|F5 Access Policy Manager
BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM) is a flexible, high-performance access and security solution that provides unified global access to your business-critical applications and networks. By consolidating remote access, web access management, VDI, and other resources in a single policy control point—and providing easy-to-manage access policies—BIG-IP APM helps you free up valuable IT resources and scale cost-effectively.
BIG-IP APM is available as an add-on module for BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) physical and virtual editions and the VIPRION chassis platforms. It is also available as part of the BIG-IP Edge Gateway remote access product.
Keep users connected—remotely
BIG-IP APM protects your public-facing applications by providing policy-based, context-aware access to users while consolidating your access infrastructure. Working with the BIG-IP Edge Client, BIG-IP APM provides secure remote access to corporate resources—such as Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, and VDI—from all networks and devices. BIG-IP APM also ensures your business is ready for the future, as the first remote access solution to deliver full support for both IPv4 and IPv6.
Secure your network
Gain valuable insight into who’s on the network and which applications they’re using—while maintaining complete, policy-based control of their navigation. With BIG-IP APM, you can:
•Achieve dynamic access control through Layer 4 and Layer 7 dynamic access control lists (ACLs) created based on user identity, IP address, and group membership pulled from the directory.
•Remain in control—always—with strong endpoint inspection checks that contribute to access profiles.
Simplify infrastructure, reduce costs
BIG-IP APM easily integrates with your current authentication infrastructure. With AAA control directly on the BIG-IP system, you can apply repeatable access policies across many applications and servers while getting a centralized view of your authorization infrastructure. All of this enables you to consolidate management, eliminate redundant tiers, and reduce CapEx and OpEx.
Deliver performance, scalability, and virtual desktop support
Keep up with the pace of business. BIG-IP APM is fast, scalable, and flexible, providing:
