Customisable and Automated Protection
Kona Site Defender provides both customizable and automated protection in one solution, while curated rule sets allow you to tailor protection for accuracy. Automated protection extends security across your entire application.
Automatic API Discovery and Security
Automatically discover previously unidentified APIs - including API endpoints, characteristics, and definitions. This visibility enables security teams to easily stay on top of changing definitions or legacy APIs. Negative API security will then automatically inspect requests for threats, while a positive model allows only predefined APIs.
Built on the Akamai Intelligent Edge Platform, Kona Site Defender is designed to protect your applications from the largest DDoS threats, instantly dropping network-layer DDoS attacks at the edge and responding to application-layer attacks within seconds.
Granular Attack Visibility and Reporting
Executive-level dashboards and in-depth security analytics provide different views into your security events. Integration with other security solutions and security information and event management (SIEM) provides a unified view of security posture.
With visibility into prior malicious behaviour against other organizations, the optional Client Reputation service alerts you to traffic coming from known malicious clients, using a risk score in four different categories and tailored to your organization, so you can take appropriate action.
