The preconception we always run into is that Geo Location filtering is more cumbersome than its worth. If you would have told me 5 years ago “You should block countries“, I would be the first one to push back. It was such a nightmare if you turned off a country given the global makeup of business. We had to rip out the pages and start new when building PacketViper, and knew the fight would be more the preconceive thinking of country blocking.
PacketViper solved the problem of filtering countries by allowing customers to drop or allow specific ports. This started new security layer called the Geo IP filtering layer. Piling on features such as per port Global Network Lists, Custom rules, Triggers, and alerts which can be assigned to countries, and Global Network Lists. This created a new layer of defense that improved current environments with out having to rip or replace the existing security environment.
Here’s a video I created that shows how PacketViper helps.
