More Network Features!

Today we are releasing some major new features across all our products: Web Application Firewalls (WAF) and Advanced Traffic Management.

WAF is an HTTP-level firewall that protects your application against well-known attacks and exploits. Using WAF, you can block traffic to your applications from certain origins and detect and block specific attacks from reaching your application.

GeoIP WAF

OWASP Rules

You can now enable any of these rules on your Cloud 66 applications, quickly and easily. Head to OWASP Rules tab under the Traffic page of your application and enable or disable OWASP rules as needed. You can also fine-tune these rules directly in the OWASP configuration file using our (version controlled) CustomConfig system.

Web Traffic Filtering

Some lists of IPs are dynamic — for example, the list of a CDN’s endpoints. Traffic filters can call a URL as a source . Your application will fetch the complete list of IPs from that URL. Paste in the URL in the appropriate field under Traffic Filtering, and you are ready to go.

Surge Protection

Load Balancer Traffic Enforcement

If you need to reach your web servers directly from specific IPs (for example, your development machine or your office network), you can do this by excluding those from Load Balancer Traffic Enforcement.
