    Dear all,

    Just would like to know your throughts and experience sharing.
    Will you enable these rules? Or, for this kind of layer3/4 defense, you will leave them to be handled by Firewall & IPS devices?

    Thank you.

    Hello Ken,

    Thank you for the post, usually the Ddos protection would be done on cloud WAF however if you are using on-prem WAF you can protect ddos by configuring policies(through rate limit), below is the reference link,
