Frequently Asked Questions

Below are frequently asked questions related to the use of PowerWAF CDN:

The short answer is: yes. The long answer: PowerWAF is a CDN with WAF. In other words, in addition to optimising the speed of your sites, it also protects them against all kinds of cyber-attacks and data theft attempts.

Your sites will be protected against denial of service attacks, TCP/IP protocol attacks, server attacks, and all forms of attacks targeting your applications categorized as OWASP top 10.

The implementation of PowerWAF takes approximately 10 minutes. After that time you can monitor the operation and make any adjustments you deem necessary.

No. We know that for various reasons it is not always feasible to change the DNS of domains. We will only ask you to modify some records to add our CNAMEs. However, if you don’t know how to do it, we can always help you.

It doesn’t matter if your site is made in PHP, JSP, ASP or Node.JS. All web technologies are supported by PowerWAF.

It doesn’t matter if your server is Linux or Windows or if you use Apache or Nginx. PowerWAF is compatible with all these technologies.

Ideally, if sites have SSL certificates installed, so much the better. However, PowerWAF is able to display websites using http and https even if there are no SSL certificates installed on the origin server.

Yes, PowerWAF can read sites on any port and then display them publicly on ports 80 and 443.

PowerWAF is a CDN with traffic optimisation. We work to optimise the visualisation of websites. For this we use different techniques:

1. We bring static elements closer to the end user, reducing latency times.
2. We compress all files before sending them to the users, reducing the transmission time.
3. Because the static elements are on our network of servers, the latency time of generating the content on the origin server is eliminated.
