Thirteen Questions You Should Ask Your Bot Mitigation Vendor

The volume of automated threats on the internet today is staggering—in fact, over 20 percent of all internet traffic comes from bad bots. As the sheer volume, sophistication, and business damage caused by bad bots grows, many vendors are beginning to claim they have the ability to identify and mitigate bots. You’ll want to evaluate the claims of these vendors. Use these 13 questions about bot mitigation to help differentiate between solutions and make an informed decision.

Bot protection for websites is indispensable for fortifying online platforms against a myriad of malicious automated activities. As the digital landscape undergoes constant transformation, the threats posed by bots, such as web scraping, content scraping, credential stuffing, and DDoS attacks, become increasingly sophisticated. Implementing a robust bot protection tool offers several advantages, employing advanced algorithms and machine learning models to discern between legitimate user interactions and automated bot behavior. This not only ensures the security of sensitive data but also enhances the overall reliability and availability of online services. Regular updates to defense mechanisms and continuous monitoring further contribute to staying ahead of evolving bot tactics. By prioritising bot protection, websites not only uphold the integrity of user experiences but also mitigate the risk of data breaches, reinforcing trust and loyalty among their user base.

Imperva Bot Management protects your websites, mobile applications, and APIs from automated threats without affecting the flow of business-critical traffic. As part of the Imperva Application Security Solution, Bot Management protects all your access points and provides you with the choice of multiple response options for incoming bots.

Imperva collects and analyses your bot traffic to pinpoint anomalies. Our machine learning models identify real-time bad bot behavior across our network and feed it through our known violators’ database. Biometric data validation, such as mouse movements, mobile swipe, and accelerometer data, catches malicious botnets. Rate limits based on device fingerprints — not IPs — provide further protection.
