Secure Your Web Services with Blue Chip and F5

13th July 2015


‘When it comes to advancing mobile technologies and mobile working, businesses must ensure that they are one step ahead of the threat landscape.’

That’s the message from Blue Chip following the end of support for Microsoft’s leading reverse proxy solution (TMG) in April 2015.

The IT specialist has joined forces with global leader in Application Delivery Networking, F5 to offer a complimentary, no-obligation Secure Web Services Consultation to businesses that allow remote access to web-based services, ensuring the protection and future-proofing of their systems.

Anthony Green, Sales and Marketing Director at Blue Chip explains: “The growth and success of web-based services means it is second nature for companies to give employees remote access to everything they need via applications on various devices.  However, this can expose them to vulnerabilities if they do not have a reverse proxy solution in place.  To explain - reverse proxies sit between web servers and the internet, acting as the first point of contact for HTTP and HTTPS requests, and are able to provide advanced inspection, transformation and routing of traffic before it hits a company’s network. Our consultation assesses a business’ need for an updated solution and covers the unique features available from F5’s products.”

F5 technology, available through Blue Chip, has unique reverse proxy features, which provide additional security and flexibility when publishing web based services externally. It is an integrated and intelligent product, ensuring secure remote access wherever employees are working to guarantee networks remain safe.

Anthony Green adds:  “With Microsoft’s end of support for the TMG product, this is an opportunity for companies to assess the current risks and be aware of a next-generation solution which is future-proof too.”
