**Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.**
We currently have basic rate-limiting provided by `express-limiter`. There seem to be other tools out in the open-source space, that have more advanced functionalities.
We do need throttling of requests, to balance out the rate, at which the back-end receives requests. That will also allow to mitigate pulse DDOS attacks, in which too many requests are sent, within a very short time window.
**Describe the solution you'd like**
- [ ] compare `express-limiter` to `node-rate-limiter`
- [ ] add throttling
- [ ] add api tests showcasing throttling
**Describe alternatives you've considered**
- https://github.com/jhurliman/node-rate-limiter might be the better tool, as README provides explicit examples on throttling
