Preventing Fake Account Creation: Key CQ botDefense Differentiators

  • ML-based analytics engine delivers complete application visibility: CQ botDefense is based on CQAI, an ML-based analytics engine that operates out-of-band to automatically discover all your web, mobile and API-based account creation endpoints, building an intuitive site map that can be used for visibility and policy-based protection. Alternative solutions that use JavaScript instrumentation and mobile SDK are prone to inject application deployment delays with extended QA/validation processes, security gaps between mobile app variants, and user dissatisfaction with slow page load times.
  • Open platform enables integration with user validation systems: Using more than 150 customizable automation indicators distributed across the Four Pillars of Detection: Credentials, Tools, Infrastructure and Behavior, CQAI passively determines the malicious or benign intent of each account creation transaction. Customizable mitigation policies provide multiple response options including block, rate limit, geo fence, or deception. Using deception allows you to send a custom response to the attacker, effectively putting guardrails around their activities. Alternatively, the REST API can be used to export CQAI findings to external systems for archiving, additional analysis or an alternative response.
  • New account creation apps are automatically protected: As new account creation applications are created and deployed by different teams, they are automatically discovered and protected by CQ botDefense. The result is security that is baked into the application development and deployment workflow.
  • Consistent protection for all account creation endpoints: CQ botDefense protects exposed your web, mobile and API-based account creation endpoints from automated attacks with a single, consistent security policy, resulting in an opportunity to consolidate application security functions into a single platform.
  • Deployable anywhere: A container-based software architecture allows CQ botDefense to be deployed in your data center, the cloud or as a SaaS offering, allowing you to choose the architecture that best fits your application security needs.
