How Do I Integrate with Alert Logic’s WSM Premier?

As a reverse proxy, Distil relays requests to your datacenter from Distil IP addresses. By default, Distil passes the requesting client IP back to your servers in the X-Forwarded-For and X-Real-IP headers.

As long as WSM Premier, Alert Logic’s web application firewall (WAF) product, is configured to read the original client IP from a layer 7 header (e.g., X-Forwarded-For), it will keep working as expected (i.e., handle the request without interference from Distil). Additionally, WSM Premier will only extract a client source IP from the X-Forwarded-For header from those IP addresses that have been designated as Trusted Proxies for security reasons.

For more information on integrating Alert Logic WSM Premier with Distil, refer to Alert Logic’s knowledge base article.
