Protection against DDoS attacks
PowerWAF is an advanced web application firewall designed to protect against a wide range of cyber attacks, including DDoS attacks at both layer 4 and layer 7 of the network stack. DDoS attacks can be incredibly disruptive to online businesses, causing website downtime, slow performance, and in some cases, data breaches. PowerWAF provides robust protection against these attacks, allowing businesses to operate with confidence.
At layer 4 of the network stack, PowerWAF uses a number of techniques to detect and mitigate DDoS attacks. These attacks typically involve a large number of requests from many different sources, often overwhelming the target website's servers. PowerWAF can identify these requests and block them before they reach the server, preventing them from consuming valuable resources. In addition, PowerWAF can use rate limiting to slow down the rate of incoming requests, ensuring that the server is not overloaded.
At layer 7, PowerWAF provides more advanced protection against DDoS attacks. Layer 7 attacks are often more sophisticated and difficult to detect, involving requests that mimic legitimate traffic. PowerWAF uses a number of techniques to identify and block these requests, including signature-based detection, behavior-based detection, and machine learning algorithms. By analyzing traffic patterns and identifying anomalous behavior, PowerWAF can accurately identify and block malicious traffic while allowing legitimate traffic to pass through.
Overall, PowerWAF provides comprehensive protection against DDoS attacks at both layer 4 and layer 7. By using a combination of techniques to identify and block malicious traffic, businesses can ensure that their websites remain available and performant, even in the face of sophisticated cyber attacks. With PowerWAF, businesses can focus on running their businesses while leaving the cybersecurity to the experts.
