Default metrics for critical events

A while back, we launched the first version of Metrics, which allows you to create powerful queries and rules based on time-series data. At the time of launch, Castle offers a set of useful metrics based on standard events, like login and registration. Today, we're launching the ability for you to use metrics on your own custom events by tagging them as "critical".

Hideable main navigation

In order to give you maximum screen real estate for your fraud investigations, we've launched an improvement to the main navigation bar that allows you to hide it and keep it hidden by default. Simply click the arrow icon to collapse it, and it will stay hidden until you hover it, or press the arrow icon again to bring it back to the default visible state.

Introducing: Metrics

Today we're happy to launch the first version of Metrics, a powerful way of filtering and creating rules based on time series data. With Metrics, you can quickly set up rate limiting rules based on counters, e.g. to block requests with more than 10 failed logins per IP in the last hour, or when the number of users per device exceeds 2.

Larger data exports

With the Castle Dashboard, you're able to quickly export data to CSV directly in the browser, which is a good way of facilitating work across different tools or do deeper analysis offline. By default, there is a limitation of 10k records for each of these exports. Today we're launching an update to all Castle Enterprise customers, allowing you to export up to 1M records instead.

Improved time selector

The time selector is a central concept in the Castle Dashboard, available both in the Explore view and in the User profile view. Today, we're launching a big improvement to the time selector component that allows you to navigate your data even faster.

Introducing: Integration via Segment

Good news for Segment customers! A while back, we launched our client side integration, which offers a super quick way to get started with tracking events to Castle. Apart from being easy to integration, the client side events also offer great insights in fraud investigations as you're able to see everything your users has been up to. Today, we're happy to announce an even easier way of getting started with Castle. As a customer of Segment, you can enable the client side event tracking by a flick of a switch.

Advanced table filters

To be able to easily group data is one of the most powerful features of the Explore view as this allows you to e.g. quickly find users, devices or IPs involved in an attack. Today, we're launching two new filters that will make this view even more powerful

added

Introducing: Lists

Today, we're happy to launch a new, powerful feature in the Castle product: Lists! The goal with Castle is to help you both find, manage and stop fraud, and Lists will greatly help in all of those areas.

improved

More string filters available

Today, we've introduced three new ways of matching strings in the available filter options: "contains", "start with" and "end with". This opens up a lot more flexibility when it comes to finding patterns, for example searching emails that end with "gmail.com", IPs that start with "1.1.1" or User Agent strings containing "Firefox"

Scores available in API response

Some time ago, Castle launched a dedicated bot score as well as account takeover score, in addition to the more general Castle score, which looks more broadly at abusive behaviors. These three scores have been available to search, filter and create policies on in the Castle Dashboard for some time now, and today we're making them all available in the Risk and Filter API responses.
