Key Information

Total Visibility

Nova's "worker" ADCs are in constant communication with the Nova Cloud Controller, allowing detailed real-time monitoring and reactions to threats.

Powerful Telemetry

More than just TCP data, Nova monitors request rates, HTTP error rates, HTTP POSTs, known vulnerability endpoints and much more to determine the likelihood of a threat in real time.

Machine Learning and AI

Nova's ML engine profiles your ADCs and the servers behind them, constructing a pattern of "normal" behavior to identify anomalies. Real-time telemetry allows instant recognition and response.

Central Security Orchestration

Centrally manage, deploy and control blacklists, whitelists, rulesets, rate limits and more across all your ADCs (multiple clouds / locations).

Layer 7 WAF

Nova provides a full OWASP protection suite, ensuring your site and apps are PCI compliant and protected from threats.

DoS Protection

Nova automatically mitigates Denial of Service attacks, with AI and ML-driven dynamic adjustments to traffic based on real-time telemetry.

Intelligent Application Firewalling

Nova's WAF operates at Layer 7. That means intelligent, high-performance security with incredible analytics, anomaly and threat detection.

Nova’s patent pending communications technology enables real-time telemetry that feeds Nova’s AI security engine. The Nova WAF protects against bots, scrapers, data leaks, spammers, SQL injections, XSS attacks, denial of service and much more.

  • Automatic A+ SSL: ensure your SSL is as secure as possible, keeping your users data safe.
  • Intelligent HTTP/S Security: Nova ADCs include the powerful Nova security suite, protecting against DoS, threats, botnets, and application attacks, and powered by ML.
  • Protect against common vulnerabilities: Easy-to-use OWASP Top 10 protection for all your VMs, Cloud servers and containers.

Easy and flexible central security configuration

You can enable Nova's WAF on any HTTP/S Nova ADC with a single click of a button, and it is easy to use and manage.

Enable your DevOps and IT Ops teams to have precise control of security and monitoring of your modern infrastructure, including a full API for alerts, ruleset changes and more.


Detailed Logging and Analytics

Get detailed statistics and logs for your security.

This data is also fed into Nova ADC to make routing and weighting decisions for your Nova Nodes, and to prepare to scale out if necessary.

Nova automatically profiles traffic to block bad-actors and prevent DoS attacks.


Automated Best Practices in Security

Automatically and transparently alter traffic as it leaves your network to ensure maximum security.

Processing over 12,000 SSL TPS, Nova ADCs can automatically secure cookies, add stricter headers, prevent referrer leaking and much, much more.

Nova is built for HTTP/S performance, scalability, and security.
