‘Security and Sustainability in the Digital World with First Datacorp’ Roadshows for the Government Sector

First Datacorp held the Makati Roadshow of “Security and Sustainability in the Digital World with First Datacorp,” for the Government Sector last December 11, 2018.

FDC partnered with Microsoft and F5 Networks to talk about security in the cloud as a necessity in digital transformation. The discussion centered on Microsoft’s Windows Server and SQL Server 2008/R2 end of support planning, and safeguarding identity, data, applications, and F5’s Multi-Cloud Application Services that simplify application management by giving consistency across all cloud and on-prem environments. The multi-cloud services provide intelligent traffic management as well as advanced application security, acceleration, and optimization, keeping apps online during high query volumes and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.

F5 Networks SSL Orchestrator and Cisco Firepower NGFW: Better Together

Cisco has delivered one of the industry’s first fully-integrated, threat-focused next-generation firewalls (NGFW) with unified management. Cisco Firepower Next-Generation Firewall is a leading next-generation firewall and intrusion prevention system (IPS) built to block more threats and quickly mitigate those that breach defenses with hardware and software options that combine Cisco’s proven network firewall with the industry’s most effective next-gen IPS and advanced malware protection (AMP).

F5 SSL Orchestrator centralizes traffic decryption and re-encryption using its best-in-class hardware acceleration with modern cipher implementations and software orchestration, decrypting traffic, then distributing it to other devices in a security stack. This enables Cisco Firepower NGFW to focus on providing advanced threat detection and protection.

Cisco Firepower NGFW has onboard SSL decryption capabilities but organizations can choose to offload that work to F5 SSL Orchestrator so that all of the considerable horsepower of Cisco Firepower NGFW can be dedicated to protecting their network.

Together, F5 SSL Orchestrator and Cisco Firepower NGFW help optimize actionability, availability, and orchestration, increasing security posture and threat mitigation, future-proofing existing investments in security solutions, and delivering a superior user experience.
