Together for stronger security


The value of adaptive applications

Everyone in your organization wants to deliver value to clients and partners.


  • Developers want to move fast using their cloud and DevOps tools of choice, innovate quickly and get rapid feedback from their applications.
  • Infrastructure teams know that customers will not tolerate a poor experience and that reliability, performance, and low latency are non-negotiable.
  • Security teams must seamlessly protect company and customer data at all costs.


What’s getting in the way?


What’s getting in the way of delivering those personalized experiences is a very complex landscape:


  • Hyper-speed development and the increased technical debt of tool sprawl
  • Ever-expanding threat surfaces and the costs of keeping your apps safe 
  • Troubleshooting complexity in hybrid environments when something goes wrong


Optiv and F5 take the guesswork out of delivering the inspiring and reliable digital experiences that customers and partners demand. By decreasing the time and effort required to deliver and secure apps, F5 empowers organizations to get applications to market faster, protect their business from existing and emerging threats, adapt quickly to changing conditions, and harness  AI’s power to make better business decisions.

Data breaches negatively affect a financial institution’s bottom line. But even worse and harder to recover from is the damage to its brand. It’s an arms race between bad actors and the threats in their arsenal and the financial institution’s defenses — and the balance is in constant flux. The prize the attackers are after is extremely valuable: customer’s personally identifiable information (PII).
