Actions

Automatically detect threats in an input string

Auto-detects a wide range of threat types in input string, including Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), SQL Injection (SQLI), XML External Entitites (XXE), Server-side Request Forgeries (SSRF), and JSON Insecure Deserialization (JID).

Check a URL for Server-side Request Forgery (SSRF) threats

Checks if an input URL is at risk of being an SSRF (Server-side request forgery) threat or attack.

Check if IP address is a Bot client threat

Check if the input IP address is a Bot, robot, or otherwise a non-user entity. Leverages real-time signals to check against known high-probability bots..

Check if IP address is a known threat

Check if the input IP address is a known threat IP address. Checks against known bad IPs, botnets, compromised servers, and other lists of threats.

Check if IP address is a Tor node server

Check if the input IP address is a Tor exit node server. Tor servers are a type of privacy-preserving technology that can hide the original IP address who makes a request.

Check text input for SQL Injection (SQLI) attacks

Detects SQL Injection (SQLI) attacks from text input.

Detect Insecure Deserialization JSON (JID) attacks in a string

Detects Insecure Deserialization JSON (JID) attacks from text input.

Protect text input from Cross-Site-Scripting (XSS) attacks through normalization

Detects and removes XSS (Cross-Site-Scripting) attacks from text input through normalization. Returns the normalized result, as well as information on whether the original input contained an XSS risk.

Protect text input from XML External Entity (XXE) attacks

Detects XXE (XML External Entity) attacks from XML text input.

Automatically detect threats in an input string

Auto-detects a wide range of threat types in input string, including Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), SQL Injection (SQLI), XML External Entitites (XXE), Server-side Request Forgeries (SSRF), and JSON Insecure Deserialization (JID).
