30 Day Free Trial Available - aiProtect identifies and mitigates DDoS attacks, while tracking the source and method of the attack. aiProtect works like a reverse proxy server and is placed in between your origin server and the web. Some examples of defensive measurements include: IP blocking, enforcing client time-limits, intelligent traffic throttling, and reverse Turing tests. IP blocking: aiProtect identifies the offending addresses and blocks all traffic, while writing offending addresses to a directory for analysis. Intelligent request throttling: This limits requesting clients to a certain number of requests per interval ...  Read more

Highlights
  • You do not need to change or upgrade your existing infrastructures if you are under DDoS attacks. Simply point your web site's DNS record to the aiProtect instance. This will detect and block hostile IPs and only pass legitimate requests to your backend server.
  • Provides mitigation against the most common DDoS attacks: We have built a firewall into the AWS machine image and with proper configuration supported by our engineers we can protect against SYN floods. Our support team can also provide best practices for configuring internal AWS security for your site to force traffic through the DDoS mitigation process protecting your internal infrastructure from direct attack.
  • Implements aiScaler's superior HTTP(s) caching algorithm, for full page caching and dynamic web caching. Enabling the web cache feature, will further off-load your origin server, creating an extra layer of defense. See benchmarks of our caching performance under heavy stress: http://aiscaler.com/application-delivery-controllers-on-the-cloud

Product Description

aiProtect identifies and mitigates DDoS attacks, while tracking the source and method of the attack. aiProtect works like a reverse proxy server and is placed in between your origin server and the web. Some examples of defensive measurements include: IP blocking, enforcing client time-limits, intelligent traffic throttling, and reverse Turing tests. IP blocking: aiProtect identifies the offending addresses and blocks all traffic, while writing offending addresses to a directory for analysis. Intelligent request throttling: This limits requesting clients to a certain number of requests per interval. For example, aiProtect can limit a client to 20 requests per 10 seconds. This method of throttling is different from simple RPS-limiting and is much more user friendly. If your typical page consists of 10-15 items, such 20:10 limit will allow users to view a complete page every 10 seconds, presenting no inconvenience for a human, but preventing bots from taking down your server. The most extreme defence (optional): Reverse Turing Access Token Control (RTATC). This feature is like a very flexible and configurable CAPTCHA. If the response indicates the presence of a human, an access token, good for configurable amount of time is issued to the requesting browser. You can deploy aiProtect without studying any programming language. Go to our web-based deployment tool and see how you can switch between a text editor and a graphical interface.
