Application DoS Protection

Dynamic denial-of-service protection designed for modern application architectures


Apps enable businesses to gain a competitive advantage, but they’re an increasing target for denial-of-service (DoS) attacks that lead to downtime, lost revenue, and a damaged brand. Modern apps are distributed across clouds and architectures—and integrated with development tools and CI/CD pipelines—yet traditional DDoS mitigation is centralized, static, and stateless.

NGINX App Protect DoS secures modern, distributed apps and APIs using continuous client and server analysis with no touch configuration and mitigation that offers a low overhead solution to stop application DoS.
