The Website Protector Responses
The Website Protector responds in one of three different ways. Each response is always logged so that you can review how The Website Protector is functioning for you.
The first and most common response is to have your website display everything normally, because no threat is present. This response also occurs if you customize The Website Protector to take no action but simply watch and report. Whenever this response occurs, your website will appear to your visitor as it always has. They will never know what happened behind the scenes.
The second response is to filter out the threat from a web visitor and display everything else normally. This response occurs whenever a website threat is identified that can safely be defused. Maybe your web visitor made some typos. Whatever the reason, The Website Protector will filter out the dangerous part of their input or interaction while the rest flows through. This is a unique element to The Website Protector that drastically reduces false positives while still keeping your website safe.
The third response, whenever the attack cannot be safely filtered or when the web visitor is a known attacker, is to deny access to your website by providing that web visitor with an error message. The web attacker will be shown your website's '500' internal server error message, indicating that your webpage is currently unavailable. They will get no further information about your website. Importantly, unlike some web security error messages, the cybercriminal will not be shown any revealing information about your website's internal configuration. To everyone else besides this hacker, the webpage will respond normally.
