ArecaBay Force Field - How it works
ArecaBay Force Field is a zero-impact software-only product. It comprises of a collection of intelligent, light-weight, and easy to deploy MicroSensors that are sprinkled across your enterprise application stack. The MicroSensors in conjunction with a Local Intelligence Center called, LocalBay, will discover, monitor, and secure the enterprise application stack from advanced API payload threats even in a fast-paced CI/CD environment. ArecaBay Force Field supports multitude of application stacks running in private data centers, hybrid clouds, and public clouds including the serverless services.
ArecaBay’s Network Engine consists of a collection of MicroSensors. The MicroSensor is comprised of an intelligent and extremely light-weight API Spec Engine that is capable of identifying and dissecting API payload to the object-level. This API Spec Engine is packaged into custom built software to run in Physical, Virtualized, Containerized, and Serverless environments. For other existing 3rd party products and infrastructure, this API Spec Engine is packaged as plugins and integration packages.
The Network Engine works in a continuous loop with a self-adaptive API spec generation module that consumes unknown data to accurately identify to a microscopic level the API and the objects within its payload. This API spec is fed back into the network engine to accurately identify and extract only the relevant APIs and their object-level payload. This combined with correlation across various call segments allows ArecaBay to accurately provide rich contextual insights into the API transactions leading to various discover, monitor, and secure use-cases. The ArecaBay Console allows for configuration of the system & policies, view insights, and also to generate analytics & reports for use by DevOp, DevSecOp, and also InfoSec teams.
