Anti-DDoS protection: choose UBIKA
Recognising and reducing distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks is a major challenge today. Companies, whether very large, medium or small, can all be scapegoats when it comes to such attacks.

WAF DDoS: how to protect yourself with Cloud Protector
The Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects web applications and APIs against various attacks such as those highlighted in the OWASP Top 10 (SQL injections, cross-site scripting (XSS) etc.), application layer denial of service (DoS) attacks such as amplification or Slowloris attacks, zero day attacks etc. It filters, analyses and blocks the content of HTTP / HTTPS requests in incoming traffic, based on their behaviour and logic. This protects your web resources from malicious users and distinguishes legitimate users from unwanted DDoS traffic.
