URL Rewriting is the Process of modifying any URL structure while loading a Page. An example of the constructive use of this technique is allowing an Internet user to access a Web site that has a complicated URL by entering a simpler URL into the address bar of a Web browser.
Traffic monitoring mechanism keeps track on the incoming and outgoing traffic in the network. It collects details of traffic, speed and classifications in the network and make a analysis report for traffic managers.
Load balancing ensures that no one server is overburdened, which impact web service performance. The load balancer divides network traffic among several servers, with each server managing network traffic and other servers handling network operations that one of the servers fails completely.
Between web browsers (clients) and web servers, a reverse proxy serves as an intermediary. When a client requests a resource, the proxy server looks for the most current copy of the resource. If available then instantly cached it to the proxy server and sent a response to the user.
A rate limiting indicates the time between each request from each IP address and the number of requests received within a given time zone. If the proxy server receives too many requests from a single IP address in a given time period, the rate limiting approach will reject those requests for a time period.
A reverse proxy can hide the infrastructure of your back-end servers by removing the need for direct internet access to them by intercepting requests. If the reverse proxy detects malicious requests, it blocks them until they hit a web server or places a barrier in the web services.
You can regulate priority access to only authorized users, or you can grant limited access to non-compliant guest users. Only users logged in with your Identity Providers or Federated Identities can be allowed to access your resources.
The Reverse proxy has control over the network, which limits inbound connections to web services with IP-based/location/device based restriction and minimizing unwanted traffic. The access may be granted or denied for a single IP address or a set of IP addresses.
The Secure socket layer is a protocol that ensures the incoming traffic in the network. SSL offloading is a process of removing SSL based encryption from HTTPS requests received by a web server. SSL/TSL offload encrypts and decrypts the communication between clients and servers sending messages securely over the network.
