Kona Site Defender (KSD) is a security product used to protect web and mobile applications from various cyber threats, including but not limited to DDoS attacks, SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and other web application vulnerabilities.
It works like a shield at Akamai Edge servers protecting internet traffic that comes from end users (and attackers). Malicious traffic is blocked and only the valid requests are allowed to reach the origin server(s).
