Announcing NGINX Support

1 minute

Curiefense v1.4.0 is now available. This is a milestone release; along with a number of updates and additions, Curiefense is now integrated with NGINX.

NGINX is the world’s most popular web server, and it has other uses as well. Now users can add built-in web security and traffic filtering to their environments.

Curiefense is the first fully integrated, all-encompassing web security solution in NGINX. Key highlights of this release include:

  • An all-in-one web security suite that includes WAF, L7 DDoS mitigation, bot management, session flow control, rate limiting, API protection, and more.
  • Free for all users, with no additional add-ons or subscriptions required.
  • All processing is performed within the user’s perimeter. (Most solutions decrypt and filter traffic on external infrastructure, which adds latency and creates potential compromises in data privacy. Curiefense is hosted within the user’s environment.)
  • Open source availability and extensibility, as opposed to a closed source/black-box solution.
  • GitOps and developer-friendly platform, drivable by both web console UI and REST API.
  • Full traffic visibility and real-time metrics, with open and extensible dashboards and traffic logs.

Reblaze launched Curiefense last November, on Marie Curie’s birthday. The GA release occurred in March, and offered support for Envoy Proxy, including containerized deployments such as Kubernetes and service meshes such as Istio.

Now with Curiefense version 1.4, NGINX–which is used by more than 400 million sites–is also fully supported. Users can now make Curiefense’s comprehensive suite of security technologies an inherent part of their environments, blocking hostile traffic while maintaining high performance and complete privacy.
