The Signature files panel in BIG-IQ Web Application Security lists the signature files for each discovered BIG-IP device, and enables you to view the properties for these files.
Currently, administrators can manage signature files for one BIG-IP device from the BIG-IP Configuration Utility. BIG-IQ Web Application Security, however, provides central management for signature files and signature file updates for multiple devices.
Managing signatures from the BIG-IQ platform enables the administrator to spend less time on signature updates and to view the signatures update information in a single central location.
BIG-IQ Web Application Security fetches all new and relevant signature files automatically from an external server proxy configured from the system interface. It then pushes the signatures to the relevant BIG-IP device or to multiple BIG-IP devices. It displays the signature version for each device.
