Cloud-based Web Application Firewall

Cloudbric acts as a firewall to shield your website and website applications (like WordPress and Joomla) against hackers. It guards against suspicious and malicious website traffic, which specifically looks for opportunities to exploit weaknesses in your website’s code.

How Cloudbric works

There could be weak code in your web design or web applications, that makes your website vulnerable to exploitation by hackers. Cloudbric keeps an active list of the exploitative attempts made by hackers and permanently blocks them. The hacking commands are added to a blacklist within hours of the discovery.Cloudbric does not fix weaknesses that may exist in your code. Rather, it disables attempts to exploit the weaknesses.

Best of all? Because Hetzner hosts Cloudbric locally, your website’s speed won’t be affected: you won’t even notice the highly sophisticated security happening in the background.

There are 3 key ways that Cloudbric protects your site:

  • Web Application Firewall (WAF)

    All web traffic to your website is routed through the WAF, where it detects and blocks malicious traffic, while allowing legitimate traffic through.

  • Website-level DDoS Protection

    Cloudbric blocks DDoS attacks which could exhaust your website resources and make it inaccessible to the visitors you want.

  • Blocking specific countries and IP ranges

    Cloudbric’s dashboard allows you to perform certain tasks like blocking visitors from specific countries or IP addresses from accessing your website.
