balancing

Improve performance and availability by sending users to their closest or fastest endpoint. F5 offer physical, virtual, or cloud services that deliver ‘global server load balancing’ (GSLB).

Web Application Firewalls (WAF)

Advanced WAF can identify and block attacks that other WAF solutions miss.  Protect your apps with behavioural analytics, proactive bot defence, and application-layer encryption of sensitive data.

DDOS Prevention
