Client Reputation

Stop malicious clients before they can attack, based on Akamai’s visibility into prior behavior of individual IP addresses

Apply an additional layer of protection for your web applications on top of Kona. The changing threat landscape forces enterprises to constantly improve the ability to act on suspicious client behaviors. Acting in a way that further reduces the risk of successful DDoS or application layer attacks and, at the same time, minimizes the impact to legitimate users.

Client Reputation can increase the accuracy of your security decisions to better identify malicious clients. It uses a state-of-the-art, proprietary risk analysis engine that computes a risk score for every source IP address, customized for every customer. This custom risk-based scoring model is significantly more accurate than generic scoring. Client Reputation provides deep visibility into client activities and adds an additional, very sophisticated intelligence-based protection layer to our customers’ web application delivery.
