Moving Towards Simpler Automation with Abstraction

Moving Towards Simpler Automation with Abstraction Using Ansible Roles and F5 Declarative APIS

Automation is valuable, but how to we stay focused on adding features rather than maintaining code and tools?

In this session, we will cover how to promote value focused automation using Ansible Roles and F5 Automation Toolchain including Application Services 3 (AS3), Declarative Onboarding (DO), and more. Leveraging a single Role or Task, we will demonstrate how to achieve lengthy use-cases such as deploying an application or GSLB configuration.

  • OWASP Top 10: A Real-World Retrospective Sep 30 2020 5:00 pm UTC 56 mins
    Peter Silva, Sr. Solutions Marketing Manager, F5 Networks | Byron McNaught, Sr. Technical Marketing Manager, F5 Networks
    Hindsight is 2020. That holds true for the OWASP Top 10, the threat awareness report that details the most critical security risks to web apps each year. Come learn the real-world impact of the OWASP Top 10, and why the guidance is relevant in maintaining a foundational security posture in an era of digital transformation.

    We’ll dive into real attacks that have recently exploited OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    - How the explosion of open source technology and cloud-based architectures has made the threat surface so challenging to protect against

    - Why the OWASP Top 10 still matters and how to use it effectively to stay ahead of the curve

    - What could change with the 2020 OWASP Top 10

  • F5 Labs Breach Trends: New Architectures, Old Attacks Sep 24 2020 5:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    Sander Vinberg Threat Research Evangelist, F5 | Byron McNaught Sr. Technical Marketing Manager, F5 | Ray Pompon, F5
    While gathering data for the 2019 Application Protection Report, F5 Labs focused on the theme of how trends in application architecture are driving risk. The results were hugely impactful—the attack techniques that bad actors employ have not only remained viable, but are still quite profitable.

    In our upcoming webinar, F5 Labs researchers are diving into what we learned from the 2019 report and what actions organizations need to take to stay protected.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    - What the growing correlation means between sector and breach modes

    - How and why attackers are targeting the retail sector using an injection technique known as formjacking

    - More about credential abuse and phishing and the causes of the growing number of API breaches

    - How to reap the benefits of the emerging architectures without increasing risk

  • F5 Labs 2019 TLS Telemetry Report: The Changing World of Encryption on the Web Recorded: Sep 17 2020 55 mins
    David Warburton, Sr. Threat Research EMEA, F5 | Katie Newbold, Intern, F5 | Byron McNaught, Sr. Technical Marketing, F5
    In F5 Labs latest 2019 TLS Telemetry Report they’ve expanded their scope to look at not only how organizations are using TLS protocols and ciphers, but also how they’re using certificates and supporting protocols.

    In this webinar, we’ll cover the results of F5 Labs global scanning and uncover how malware is increasingly using encrypted protocols to hide its activities. We’ll offer advice and best practices for configuring TLS and related protocols.

    We’re also proud to announce the release of our new HTTPS testing and reporting tool CRYPTONICE. We’ll give you a brief demo of the tool and show you how you can use it to test your own sites to make sure they’re deployed securely.

    Finally, we’ll show how F5 can help manage the complexity of encryption via a risk-based approach that adapts to privacy and security requirements.

    You’ll learn how:

    - The rapidly changing encryption landscape has improved privacy and security—but also increased the effectiveness of attackers.
    - The world’s most popular sites are using TLS.
    - Malware is increasingly using encryption.
    - Our new CRYPTONICE tool works.
  • 2020 State of Application Report – Trends Shaping the Application Landscape Recorded: Sep 10 2020 48 mins
    Lori MacVittie, Principal Technical Evangelist, F5 Networks | Cindy Borovick, Business Intelligence Director, F5 Networks
    Applications power our digital economy. Through what is broadly referred to as digital transformation, businesses across all industries are becoming app-centric with the goal of moving faster, boosting efficiency, and securely delivering amazing digital experiences to not only customers and employees alike.

    But without powerful application services behind the scenes, your apps are like cars without fuel.

    In this webinar, we’ll cover:

    - How to use your own digital transformation to gain actionable business insights that prevent loss, predict capacity, optimize resources, and increase revenue
    - How to gain greater visibility into your application portfolio
    - What effect the growing number of APIs is having on the application landscape
    - Who should be in charge of ensuring the availability, performance, and security of your applications
    - We recommend virtually gathering your entire team so you can listen and connect on this important topic.

  • Financial Aggregators: Friends, Foes, or Attack Surface? Recorded: Aug 11 2020 46 mins
    Dan Woods, VP Shape Intelligence Center, Shape Security now part of F5
    Third-party financial aggregators might make life easier for users, but they can be a new attack vector for those looking to defraud your institution and its customers.

    Each time a new list of leaked credentials goes into circulation, criminals use them for credential-stuffing attacks on aggregators, as well as other targets. Once working aggregator credentials have been identified, attackers move on to siphon funds out of their victims’ accounts.

    Furthermore, some aggregators explicitly aim to use their positions to disintermediate banks and other financial institutions from their customers.

    What steps can banks take to:

    Protect their infrastructure?
    Protect their customers?
    Enforce the API use agreements that they have entered with the aggregators?

  • The Castle Walls Have Fallen: Zero-Trust App Access Recorded: Aug 4 2020 20 mins
    Jay Kelley, Principal Product Marketing, F5
    Apps live anywhere today and can be accessed from everywhere, anytime. As the perimeter vanishes, the risk landscape increases and threats mount and become more sophisticated. “Trust, but verify” is replaced by “Never trust, always verify.” Apps are the front door to critical, sensitive data, so you must ensure that only the right users access the right apps at the right time with the right device and right configuration, from the right place. And they need to be able to do all of it simply. An identity-aware proxy drives Zero Trust app access.
