BitNinja Reviews & Product Details

BitNinja Overview

What is BitNinja?

BitNinja is an easy-to-use server security tool, which can be installed on your server within a couple of minutes and requires virtually no maintenance. It is a mixture of an on-premise and cloudbased solution. It is an agent which sits on your infrastructure and sends the attack information to the central server which is in the cloud. We have a new technology called defence network, which means that every BitNinja protected server learns from each attack and shares the learned information with the central server and with all the other BitNinja enabled servers, so the shield just gets stronger and stronger with every single attack.

What do you like best?

I have start to use this service 5 days ago when I realized that the situation of cyber attacks that my server received every day was going out of the control.

So I have desided to try BitNinja for fix this bad situation.

Before use this service, I recived on websites of my customers about 200 spam comments every day. about 1000 attempts of login every day. So this situation became every day more worse.

Now with BitNinja I recive not more of 3 or 4 spam comments per day, for now 0 (this is a fantastic result) attempts of login to wordpress or other types of customers' websites.

This service protect my server, and I have had mode to see this from logs files, against brute force attacks, ssh attacks, port scanning and more other events.

With bitninja I continue to use my external firewall, one internal network firewall and fail2ban for keep my security level always elevate.

One big difference from this service and the other ones that I have tried is that this service don't use a lot of resources, keep the server always speed.

It is very simple to monitor all situation in a unified dashboard. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

For now I have noted that for the first 3 or 4 hours the server became very slow and bitninja used a lot of resources (expecially hard drive and CPU) for scan all server informations and all logs content. This event is well explain on their documentation.

But when this time is past the server return to normal function state Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have resolve DDOS attacks, login attempts, port scanning, brute force and spam comments and emails. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

They made very good software. We have been using BitNinja for several months and we are very satisfied. We tested for a long time before making the software available on production servers. The tests were successful, so we implemented the software on all production servers. Average server load dropped by 15 - 20% and it is more regular without peaks. We have noticed a significant reduction in the amount of spam on our servers, and the problem of website infections has been reduced from 10 per week to 2-3 per month.
