Introducing Fully Managed Behavioural Application DDOS Protection Solution

  1. Ability to observe the volume of requests, as initial defence against volumetric app DDOS is to scale and observe requests sent to the application without running out of resources
  2. Identify unwanted requests and drop them quickly. These detections are done by identifying unusual spikes and blocking them
  • Rate limits can be configured only on certain identity. i.e. It can be configured to not allow more than x requests in a time period from 1 IP/user etc. but it cannot be configured to only forward y requests to an application in that time period since that would lead to legitimate users being blocked
  • Behavioural DDOS can be configured to be triggered if behaviour of requests to application changes, which means any normal variance in request is accounted for and alerts are triggered only when there is an abnormality
  • By default, three policies that monitors traffic on host, IP and session level are configured
  • When an application is onboarded, these policies are configured with generic values that works for most applications
  • Within a few days of onboarding the application, based on behaviour observed, appropriate values are derived which provides optimal protection
  • Customers can configure additional policies based on their need. Policies can be configured to take various actions when triggered including blocking the requests outright.
