Firewall

Protects from malicious bots, brute force attacks, SQL injections, path traversal, DOS attack and many other known types of attacks.

WAF Learning Mode

WebTotem Firewall is based on AI and needs time to learn to protect your web-resource. Usually, the learning process takes up to 2 days.

WAF was built in such way that on your Dashboard you see everything that has triggered the firewall rules. But not everything triggered can be classified as an Attack. Thus, we have an AI, which goes through the triggered ones and decides whether to block them or not. Doing so, we ensure that there is no "false positives" and no harm to your website had been made. However, if you feel that something needs to be done, you can use our blacklisting feature to stop given IP from accessing your website.

WAF settings

WAF settings allow you to control the configuration of more advanced tools. They are needed to bring convenience to the user while protecting their site.

GDN (Global Defense Network)

This technology implies the protection of all systems that are in one global network If you enable GDN, then a user who is blacklisted by another site with GDN will not have access to your site.

DoS Protection

Our WAF prevents DoS attacks. A denial-of-service (DoS) attack is a type of cyber attack in which a malicious actor aims to render a computer or other device unavailable to its intended users by interrupting the device's normal functioning.

In the WAF settings you can set properties for DoS protection feature by typing the number of authorized requests per minute (from 500 to 10000 requests).

Login Attempts

Brute force attacks are also in our WAF's scope of work. In the WAF settings you can limit accessible login attempts per minute (from 5 to 30 attempts).

Allow/Deny Lists

Set your own WAF rules by allowing or denying access to your website to certain IP addresses in WAF settings.

423 access denied 423 code with access denial can means that there were too many suspicious requests from one IP address. 

If you are a web application admin or owner please add your IP to whitelist. Proceed to your firewall page in WebTotem dashboard (cabinet), find settings and click there advanced options, where you can find the whitelisting feature. 

If it does not work for any reason, you can also turn off firewall temporarily, by clicking on Settings on the right corner of your All stats page.
