How is Edgio Security Better?
Discover the Edgio Difference: Elevating Your Cybersecurity to New Heights
We will talk about the unique aspects that set our Edge Security platform apart from other security platforms, offering you a deeper insight into its unparalleled protection and advanced features.
Welcome to the Edgio Learning Center! Today, we’re here to help you understand how our Edge Security platform provides robust protection for your web presence. Whether you’re a business owner, a digital marketer, or just curious about cybersecurity, this guide is crafted for you — straightforward and jargon-free.
Why is Edge Security Essential?
Your website is the front door to your business. Just as you’d secure a physical storefront, it’s crucial to protect your online assets from various cyber threats. This includes attacks like SQL injections, cross-site scripting, and especially Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, which can jeopardize your infrastructure, application performance, and data confidentiality.
Core Features of Edgio Edge Security
The Shield: Think of our DDoS protection as a robust, invisible shield that surrounds your website. It’s designed to ward off massive traffic floods — whether they’re high-volume HTTP GET attacks or more insidious low and slow-rate DDoS attacks — ensuring your site remains accessible and efficient.
The Filter: Our Origin Shield acts like a sophisticated filter, handling incoming traffic through two caching layers. This significantly reduces the amount of traffic reaching your servers, similar to a well-managed queue system that ensures smooth entry during a high-profile event.
Web Application Firewall (WAF)
The Gatekeeper: Our WAF works like an intelligent gatekeeper, scrutinizing every bit of inbound HTTP/HTTPS traffic. It:
- Identifies unwanted traffic through HTTP request profiles and custom criteria.
- Blocks malicious or suspicious activities instantly.
- Implements rate limiting to manage traffic flow, preventing server overload.
- Filters out basic bots that are up to no good, protecting your site from various cyber misdemeanors.
Website Security through EdgeJS
The Customizable Armor: EdgeJS allows you to set up basic website security measures, like enforcing Content Security Policies (CSP), managing TLS certificates, and safeguarding sensitive data. It’s akin to customizing a security system specifically for your home.
The Threat Detection and Prevention Process
- Create Security Rules: Like setting up rules in a game, you can define what’s allowed and what’s not in terms of incoming traffic.
- Security App: This is where you put your rules into action, determining how traffic is handled and threats are managed.
- Monitor Threats: Using our dashboard, you can visualize and analyze threats, ensuring legitimate traffic flows smoothly. You can monitor security within your existing SIEMs with simple integration.
Tailoring Your Security Needs
Every business is unique, and so are its security needs. Whether it’s public or private content, different types of applications, or varying risk tolerances, our platform offers the flexibility to tailor security measures to your specific requirements.
