Protect All Your APIs from Any Threat
ThreatX’s API protection platform gives you instant API protection, for all your APIs, regardless of their status or which gateway they sit behind, no schema required.
The fastest way to discover, catalog, and protect all your API endpoints.
With ThreatX, you get API protection first. Additionally, that protection is delivered via our auto-discovery capabilities, which look at real traffic, don’t require schema, and therefore give you a comprehensive view of your API attack surface.
- Instant API Discovery and Profiling
- Automatic Threat Detection and Protection
- Logic Aware Behavioral Analysis
Protect Your Entire Portfolio of APIs
Automatic API discovery and profiling
Instant API protection, for all your APIs, regardless of their status or which gateway they sit behind, no schema required. You’re protected without any separate discovery, integration, instrumenting of your code base, or talks with your dev teams.
ThreatX’s API protection platform discovers API endpoints by scrutinizing real traffic that hits those APIs. This allows ThreatX to protect APIs your dev team didn’t tell you about (rogue APIs), APIs your dev team should have deprecated two releases ago (zombie APIs), and the usually small subset of APIs your dev team has run through your application security testing program (legitimate APIs).
Ultimately, ThreatX simplifies API security. With our reverse proxy architecture, all API calls flow through the ThreatX WAF Sensor, where they’re analyzed for suspicious behavior, and where traffic is either blocked or cleansed on the way to the endpoint. All the complexity of a modern API architecture is simplified in a way that allows one-stop security configuration.
Protect Against Modern Dynamic Threats
Attacker-centric behavioral analysis that correlates threat activity in real-time
Attackers target APIs in a variety of ways, from login and credential stuffing attacks to DDoS attacks and traditional injection attacks. Instead of identifying these attacks using signatures and rules, ThreatX detection uses a combination of application- centric and attacker-centric, behavior-based methodologies.
Relying on signatures to identify threats used to work – but today, such approaches fall short and assume attackers are not as capable and creative as they are. ThreatX examines the behaviors of an attacker – including varying attack vectors and cadence – to more precisely identify and block threats to your APIs.
This provides a highly automated and accurate way of detecting and mitigating the wide range of attacks that can target APIs, without requiring security teams to maintain complex rulesets, and without false positives blocking critical API functionality.
ThreatX natively decodes and analyzes API traffic such as JSON and XML in order to identify any threats hidden within. This ensures teams can block injection attacks and other threats and exploits in the same way they do on the web front-end.
Never Jeopardize Performance or Uptime
Logic aware to understand the use cases of your unique business.
ThreatX can identify a variety of ways that attackers or bots may try to abuse exposed application or business logic. For example, ThreatX can identify if an entity is hitting password reset functionality without having visited the login page. Likewise the solution can identify a spike in resource-intensive requests or an entity constantly refreshing inventory functionality, which could be a sign of an automated attack.
Entity and Behavior Analytics
ThreatX goes far beyond signatures and anomaly detection to identify and track malicious entities even as traits such as IP addresses and user agents change. This lets us track and compile a complete picture of an entity’s risk so that enforcement is both highly accurate and laser-focused on the threats that matter the most.
ThreatX combines a wide variety of proprietary techniques to reliably identify attacking entities even as they change IP addresses or user agents. This includes but is not limited to TLS fingerprinting and analytical profiling of entity traits and behaviors.
Entity Tracking and Risk Attribution
ThreatX then continuously monitors all entity behaviors and correlates all behaviors over time into a unified risk score. This allows security teams to see coordinated attacks and to identify and stop “low and slow” attacks that would normally fly under the radar.
Entity Actions and Response
ThreatX can actively engage entities to collect additional insights or take a variety of protective responses. This can include putting the entity on a watch list, active interrogation, tarpitting, blocking, any allowlisting or blocklisting.
ThreatX automatically learns normal application behaviors and traits to establish baselines for the application. This can allow staff to identify any anomalous behavior that could be an early sign of attack.
