There are several different ways to implement automated IP blocking. One popular method is to use a web application firewall (WAF). A WAF can be configured to automatically block traffic from IP addresses that exhibit suspicious or malicious activity. Another popular method is to use a content delivery network (CDN). A CDN can be configured to automatically block traffic from IP addresses that exhibit suspicious or malicious activity.
Automated IP blocking is a robust website security measure, but it is not a perfect solution. There are several potential drawbacks to using automated IP blocking. First, if an attacker knows the IP address of your website, they can change their IP address to bypass the automated IP blocking. Second, automated IP blocking can inadvertently block legitimate traffic from search engines. Finally, automated IP blocking can make diagnosing and debugging website issues more challenging.
Considering implementing automated IP blocking on your website, it is essential to weigh the pros and cons carefully. Automated IP blocking can be a valuable website security measure, but it is unsuitable for every website.
