Network Layer Protection

A programmable security perimeter at the edge of the network.


Build a security perimeter around your content, web applications and origin infrastructure.

Protect against expensive or reputation-damaging data breaches.

Stop abusive users or attackers with intelligent rules, including network blocking, rate limiting, tokens and more.

Update your filters in real-time to boost security efficiency.

Provides the reliability and performance you expect during large-size attacks.

Built on top of Azion's multi-layer security platform to provide state of the art protection for network and application layer threats.

Key Features and Benefits

The definitive security layer for your content and applications

Sophisticated cyber damage often involves multi-vector attacks - for example, state-exhaustion attacks combined with volumetric attacks. Azion's Network Layer Protection allows you to create your own rules directly at the edge of the network to tightly control access to your content, applications and origin infrastructure in multiple ways.

Build a security perimeter around your origin

The add-on Origin Shield allows you to create a security perimeter for your origin infrastructure (no matter if its in your data center or a cloud provider environment). When deployed with Azion's Managed DDoS Protection and our add-on Infrastructure Protection, you create an effective shield around your ASN too, providing unprecedent end-to-end protection.

Customize your rule set

There is no one size fits all security solution. Azion's Network Layer Protection allows you to customize your own rule set for each Edge Application or criteria and behavior you wish to protect. Meet your organization's compliance requirements by setting your own IP-based and ASN access controls (ACLs), rate-limits, secure tokens, geolocation-based blocking, whitelisting and many more.

Improved reliability during large-size attacks

Azion's Network Layer Protection is controlled by our SDN Router to ensure customer isolation for added security. Our best-in-class routing algorithms help maintain network performance and overcome complex network and application layer attacks.
