Integrating TrafficDefender with Amazon CloudFront

TrafficDefender’s virtual waiting room offers a simple integration with your existing CloudFront platform. Our reverse proxy is a cloud-hosted, DNS level implementation that sits behind your CloudFront platform to manage all incoming traffic.

TrafficDefender’s reverse proxy approach has the following benefits:

  • Fast integration with your existing Amazon CloudFront CDN with no coding or architecture modifications required
  • Ultra-low latency in the cloud, with proven performance supporting huge campaigns with some of the world’s busiest sites
  • Architected to stop queue-jumpers from day one
  • HTTPS encryption for PCI and GDPR compliance of all traffic

How it works

The virtual waiting room solution’s reverse proxy can be activated on you site simply by setting TrafficDefender as the origin server in your Amazon CloudFront configuration, without need for changes to code or architecture. TrafficDefender can also be positioned in front of CloudFront if necessary.

All requests pass through to your site as encrypted HTTPS traffic, but are not stored, thus the solution is PCI and GDPR compliant.

By utilising a single redirection, TrafficDefender covers every aspect of your web infrastructure. TrafficDefender has boasted 100% availability from day one thanks to its a highly available, distributed cloud infrastructure with complete fail over protection.

One configured, the virtual waiting room can be instantly added to or removed from your website via passive mode within the TrafficDefender portal.
