Rate Limiting

Rate Limiting lets you place limits on request volume at the network perimeter. Organizations of all sizes can adopt this edge configuration to block malicious traffic. Rate Limiting can be configured to guard critical assets including login, form, and promotional pages by adding another layer of security to your site.

The benefits of Rate Limiting include:

  • Volumetric Attack Mitigation - Reduce the effectiveness of malicious traffic, including brute-force login and denial-of-service attacks.

  • Policy-based Control - Adjust configurations for your policy, including requests per second, and detection window.

  • Custom Responses - Select from actions that allow you to block requests or log them, and configure custom responses for your policy.
