Type of solutionSoftware


Most companies today have deployed web application firewalls (WAFs) to protect web application assets, yet historically, legacy WAFs have been a burden on security teams because of their inaccurate results, cumbersome maintenance, and inability to protect against multi-faceted attacks. To address these challenges, ThreatX’s Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) Platform makes the world safer by protecting web applications and APIs from all threats, including DDoS attempts, bot attacks, exploitations of known vulnerabilities, and zero-day attacks. Its multi-layered detection capabilities accurately identify malicious actors and dynamically initiate appropriate action.

ThreatX is a single, cloud-native platform that delivers the typical functionality of WAFs, plus API protection, bot management, and Layer 7 DDoS mitigation. This comprehensive coverage means that its customers can increase security while decreasing complexity and overhead. ThreatX’s methodology is unique in the industry and is organized around a centralized, cloud-based, real-time risk engine that identifies and correlates attackers’ behavior across multiple attack vectors to more precisely identify threats and then apply right-time protection to enable broad-spectrum attack coverage.

As part of ThreatX’s continuous analysis, the solution accumulates and tracks risks that would otherwise go unnoticed, building dynamic profiles of threat actors as they carry out their attacks. This enables customers to respond to attackers’ patterns over time, as the attack morphs, ebbs and flows, and adjusts to the motions of security defenses. Analysts and threat hunters can investigate suspicious behavior and track devices for further analysis via the ThreatX WAAP.

Unlike other solutions on the market, ThreatX is the only SaaS-based WAAP solution that enables enterprises to confidently secure all their web applications against rapidly evolving threat landscapes. ThreatX delivers complete visibility, and the most precise threat detection and neutralization capabilities available, by combining progressive behavior profiling, collective threat intelligence, and deep analytics with a managed service.

How we are different

1) ThreatX Web Application and API Protection Platform catches threats that would be missed by legacy web application firewalls and can give insight into a wide range of attacker behaviors on the protected site. This results in far fewer false positives and detections that automatically adapt to changes in applications and an expanding threat landscape.

2) Across the industry, it is difficult to find and keep personnel with AppSec expertise. With 24/7 surveillance, ThreatX can help bridge that gap. One of the company’s key differentiators, and advantages, is its team of experts ready to help at every level, from deployment, to management, to ongoing optimization.

3) With cloud-native, container-based deployment options, ThreatX allows customers to protect ALL web, cloud, and legacy applications quickly, including ancillary websites, which often become easy targets but are not always considered in less comprehensive solutions.
