The world’s largest businesses, service providers, government entities, and consumer brands rely on F5 to stay ahead of cloud, security, and mobility trends. The SafeNet range of identity and data protection solutions from Gemalto secures the front-end and back-end of F5 BIG-IP deployments with industry-leading solutions available on-premises or in the cloud. Specifically, the SafeNet Enterprise HSM, formerly Luna SA HSM, secures SSL keys for BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) and Access Policy Manager (APM). The SafeNet Authentication Service provides strong authentication protection for BIG-IP APM deployments, ensuring the integrity of encrypted network traffic and that only authenticated users gain access enterprise resources. And, F5 Networks integrates with SafeNet Enterprise HSM to provide users with a web firewall and gateway solution.

Integrated Application(s):

F5 BIG-IP Access Policy Manager

F5 BIG-IP: Web Firewall and Gateway and SafeNet Authentication

SafeNet Authentication Service and F5’s BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM) combine to provide secure access for authorized users to enterprise resources. BIG-IP APM is a flexible, high-performance access and security solution that consolidates remote, mobile, LAN, cloud, and web access within a single management interface and policy creation environment. SafeNet’s wide range of authentication methods and form factors integrates with APM to address threat vectors with unified, centrally managed policies. Additionally, SafeNet is the only authentication vendor that lets organizations manage all of their endpoints from one authentication back end, delivered in the cloud or on-premises.

While APM protects applications by centralizing access and controlling who may or may not access the network, cloud, web, and applications, SafeNet adds an additional layer of access security with pre-integrated two-factor authentication, overcoming the weaknesses of simple passwords.
