Preventing Wire Fraud
Snapdocs offers a loan closing automation application for the mortgage industry that provides a workflow for buyers, lenders, title and escrow representatives, and notaries.
To prevent fraud, Snapdocs sought to identify malicious actors’ requests and other attack event patterns to prevent account takeovers. Additionally, they wanted faster visibility into attackers’ web requests in order to trigger alerts to stop them.
To enhance the security of their digital toolset for mortgage closing, Snapdocs installed the Signal Sciences NGINX module and enabled blocking mode in production within 48 hours. After doing so, they not only blocked potential attacks but gained significant visibility provided by Power Rules.
Enhancing Control Over Web Application Threats
Sauce Labs provides the world’s largest continuous testing cloud for web and mobile applications.
Sauce Labs needed a single technology to protect its web applications distributed across a hybrid cloud environment with different application stacks.
Sauce Labs immediately gained intelligent blocking of web threats from Signal Sciences and used the visibility to identify unique application abuse, which they thwarted using Power Rules.
