Silverline launches in APAC with DDoS protection offering

Network security firm, F5 Networks, is throwing its hat into the Cloud security ring.

The firm has launched its new Silverline brand of Cloud-based network security offerings.

The regional launch of the brand is spearheaded by the introduction of a direct denial of service (DDoS) protection offering, F5 Silverline DDoS Protection.

The platform expands the company’s Synthesis architecture to enable application services within customers’ deployment model either on-premises and/or as-a-service.

F5 said its investment in hybrid services delivery and security intelligence licensing options mirror the industry’s rising interest in providing programmable application delivery capabilities across physical and virtual infrastructures to support software defined application services and other software-defined initiatives.

F5 senior vice-president of sales Asia Pacific, Emmanuel Bonnassie, said the firm’s goal is to reduce barriers to deploying and scaling application services.

“Our Silverline offerings will make core F5 technologies available as-a-service to help customers embrace hybrid deployments without forsaking the benefits they’ve seen in the datacentre.”

“F5 is the first application delivery networking company to offer a hybrid solution for DDoS protection. This type of hybrid solution, combining on-premises DDoS protection capabilities with a high-capacity cloud service, provides enterprises with robust capability to absorb and mitigate a complete spectrum of DDoS attacks.”

The F5 Silverline DDoS protection solution is available now through channel partners.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
