F5 Networks, multi-cloud application security and delivery company, completed the acquisition of Volterra, the first universal edge-as-a-service platform. With the addition of Volterra’s technology, F5 is creating an edge platform built for enterprises and service providers that will be security-first and app-driven with unlimited scale.
The F5+Volterra Edge 2.0 platform
Volterra offers a distributed cloud platform to deploy, connect, secure, observe and operate apps and data globally across multiple clouds and the edge. Volterra will also stay in its current US-based Santa Clara headquarters.
François Locoh-Donou, F5 President and CEO, said,
“I am incredibly excited to welcome Volterra to the F5 family and get to work bringing Edge 2.0—a key part of our Adaptive Applications vision—to customers. Joining forces, we will deliver the enterprise-grade features, including world-class security and scale, that have been missing from the edge until now.”
The F5+Volterra Edge 2.0 platform will be designed to address challenges found with current edge solutions that are built on CDNs and have limited security features.
This platform delivers the full range of F5’s security products in a SaaS model. This new enterprise-focused edge is security-first and app-driven, with unlimited scale.
