THE PROBLEM — Website Owners Are Looking For Protection Elsewhere
Bad bot traffic is a growing concern across the web among eCommerce stores and other website owners. Poor performance and website downtime caused by this malicious bot traffic is often perceived as a hosting problem, urging customers to change their hosting provider.
Many hosting companies already have some existing solution to mitigate some possible threats. Unfortunately, most main-stream solutions aren't effective against new-generation attack tools and advanced bot software. Here's why traditional bot-blocking tools are just not enough:
Professional vs. Home-grown Solutions
Home-made scripts only block the most easily recognizable bots at best, making this a less than adequate solution in defense against web threats. Maintaining such software with consistent updates and support also requires a large resource investment which isn't always a practical solution.
Most WAFs Fall Short Against "New-gen" Bots
Traditional WAFs fall short facing today's modern "next-gen" bots, which use sophisticated techniques to remain undetected. 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. In many cases it kills conversion rates and deters users from visiting your website again. Sophisticated bots can solve CAPTCHAs with 99.8% accuracy, which is better than humans.
