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.
Despite the emergence of DevSecOps, security teams still seem to lag behind the pace of DevOps. Platform Ops can be the solution, where security teams provide self‑service, consumable policies to development teams. Find out how the NGINX suite of security products can help.
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.
Application security is hard, but there are some best practices to help you achieve it: automate as much as possible, build security as a guardrail instead of a gate, select solutions that provide easily understood insights, and make security adaptable, scalable, and reliable.
A combination of factors makes APIs rich targets for security attacks. We discuss methods for securing APIs throughout their lifecycle, from design and development through delivery, using WAFs, bot protection, API management tools, and API gateways.
