Individual IP address protection is ideal for gaming servers and SaaS applications, which have high-traffic, critical non-HTTP assets with low IP counts, as well as cloud deployments looking for direct-to-IP attack prevention.
Using this unique deployment model, Incapsula brings the benefits of infrastructure protection to customers who do not have an entire Class C subnet. This feature enables smaller organizations to protect multiple service types and protocols, even for a single IP address, without using BGP routing. Customers receive a “protected IP address” from Incapsula, which inspects and filters all incoming traffic. A redundant, secure, two-way GRE tunnel is used to forward clean traffic to the origin IP and to return outbound traffic from the application to the users.
