Built-in security responses

Security responses help you automate scenarios faster. When installing one of our libraries, you immediately benefit from the following responses:

  1. Block an IP address or a user account temporarily or permanently.
  2. Redirect the request to a pre-defined URL.
  3. POST the context to a webhook URL on trigger. Learn more about the payload.
