BotGuard Knowledge Base
Web Developer Partner Program
BotGuard is a cloud-based cyber security partner for web developers. We selectively block bad traffic in real time, while granting unrestricted access to a website for human users, search engines, and affiliate tools.
THE PROBLEM — Bad Bot Traffic Is A Growing Problem Across The Web
At least 36% of web traffic in 2020 was generated by bots, half of which are harmful to websites. Bots are increasingly being used for data theft and commercial manipulation. Cybercrime and acts of unfair competition are gradually becoming commonplace in online business.
What Damage Do Bad Bots Do To Businesses?
Why Traditional Bot-blocking Tools Are Not Enough
Popular WAFs fail to distinguish between legitimate users and new-gen bots. Bots are rapidly evolving and using sophisticated human-mimicking techniques. Most main-stream solutions aren't effective against new-generation attack tools and advanced bot software.
All Standard Firewall Solutions Fall Short
The human-like interactions of modern bots require a high level of intelligence and contextual analysis to distinguish them from real users, which no firewall solution can provide.
CAPTCHAs Only Annoy And Discriminate Against Legitimate Users
CAPTCHAS aren't designed with everyone in mind and can leave users with disabilities feeling left-out. Advanced bots can already solve captcha with 99.8% accuracy, which is better than humans.
Enterprise Level Solutions Are Unaffordable For 99% Of Website Owners
The lack of dedicated SecOps teams or an efficient solution at an affordable price leaves SME businesses particularly vulnerable to bot attacks.
THE SOLUTION — BotGuard Cloud Web Protection
The BotGuard service enables the website admin to choose precisely who is allowed to access the website, and who is not. We block bad traffic in real time, while allowing unrestricted access to legitimate users. Our novel software was built for mass use, making it an accessible and affordable solution for a wide range of web developers and businesses.
Web admins now have the tools to monitor and manage web traffic.

Legitimate good human users, search engines, and cloud services can enter with no delay or action required. An administrator or web developer configures any additional custom rules in a convenient Rules Editor.
