StarLink and F5 to Showcase Secure App Solutions at Blackhat MEA 2023

StarLink, in collaboration with F5, will be participating in the upcoming Blackhat MEA 2023 event. The companies aim to demonstrate their collective expertise in providing secure and flexible solutions for enterprises in Saudi Arabia.

At the event, the focus will be on showcasing solutions that can secure, deliver, and optimize applications and APIs, regardless of their location. One of the key offerings is the F5 Distributed Cloud Services Platform, which enables seamless and secure connections across various environments, including on-premises setups, public clouds, hybrid environments, and edge sites.

Among the recently announced solutions on the platform is the Distributed Cloud App Connect, which offers an integrated approach to app networking and security, with features such as faster provisioning and ease of use. Additionally, the Distributed Cloud Network Connect simplifies and enhances connectivity across different cloud locations and providers.

These solutions come at a time when organizations are increasingly adopting distributed application deployments across various architectures and hosting environments, according to F5’s 2023 State of Application Strategy report. In fact, the report found that 85% of organizations operate in such environments.

Ehab Derbas, Senior Regional Director for Saudi Arabia and Egypt at F5, expressed excitement about being able to provide a platform-based approach that caters to the needs of both traditional and modern apps without adding complexity. Nidal Othman, CEO of StarLink, emphasized the significance of the Middle East and Africa region, particularly Saudi Arabia, in their partnership with F5.

Blackhat MEA presents an ideal opportunity for both StarLink and F5 to showcase their joint expertise. The companies are fully prepared to take advantage of the event and strengthen F5’s market presence in the MEA region.
