Cloudbric offers protection against DDoS attacks, malware and viruses. Malware infections are extremely troublesome and not only causes severe distractions from regular operations, but also threaten your business and customers as well. This is because hackers use malware to find and attack vulnerabilities within your network thus begin spreading malicious code without your knowing. As hackers have become more motivated to conceal the malware in creative ways, we have received lots of questions asking if Cloudbric can protect against malware and viruses, however as WAF cannot help with sites already infected, it is crucial for users to protect their sites beforehand.
When you register your website to Cloudbric, you will have to change your website DNS records (Cloudbric will provide this) so that all HTTP/HTTPS traffic passes through the Cloudbric server. Cloudbric will not only protect your website from DDoS attacks (depends on DDoS attack methods/types) but also filter out other malicious traffic. You can read more about how Cloudbric can help against DDoS attacks here.
Cloudbric will act as a buffer for your website, preventing malware from being uploaded into your website. All hacking attempts including malware injection are bounced off your website and are blocked before ever obtaining access. Using patented logic-based detection engine, Cloudbric monitors your website and identifies hackers who try to input any malicious codes or files. As the engine can detect even unknown attacks, Cloudbric can be the most effective preemptive tool to cut off popular types of malware, such as ransomware, adware, rootkit, spyware and worms and more
While web application firewall is a proactive security solution that helps you from getting into trouble, you should check if your website is already infected. If you haven’t been using a solution like Cloudbric from when you first made the website, the site might already be compromised. Cloudbric focuses more on protection, however we highly recommend you use a malware removal tool so that you’re certain about the health of your website before investing security solutions into it.
