Upgrade your BIG-IP systems for more secure apps
Keeping your BIG-IP software up to date ensures you have access to advanced capabilities and higher-quality, more secure releases. At a minimum, F5 recommends implementing BIG-IP 14.1.0 across your BIG-IP fleet. BIG-IP 15.1.0 and 16.0.0 will reward you with the most advanced BIG-IP functionality, including new protocol support and security capabilities.
For a walkthrough of three common upgrade scenarios, watch the following videos:
