Elastic Beam API Behavioral Security (ABS) applies AI techniques to API transactions for accurate attack detection, and insightful forensic and compliance reporting. ABS requires no rules, policies, or attack signatures to identify advanced attacks on data, applications, and control systems via APIs.
ABS blocks cyberattacks including multiple types of API DDoS attacks, login system attacks, data exfiltration, and other API-specific data and system attacks — including attacks from insiders or hackers. To block attackers, ABS works with Elastic Beam API Security Enforcers and other systems (e.g. load balancers, API Gateways) to terminate connections and block future access.
Developed to provide the industry’s most advanced API attack mitigation, ABS continuously refines its comprehensive AI behavioral model for each API and uses it to detect malicious activity. Unlike generic behavioral analytics tools that don’t take into account API-specific usage, ABS leverages its in-depth API intelligence to provide the industry’s most precise and accurate detection of API misuse.
Elastic Beam ABS is deployed at large scale in multi-cloud environments with Elastic Clustering. It supports rapid expansion on-demand to address increased capacity needs and adapts automatically to changing environments.
ABS is delivered as software which can be deployed on bare metal, virtualized, or in Docker container environments — on-premise or in hybrid clouds — to detect attacks in API traffic.
