ThreatX mTLS Support

ThreatX now supports mTLS authentications and Tenant configuration.

API Catalog Sensitive Data 

ThreatX expands its platform offering with the release of a Sensitive Data enhancement to the API catalog 2.0. The new feature, unveiled at the Black Hat Conference 2023, extends the ThreatX platform into the protection of sensitive information.

The ThreatX Sensitive Data feature enhances the API Catalog by flagging and preventing exposure of sensitive identification information, such as passwords, credit card numbers, social security numbers, Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs), and next generation passports. The feature reports only sensitive data that is in plain text, not partial or obfuscated data, such as ***-**-1234, and it does not store sensitive data due to security and compliance reasons.

Release Date: April 26th, 2023 

Botnet Console and API Catalog 2.0 

ThreatX has expanded its platform offering with the release of a new Botnet Console and API catalog 2.0. These new dashboards, unveiled at RSA Conference 2023, will help security teams rapidly investigate automated threats and attempts to abuse APIs with enhanced metrics, analytics, and visualizations. 

The Botnet Console provides security teams with a powerful view for monitoring botnets and other forms of malicious, automated traffic. With its enhanced visibility, security teams can quickly identify and respond to changing automated threats before APIs and applications are affected or breached. Given the increasing use of bots to carry out volumetric attacks, such as credential stuffing, account takeover, and DDoS, the fully integrated Botnet Console is a necessity for maintaining a strong security posture in today’s threat landscape. 

The API catalog 2.0 offers security teams a comprehensive solution for managing APIs and investigating attackers targeting them. With its redesigned dashboard and advanced analytics, ThreatX’s API catalog 2.0 empowers security teams to investigate threats with the confidence of knowing that real-time, risk-based blocking has already thwarted attackers.
