Attackers reverse engineer mobile and web applications to hijack API calls, and program bots to invade your business APIs. They target APIs to take over accounts, scrape business-critical data, and also perform application distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. Bots deluge the API server with unwanted requests. It’s essential to accurately distinguish between good API calls and Bad API calls for online businesses. ShieldSquare processes about a trillion API calls every year, the intelligence gathered from processing such a vast number of requests helps us differentiate good API calls from sophisticated bad API calls and block malicious requests.

Safeguard APIs Against Malicious Requests, Account Takeover, Scraping, and DDoS

Real-time Protection Against API Vulnerabilities

  • APIs are increasingly used to exchange data or to integrate with partners. ShieldSquare protects business-critical APIs against scraping, and application DDoS attacks, and ensures secure access of data.
  • Blocks attempts to bypass device profiling, and direct API access to perform account takeover attacks.
  • Reduces total API calls and unexpected surge in third-party API usage by filtering unauthorized requests.
  • Filters request from headless browsers (e.g., Phantom Js) and browser automation tools (e.g., Selenium), and block browser-not-present requests.

Advanced Mitigation Technology To Prevent API Abuse

  • Detects and filters unwanted traffic including requests from automation scripts. Analyzes each and every API request including metadata to identify anomalous behavior patterns and performs intent analysis to understand the actual intent behind an API request to filter bad API calls.
  • Advanced browser and mobile integrity checks and fingerprinting can identify automation, emulators and attempts to reverse engineer the mobile SDKs. ShieldSquare provides rate limiting based on multiple parameters to prevent token cycling and token distribution.
  • Verifies traffic to the API server as well as mobile app server to ensure that only genuine users have access to your APIs.

Seamless Deployment

  • Deploy ShieldSquare as stand-alone protection for your APIs. You can also integrate with your existing security infrastructure and API management solution to ensure overall API security.
  • ShieldSquare bot mitigation for APIs doesn’t require traffic redirection and can be seamlessly embedded into existing infrastructure using SDKs and web server plugins.
