Bot based cyber threats might not be the first thing you think about as a streetwear brand. But...
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 centralised API. Unfortunately vulnerable APIs attract bad hackers and other cyber criminals.
With Variti, you can protect your APIs by preventing all automated cyber threats.

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.
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.

Active Bot Protection
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.
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.
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
- fake account creation
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.
