How it works

File scanners are commonly used to detect backdoor shells. However, with new obfuscation methods and over a million new malware variants popping up every day, scanning has become as effective as looking for a needle in a haystack.

Incapsula has upgraded the technique, leveraging our edge position to identify and intercept all malicious incoming requests, including communication attempts with backdoors. Unlike the backdoors themselves, these requests cannot be obfuscated and are relatively easy to identify.

Tracking incoming requests lets Incasula accurately locate and quarantine backdoor files, allowing you to safely investigate and remove them at your convenience.

How it works

FAULTLESS MITIGATION

Backdoor shell protection is transparently integrated into Incapsula WAF and is able to disarm a backdoor without deleting it or making any changes to your file system.
