Myra’s Security-as-a-Service platform protects the digital processes of companies, government agencies, and other organizations. The specially developed technology automatically analyzes incoming traffic flows and filters out threats and unauthorized, malicious access. Thanks to granular filtering functions and full traffic visibility, customers can decide for themselves what is permitted to access their digital processes. Myra also ensures the availability of digital content on the web, even during unanticipated peak loads. As a holistically designed solution, the individual products ideally complement each other and interact seamlessly, ensuring reliable security, performance, and the highest level of compliance.
Comprehensive DDoS Protection for Digital Processes
The key component of the Myra Security-as-a-Service platform is comprehensive DDoS protection on layers 3, 4, and 7, consisting of DDoS BGP Protection and DDoS Website Protection. The mitigation solution for data centers protects against volumetric attacks, which are characterized by very high bandwidths or massive packet rates. In contrast, the solution for protecting web applications and websites addresses attacks on layer 7 using HTTP-GET flood or low and slow attacks, as well as other attack vectors.
State-of-the-Art Content Delivery
DDoS Website Protection also serves as the basis for many other protection and performance solutions from Myra—including the Myra CDN. This technology employs RAM caching to deliver static and dynamic web content with a high level of performance, low latency, and minimal bandwidth utilization. This reduces the load on the origin server, lowering operating costs. Myra CDN servers are stationed at strategically significant network nodes on all continents to enable consistently high performance on a global scale and an SLA with availability of up to 99.999%. If desired, Myra will also deliver sensitive content exclusively over German servers to ensure that no data leaves the country’s borders.
Intelligent Protection against Cyber Attacks and Bad Bots
Myra Web Application Security with Hyperscale WAF, Deep Bot Management, and Malware Multiscan also builds on layer 7 protection. The tools prevent unauthorized, harmful access to online services, manage automatic requests on web servers, and block malware from being uploaded. This solution thus closes common security vulnerabilities such as those on the OWASP Top 10 and, at the same time, enables inbound bot traffic to be controlled effectively. While Myra blocks malicious requests targeting website content, benign bots are guided to customized content. Enhanced security with improved visibility and performance is the result.
Optimal Load Distribution for High Performance Web Applications
Concurrently, the Myra Multi Site Load Balancer ensures ideal load balancing on any number of backend servers. The solution automatically balances access to corporate server systems and data centers in real time. In addition, if technical disruptions occur, Myra Site Failover ensures that traffic is redirected to working servers. Standard load-balancing plans include Round Robin, IP Hash, Client IP, and Least Connection. Complex plans from Citrix/Cedexis, Conviva, and others are also easily implemented.
Full Visibility for Real Time Analytics
Myra Web Intelligence gives customers complete transparency over incoming traffic. Using fingerprinting technology, the solution reliably identifies all sources of access, enabling well-founded, customized data analysis. Myra analyzes all traffic information in real time and presents it clearly on the customizable dashboard. For comprehensive analyses, external data feeds based on Elastic Search and Grafana can also be included.
