Deploy Bot Defense on any Edge with F5 Distributed Cloud (SaaS Console, Automation)

Introduction

This guide, along with the provided scripts and sample app and services, is designed to help explore and demonstrate the use cases of the F5 Distributed Cloud (XC) Bot Defense in a variety of different cloud environments including AWS, Azure, GCP, and within the Distributed Cloud (XC) Regional Edge.

XC Bot Defense Connector Strategy

F5 Distributed Cloud Bot Defense meets you where you’re at when it comes to deployment flexibility.​​ We make it ridiculously easy for you to deploy XC Bot Defense either in the cloud, on-prem, or as a hybrid configuration with pre-built connecters in leading application platforms and CDNs to make deployment easy and fast. 

Choose Your Path

Within each deployment scenario, you can choose your path with the following options to deploy the specified Bot Defense environment using either the console deployment link or automation with terraform.

Module 1 Deploy Bot Defense on Regional Edges with F5 Distributed Cloud
Module 2 Deploy F5 XC Bot Defense for AWS Cloudfront with F5 Distributed Cloud
Module 3 Coming Soon*** Deploy Bot Defense in Azure with BIG-IP Connector for F5 Distributed Cloud
Module 4 Coming Soon*** Deploy Bot Defense in GCP Using BIG-IP Connector for F5 Distributed Cloud 

 

XC Bot Defense Scenarios

The modules below lay out a framework for connecting and managing distributed app services for this scenario, with a focus on the three core use cases.

MODULE 1: Deploy Bot Defense on Regional Edges with F5 Distributed Cloud

In this scenario, we will be deploying our fictitious airline application into a Regional Edge location of our choosing via the VK8's service in XC. We'll walk through all of the required steps, provide the vk8's manifest file and front end this application with an XC HTTP Load Balancer. In addition, the HTTP Load Balancer will be used to front-end our application and enable our XC Bot Defense Service.
