Telefónica Tech and F5 launch a new service to protect applications
July 2023 by Marc Jacob
Telefónica Tech and F5 extend their partnership with the launch of the new managed service ‘Web Application Defense’ (WAD), which is SaaS-based and deployed on the F5 Distributed Cloud Platform.
The new solution will enable Telefónica Tech’s enterprise customers to detect threats and vulnerabilities in real-time by combining massive telemetry collection with programmable rules, advanced AI and machine learning. Notably, it can protect enterprise applications from a single dashboard wherever they are deployed: on- premises, across multiple clouds or at the edge.
The WAD managed service is further bolstered by Telefónica’s Security Operations Center (SOC) team, which can support and monitor enterprise customers’ cloud environments 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This support includes triaging high-severity issues, investigating alerts and providing remediation recommendations.
The new service, available for organizations in Spain for a monthly fee, currently includes F5’s industry leading Web Application Firewall (WAF), Bot Defense, API Security and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation capabilities.
