Save the date of 3rd of June and get ready for a day of inspiration and thought leadership as we will explore how to navigate change through automation and modernization.
The conference focus will be on protecting APIs web services and application programming interfaces, NGINX solutions for developing modern applications, F5’s vision and what you can expect from the company in the near future.
Network with fellow attendees and experts in chats, lounges and Q&As as you discuss how to apply these new learnings to your own company.
10:00 – 10:20: Opening of the conference. F5 Strategy and Vision – Jakub Šumpich, F5 Team Leader SEE
Why did F5 acquire NGINX, Shape and Volterra and what is F5’s vision? What are the trends that F5 observes in Eastern Europe compared to Western countries?
10:20 – 10:40: Volterra – platform for distributed cloud services – Jakub Pavlík, Director, Engineering
Do you want a solution that can use a single centralized web portal to deploy, protect, and operate applications without having to turn to different layers of infrastructure or different types of cloud environments? Volterra’s decision, part of the F5 family from January, will be presented by Jakub Pavlík, one of the co-founders of Volterra, which runs the Prague development team.
10:40 – 11:00: Choose the right Web Application Firewall for your applications – Luboš Klokner, F5 Senior Solutions Engineer
Many of you know F5 as a company offering traffic management and balancing solutions, ADC and WAF. Probably some of you are already using F5 solutions. In recent months, the F5 portfolio has expanded with new products and solutions that you will learn more about from this presentation.
11:00 – 11:20: Zero Trust – modern concept for access to applications – Jiří Doubek, F5 Solutions Engineer
The security perimeter as we know it no longer exists. Today, apps can be found almost anywhere: in an existing data center, in the cloud, or we can use them as a SaaS service (for example, Office 365). „Old” applications use Kerberos for authentication, and „new” OpenID Connect applications. During the presentation, you’ll see how to apply Zero Trust – Identity Aware Proxy (IAP) for different generations of applications, Single sign-on (SSO) technology, multifactor authentication MFA, and how OAuth/OpenID Connect authentication works.
11:20 – 11:40: The future of the BIG-IP platform – Martin Oravec, F5 Senior Solutions Engineer
Applications are changing, and along with them the big-IP product family. Martin Oravec will showcase the innovations and innovations of BIG-IP, the portfolio of physical and virtual machines, as well as containerized environments.
11:40 – 12:00: NGINX – solutions not only for DevOps – Luboš Klokner, F5 Senior Solutions Engineer
The most used web server and Ingress controller in the world, it fits on a floppy disk and provides services like Netflix. What is NGINX, what are the other elements of the NGINX ecosystem, and why use it outside the DevOps environment?
12:00 – 12:20: Comprehensive protection against DDoS attacks – Martin Oravec, F5 Senior Solutions Engineer
Botnets have unlimited capabilities in terms of the strength and type of attacks. Combined with the presence of a „DDoS attack as a service” for a few dollars, they pose a greater threat than ever before. In the presentation, Martin Oravec will present how F5 DDoS protection works, both at Layer 3/4 and Layer 7 level, how F5’s Silverline cloud service works, and what possible ways to deploy on-premise or cloud, including ict service providers.
12:20 – 12:40: Secure your API – Luboš Klokner, F5 Senior Solutions Engineer
Most applications are built around API (application programming interfaces). This allows for their faster implementation and a unified interface. Luboš Klokner will show how to manage and protect these interfaces, what Swagger and OpenAPI files are and how to use them.
12:40 – 13:00: F5 Shape Security – Protection against automated attacks – Jiří Doubek, F5 Solutions Engineer
More than half of traffic to internet-published apps and services is automated, and behind about 30% of automated traffic sit machines controlled by cybercriminals. The goal is web fraud, such as assigning accounts, using compromised credentials for authentication, retrieving web content, and more. Cybercriminals are constantly improving the methods of these attacks, which is why security is becoming more complex. In this session, Jiří Doubek will present the development of automated attacks and their prevention with SHAPE Security, a leader in protection against automated attacks, now part of the F5 family.
13:00 – 13:15: Quiz and closing of the conference – Announcement of the winners of the quiz and closing of the conference.
