REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company today announced that F5 Networks has joined the Equinix Cloud Exchange™ to provide direct, scalable and reliable access to its F5 Silverline® cloud-based DDoS protection solution inside Equinix International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers across the Americas, Europe and Asia. By joining the Cloud Exchange, F5 enables enterprise customers in each of these markets to seamlessly access "scrubbed" data in a low-latency, secure and scalable environment.
DDoS attacks are increasing in scale and complexity, and are not expected to slow down any time soon. To prevent these attacks from reaching the enterprise network, organizations need a hybrid solution for cloud-based mitigation in addition to on-premises protection. In fact, in a recent report by F5, The State of Application Delivery, 81 percent of respondents cited plans to move toward hybrid cloud environments to leverage the flexibility and potential cost savings it offers. By working with Equinix, F5 ensures that its customers have the ability to create that hybrid defense solution in a secure and high-performance environment while also providing the ability to create a multi-cloud deployment model.
