"It's very encouraging to see these two industry titans come together to bring security defenses to the enterprise datacenter," said Andy Welsh, director of partner alliances at Accuvant. "Accuvant is a key channel partner for both F5 Networks and Websense—and today's development is a sign of great things to come. We are looking forward to seeing this partnership thrive and offering these solutions to our clients worldwide."
Today, the companies also announced the immediate availability of the first solution on their joint development roadmap. This solution optimizes the interoperability of the F5 ® BIG-IP ® platform and Websense® X10G™ and V-Series™ appliances. Leveraging a choice of F5 iApps ® technology to streamline configuration and deployment, the combined solution provides unified access and effective security against advanced threat stages, including data theft, with increased scalability and availability. F5 and Websense will continue to integrate their respective platforms through a series of interoperability releases.
