F5 Networks Virtual Boot Camp: Access Guard for Access Policy Manager

F5 Networks Access Guard is a new set of client software tools designed to help administrators validate the security posture of incoming web connections from remote clients. F5 Access Guard generates posture information asynchronously and allows for real time information to be inspected with per-request policy subroutines on BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM). The solution also transmits posture information to the chosen APM server endpoints using special HTTP headers. 

Having included posture checking capability from its inception, this new service improves upon APM by allowing for instantaneous and continuous checks. The Access Guard agent provides a PKI signed report of the posture assessment performed on the client in real-time, rather than the traditional way that plug-ins reported status. 

Join us for this hands-on boot camp where you will learn how to: 

  • Configure and deploy an Identity Aware Proxy (IAP) in a matter of minutes using the Guided Configuration 
  • Modify an existing IAP deployment to onboard new authentication methods, SSO methods, and applications
  • Initiate HTTP requests from a Per-Request Policy in order to send a request to an API to retrieve additional information, or to send information to update an external resource 

We look forward to having you join us, and as a token of our appreciation, each attendee who stays for the duration of the workshop will receive a $20 GrubHub gift card after the conclusion of the session!
