Configuring Intelligent Access Control Rules to Accurately Defend Against CC Attacks

If you enable intelligent access control, WAF uses built-in AI-powered models to analyze traffic to your website, identify CC attacks and abnormal features in HTTP requests on the origin server, and generate specific precise protection and access control rules for your website. In this way, WAF can then automatically protect your website from CC attacks.

The intelligent access control protection is now available for open beta test (OBT). To enable it, submit a service ticket.


You have added your website to a policy.


  • In cloud mode, only the standard, professional, and platinum editions support intelligent access control rules.
