In this article, we'll explain the Security Settings made available when activating your CDN or CDN Plus package.


Rather than selecting each of the settings manually, you can apply one of the preset profiles.

Setting Explanation
Security Profile Select Off, Low, Medium, High or DDoS Attack. The parameters described below change depending on the selected profile.
Basic Security Level This level adjusts based on the profile selected.
Session TTL This sets the time available to users to access your website after a security measure, e.g. captcha input, has been completed.
Email Address Obfuscation Hide email addresses from search engine crawlers to prevent spam. The email addresses remain visible to regular visitors to your website.
Server Side Excludes (SSE) Hide sensitive content from visitors that the system deems threatening.
Browser Integrity Check A browser integrity check is performed by evaluating the HTTP threat signature headers. If a threat signature is found, the request is rejected.
Hotlink Protection This prevents operators of other websites from linking directly to images or files on your website.
