#cybersecurity | #hackerspace | Signal Sciences Introduces Advanced Rate Limiting for Fast, Easy Protection Against Advanced Web Attacks

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Signal Sciences is excited to announce the availability of new advanced rate limiting features that extend our customers’ ability to detect and stop abusive behavior at the application and API layer.

Over the past several weeks as part of our early access program, we piloted advanced rate limiting in real-world production environments and stopped major attacks for customers from major retailers with large-scale e-commerce operations, financial services firms with mission-critical applications to major online media companies that stream video content to hundreds of millions of users monthly.

The Value of Intelligent Rate Limiting to Protect Applications

The primary objective of rate limiting is to prevent apps, APIs and infrastructure from being exploited by abusive request traffic, much of it originating from automated bot operators. Stopping this traffic from reaching your app and API endpoints means availability, reliability and a satisfying customer experience.

Up to this point, customers have used the Advanced Rules capability of our next-gen WAF to monitor and block web request traffic that attempts to carry out application denial-of-service attacks, brute-force credential stuffing, content scraping or API misuse.

Advanced rate limiting from Signal Sciences stops abusive malicious and anomalous high volume web and API requests and reduces web server and API utilization while allowing legitimate traffic through to your applications and APIs.

With our new advanced rate limiting capability, Signal Sciences customers can leverage the ease of use, effective defense and precise blocking they’ve come to expect from our next-gen WAF and RASP solution. In addition to out-of-the-box protection, they also gain immediate insight and understanding of the traffic origins and can take granular custom actions by:

  • Creating application-specific rules to prevent app and API abuse
  • Defining custom conditions to block abusive requests
  • Identifying and responding to a real-time list of IPs that have been rate limited
  • Taking action on the identified source IP addresses with one click

How Signal Sciences Advanced Rate Limiting Works

Leveraging our award-winning app and API web protection technology, advanced rate limiting provides intelligent controls to reduce the number of requests directed at key web application functions such as credit card validation forms, forgot password fields, email subscription sign-ups, gift card balance checkers and more.

Signal Sciences makes it easy to create application-specific rate limiting rules. One-click actions enable further control over automated volumetric web requests.

Our technical approach for this new capability was informed by the expertise our company has gained from protecting over a trillion web requests monthly. This experience shows us that web requests that result in application abuse can blend in with legitimate traffic. Signal Sciences advanced rate limiting is designed to identify such traffic and prevent individual IPs from causing app abuse.

Take the next step and effectively stop and manage abusive traffic

We invite you to learn about other common attack scenarios that customers use advanced rate limiting to thwart and how easy it makes stopping and managing the attack origin traffic: download the rate limiting data sheet or request a demo today.

Kentucky Has Second Highest Child Abuse Rate in U.S.

The number of Kentucky children who died from abuse, as well as overall cases of abuse, is on the rise.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Children’s Bureau “Child Maltreatment 2015” report — released in 2017 — shows a jump in child abuse cases in both Kentucky and Indiana. The commonwealth had 18,897 victims (17,932 in the 2014 report), or about 19 out of every 1,000 children. Kentucky’s rate is more than double the national average.

“We’re hoping the significant increase in cases is the result of more people spotting and reporting abuse, which means we’re potentially preventing even more deaths and getting children and families the help they need,” said Erin Frazier, M.

KANSAS HAS A HIGH RATE OF LATINA TEEN PREGNANCY, AND SO DOES THE REST OF THE U.S.

Kansas has the fourth-highest teen birth rate in the country, and experts say it’s because of the large Latino population in the southwestern part of the state.

MORE: See Homeless And Poor Pregnany Teens Pose Shame-Free

The trend is consistent with what’s happening nationwide.

While teen pregnancy rates are down 51 percent overall since its peak in 1990, Latina teens are still one-and-a-half times more likely to get pregnant than the national average and twice as likely to get pregnant as white teens. That’s roughly one-in-three Latinas who ends up pregnant by the time she is 20 years old.
