Government agencies face a variety of choices when deploying and managing their applications. The movement to meet government Cloud First Mandates coupled with increasing application threats to enterprise security are driving new complexities. These require thought around Authentication, Identity Management, Security and Agility of Application deployments, and how these should be tied to applications, wherever they sit in a multi-cloud and hybrid environment. New application development models require new policies for government stakeholders to deploy enterprise wide applications securely and rapidly in any environment.

Attend F5 Federal’s Symposium to learn both about the risks of operating ‘as is’ and how to protect your agency leveraging F5 infrastructure. Agenda will include thought leadership on why you need to develop an Enterprise Application Policy, as well as practical F5 certification training, which will address the latest security risks as you bring development, operations, and security groups under one vision to reduce complexity and increase speed.

Keynote Presentation: Hear from Kara Sprague, General Manager at F5 Networks, on Application Capital and the need for Enterprise Application Policy. Why only managing your "most important" applications can lead to disaster.

The 2019 F5 Government Technology Symposium provides attendees with practical training on implementing next generation security trust and availability models to suit your application needs, regardless of where or how you deploy your applications. The Symposium will focus on a range of emerging security models - from Advanced Authentication for your mission critical applications, to locking down and monitoring privileged user access for key systems and IoT devices, and finally using the intelligence of the crowd to harden web facing applications from multi-faceted attacks.

The Symposium will also offer 2 specific certification tracks for F5 customers looking to become an F5 certified administrator, culminating in free on-site certification testing on Thursday, March 21, 2019! There will be a separate track for F5 partners and any government employees interested in a deeper dive into some of the more common use cases that our customers are demanding of technology professionals.
