Managing Web Controls

Manage Web Controls through the Webscale Control Panel

Web Controls enable you to use pre-defined and pre-tested security and performance rule sets. Rule sets minimize the need to discover, define, and maintain a large number of individual rules. Instead, you can create rule sets that match individual request or response conditions and execute a set of actions predefined in the Webscale Control Panel. Based on the conditions, Web Controls automatically execute a set of pre-defined actions after all conditions are met. Through Web Controls, you can create complex sequences of actions.

You can also create sequences of these rules that can accomplish much more complex behavior, such as dynamic allowlisting or rate limiting checkout attempts based on user behavior.
