Non-Web Protocols Support

Non-web protocols support refers to the ability to protect non-web protocols (e.g., proprietary gaming protocols) even if the organization does not posess a Class C network. An organization that posesses a Class C network can divert the traffic to the provider using BGP. Otherwise, in most cases it is not possible because many vendors allow only an L7 web-based proxy. An L4 proxy is not supported. This leaves proprietary protocols unsupported and at great risk.

F5 does support this case with its L4 proxy support.

Incapsula also supports this case with its unique IP Protection diversion method.
