DDoS Mitigation With Dead Accurate Precision

Protection for Services (PFS) is suitable for the DDoS protection of any service. Literally any TCP or UDP port(s) can be filtered and proxied at Layer 4. PFS is especially useful for HTTP/HTTPS DDoS mitigation as requests are mitigated at Layer 7 using Black Lotus’ patent-pending Human Behavior Analysis (HBA) technology. With HBA, heuristics are used to make intelligent blocking decisions based on whether or not the request is deemed to have originated from a real human user. This means that a request can be identified as malicious and blocked, even if it is not exhibiting traditional DDoS attack signatures.
