Stop Attacks From Commiting Fraud With Bot/Fake Accounts
Netacea’s advanced machine learning identifies and stops fake account creation and fraudulent accounts from compromising your site and customers.
Sophisticated Machine Learning & Behavioural Analysis
Netacea is powered by our enterprise scale machine learning and behavioural analysis engines to determine and learn from the real human visitors to identify the malicious automated bot traffic.
Fake Account Creation Detection
Fake accounts can lead to fraudulent losses and diminished trust within your user base which can be damaging to your business’ bottom line and brand reputation. Utilising Netacea’s solution for fake account creation ensures that you’re alerted to any suspicious activity as it happens.
Intuitive Behaviour-Based Technology
Static rule and threshold-based technologies can be time-consuming to maintain and keep updated. Using our behavioural based mitigation polices negates this as Netacea looks specifically at all the visitors to your site detecting behaviour that deviates from normal for your site can be elegantly and quickly taken care of, automatically and with no need for human intervention.
Flexible Integration Options
Netacea is a cloud-hosted service and can be implemented in different ways depending on your architecture and requirement. Options include reverse proxy, pre-configured CDN integrations and customisable API integration to your network via WAF, SIEM, etc
The cloud infrastructure is highly available and distributed with complete failover protection. It has maintained 100% availability since inception in 2014 and has been load-tested to over 1 million concurrent users per instance with no performance degradation.
How it works
With bots and automated traffic growing in sophistication, a smarter approach is required.
Netacea uses a unique approach to identify and mitigate fake account creation, account takeover and other fraudulent activity. The core of which is our machine learning and behavioural analysis engines.
Netacea learns from your visitors and the behaviour they exhibit, highlighting anomalous behaviours that doesn’t fit your sites behavioural profile. Behavioural analysis is then enriched with industry-leading threat intelligence to check the digital provenance of the visitor’s request.
Netacea’s engine then categorises suspicious visitors by type and attributes a risk score based on the threat to your site.
Our collective intelligence & behavioural policies can be used to mitigate suspicious traffic, giving the ability to enforce RE CAPTCHA, blackhole or hard block. For threats that are profiled but no mitigation has been defined, our customer feedback loop is used to add this rule back into the system.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why can’t Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) detect and block sophisticated bots?
WAFs are effective tools as part of any secure web-based system, however WAFs are designed to look for and prevent requests that are targeted at exploiting security weaknesses. New and sophisticated bot attacks often look like legitimate human requests, which can often pass through a WAF unchallenged. Because of this, the multitude of security challenges caused by sophisticated Bot traffic require deeper analysis; making it necessary to look at the nature and patterns of requests that are being made and compare those to that being made by human users.
Why is IP address blocking an ineffective approach?
One way of dealing with bot traffic is by simply creating a blacklist of IP addresses however, it is a very limited solution and suffers from several key issues:• A reactive approach – A blacklist is created from known threats or retrospectively & only contains details of past attack IPs whereas automated threats will regularly rotate IP addresses and avoid any hard blocks on the IPs used previously• Blacklists require constant maintenance to ensure that new threats are added to the list as they are discovered and historically identified threats need to be revalidated periodically to ensure the authenticity of each entry.
Will your solution impact website performance?
At Netacea, we understand that your user experience and site performance are key when creating and maintaining web applications and our solution is no different. Our solution has been designed with performance in mind and with a number of implementation options that customers can choose from, we ensure there is minimal to no impact on the protected site’s performance.• In-line ultra-low latency reverse proxy - latency added is typically 1-3 milliseconds• Out of line zero latency integrations – CDN based integrations or API based architecture
How quick and easy is it to implement?
Our solution is entirely cloud-based and we require no on-premise equipment in order for our solution to begin working. Customers can utilise our solution in one of three ways, through our reverse proxy, via an integration with a CDN or by using our API architecture. Regardless of the implementation choice, we’re able to implement our customer’s chosen architecture within hours (however typically we do ask for around one week to allow for testing and tuning the implementation) and are on hand to assist our customers every step of the way.
What flexible integration options do you offer?
Our adaptive data model and micro-services API approach gives huge power and flexibility to ensure that even the most complex of visitor requirements can be elegantly and reliable handled at volume, using the existing infrastructure that enterprise customers already maintain and own. Using our rich set of API, you can send the threat alerts to your WAF, CDN provider, or firewall of choice.
