The platform aims to deliver quick and easy programmability and a powerful software-defined hardware performance.

InvestBank has strengthened its cybersecurity and application performance to enhance and support customer requirements.

Working alongside F5 Networks security experts, the aim is to pre-empt complex customer demands and support compliance, including the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). InvestBank is using the cloud-ready F5 BIG-IP iSeries Application Delivery Controller (ADC) platform, which provides DevOps-like agility with the scale, security depth, and investment protection needed for both established and emerging apps.

The platform aims to deliver quick and easy programmability and a powerful software-defined hardware performance, as well as secure critical data. The benefits include simplified policy management, plus reducing TCO and infrastructure footprints by consolidating app and security services on to a unified, high-performance platform.

The project also features the F5 Silverline cloud-based services delivery platform to protect against application attacks ranging from threats such as DDoS attacks, Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Top 10 attacks, and malicious bots.

Kausar Mukeri, CISO and head of Information Security, InvestBank, said: InvestBank is committed to continually improving its ability to scale and innovate, as well as offering our customers the most user-friendly, secure services possible. The new technology we've introduced, will be critical to shaping and safeguarding our next phase of development

"We wanted F5 to be part of our solution from day one due to its performance in the Web Application Firewall (WAF) space. Our consolidated architecture in the region and globally now includes state-of-the-art tools delivering Layer 3 to Layer 7 DDoS mitigation for both volumetric and targeted attack vectors. It is already proving a game-changer and is helping to raise standards across the banking industry."
