Modern DoS attacks against application logic at Layer 7 are hidden in encrypted channels, making them hard to detect. NGINX App Protect Denial of Service measures client behavior and server stress to detect and mitigate Layer 7 DoS attacks.
Layer 7 DoS attacks are a new and increasingly common threat to app performance and security. You need protection that integrates easily into your infrastructure and CI/CD pipelines, learns from observing user and app behavior, and doesn't affect performance even during an attack.
We explain how NGINX App Protect Denial of Service (DoS) adapts its mitigation methods in real time to protect against Layer 7 DoS attacks. By creating a model of normal user behavior and server health, it can spot deviations that signal an attack and apply customized mitigation signatures.
NGINX App Protect Denial of Service (DoS) protects your modern applications against sophisticated application-level (Layer 7) DoS attacks, including GET and POST flooding, Slowloris, Slow read, slow POST, Challenge Collapsar, NAT-disguised, and targeted SSL/TLS attacks.
Protect your applications from excessive traffic, including DDoS attacks, by controlling the requests they receive with NGINX rate limiting.
NGINX ModSecurity WAF protects you from a broad range of security threats, including DDoS attacks, SQLi, and XSS.
