Limelight Cloud WAF (Web Application Firewall) protects your web sites and web applications against malicious HTTP application layer attacks that are intended to compromise your web site and steal data. TLS/SSL capabilities encrypt data so it cannot be intercepted in transit, and multiple content security methods are available so only authorized users have access to your valuable content.

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection

Limelight’s Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attack Interceptor ensures your web site remains open for business by defending against even the largest attacks intended to flood your web site with malicious traffic. Limelight's cloud-based, comprehensive multi-layer solution offers protection from even the largest and most complex DDoS attacks before they can impact website performance. Unlike on-premise DDoS solutions that need to be constantly maintained and updated and can be overwhelmed by large-scale volumetric attacks, Limelight DDoS Attack Interceptor is a scalable and cost-effective cloud-based protection service that is always up to date and doesn't require a team of in-house security experts. Limelight provides layers of DDoS defense, including detection of malicious traffic, proactive notification in the event of an attack, and mitigation of attacks through on-network globally positioned high-capacity scrubbing.

Web Application Firewall (WAF) Protection

Limelight Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects your web sites and web applications against malicious HTTP application layer attacks such as cross-site scripting and SQL injection that are intended to steal data. Limelight Cloud WAF provides high-performance protection ensures that only dynamic content requests need to be forwarded to the WAF for inspection. This minimizes the performance impact of WAF protection and locks down IP traffic, as the WAF only accepts traffic from the CDN.
