Protection against service attacks and other malicious activities requires infrastructure investments, which can be too expensive for single applications. Using an application firewall and protection package can provide a cost-effective solution.
When do you need a protection package for your applications?
- You want to ensure continuous accessibility. Service interruptions damage your image and can cause actual financial loss, especially for e-commerce sites.
- You need protection against software errors. Large and complex systems are hard to keep error-free – which can leave you vulnerable to unauthorized data access or denial of service (DoS) attacks.
- Your system contains personal and/or sensitive data. Customers and companies alike put a premium on the safety and security of their data.
e-point is an authorized Imperva partner
Imperva Incapsula (Imperva Cloud Security) offers a comprehensive solution against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. Packaged with this protection is a dispersed content delivery network (CDN). This provides service protections that are compliant with international anti-DDoS standards. Plus, implementing Incapsula does not require application modification; depending on your product, its launch may be limited just to a DNS name modification.
e-point has carried out many Imperva Incapsula implementations. In addition to offering 24x7 Polish-language support, we can also manage or supervise the service on your behalf.
How does Imperva Incapsula work?
Services included in the package
This protection package provides a number of ways to secure your application and data against web-based attacks. We also offer continuous monitoring, which gives you more control over your resources’ security procedures.
- Web Application Firewall (WAF)
Blocks malicious requests to the application, e.g. cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, and other activities in the OWATS Top 10 list. WAF is characterized by high efficiency and an exceptionally low level of false alerts.
- Content Delivery Network (CDN)
Incapsula servers mediate content delivery and can relieve some of the Internet traffic on the customer's servers, reducing stress and bandwidth usage. Currently, Incapsula has 44 hubs in hosting centers around the world, 9 of which are in Europe and 1 in Poland itself.
To satisfy GDPR requirements, Incapsula allows you to identify the login event locations and heading data in one of three regions (Europe, America, and Asia).
- Protection against DoS/DDoS
Enables service and application operation during massive high-volume traffic attacks.
- Certified PCI compliance
WAF complies with the strict security standards set by PCI (Payment Card Industry) and required by credit card payment organizations.
- Bot classification
Blocks malicious bots while allowing bots from indexing engines (e.g. Google) to access the application.
- Content optimization
- Load balancing
Spreads traffic among several servers or server rooms for improved efficiency.
Serve encrypted traffic using your own certificates or those generated by Incapsula, an authorized SSL certificate issuer.
- Emergency websites
In the event of application inaccessibility or attack overload, Incapsula can display your emergency website(s) supplemented by required information (e.g. phone, e-mail, office address or customer service points, unit values, shares, etc.).
An administrative panel provides traffic stats, detected risks, and automated and user-generated traffic volumes.
- Reporting and notifications
Configure e-mail notifications for risk occurrence events (e.g. scanning, break-in attempts) and weekly reports.
- SIEM integration
Integrate the reporting of security events with leading SIEM tools, including Splunk, HP ArcSight, McAfee Security Manager, and Graylog.
- Two-factor authentication
Protect your application with two-factor authentication; hackers will need more than an administrator's password to get in.
Provides API-level access to multiple functions. If needed, Incapsula functions can be integrated with your infrastructure or monitoring management systems.
