gRPC provides the speed and flexibility developers need to design and deploy modern applications, but its open nature makes it highly vulnerable to Layer 7 DoS attacks. NGINX App Protect DoS protects your gRPC apps from these crippling 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.
To load balance applications in Microsoft Azure, you can choose NGINX Plus, Azure Load Balancer, or Azure Application Gateway. Explore their different sets of supported features, and learn how combining NGINX Plus with the Azure offerings gives you the best of both worlds.
