comment How do CDNs protect failover sites from DDoS attacks?
Hi, Thanks. Much appreciated. To answer you questions: Front Gate Proxy: the term "proxy" implies on an intermediary relationship between the said network and your site. Meaning that the network will "sit" in-front of your site (hence "front gate") as a first line of defense, basically receiving all traffic 1st and filtering out all the "bad stuff", in our case by using Bad Bot blocking rules and vectors, WAF and so on. In case of DDoS this network will also help balance the extra traffic, thus preventing DDoS related issues. (i.e. crashes) POP = Points of Presence. You are 100% correct.
