Edgio App Security

WAF, Bot and DDoS protection at your fingertips

Protect Your Web Applications and APIs
Control, secure, and monitor your application with natively-integrated solutions

The Edgio App Security solution takes a multilayered approach to infrastructure protection and web application security to shield your business and your reputation from the latest in application-layer attacks. Our DDoS protection shields your business against attacks designed to overwhelm your infrastructure, and our WAAP includes a unique dual WAF inspection mode so you can easily implement and analyze proposed rule changes against live traffic with no interruption to performance. A fully PCI-compliant solution, Edgio protects your business against OWASP Top 10 security risks, remote code execution (RCE), SQL injection (SQLi), cross-site scripting (XSS), credential stuffing, scraping, DDoS attacks, and other security threats.

App Security Overview

Web Application & API Protection (WAAP)

Protect your web applications and APIs against security exploits by monitoring, filtering, and mitigating malicious traffic traveling to and from your applications. Edgio WAF protects against a variety of vulnerabilities such as SQL injections, cross-site scripting (XSS), remote code execution (RCE), OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities, and other common threats so your end-user data is protected from being breached.

The WAF (web application firewall) includes a dual inspection mode that lets you analyze rule changes against production traffic without disabling your production WAF. Dual WAF mode enables faster, more accurate deployment of security rules with zero WAF downtime. You never have to leave your web application exposed while you test.

Bot management

Bots make up over half of all internet traffic so how do you distinguish human traffic from bot traffic? And a bad bot from a good bot? The Edgio App Security bot solution gives you a clear and accurate picture of the bot traffic on your websites and APIs. Edgio Bot Manager is powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning to accurately determine in real time if an application request is from a fraudulent source, and if so, mitigate it. Bot Manager automatically adapts to maintain full efficacy even as attackers evolve and change their tactics to help protect you today and tomorrow.

Distribution Denial of Service (DDoS) protection

We’ve got your website and your back, with our DDoS protection that automatically detects and mitigates DDoS attacks on our distributed network edge — before they can impact your web infrastructure. Our software-defined, always-on DDoS protection is backed by a massive global network with 70X the capacity of the largest recorded attacks.

Secure to the core

The Edgio App Security platform complies with several sets of stringent privacy regulations including GDPR and the CCPA. In addition, we maintain PCI-DSS Level 1 compliance by undergoing annual audits from approved Visa and MasterCard auditors. ‍ By default, all customer traffic is protected with TLS v1.2 protocols.
