Protect Your Production Environment from Advanced Persistent Threat (APTs)
As more companies move their core business operations to the cloud, APTs have begun to target websites and applications as a "soft spot" in the security architecture. Incapsula's service provides key security components designed to prevent many of the tactics used by APTs to penetrate IT infrastructures, steal sensitive data and sabotage production environments.

- Flexible two factor authentication (2FA)
- Backdoor shell detection and removal
How Incapsula Helps Protect Against APT Attacks
Incapsula's service secures web applications, which are a primary gateway into the production environment. The service provides several key components that are specifically designed to prevent many of the tactics used by APTs.
Two-Factor Authentication for Web Applications
Given that users are the weakest links in the security chain, reliance on passwords has proven time and again to be disastrous, particularly when the protected entity is the company's production environment. Incapsula's Two-Factor Authentication lets you implement strong two-factor access authentication for the production environment, without integration, coding or software changes.
Web Application Firewall (WAF)
Incapsula's WAF ensures that your website or application is always protected against any type of applicative hacking attempt. Based on industry-leading WAF technology and experience, Incapsula's cloud-based WAF defends against OWASP top 10 threats including: SQL injection, cross site scripting, illegal resource access and remote file inclusion
Backdoor Shell Protection
Incapsula's WAF monitors website traffic to detect and prevent backdoor install attempts and to quarantine backdoors which may have already been installed prior to activating Incapsula, rendering them useless. Backdoor signatures and heuristics are constantly updated within Incapsula's security engine.
Comprehensive DDoS Protection
APTs are often masked by DDoS attacks, which serve as a smokescreen intended to tie up the IT security team and distract their attention from the "true" attack target. By automatically detecting and mitigating DDoS attacks, Incapsula enables organizations to remove this “white noise” tactic from the APT equation.
