All-in-One Cloud Website Protection
Affordable protection for every website
Web Traffic Management
Choose from 8 categories of visitors, and allow access only to the ones you want to let in. Our traffic management system covers all types of automated threats to web applications. This includes content scrapers, brute-force credential crackers, scalpers, spambots, and much more.
Web Application Firewall
The BotGuard Web Application Firewall (WAF) is your main line of defense against hacker attacks, including all the OWASP Top 10 threats like cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection (SQLI), cross-site request forgery (CSRF), and remote file inclusion (RFI).
Web Content Protection
By integrating the BotGuard service you also get protection against website content leakage. Your site will be secure regardless of whether the content copying is carried out by advanced software tools, or by humans. We use uniquely developed proprietary techniques to protect your content.
Do I Need BotGuard?
Why Standard Hosting Tools Are Not Enough
Many popular solutions fail to distinguish between legitimate users and bots. New-gen bots are rapidly evolving sophisticated human-mimicking techniques. In-house scripts and standard firewalls fall short, while enterprise-level solutions are extremely complicated and expensive.

Why You Should Protect Your Web Application
Not all users of your website are human. Software bots, both good and bad, drove at least 36% of web traffic in Q1 2021. In other words, every 3rd visitor to your site is not human. Malicious bots are responsible for most of the current threats to websites. Some of the most prevalent risks include:
What You Get With BotGuard

Take your rightful position in organic search results, ensuring the negative impact of "bad" bots plays no role in your ranking. Did you know that you might be losing real visitors due to bad bots?

Blocking bots has an immediate impact on analytics by excluding unreliable data. Did you know that you can make wrong decisions based on stats distorted by bad bots?

How to Integrate Protection in Minutes
Web Server Integration
If you have the opportunity to install the BotGuard web server extension module directly on your web server, we highly recommend this integration method. BotGuard provides extension modules for Nginx and Apache web servers.
Content Management System Integration
If you do not have access to the web server configuration, you can use our plugin for the WordPress Content Management System, or alternatively our PHP plugin which works with any PHP-based web application.
Affordable Website Protection Prices

A hit is a visitor request to your web server made by a legitimate user. We don’t count or charge for blocked malicious visits, only the filtered and allowed traffic. If the limit is exceeded, we charge € 1 for every 100,000 hits over the limit.
