F5 Networks Securing Apps with F5 Solutions

This Security Workshop provides participants with an opportunity to experiment with many of the different components of F5’s security solutions in a hands-on lab environment using a real-world application delivery deployment scenario. The goal of the course is to put to practical use the extensive capabilities of the BIG-IP system to safeguard application delivery in today’s growing threat landscape, and to help the audience think differently about application security. The labs in this workshop are designed to demonstrate how you might deploy some of F5's solutions to protect applications at different layers of the OSI reference model. NOTE: This is an advanced workshop and is not designed to teach students how to configure these products in isolation. For practical experience learning how to configure each of these products, we recommend taking any of our Configuring courses first.
