What Makes Feroot Different?

Feroot Security believes that customers should be able to interact securely with any company on the web, without risk or compromise.

Feroot Enables Proactive
Client-side Security Programs
to Protect the Customer Journey

Our products are designed to significantly diminish a threat actor’s ability to breach customer data or damage websites via client-side attacks. We help cybersecurity and application security professionals guard the customer experience.

Businesses have done a fantastic job insulating their networks and protecting them from threat actors trying to access mission critical data, steal confidential information, or acquire financial details. Still, not a day goes by that a customer’s data isn’t stolen, shared on the dark web, or used immediately for financial gain. Cybersecurity professionals have mostly been focused on defense and responding to corporate cyberthreats. They are becoming more focused on protecting their customers—the most critical information and data asset they have—from the client-side or front-end perspective.

Businesses come to Feroot Security to enable proactive client-side security programs. Our data protection capabilities take the pain and ambiguity out of front-end security threat analysis, detection, response, and prevention. Our products help organizations uncover supply chain risks and protect their client-side attack surface.

Feroot’s Approach to Secure
the Client-side of Web Applications

We automate client-side security so you can stay ahead of Megacart, e-skimming, XSS attacks, PII exfiltration, and other threats. By staying ahead of these threats you will be able to stay out of regulatory authority crosshairs including GDPR, CCPA, CPRA and PIPEDA.

Client-side security is a beast to manage. At this point in time, most companies cobble together a variety of tools and data sources such as vulnerability intelligence, exploit intelligence, cyber threat Intelligence, vulnerability scanners, application security testing software and more. They then have to scan each web asset individually or write custom scripts in an effort to create some form of client-side security automation. To properly protect your client-side, you have to automate your security operations to detect e-skimming attacks in seconds rather than in weeks or months.

WAFs, CSP, pentesting and vulnerability assessments, and vulnerability scanning are great ways to start a client-side security program, but they have vast limitations. These approaches simply protect the connection between your client-side and your server-side. They do not protect the connections between your web applications, and your customers’ browsers. Which as we know is a growing attack vector for threat actors to exploit.

Feroot Security follows a OSI Layer 7 plus approach. Our technology deploys JavaScript security permissions to detect and prevent client-side threats in the runtime environment. We protect every connection between your web apps and your customers in their runtime sessions. We monitor everything that happens within user browser sessions, outside of your traditional security perimeter, thereby expanding your attack surface visibility and security program coverage. In other words, we grow your security perimeter around the server-side and client-side attack surface, and enumerate the attack surface you haven’t been able to defend.

Feroot Security products offer faster and more effective ways to secure the client-side of your business and protect customer data. When deploying Feroot to manage client-side security, our customers replace time consuming manual processes, custom scripts for security automation, and multiple technologies with one simple automated process in a single user interface.

Operationalizing
Client-side Security

Feroot recognizes that as an industry, we need to focus equally on “who is attacking me” and “who is attacking my customers.”

To date, cybersecurity has been focused on mapping out the attack surface and managing security operations solely from the businesses perspective. Client-side security—that is, protecting customers—has been an afterthought at worst and a tedious task at best.

Feroot built a suite of proprietary technologies, machine learning and artificial intelligence to collect and classify data, so that cybersecurity and application security professionals can take the right action at the right time. In other words, we find sensitive data that has been exposed on the front-end automatically and give you the insights and tools to make sure you can properly secure that data.

Replicating the Customer Journey
to Know the Enemy

Feroot Security replicates actual user journeys. We don’t simply test and scan client-side web-applications and provide insights based on assumptions or ideas. We provide insights and response actions based on actual user behaviors and their experiences. Our focus is on collecting user-intelligence data from websites and web applications, contextualizing that data, and then helping security teams properly act on it.

We watch how threat actors review and research websites as part of their malicious campaign reconnaissance work. Typically, threat actor reconnaissance starts with evaluating a target business’s customer experience. Feroot uses this information to help cybersecurity teams secure their front-end and to make sure their back-end security efforts are maximized.

By blocking would-be threat actors from collecting data and getting to know you from the customer perspective, you can:

  • Limit the scope of their malicious activities.
  • Make them question if breaching your business is worth their time investment.
  • Deter them from continuing to plan out attacks.
  • Preemptively block them from ever trying to break into your server-side security technologies, policies, and procedures.

Mapping the Client-side
Attack Surface

Feroot’s technologies map your security frameworks to your client-side security threats.

We provide you with a comprehensive overview of your client-side attack surface, and via RestfulAPI integrations with security information and event management systems (SIEMs), threat intelligence platforms (TIPs), and other telemetry-gathering technologies, we enable you to generate a full overview of your security posture. We gather client-side threat intelligence and allow you to ingest that data into your security technology stack to have a full perspective of your attack surface, inside and outside of your network, and from internal and external customer perspectives. The main goal of cyber threat intelligence is to make better informed security decisions. Feroot telemetry gets you as close as possible to the threat to decrease your Mean Time to Detect (MTTD), and your Mean Time to Respond (MTTR).
