Fail2Spam is a Ddos mitigation system designed to protect websites and REST API's from layer 7 Ddos attacks and distribute excessive peak traffic to prevent downtime and added expense.
We achieve this by utilizing a custom Proof Of Work algorithm that acts as a challenge to clients attempting to make requests to the protected site or API.
Once this challenge is completed it can be validated at the CDN or reverse proxy preventing excessive or malicious traffic from reaching application servers or databases.
This approach differs greatly from most modern Ddos prevention systems and can dramatically improve user experience for a website. Fail2Spam also has the unique ability to act as a challenge to automated systems attempting to reach a REST API, a task which is difficult for many Ddos prevention and detection systems that are reliant on attempting to filter requests based on whether they are made by a human user or automated system.
Fail2Spam can also reduce the need for CAPTCHA's which can act as an annoyance to users.
