API security

Detect and mitigate Layer 7 attacks to protect your applications and business functions they support.
API protection you can rely on
The rapid evolution of mobile internet and the growing number of smartphones influenced many businesses to develop and support mobile applications to let their users access services from anywhere.
Most mobile applications use a client-server architecture where the application is installed on the user's device, and the service content is delivered via a centralized API. Unfortunately vulnerable APIs attract bad hackers and other cyber criminals.
With Variti, you can protect your APIs by preventing all automated cyber threats.
Keep it good
More than 80% of organisations experience cyber attacks against their APIs. Protect your APIs without disturbing the business by filtering and blocking the bad bots only.
Automate
Have the incidents filtered automatically and thus free up your time, reduce costs and increase the overall quality of your security.
Have data clarity
See exactly where the traffic is coming from and what it consists of. Make smart business decisions based on real, clean metrics.

How does it work?
At Variti, we use our Active Bot Protection technology to protect API endpoints. Active Bot Protection filters and stops all API requests made by malicious bots without compromising genuine users.
— Head of Technology, Variti
Active Bot Protection technology leverages a set of highly optimised algorithms for every single request to identify bot or emulator signatures and classify all the online enquiries across the entire customer journey. The method includes statistics, tech data and behaviour analysis to accurately distinguish bots from humans.

Some of the ways our existing customers use

Active Bot Protection

Web scraping prevention
Account Takeover (ATO) protection
Sneaker / ticketing bot protection
All other cyber fraud prevention
Web scraping, also known as screen scraping, web data extraction and web harvesting, is a technique employed to extract large amounts of data from websites. This can lead to theft of intellectual property or unfair competitive edge - both can cause a business to suffer severe financial losses.

We have seen examples where businesses notice a huge influx in website traffic just to realise that up to 40% (in some cases as high as 93%) of this traffic consists of content or price scraping bots.

With Variti, you can ensure that all unauthorised activity on your website is blocked, therefore keeping information such as product descriptions, betting odds, news content and prices safe.
Account takeover / account compromise is when access to a genuine customer’s account is granted to an unauthorised party. Any online account can be taken over by fraudsters: e-commerce accounts, user profiles, subscriptions, bank accounts, emails and so on.

This sort of fraud is very serious and can have a detrimental effect on the business as data privacy laws get broken and the brand gets a bad reputation.

At Variti, we are experienced in working with various types of organisations and keeping their business and customer data safe, including ecommerce stores and banks where data privacy and security has to be extremely high.
Sneaker and ticketing bots are used to buy items and autocomplete the check out process on e-commerce websites.

This can particularly become an issue for limited stock items, luxury goods and special offers.

For example, we see up to 75% of limited stock purchases from luxury fashion brands being made by bots, leaving genuine users unable to get their hands on the desired items. This creates unrest and dissatisfaction amongst potential customers which has long term implications on the business overall.

At Variti, we block sneaker and ticketing bots, allowing only human interaction within your online shops. This not only improves your e-commerce website and customer satisfaction but also raises the brand's credibility and trust.
Whilst we have given a few specific examples, there are many more types of cyber fraud that we protect against, including OWASP’s automated threats.

Some of the additional cyber attack types we protect businesses from are:
  • marketing fraud, ad fraud and click fraud
  • brute force attacks
  • credential stuffing and cleansing
  • API abuse
  • spam
  • fake account creation
  • DDoS
If you have any other specific fraud types or issues in mind but don't see them listed, drop us a line and we will help where we can.
