Protect your website, mobile apps, and APIs from malicious bots while maintaining access for the good bots that help your business.
Bot management is part of a comprehensive security strategy to optimize customer engagement, protect digital assets, and prevent online fraud.
Bots make the Internet work—from search engine crawlers that bring the world to your fingertips to chatbots that engage and influence your customers early in the buyer’s journey.
Bots also scale automated attacks like credential stuffing, which can result in account takeover (ATO) and fraud. Motivated cybercriminals leverage a sophisticated arsenal of bots, automation, and evasion techniques. They also perform ongoing reconnaissance to identify security countermeasures and constantly retool their attacks to evade detection.
Don’t settle for bot management that fails to deter cybercriminals or frustrates customers with friction that leads to transaction abandonment, lost revenue, and hot leads for your competitors.

Bad actors use fake accounts to commit financially motivated attacks, including reward abuse on retail sites, money laundering via online banking, and even as a disguise for credential stuffing.

Fraud is increasing in sophistication and is often driven by financially motivated organized crime rings that employ bots to carry out their attacks. These groups are also known for retooling their attacks to overcome commoditized bot protection, which puts security teams on the defensive and strains precious resources. Failing to effectively manage bots can have big impacts on your application performance, your customer experience, and your business.
Security must adapt to attackers that retool to bypass countermeasures—without frustrating users.
This ability to react as apps and attackers adapt can dramatically improve business outcomes by slashing fraud losses, providing better customer experiences, and maximizing operational efficiencies and business intelligence.
Apps are the business. Automation enables organizations to be first to market, first to profit, and first to innovation with apps that literally change the world.
Conversely, attackers have embraced bots and automation to carry out their attacks, leading to abuse, account takeovers, fraud, and damaged brands.
The most sophisticated attackers will retool against all countermeasures, using techniques that emulate human behavior to evade detection. Security must maintain resilience and effectiveness to protect businesses from cybercrime that can lead to unauthorized access, account takeover, and fraud.
