API Security

Bot Detection

It's time to protect your APIs from bot threats

To generate potential revenue opportunities, organizations are transforming their businesses by making their applications available through APIs. While APIs connect enterprises with mobile apps and a large community of developers, these APIs also need to be reliable and most importantly secure.

As these businesses start monetizing their resources through digital channels, they need to become more vigilant about security and prevent their APIs against threats and hacks.

Prevent API scraping

When business content is exposed through APIs, a new class of threats from bots and scrapers arise. Proactively addressing them ensures that your business remains competitive and secure.

Scrapers exploit API vulnerabilities to scrape valuable enterprise content/data from the APIs using malicious bots, and use the content/data for malicious purposes

Scrapers reverse engineer how web and mobile apps interact with their APIs, and hijack API calls to scrape data
