In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

Shared hosting companies have special needs when it comes to server security. With hundreds or thousands of domains hosted on a single server, it can be hard to filter out malicious requests while allowing genuine visitors to connect to your hosted sites.The most effective way to block website cyberattacks is at the application layer using a Web Application Firewall (WAF). The BitNinja WAF 2.0 operates between visitors’ web browsers and your web server. It’s a very fast reverse proxy which filters all incoming web requests, automatically rejecting any attacks.

The BitNinja WAF 2.0 makes it easy to manage all your firewall settings from one location, and you can also configure the filter level by domain. By using domain-based patterns you can change the strictness level by domain or by URL, blocking malicious traffic and allowing genuine traffic to reach each hosted site. This unique feature is only available with BitNinja and makes life a lot easier when managing shared servers.

To keep you secure from the latest threats, we are constantly patching new kinds of CMS vulnerabilities by adding new WAF rules to the rulesets. We also include automated false positive reporting which allows you to fine-tune the settings if needed, and we guarantee a low false-positive rate with the pre-defined rulesets.

Brief Overview

Our mission is to make the internet a safer place. BitNinja ServerProtection is a multi-layered security system for web hosting providers. It blocks server attacks at any threat level automatically and makes the troubleshooting of all security incidents easier via a self-service console. We make our clients’ security faster and smarter by hardening the usual security arsenal (WAF, maldet) with an intelligent defense network. We have a real-time IP reputation system against botnets, WAF against web attacks, log analysis against brute force attacks, honeypots against scans, malware detection, and DoS detection.

We have more than 27 000 installs from 80 different countries around the world, and we defend 4.5 million websites. Thanks to our crowdsourcing method, our real-time IP reputation system has historical information about 100+ million IP addresses in its database. Our Source Code Structure Analysis technique is unique on the market. Its malware signature database uses the same crowdsourcing method as our IP reputation system, and it already has more than 40 000 malware signatures.
