2. What is BitNinja?¶
BitNinja is an easy-to-use, security-as-a-service modular and multi-layered server security defense tool. It protects your server from hackers, botnets, attackers, and malicious activities with minimal effort and maintenance required from your side.
BitNinja’s modular security approach, means that each module is designed to prevent, identify and mitigate different types of attacks (or intrusions) in order to keep your servers Safe. Once the BitNinja agent is installed on the workload you wish to protect, BitNinja will actively monitor your incoming and outgoing network traffic, and defend your Servers against already known attacking IPs found in their large IP Reputation pool containing millions of these addresses, and badly behaving new ones.
The BitNinja agent also has a Malware Scanner module for detecting already existing infected files on the installed server. BitNinja is also equipped with a WAF module for stopping incoming attacks directed at known vulnerabilities in Web Applications, for example, SQL injections, remote and local file inclusions and other attacks.
These are just a few of the modules that BitNinja uses to defend your servers against hackers. You can find all of their available modules listed on their documentation page here: https://docs.bitninja.io/docs/modules/sqlcleaning/.
