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

* We provide two kinds of Honeypots: Port Honeypot to block IPs which scan for open ports and Web Honeypot to stop hackers from scanning web application vulnerabilities. BitNinja Honeypots not only collect information about suspicious IPs, but also automatically blocks them to prevent further attacks. DoS
* DoS Detection: By default, IP addresses are blocked above 80 active connections at the same time. This threshold can be configured for each port. Beyond simply blocking HTTPS attacks, BitNinja blocks FTP, POP3, IMAP and any other TCP-based DoS attack. Our default thresholds and greylist provide the perfect balance between a low false positive rate and maximum protection. BitNinja Honeypots not only collect information about suspicious IPs, but also automatically blocks them to prevent further attacks.
* Realtime IP Reputation: The revolutionary power of BitNinja is our database containing information on 70,000,000 IP addresses worldwide. If an attack occurs on a server protected by BitNinja and the IP gets blocked, it will be not only blocked on that server but on every BitNinja protected server worldwide. This breakthrough technology is a BitNinja exclusive feature called a Defense Network. With every new server, our Defense Network grows stronger. Instead of immediately blacklisting a malicious IP, we invented a new technology called a greylist: this blocks suspicious activity while still making it easy for people to validate genuine requests.

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 18 000 global blacklisted malware signatures.”
