TYSONS CORNER, VA, Aug. 26, 2016 — Randy Wood, vice president for federal sales at F5 Networks (Nasdaq: FFIV), has said federal information technology should prioritize application security to bolster the network’s cyber defenses, GovCon Wire reported Monday.
“The trend in application access is to trust no one, no connection, and no traffic flow; and relying on advanced encryption and identity management to establish trust,” Wood wrote.
He added some of the measures to secure applications are multifactor authentication, Secure Sockets Layer-based inspection tools and single sign-on functionalities.
