What is a Reverse Proxy?
A Reverse Proxy is a server that sits in front of one or main origin servers. The reverse proxy server intercepts all the traffic received from the client. The reverse proxy server will then send the requests and receive responses from the origin servers. This way a reverse proxy server ensures that no user can see the backend server communications and server layouts to potentially attack them. This way you can keep the backend light and let the reverse proxy handle all the security protocols on behalf. This way no client can directly communicate with the origin servers and potentially find information about server architecture.
In some situations, organizations would love to monitor the requests your server gets hit with daily. Website traffic monitoring is primarily done to keep a record of website performance, stability, and overall user experience. The key objective is to evaluate the website's performance from the end-users' standpoint. This could help the organization in many ways.
Some companies build their own reverse proxies, but this requires intensive software and hardware engineering resources, as well as a significant investment in physical hardware.
