Frequently Asked Questions

What is Client-Side Protection?
Client-Side Protection is technology that runs inside the browser of your end-users, blocking a vast array of attacks such as Cross-site scripting (XSS), Clickjacking, CSRF, Formjacking, Magecart / Supply chain attacks. The best way to provide client side protection is implementing a strict content-security-policy (CSP), leveraging samesite cookies and optimizing other security headers. RapidSec fully automates these browser-native controls, making client-side protection effective, yet effortless.
Do I need RapidSec if I already have a WAF (Web Application Firewall)?
Yes, absolutely! RapidSec's patent-pending technology provides a new critical layer of web protection, above the WAF, which effectively eliminates attacks targeting your vulnerable client-side. We ensure only allowed scripts are running on your page, data exfiltration to malicious sources is blocked, and all cookies are well-configured to protect your users and data.
How does RapidSec Boost website performance?
Most web security products slow your web asset down: they require to be the first blocking javascript to run on each page and virtualize every DOM manipulation - to the detriment of your users and business metrics. RapidSec takes a different approach: our patent-pending technology runs at the browser's core-level and does not interfere with the javascript thread - while offloading business logic and compute to our distributed AI edge network. This means better security with improved performance!
Which vulnerabilities does RapidSec defend against?
RapidSec protects your users and data from the most common and painful attacks on your Web Client side. These include:
XSS · Cross Site Scripting: The most common attack on web platforms, accounting for over 40% of all bug bounties worldwide, and behind many major attacks and lawsuits. XSS forces your site to run unauthorized javascript code, giving attackers full control of the user's session, forging requests, exfiltrating data, or deleting data.
CSRF · Cross Site Request Forgery: A malicious attack where a user is tricked into performing an action he or she didn't intend to do. It can result in damaged client relationships, unauthorized fund transfers, changed passwords and data theft - including stolen session cookies.
ClickJacking: An attack that tricks a user into clicking a webpage element which is invisible or disguised as another element. This can cause users to unwittingly download malware, visit malicious web pages, provide credentials or sensitive information, transfer money, or purchase products online.
Magecart: It works by operatives gaining access to websites either directly or via third-party services and injecting malicious JavaScript that steals data shoppers enter into online payment forms, typically on checkout pages.
CSIM · Client Side Injected Malware: These vulnerabilities arise when applications using a client-side template framework dynamically embed user input in web pages. The security impact of client-side injection vulnerabilities is dependent upon the nature of the vulnerable application, the kinds of data and functionality that it contains, and the other applications that belong to the same domain and organization.
