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, very easy to enable and does not require any changes or anything installed on your server. With a simple DNS change, we will protect your website from brute force attacks, SQL Injections, malware, DDoS, blacklisting and many other issues that webmasters face every day.

All that needs to be done is changing your DNS A records to point to our firewall IP addresses instead of to your 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 through 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).
