    What is F5 BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM)?

    F5® BIG-IP® Access Policy Manager® (APM) is an access management proxy solution managing global access to the user's network, the cloud, applications, and application programming interfaces (APIs). Through a single management interface, BIG-IP APM consolidates remote, mobile, network, virtual, and web access. BIG-IP APM can also serve as a bridge between modern and classic authentication and authorization protocols and methods. For applications which are unable to support modern authentication and authorization protocols, like SAML and OAuth with OIDC, but which do support classic authentication methods, BIG-IP APM converts user credentials to the appropriate authentication standard supported by the application.

    Identity Aware Proxy is key to both a Zero Trust security architecture and to F5 BIG-IP APM. BIG-IP APM and F5 Access Guard deliver Identity Aware Proxy using a Zero Trust validation model on every application access request. Providing authenticated and authorized users secure access to specific applications, it leverages F5 best-in-class access proxy. BIG-IP APM centralizes user identity and authorization. Authorization is based on the principles of least privileged access.
