Mumbai: F5 has announced a new regional point of presence (PoP) in India for its Silverline managed security services.

This move is part of F5’s global expansion plan to deploy PoPs in geographic locations in APAC including Sydney – Australia, HongKong, and India to meet customer demands for Silverline offerings. F5 Silverline offerings are now available in India.

“With the launch of a local PoP in India, F5’s Silverline managed security services will not only be able to improve application performance but also bridge the gap of skilled security professionals addressing cyberthreats in real-time for our customers,” said Edgar Dais, MD – India and SAARC, F5.

“In a country with an approximate population of 1.34 billion, we will need 1 million cybersecurity professionals in 2020 to meet the demands of the growing economy,” Dias commented on the Indian market demands.

“For many organizations, there is significant conflict internally between teams that need to increase business velocity and implement adequate cyber protection,” reasoned Dias.

Phishing and web application attacks account for 57% of all cyberattacks in India. As the risk landscape continues to expand and evolve, enterprises are often faced with challenges of legacy infrastructure and lack the appropriate skill sets to manage and mitigate different types of threats.

With Silverline Web Application Firewall (WAF), Silverline DDoS Protection, and Silverline Threat Intelligence offerings in India, F5 will empower its regional customers with additional capabilities to protect applications and web properties without upfront investments in IT infrastructure and support.

“With a local Silverline PoP, we are excited to be able to provide our Indian customers advanced managed security services that protect their critical applications against cyberattacks cost-effectively and efficiently without latency issues,” said Gail Coury, VP & GM, Silverline – F5.

The announcement of Silverline Managed Services in India reiterates F5’s commitment to providing strong application deployment and management, without compromising on security or performance.

F5’s solution suite offers high-value cloud-based security services, including DDoS Protection, Web Application Firewall, IP Reputation Filtering, and forthcoming Shape Defense on Silverline to keep applications secure.
