SNAPI : Secure Network Application Protection Infrastructure

What is SNAPI Guard?

SNAPI Guard specializes in Infrastructure and Application Security. Fully managed infrastructure services, fully managed DDoS protection and advanced Web application firewall

SNAPI Guard provides a variety of different managed security services to protect your infrastructure, your applications and your customers/users.  SNAPI Guard can manage your firewalls, IDS/IPS, ADC/Load Balancers, Routers, DDoS CPE, WAF, and any other security devices.  Network and Application availability and protection all start with the availability of service.

SNAPI Guard identifies new threats as they emerge and remedies all types of cyber attacks, including attacks targeting your network (Layers 3-4), applications (Layer 7) and DNS servers in real time. SNAPI Guard mitigates large DDoS attacks that flood your Internet pipe, and flushes protocol-based attacks (“bad” traffic) before they reach your infrastructure (F/Ws, IDS/IPS, ADC, routers, servers, and applications). Only “clean” traffic reaches your infrastructure, ensuring your continued operations and protecting your hardware, software and network infrastructure investment.

Not only are Web attacks more numerous than ever before, they are getting increasingly more sophisticated. While you investigate and work to mitigate a large attack, the hacker can proceed to steal money and customer, employee, supplier data; or simply compromise your databases.

SNAPI Guard detects and mitigates the largest and smartest DDoS attacks. It provides infrastructure protection from protocol-based DDoS attacks such as SMTP, SYN floods and UDP/TCP floods.

Furthermore, SNAPI Guard’s next generation Web application firewall identifies malicious traffic in real time using deep packet inspection and rule & policy enforcement to protect your website and applications from misuse of legitimate Web transactions causing denial of service breaches such as HTTP floods.

SNAPI Guard offers full protection from DNS-targeted DDoS attacks by detecting and blocking malicious queries through granular inspection and controls.

SNAPI Guard’s proprietary technology provides less than 0.1% false positives and is recommended by NSS-Labs.

SNAPI guard will also protect your entire security infrastructure through our managed service offering.  We can do this by providing and implementing the CPE as part of your managed service, or by simply managing your existing security infrastructure – firewalls, IDS/IPS, ADC/GSLB, routers, and general IT infrastructure if required.


Based on your specific needs, SNAPI Guard will enable you to enjoy access to a secure Internet link and protect your network infrastructure, DNS servers, website and applications, emails and databases from unauthorized or malicious intrusions, quickly and seamlessly, while complying with all relevant international industry security standards and applicable privacy legislation.

Pay only for the specific level of protection you need. No hardware, software or training investment required.


Simply change your DNS records to enjoy immediate full protection.

What’s at risk?

In its January 2017 report on the cost of data center outages in the United States, the Ponemon Institute underlines that the average cost related to a cyber attack 27.4 per cent year on year to an average of over $1M.
A successful cyber attack will have a dramatic impact on all the key performance indicators of your business or organization.

Productivity loss

By crippling your email servers or VoIP network, an attack will have a significant impact on your productivity by severing internal and external communication links.

Financial loss

By disrupting your business model, an attack will not only cause a loss of revenue or lead to lost business opportunities, but may also require funds to cover the cost of infrastructure repairs and replacement.

Loss of visibility

In a world where “instant on” has become the norm, you run the risk of increased customer churn and decreased supplier and business partner confidence by going black as a result of a successful cyber attack.

Loss of trust and reputation

A breach in the security of your databases will have a dramatic impact on the quality of your hard-earned relationships with clients and customers, suppliers and partners, and may even have serious legal implications.

Loss of IT focus

By having to detect, contain and engineer a recovery from cyber attacks now more than ever, your IT personnel is distracted from their mission-critical responsibilities.

Decreased marketing ROI

With the ever-growing importance of the Web within the marketing mix of businesses and organizations, and with significant portions of advertising budgets invested in “drive-to-Web” initiatives, a successful cyber attack leads to a significant loss of marketing efficiency and to the waste of precious resources.


The right protection against sophisticated cyber attacks

Regardless of the quality of your firewall, it can still leave you vulnerable to various types of cyber attacks. In fact, the firewall can be a target of cyber attacks. It is critical that all of your infrastructure including your firewalls are protected. SNAPI Guard applies set rules to the HTTP conversations traveling along your network. These rules usually cover common attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injections designed to destroy or compromise your databases. By customizing the rules to your specific applications, SNAPI Guard can readily identify and effectively block such attacks in real time. Furthermore, SNAPI Guard will also protect your applications from illegal resource access and other Top Ten threats regularly identified by the Open Web Application Security project (TOP 10 OWASP).

SNAPI Guard’s complete protection solution allows you to comply with PCI DSS, HIPAA, Basel II, SOX and all international data privacy legislations.

SNAPI Guard’s WAF technology is recommended by NSS-Labs and provides less than 0.1% false positives. In full proxy mode, SNAPI Guard has the option of implementing two-factor authentication for any website or application without integration, coding or software changes. Our advanced client classification technology detects and blocks, in real time, malicious bots that are often used to apply DDoS attacks, scraping and vulnerability scanning.

What is a DDoS attack?

DDoS stands for “Distributed Denial of Service.” A DDoS attack is a malicious attempt to make a server or network resource unavailable to users, usually by temporarily interrupting or suspending the services of a host connected to the Internet. These attacks can significantly impact your business by interrupting all your email traffic, and cutting off access to or compromising your website, applications and databases. Unlike a Denial of Service (DoS) attack in which a computer and Internet connection is used to flood a targeted resource with packets, a DDoS attack uses many computers and Internet connections to yield more devastating results.

What types of DDoS attacks can be mitigated by SNAPI Guard?

SNAPI Guard will protect your website against all types of DDoS attacks, including volumetric network (Layers 3-4) DDoS attacks and Application (Layer 7) DDoS attacks. SNAPI Guard’s' Anti-DDoS solution combines smart signature and behaviour identification algorithms with a global network of high-powered servers.

SNAPI Guard adapts to any existing infrastructure and works with all ISPs. SNAPI Guard’s fully managed Infrastructure Protection service that you can tailor-made to answer your needs.

What is a Web application Firewall (WAF)?

According to the OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project), a Web application firewall (WAF) is an appliance, server plug-in, or filter that applies a set of rules to a HTTP conversation. These rules usually cover common attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injections. A cross-site scripting attack enables the injection of malicious content into the content being delivered from a compromised site considered safe by your server while a SQL injection can destroy a database. By customizing the rules to your application, many types of Web attacks can be successfully identified and blocked.

What types of Web security threats does SNAPI Guard WAF protect against?

SNAPI Guard’s WAF secures your application from any type of application layer hacking attempt such as SQL injection, cross site scripting, illegal resource access and other OWASP Top 10 threats. Advanced client classification technology detects and blocks malicious bots that are often used to apply DDoS attacks, scraping and vulnerability scanning.
