Talk to a Developer

An intelligent WAF that protects your application from the most advanced security threats.

ThreatX is an intelligent WAF that learns your application’s specific threat profile and automatically blocks threats while protecting legitimate traffic. ThreatX requires no configuration by you and is backed by a team of security experts who constantly monitor the latest hacker trends alongside your application’s vulnerabilities.

By combining Section and ThreatX, you get enhanced scalability and performance through Varnish Cache and Section’s Edge Compute Platform in addition to a next-generation WAF. With Section, adding ThreatX to your application is easy. A simple DNS change is all that’s needed to enable ThreatX on to your application.

How ThreatX identifies and blocks more threats.

Smart Threat Identification: ThreatX uses smart sensors to analyze your site’s traffic patterns and identify malicious entities based on their combined behavior, rather than on individual security events. ThreatX identifies not only the entity performing the attack, but also the level of progress made by the attacker by tracking threats across the seven states of attack and providing you with multiple response options.

Real Time Threat Response: ThreatX factors out false positives and duplicate security events and escalates only when a specific entity has made progress to a level defined by you. Malicious traffic can be tracked, blocked, or slowed down by redirecting it through a highly-interactive network honeypot trap.
