Application Shield is a cloud-based WAF and DDoS protection solution, deployed on CDNetworks global Points-of presence (PoPs) to detect and defend against web attacks in real-time. This happens at the edge of the network, far before the attack can hit, manipulate, or overwhelm the customers’ data centers and origin servers. CDNetworks’huge infrastructure also deﬂects DDoS attacks, keeping them away from smaller, more vulnerable networks. As customers continue to use the platform, the data gathered is fed to CDNetworks’ big-data system, powered by AI to further process events offline, in near real-time to generate new defense strategies. These strategies are then distributed immediately to all PoPs, making the entire defense infrastructure even more eﬀective.
