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.

How we are different

The revolutionary power of BitNinja is our database containing information on 70,000,000 IP addresses worldwide. Every server protected by BitNinja receives the latest updates on which IPs are safe and which are malicious. With each new server added, the defense shield grows stronger. 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.
In addition to the power of the global lists generated by our Defense Network, you can also manage your own user-level IP lists by adding single IPs, IP ranges, countries and even ASNs to them.
We also designed an industry-first IP reputation list that goes beyond typical black- and whitelists. Our greylist makes the IP management more flexible and provides a more convenient way to handle false positives, while still blocking potentially malicious requests. Greylisted IPs can be delisted by valid human visitors simply by completing a CAPTCHA or the BitNinja Browser Integrity Check (BIC).
