A Big 5 Canadian bank had been suffering from automated attacks on its web and mobile login applications for months.
Bad actors were performing credential stuffing attacks on all possible channels. Not only were the attacks leading to account takeover fraud losses, but the sheer volume of attacks also put significant strain on the bank’s infrastructure.
After months of playing cat-and-mouse with the attackers, the bank decided to seek out a sophisticated solution and approached Shape.
In this case study, learn how Shape’s Enterprise Defense service and Threat Intelligence team were able to successfully defend against these attacks.
A Top 3 US Telecom Provider needed to secure its mobile accounts from credential stuffing attackers targeting them to commit various fraud schemes, including:

More than 80% of organizations in Asia are not protected against today's threats. Many of them depend on security investments made years ago, which cannot defend against new and emerging threats. The arrival of new technologies including cloud computing, the Internet of Things, mobility, bring your own device (BYOD), and social media have massively increased attack surfaces and expanded the threat landscape.
New agile solutions are required that can address today's threats and enable organizations to adjust their security posture as the threat landscape evolves.

In today's hyperconnected and digitized world, cybersecurity has become an important strategic imperative owing to the sophistication of cybercrime. Digital businesses require complex and distributed interactions among people, applications and data - on premise, off-premise, on mobile devices and in the cloud. The result is an increase in the attack surfaces that are hard to protect and defend. As the perimeter continues to diminish, visibility into the environment gets tougher. Operational Technology (OT) and the Internet of Things (IoT) massively expand the scope of security strategy and operations. When a massively distributed fleet of autonomous devices that can make decisions is combined, directly affecting the physical state of people and things, there is a considerable risk to manage. This issue is not limited to the chief information security officer (CISO) but needs the involvement and sponsorship of the leadership and the board.
The response to the question “How is one Intent-Based Networking offering different than the others?” typically sounds subjective, descriptive, and open to interpretation. What is needed is a tangible, objective, and fact-based nomenclature that can help you rationalize the maturity of Intent-Based Networking solutions. Using this nomenclature, we should be able to map Intent-Based Networking solutions to a specific maturity level, starting with Level 0 (low maturity/incomplete) up to Level 3 which enables a fully capable Intent-Based Networking solution (mature/complete).
Apstra introduced the notion of Intent-Based Networking and Self-Operating Networks™ in June of 2016, and in our blog “Intent Based Networking: What Is It” we provided a definition of Intent-Based Networking, listing capabilities that a complete Intent-Based Networking system needs to provide. The goal is to categorize maturity levels of various Intent-Based Networking implementations and enable network operators to
