What is the WordFrame Integra proactive protection service?

proactive protection service status

The proactive protection service helps in blocking unwanted visitors. Such are email harvesters, comments spammers, DoS attacks and many other threats to the integrity and the security of the system. It is based on applying a user defined rules set to all web requests, in order to generate an IP blacklist which afterwards filters all incoming connection requests. You can define rules based on the request details, HoneyPot project status of the IP, the number of request for 60 seconds or what kind of error the request generated.

All requests from IPs in the blacklist are responded with error code "403 Forbidden" and an user defined error message.
