F5 Distributed Cloud Analyst Station Frequently Asked Questions

What is Analyst Station?

Analyst Station is a machine learning-based SaaS solution from F5 that provides customers visibility into fraudulent activity impacting their business. This enables fraud and security teams to respond to impending threats in a timely and effective manner.

How can I get started with Analyst Station?

Analyst Station is currently in Limited Availability, meaning only a limited number of customers will be able to use it at this time. It will require the deployment of a JavaScript (JS) tag on the web pages that you would like to track.

Please contact your F5 account rep if you are interested in getting started with Analyst Station.

What are the benefits of Analyst Station?

Customers can leverage Analyst Station in support of multiple use cases:

  • Reviewing high-risk transactions in a machine learning-prioritized manner, with visibility as to why a transaction was marked as high-risk.
  • Investigating the behavioral history of any device, user, IP address, or ASN.
  • Providing direct feedback on transactions (fraud or not fraud) to seamlessly improve performance of machine learning models over time.
Does Analyst Station depend on any F5 product or version ?

Yes, the Analyst Station JS (version 2.3.5 or later) is required for deployment.

What is a transaction?

A transaction is equivalent to a page view. In the case of single-page applications (SPA), a page view is counted using the number of times a particular top-level URL in the browser’s location bar displays the URL where the Analyst Station JS is injected.
