Approov is first and foremost an API protection solution for bot mitigation, securing mobile businesses against automated traffic and other attempts to gain unauthorized access to backend services, data and assets. However, while delivering this service Approov also gives valuable insight into the types and state of devices that are communicating with the protected services via the API. For example, do you know the proportion of connections coming from unauthorized software: bots, scripts, or repackaged apps? Do you know if your communications are being intercepted, if the mobile device is rooted/jailbroken, if your app is running in an emulator, if there is a debugger or framework attached, or even if your app is running in a cloned environment? Read on to find out you can get at these nuggets before the end of your free Approov trial.
