About Product

F5 BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM) is a high-performance, stateful, full-proxy network security solution designed to guard data centers against incoming threats that enter the network on the most widely deployed protocols. Built on F5’s industry-leading Application Delivery Controller (ADC), BIG-IP AFM gives enterprises and service providers the scalability, flexibility, performance, and control needed to mitigate the most aggressive, volumetric distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks before they reach the data center.

BIG-IP AFM’s unique application-centric design enables greater effectiveness in guarding against targeted network-level attacks. It tracks the state of network sessions, maintains deep application awareness, and uniquely mitigates attacks based on more granular details than traditional firewalls. With BIG-IP AFM, organizations receive protection from over 100 attack signatures—more hardware-based signatures than any other leading firewall vendor—and unsurpassed programmability, interoperability, and visibility into threat conditions.
