How It Works

A change to your DNS records ensures that all HTTP/S traffic to your domain(s) is routed through the Incapsula network. Acting as a secure proxy, Incapsula masks your origin server IP and persistently filters incoming traffic—blocking DDoS traffic while legitimate requests flow through unhindered.

The DDoS filtering process relies on a set of security rules that observe client behavior, reputation and HTTP footprint. These rules are supported by progressively-stringed security challenges. The effect is to thwart DDoS attackers while making the process invisible to legitimate clients.
