Shape Security and Volterra moving to F5 Distributed Cloud Services



In the last few years, F5 acquired Shape Security, Volterra, NGINX and Threat Stack--broadening the F5 portfolio of products. To simply our growing portfolio, products from Shape Security and Volterra will now converge under a new F5 Distributed Cloud Services brand. 

From now on there will be three primary F5 product brands: BIG-IP, NGINX, and Distributed Cloud Services. 

For more information on these changes, please see the F5 Brand Updates page.

So what does this mean for you?

Your experiences with these F5 products should remain largely unchanged. That being said, here's a few minor changes that may affect you:

  1. In-product experiences, DevCentral posts, and other F5 materials will reflect the new names.
  2. Specific website domains will no longer exist. will redirect to, where users can login on the Distrubuted Cloud Services page. Interactions with the respective products, assigned tenant name spaces/URLs, and who you work with for support and customer service will not be impacted.
  3. Product documentation for F5 Distributed Cloud Protection Manager and Distributed Cloud Console will also move. You can see the new locations here: 
Historical Product Name  New Product Name  Product Documentation Location
