Your web, mobile and API-based applications are increasingly targeted by bad actors who use a rich repository of resources from the dark web to programmatically attack the business logic of your public facing applications with malicious transactions that appear to be legitimate, or syntactically correct. These attacks manifest themselves in the following abusive ways: account takeover (also referred to as credential stuffing), fake account creation, content scraping, denial of inventory, denial of wallet, gift card theft and loyalty program fraud. The impact to your business can be seen in the following ways:
- Revenue loses directly attributed to fraud, theft and the process of addressing it.
- Decline in user-base from reputation bombing, loss of trust and poor user experience.
- Increased infrastructure costs to address the high volume of illegitimate traffic.
- Degradation of user experience, application performance and availability.
Traditional network level protections, such as Web Application Firewalls , CDNs, and 1st generation bot mitigation tools, have proven to be largely ineffective and are hard to manage, injecting friction into the application development lifecycle and often impacting user experience.
