Blocking of controlling traffic of botnets, active zombies, Trojan horses, worms, and tools, such as LOIC, HOIC, Slowloris, Pyloris, HttpDosTool, Slowhttptest,Thc-ssl-dos, YoyoDDOS, IMDDOS, Puppet, Storm, fengyun, AladinDDoS, and so on C&C DNS request traffic blocking
- Feature-based filtering Blacklist
HTTP/DNS/SIP/DHCP field-based filtering, and IP/TCP/UDP/ICMP/Other Protocol field-based and load feature-based filtering.
High performance Web Application Firewall
The Web Application Firewall is a cloud-based WAF that stops website hacks and attacks. It detect and mitigate all kind of layer 7 threats and you can simply use default WAF rules like OWASP, SQL, WordPress and many more or add your own custom rules by client panel or (rest) API.
- Rule based WAF filtering for HTTP and HTTPS traffic.
- Default rule sets that include the Core Rule Set (CRS) and virtual patching for the most common applications.
- Logging and statistics about bad traffic.
- Start using the WAF without changing DNS settings for hosts within the serverius network.
- Alerting when a host is under attack.
- Debugging pages for diagnosing issues in WAF rules.
- Flood control per source IP
- Back/white list of GET/POST/PUT/HEAD/DELETE/CONNECT etc. filter request methods
- Proxy all traffic to Serverius or external IP subnets.
- Flood control per source IP filter.
- Enable known WAF rules groups.
- Enable DDoS, bad-bot or WAF protection for 1 or many IP subnets.
- Personal attacks map, detailed data-traffic graphs (per protocol).
- Creating a personalized baseline policy per IP or per hosted application.
- Enable/disable hundreds of protection methods per policy.
- Add/remove/search IP subnets by API.
- Protect IPv4 and IPv6.
- Run protection in transparent modes: detect but not protect.
- Optional Flowspec rules. Configurable by hand at the client panel or API!
- Set rate-limits per IP (Safe Zone group).
- Geographically IP blocking.
- Enable/disable commercial IP reputation blacklists.
- Creating advanced firewall rules and add them to Safe Zones.
- Learning mode! Protected IP data-traffic and its behavior is analyzed and is used to automatically adjust a personal security layer!
- Detailed email and SMS notification during IP attacks.
- Attack packet capture. When an attack happens, you can download .pcap files of the attack traffic.
- DDoS attack simulators to test your protection layer.
- Toptalker IP information for incoming and outgoing data traffic.
- Advanced/deep IP security scanner scanning your IP subnets on the latest vulnerabilities.
- Automatic null-route thresholds of unprotected IP subnets.
- Detailed attack reports per day, week or month.
“It’s by far the most advanced client panel in the world. Our engineers give technical presentations around the world to show how we technically did it. We try to add as much technical functionalities as possible, to give our users full control and transparent insights. Our DDoS test and deep IP application scan tooling will also advice our users to make their security layer better. This proactive approach will even prevent future hacks and future IP attacks”.
High-performance and volume cleaning
As Serverius is one of the 3 largest datacenter networks in the Netherlands we have up to 1,2Tbps cleaning capacity to defend our users against large DDoS attacks, such as SYN flood and DNS amplifications. In the past 12 months we defended against multiple 800Gbps+ IoT attacks what makes us one of the largest scrubbing environments in Europe. Beside this large volume attacks we were also able to protect 40Gbps Layer 7 and Web Application Firewall attacks.
But beside of capacity also high performance is needed to be able to filter Layer 7 attacks and keep the latency in general for all users really perfect. Because Serverius is using a ultra fast carrier hardware scrubbing environment known as the “IP Protection Cloud”, the IP network cleaning is performed through the full infrastructure. Therefore it’s not some a single scrubbing box what will be doing the job, many routers, switches, servers and connected carriers will work as one and provide the best latency possible.
Reverse security checkup
“Protecting your house against burglars with your front door wide open is of course not a good idea. An attacker will always try to use the IP application its weakness. Therefore it is important to close your door, check if all other windows are closed.”
Serverius advises his IP protection users to do the same when protecting their IP subnets: an protected IP application must be fully updated and secure before you enable the IP protection.
Therefore a list of advance scanning tools are offered to scan the IP application on thousands of vulnerabilities. When a security issue is found it will show the level of danger and how to repair the bug or improve application security. It will help you to improve the general security level of your infrastructure!
Personalized en global IP reputation
The famous IP reputation system “IP Judge” of Serverius will keep track of known botnets and other vulnerable IP subnets outside the Serverius network. It will add an security layer to the global and personal user protection layer to prevent low volume dirty data traffic. More information you can find here.
As an extra users can enable another version of the IP reputation per personal IP protection security layer. This daily updated security IP reputation database is generated by 12 worldwide data centers what are analyze 12 billion queries per day, track IP addresses of the most active 5 million botnets and zombies.
Both will prevent attacks by common used botnets and/or abused source IP subnets.
By API request IP subnets can be added and removed to the IP protection. This way you can for example announce a /24 and add only a /32 by automation to the IP protection. This way all data traffic will be forwarded transparently and only the single IP is filtered.
Secondly, API requests can also be used to add/remove IP subnets to Flowspec.
Personal IP Protection Cloud training!
Everyone with a little bit of IP knowledge can work with the Serverius IP Protection Cloud. At the first time seeing the huge amount of functionality it will be a little bit to much but lateron you will love it!
Therefore Serverius provides free personal on to one training by skilled engineers. It will put all functionality in perspective and it will show you the great functionality. These personal training sessions can take place by telephone or at one of the Serverius office meeting rooms or private location (travel cost will be invoiced as an extra). Language are English, Dutch, or Russian.
