APIs are the glue underpinning the modern digital economy. That’s why it’s so crucial to keep them safe from attacks. APIs are constantly targeted by fraudsters, who deploy bots that are designed to appear like legitimate users seeking access to a website. Arkose Labs uses a layered approach to protect APIs from these sophisticated attacks that aim to emulate remote clients and impersonate true users.
To do this, our customers embed an Arkose Labs token into the web application or mobile SDK layer which verifies that each individual request has passed from server to client. All traffic is monitored for known patterns of abuse using data from across our vast network, using behavioral fingerprints, velocity and rate monitoring, and a proprietary user IP database.
