F5 on Thursday announced the launch of F5 Distributed Cloud Services App Infrastructure Protection (AIP), expanding its SaaS-based security portfolio. The new release is a cloud workload protection solution that will provide application observability and protection to cloud-native infrastructures.
AIP is built using technology acquired with Threat Stack and will be a part of the F5 Distributed Cloud Services portfolio, launched earlier this year.
AIP will complement F5’s API Security
F5 already has a service called API Security, which helps organizations discover and map APIs, block unwanted connections, and prevent data leakage. AIP goes one step further and provides telemetry collection and intrusion detection for cloud-native workloads.
