V2 BETA – Initial Performance Metrics

Data Portcullis already performs with incredible speed and efficiency – but the version currently in Beta Testing at our labs will simply blow you away.

We noticed that some Websites / Webservers may not need to operate Data Portcullis in real time to decide whether to reject an incoming connection – a connection may be rejected after a minute or two.

For example  – if an attacker is attempting to book a flight, a hotel room or a concert ticket on your Server, this is an “end to end process” that will take a few minutes to conduct so the attacker can be rejected at any point during the end to end process, rather than upon their first connection to your Landing Page.

Data Portcullis Beta Version 2.0 introduces an optional ‘Latency Flag’ for those Websites / Webservers who can wait a few minutes to reject their attacker.  Initial testing indicates that by introducing a slight latency of between 1 and 3 minutes on the final accept/reject decision increases connection throughput handling rates by tenfold.

2000 Connections Per Second!

The below diagram is a server monitoring snapshot of a ten minute run, showing that the average number of requests being handled is 2000 per second, or 125,000 per minute.
