Everyone loves having ultimate power at their fingertips – the ability to buy concert tickets, make reservations, or view banking transactions is available with the touch of a finger. The innovation and proliferation of mobile apps make this possible.
Predictably, this great power comes with great responsibility. The 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) highlights the growing trend of hackers targeting mobile. Bad actors commonly use bots as part of large-scale hacking campaigns, with mobile applications now a target.
Imagine if you could add bot protection for mobile apps with a simple touch of a finger. F5 Networks has done exactly that with the release of the F5 Anti-Bot Mobile SDK, extending the robust bot protection capabilities of F5's Web Application Firewall (WAF) solutions to mobile applications to defend against bots, vulnerability scanners, content scraping, and other automated attack vectors by safely whitelisting sessions coming from the protected mobile app.
What about resourceful attackers? You know, the same ones that grew up disassembling video consoles and going into cheat mode on their Sega Genesis? Applications fused through the F5 Anti-Bot Mobile SDK are hardened with code obfuscation technology to protect against sophisticated hackers that attempt to reverse engineer SDK and/or app code, while being fully supported across vendor and company app stores.
The F5 Anti-Bot Mobile SDK is available today. For more information, check out the solution overview.
