Does Incapsula protect from application (Layer 7) DDoS attacks?
Yes. Using a combination of behavior and reputation analysis, crowdsourcing, rate-based heuristics and a series of progressive challenges, Incapsula's traffic inspection technology differentiates legitimate website visitors from malicious bots. This capability is critical with respect to application layer (Layer 7) attacks, where the DDoS requests look like legitimate visitors. Real-time threat monitoring enables true real-time detection of application attacks, while an easy-to-use rule engine (IncapRules) enables quick creation and instant propagation of custom security rules to block these attacks. Incapsula DDoS Protection is supported by a 24x365 Security Operations Center (SOC) manned by security experts.
