  • Configuring BIG-IP ASM v11: Application Security Manager
    4 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Network Security

    Course Details


    The BIG-IP Application Security Manager course provides participants with the expertise needed to detect, mitigate, and prevent HTTP-based attacks on web applications. The four-day lab intensive course starts at the simplest level for quickly configuring and implementing an application security policy and progresses through more complex configurations. The course includes detailed analysis and hands-on exercises for protecting web applications from brute force, web scraping, layer 7 DDoS, and other current attack vectors.


    After course completion, participants will be able to differentiate between negative and positive security models, and configure the most appropriate protection for their own web applications
