API & Application Protection for Financial Services

Secure the APIs and applications that manage your customers’ sensitive data and financial transactions with confidence – not complexity.

Effectively Block Threats Targeting FinTech, Banking, and other Financial Organizations

Segpay is in the digital payment processing space and, therefore, attracts a fair amount of cyberattacker attention. “We have this target on our back constantly,” said Segpay’s Director of Operations Marco Escobar. “And though the attackers haven’t been able to penetrate our systems, they’re becoming smarter, and more evasive.”

This past fall, Segpay experienced cyberattacks that featured bots inputting a series of different credit card numbers into the system to see if any would get approved. None of the attacks were successful, but Segpay did face thousands of transactions in a short period of time, which obviously required a time- and resource-intense response.

Segpay found that ThreatX’s behavioral threat detection gives them more accuracy and flexibility when bots are carrying out attacks by cycling through multiple IP addresses. ThreatX identifies the behavior as malicious and immediately blocks the attacker without having to block individual IP addresses – which can be both time-consuming and inaccurate.

“ We look at our ThreatX dashboard and pinpoint whether attackers are just getting their feet wet, or really trying to exploit us. It’s a good visual because we can see clearly what to focus on. With other solutions, it was just an immediate block for anything that met a rule. ”

What Our Customers Are Saying

We could see query strings, IP addresses, and details on attacker behavior that we couldn’t get from other solutions, and that helped us mitigate future risks. “

Senior Director of Operations | Segpay

We were spending a lot of weekends, late nights, and holidays managing these attacks. It seemed like these attackers would always take my Christmas Day, my New Year’s Day. I couldn’t sleep at night.”

Information Security Analyst | Global Financial Services Organization

ThreatX has been a game changer for my team and me, and has provided an additional layer of security for our members.”

Director of IT | Large Credit Union

With ThreatX, I’m in the console a lot, but not because I’m trying to troubleshoot and stop threats, I just like going in there and taking screenshots to show all of the blocks. “

Immediately Protect Sensitive Customer Data

Secure your APIs and applications with real-time detection and blocking of complex attacks.

It’s best practice to build APIs and web applications as securely as possible from the start, but that’s not always an option, particularly for the legacy apps and APIs that many financial organizations have relied on for years. Defending your perimeter in depth has become table stakes, but finding the right partner that secures the full spectrum of your layer 7 traffic from nearly any threat is challenging. That’s why ThreatX exists.

We protect our customers from threats like:

  • Credential Stuffing
  • DDoS Attacks
  • OWASP Top 10 Threats
  • API Abuse
  • Botnets
  • Account Takeovers
  • SQL Injection
  • Zero Day Vulnerabilities

Detect and Block Malicious Bots

Comprehensive coverage that scales against large, volumetric botnet attacks

ThreatX provides critical visibility on bot-based attacks by using application profiling, IP interrogation, entity fingerprinting, and risk attribution to establish whether a sophisticated attacker is customizing malicious requests or if a distributed botnet is automating them. This combination of bot detection techniques and application intensity analysis means ThreatX can reveal a wide range of automated attacks such as ATO, credential stuffing, reputation attacks, and more.

Get comprehensive protection against:

  • Brute force attempts
  • TCP attacks
  • HTTP flooding
  • Spoofing
  • Ping of death
  • Smurf
  • Teardrop
  • Zero-day DDoS attacks and more…

Prevent Fraud & Account Takeover Attempts

Risk-based blocking increases confidence that threats are blocked and legitimate users are never locked out

ThreatX goes far beyond signatures and anomaly detection with behavior-based analytics to identify and track malicious entities even as traits such as IP addresses and user agents change. This lets us track a complete picture of an entity’s attack attempts and risk so that enforcement is both highly accurate and laser-focused on what matter the most.

Benefits of this approach include:

  • Fewer false positives
  • Fewer custom rules
  • Less time managing and mitigating rule conflicts
  • Less time spent documenting rulesets
  • Less resource requirements when FTEs change over

Wholistic View of API Attack Surface

Gain insight into your complete API attack surface with ThreatX’s API Catalog

ThreatX provides a comprehensive view of organization’s API attack surface and the threats targeting them. This empowers teams to manage APIs and investigate suspected abuse by leveraging advanced traffic analytics, metrics, and visualizations to track attackers down to specific endpoint transactions.

Benefits include:

  • Visualize sites powered by APIs
  • Visualize API’s endpoint traffic
  • Track API usage vs. malicious traffic
  • Less time understanding API traffic
  • More confidence to block API abuse
