Bot Defense for API & Mobile Apps

July 25, 2017
This video explores Distil Networks' two latest protection products: Bot Defense for API and Bot Defense for Mobile Apps. Until now, Distil Networks has defended web servers through our Bot Defense for Web product. While this approach fully protected any APIs embedded within a web site, we weren't protecting the API server itself. Therefore, bots were able bypass the web page and go straight for the API server. Now, Bot Defense for API protects the API server, using the same Hi-Def Fingerprint applied and tracked in the original Bot Defense for Web product. In the case of an API, the Hi-Def Fingerprint is used as a token, and visitors are unable to access API servers without this valid token. Additionally, the same API servers could be feeding the mobile apps through an API that are accessed through mobile devices. So if a bot is masquerading as a mobile application on a mobile device, we now have Bot Defense for Mobile Apps. Using the Distil SDK, which is embedded directly in your mobile app, Distil generates a unique token to grant or deny access to your API servers. This is a full, comprehensive protection solution that covers web, API, and mobile apps. For more information on Distil Networks, visit www.distilnetworks.com
