Website Firewall

You made the right choice by trying out our Sucuri Firewall on your website. The Sucuri Firewall is a cloud-based protective layer, that does not require any installation or modification to your server. With a simple DNS change, we will protect your website from brute force attacks, SQL injection, malware, DDoS, blacklisting and many other issues that webmasters face every day.

All you need to do is change your DNS A record to point to our firewall IP addresses instead of to your site’s hosting. By doing this, all your site’s traffic will be redirected to us, so we can filter malicious traffic, while allowing good traffic to proceed to your site.

As a bonus, you also benefit from better performance and speed due to our caching optimization, website acceleration and Anycast CDN (all included).

Key Features

The Sucuri Firewall bundles the best of a WAF (Web Application Firewall) and an IDS (Intrusion Detection System) to provide the protection required against today’s threats and attacks. It runs on top of our high-performance Anycast network infrastructure, giving you a CDN and website acceleration.

Some of the key features that we offer are:

  • Easy to enable and manage.
