Kona Site Defender
Combines automated DDoS mitigation with a highly scalable and accurate web application firewall (WAF) to protect websites from a range of online threats, including network- and application-layer DDoS, SQL injection and XSS attacks. Network Layer Controls enforce
customer-defined IP whitelists and blacklists. List updates are propagated within minutes, enabling a rapid response to attacks. Other features include the ability to restrict requests from specific IP addresses to protect the customer origin from application-layer attacks
and to implement geo-blocking. Rate Controls provide protection against application-layer DDoS attacks by monitoring and controlling the rate of requests against the Akamai servers
and the customer origin. Provides protection against Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attacks for any traffic on port 443 (SSL or TLS) and inspects XML traffic for risky content,
allowing customers to block or alert on risky content.
