Stable and reliable against DoS and DDoS attacks


What is our primary use case?

We are using NGINX to provide a reverse proxy in an environment of web services.

The product is free, reliable, and safe. 

When I worked in a security research center, we tested NGINX to support DoS and DDoS attacks, and its results were great.

What is most valuable?

It is reliable.

What needs improvement?

I would like it to have a more user-friendly graphical interface.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues yet.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues yet.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We used Microsoft ForeFront and changed because it was not stable during DDoS attacks.

How was the initial setup?

It was a simple setup.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

NGINX is a free tool in Brazil. There are some companies which do support it. The price is the cost to contract support with a specialized company, usually during consulting hours.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No.

What other advice do I have?

I have been using it for eight years.
