ThreatX has always been laser focused on web application and API security. The company offers organizations an attacker-centric approach to protect critical infrastructure and ensure that businesses continue to run. Web apps and APIs are often the holy grail for attackers. Adversaries see great value in these assets and exert significant time and creativity to evade rules-based detection techniques. ThreatX goes far beyond the basics of rules by inspecting the specific behaviors of an adversary over time to shield global enterprise clients from a wide variety of threats, including traditional exploits, API-specific risks, bots, and DDoS attacks.

ThreatX’s attacker-centric methodology is unique in the industry. The company’s risk engine enables customers to identify tactics and procedures being deployed and escalation of the kill chain over time; determine whether an attempt (or attack) is legitimate; and secure their web apps and APIs in response. ThreatX analyzes IP reputation, TOR exit node status, geo IP, user agent, TLS fingerprint, and a number of behavioral attributes to identify entities and codify the risk associated with their behavior. The company’s Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) Platform is agile enough to detect, block, and neutralize Layer 7 attacks, OWASP Top 10, bots, DDoS, and zero-day threats with high precision. Such protection allows customers to be incredibly resilient — often stopping attacks before they can get started.

ThreatX backs up its innovative technology with 24×7 access to application security experts, ensuring that web applications and APIs are protected from malicious actors and that customers are optimizing the platform’s efficacy.

In 2021, ThreatX raised $10 million in funding led by .406 Ventures and was named a Visionary in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Web Application and API Protection.

How we are different

ThreatX’s Web Application and API Protection Platform leverages multiple detection techniques to build a dynamic profile of threat actors as they move through the kill chain. Data collected from all clients is aggregated and shared to provide actionable recommendations to stop ongoing attacks and prevent future ones.
ThreatX’s methodology is unique in the industry, as it is organized around a centralized, cloud-based, and real-time risk engine that aggregates suspicious behaviors from threat actors and applies real-time protection to enable broad-spectrum attack coverage. All components of ThreatX’s platform share and act upon the same data, enabling organizations to gain a unified and comprehensive view of current attacker activity and the risks posed to organizations’ applications in a short period of time.

ThreatX’s unique capabilities have enabled it to secure $10 million in funding and have led to its recognition as a Visionary in Gartner’s 2021 Magic Quadrant™ for Web Application and API Protection.
