Cloud-based Website Protection

BotGuard provides the service to protect your website from malicious bots, crawlers, scrapers, and hacker attacks. With realtime bot detection we block bad bot traffic, while making sure legitimate users continue to access your website without restrictions.

To help you to stop hackers, spammers, content thieves, and competitors from hurting your business, we provide 3 levels of protection:

Web Application Firewall

WAF is your main line of defense against all web application attacks, including all OWASP Top 10 threats like cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection (SQLI), cross-site request forgery (CSRF) and remote file inclusion (RFI).

Malicious Bot Mitigation

Advanced profiling techniques and transparent challenges block bad bots from reaching your web application, while allowing legitimate traffic to pass through. You will be protected from all types of automated threats to web applications according to OAT.

Web Content Scraping Protection

By integrating the BotGuard service within your web application, you will be protected from scraping of sensitive data, even it is maintained with advanced "professional" instruments or manually by a human.

How It Works

Each request to your website is sent to the BotGuard cloud for analysis. A high-performance BotGuard system in real time determines whether a site visitor is a person or a malicious bot. Then it decides whether to allow this request, to prohibit it, or to make a transparent user check. The result is passed back to your web server, after which a person or a legitimate search engine bot gets a page of your site, and a malicious bot or hacker receives an error message.

The BotGuard engine analyzes the behavior of the site visitor, generates its "digital fingerprint" and stores the results of the check in the database. Our database contains millions of browsers fingerprints, which allows us to quickly and accurately identify the majority of bots and hacker attacks. The database is dynamically formed, and is also constantly expanded by the research team and security specialists.

For most visitors to your site nothing will change, they will visit your site as usual. If there are reasonable doubts, the verification of the visitor of the site performs transparently, without using captcha and delay page. BotGuard engine supports a variety of ways to check website visitors and is able to withstand emulation of a real visitor.
