Goals and objectives

  • Build and Support Payment System and Methods:

Project challenge

  1. Traffic Filtering from Bots:
    Eliminate security and usability threats from bots abusing a user’s form with credit card information.
  2. Monitoring and Locking Bots:
    Detect and prevent bot activities before they will be able to do any significant damage to the system. 
  3. Dashboard and Alerts Implementation:
    Deliver effective visualization, monitoring, and alerting tools for the product.

Solution

We were entrusted with this project due to our extensive experience in LegalTech, as well as broad experience with FinTech projects. We leveraged an outstaffing cooperation model, designating two of our top Back-end software development engineers for the job. Our engineers were incorporated into the client’s payment team, working in cohesion with internal team members and focusing on the payment-related aspects of the product. 

The project was managed in Jira, and executed using SCRUM methodology with sprints, plannings, and other necessary sessions, while all design and communication were conducted in Figma.

Our team focused on Stripe payment system integration, as well as implementing ACH and IBAN payment methods to the product.

We implemented a dashboard and alerting system using Prometheus, an open-source monitoring and alerting toolkit, and Grafana, a popular open-source platform for monitoring and observability. This covered the need of our client for effective visualization, monitoring, and alerting to stay on top of system performance and security.

In parallel with developing dashboards, alerts, and notifications, our engineer created a logic for traffic filtering from the bot attacks. 

We integrated parameter analytics requests with a rating system from 0 to 100, implementing a mechanism to analyze incoming traffic, using parameters like user behavior, IP addresses, and other relevant data. The rating system helps assign a numerical value to each request, allowing the system to quickly assess the likelihood of it being a legitimate or bot-generated request. Based on the rating, the system can then take appropriate actions.
