Quarri Joins F5’s Technology Alliance Program to Deliver Efficient End-to-End Security of Web Browser Sessions

Quarri™ Technologies, a security software company that empowers organizations to keep their most sensitive data secure, today announced that it has joined F5 Networks’ Technology Alliance Program (TAP). By partnering with F5, the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, Quarri enables clients to maximize the value of deploying the companies’ products together. The companies’ combined solution of Quarri Protect On Q (POQ) with F5’s BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) will enable efficient, end-to-end security of web sessions for their mutual customers.

“Quarri is committed to providing organizations across industries with the strongest and most efficient protection for their critical data,” said Bill Morrow, executive chairman and CEO of Quarri Technologies. “Formalizing our alliance with F5 provides us the opportunity to jointly deliver a comprehensive web application security suite that includes BIG-IP LTM, BIG-IP Application Security Manager, BIG-IP Access Policy Manager and zero-hour malware and browser data leakage controls for mutual customers. By aligning our technology with F5 solutions, we are delivering an enhanced user experience, enabling them to optimize their POQ deployments for simplified enforcement and reduced overhead.”

Through the TAP partnership, F5 will promote assured interoperability and continued innovation with Quarri, and provide a framework for ongoing collaboration. Quarri is now enabling its enterprise customers to leverage their existing BIG-IP LTM appliances for enforcement of their POQ deployments. Organizations that deploy BIG-IP LTM as a front-end device for multiple independent web applications can require the use of a protected browser without modifications to any of their protected web applications.

“F5 welcomes Quarri to our Technology Alliance Program,” said Calvin Rowland, VP of Technology and ISV Alliances at F5 Networks. “Through partnerships with technology leaders in adjacent markets, F5 customers extend the value of their application delivery environments. Quarri Protect On Q and F5 customers are assured of interoperability and optimized performance when using these solutions in tandem.”

F5’s BIG-IP solution also allows for efficient caching of POQ session information, minimizing the amount of traffic between the BIG-IP device and the POQ Server. As a result, customers can substantially reduce the load on their POQ Server, and minimize their overhead on end-user traffic for POQ enforcement.

With Quarri’s POQ on demand web information security solution, organizations can address a variety of challenging security issues, including external and internal attacks, and unauthorized use and replication of confidential data. Leveraging Quarri’s patented technology, the POQ hardened browser provides zero-hour malware protection against key logging, frame grabbing, cache mining and inbound attacks. POQ also enables enterprises to enforce security policies that prevent end users from copying, saving, printing or screen-capturing browser-delivered data, preventing costly data breaches.

“Organizations using web and cloud-based applications are looking for solutions that enable them to enforce consistent enterprise security policies whenever and wherever these services are accessed and from managed and unmanaged devices,” said Neil MacDonald, vice president and Gartner Fellow. “Cloud access security broker platforms are emerging to provide a comprehensive set of security policy enforcement by interjecting security policy between users of cloud-based resources and the cloud-based services they are consuming.”
