Why ThreatX Might Be a Fit for Your Organization

Prospects often come to us frustrated with how disjointed their WAF, API, and bot protection solutions are in large platforms like Akamai. Getting a clear picture of all of the threats at the edge and at runtime requires multiple product licenses and more infrastructure to manage. ThreatX offers a simpler and more practical approach.

ThreatX customers often value best-of-breed protection, simple management and deployment, along with the partnership they form with our Protection-as-a-Service team as an extension of theirs. Our platform is cloud-native and easily protects APIs and apps across any mix of cloud infrastructure.

Why Prospects Choose ThreatX Over Akamai

Detect and Block Advanced Threats, Automatically

Stay ahead of cyber threats by tracking behavior and blocking based on risk

Discover, detect, track, and block attackers, all with a single solution.

Attackers are always switching up their methods and tactics. With solutions that are signature-based or that rely on static rulesets, this quickly devolves into a never-ending game of cat and mouse. Your team ends up wasting valuable cycles on menial tasks that aren’t making you safer.

ThreatX is always monitoring, assessing, and correlating attacker behavior to quickly and accurately identify threats. Continuously tracking attackers over time, ThreatX provides a complete view of the evolving threats targeting your APIs and applications and blocks them automatically based on risk, reducing false positives and alert fatigue.

Runtime API & App Protection

Defend the cloud workloads powering your applications

As organizations transition apps and workloads to the cloud, often across multi-cloud environments, attackers seek new ways to access sensitive data. With ThreatX Runtime API and Application Protection (RAAP), organizations can greatly extend protections beyond the edge and address a myriad of risks to runtime environments.

Get protection against runtime threats including malware, web shells, remote access software, code injections and modifications, insider threats, and malicious rootkits. Powered by extended Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF) technology, ThreatX RAAP delivers visibility into all network flows, system calls, and processes. The ThreatX RAAP runtime sensor supports advanced data collection, profiling, and analytics to identify attacks and take appropriate action.

Consolidated Protection from the Edge to Runtime

Secure APIs and apps from bots, runtime threats, and sophisticated attacks within one easy-to-use platform

Unlike other solutions, ThreatX is a fully integrated API and application protection platform blocking a broad range of threats including botnets, DDoS attacks, multi-vector attacks, zero days, east/west threats and more.

ThreatX Edge protection enables your team to automatically to discover your APIs; detect and track threats; and block attacks in real-time – or alert security, if that’s your preference.​

However, threats to APIs and apps extend well beyond the edge. That’s why ThreatX Runtime protection provides coverage for zero day vulnerabilities, rootkits, east-west traffic, and other OS level exploits​.
