Illegal Download Protection

Illegal Download Protection

junho 1, 2023 | NSFOCUS

When a client downloads a file from a server, NSFOCUS WAF performs protection based on the file type, file size or MIME type. If the download file matches an illegal download restriction policy, NSFOCUS WAF allows or blocks the download based on the corresponding action specified in the policy, and logs the event. On the Illegal Download Restriction page, customers can create, edit, delete, and duplicate illegal file download restriction policies.
