Detect & Block Bots and Prevent Account Takeover

At Netacea we focus on preventing malicious bot attacks by harnessing the power of Intent Analytics™ with machine learning. Netacea provides a sophisticated multi-tiered approach to identifying and mitigating bot traffic.

Rise of data breaches and compromised credentials

With up to 87% of your customers reusing their password’s across the internet and the ease of access to tools, data breaches has lead to a rise in account takeover attacks.

Bots are growing in volume and sophistication, now able to mimic mouse trails, bypass CAPTCHA, rotate IP addresses and evade rate-limiting, leaving traditional mitigation such as WAFs and basic bot fingerprinting unable to cope.


Behavioural Analysis & Machine Learning Bot Detection

Unlike JavaScript-based solutions which are vulnerable to manipulation, we’ve built Netacea from the ground-up with Intent Analytics™ and machine learning at the core to provide the best automated bot protection.

Our Machine learning utilises algorithms that learn from your traffic data and visitor patterns in combination with Historical I.P Analysis, Browser Finger Printing and Source Verification.

Bot Detection With Machine Learning Netacea

Transparent Threat Intelligence

Because every business traffic and threats are different Netacea offers a radically different approach to traditional “black Box” suppliers. Providing customers with the granular level of data and control needed to make informed business decisions.

Each layer of the behavioural threat intelligence is presented as a probability per threat type, so you see granular threat activity and implement the threat feeds to the critical areas of your enterprise.

Flexible Integration Options

Netacea is a cloud-hosted service and can be implemented in different ways depending on your architecture and requirements. Options include reverse proxy, pre-configured CDN integrations and customisable API integration to your network via WAF, SIEM, etc

The cloud infrastructure is highly available and distributed with complete failover protection. It has maintained 100% availability since inception in 2014 and has been load-tested to over 1 million concurrent users per instance with no performance degradation.

How it works

Netacea’s Intent Analytics™ uses machine learning to manage bot reconnaissance and attacks in real-time while allowing real humans and search engine, partner & affiliate bots access to your website.

Our adaptive architecture automatically pre-empts potential bad bot traffic and kicks in-line only when critical conversion or login paths are under threat, due to abnormal behaviour. The reputational analysis identifies malicious bots by using the shared intelligence database to check the digital provenance of the request.

Unlike other solutions, with Netacea any suspicious visitor from the reputational analysis is then loaded into the Behavioural Analysis Engine where upon further investigation a Threat Score is given. Pre-define what happens to the visitor depending on the threat score, such as permit; mitigate; enforce CAPTCHA; blackhole or hard block. The Feedback Loop can then add this rule back into the Reputational Analysis.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why can’t Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) detect and block sophisticated bots?

WAFs are effective tools as part of any secure web-based system, however WAFs are designed to look for and prevent requests that are targeted at exploiting security weaknesses. New and sophisticated bot attacks often look like legitimate human requests, which can often pass through a WAF unchallenged. Because of this, the multitude of security challenges caused by sophisticated Bot traffic require deeper analysis; making it necessary to look at the nature and patterns of requests that are being made and compare those to that being made by human users.

One way of dealing with bot traffic is by simply creating a blacklist of IP addresses however, it is a very limited solution and suffers from several key issues:• A reactive approach – A blacklist is created from known threats or retrospectively & only contains details of past attack IPs whereas automated threats will regularly rotate IP addresses and avoid any hard blocks on the IPs used previously• Blacklists require constant maintenance to ensure that new threats are added to the list as they are discovered and historically identified threats need to be revalidated periodically to ensure the authenticity of each entry.

At Netacea, we understand that your user experience and site performance are key when creating and maintaining web applications and our solution is no different. Our solution has been designed with performance in mind and with a number of implementation options that customers can choose from, we ensure there is minimal to no impact on the protected site’s performance.• In-line ultra-low latency reverse proxy - latency added is typically 1-3 milliseconds• Out of line zero latency integrations – CDN based integrations or API based architecture

Our solution is entirely cloud-based and we require no on-premise equipment in order for our solution to begin working. Customers can utilise our solution in one of three ways, through our reverse proxy, via an integration with a CDN or by using our API architecture. Regardless of the implementation choice, we’re able to implement our customer’s chosen architecture within hours (however typically we do ask for around one week to allow for testing and tuning the implementation) and are on hand to assist our customers every step of the way.

Our adaptive data model and micro-services API approach gives huge power and flexibility to ensure that even the most complex of visitor requirements can be elegantly and reliable handled at volume, using the existing infrastructure that enterprise customers already maintain and own. Using our rich set of API, you can send the threat alerts to your WAF, CDN provider, or firewall of choice.

Delivering a great user experience is critical when running an enterprise site & Netacea’s technology has been designed with accessibility in mind. We regard it as a duty to support all users who have accessibility issues and use readers. Our core behavioural learning does not change across platform types. Where we specific bot mitigations - for example when we display a Captcha, our configurable behavioural policies ensure that we only serve captcha to any suspect traffic. If captcha is served to any humans, we do have a range of accessibility options for visually or audio impaired users, or those users who lack the fine motor skills necessary to complete some difficult Captchas. All our Captcha’s have a text alternative, allowing them to be read by a reader, and audio alternatives for those with vision impairment.In addition, our fingerprinting does not require the use of JavaScript. Although providing a text-based Captcha does provide bot writers with a potential exploit to bypass the Captcha, we monitor the accessibility options very carefully to ensure that the small percentage of traffic accessing the text-based Captcha is legitimate and under normal thresholds.Summary of Accessibility options:• Does not require JavaScript so all assistive technology will work• Provides and Audio Alternative so login can be navigated with a screen reader• Settings & permissions• No complex or repetitive navigation links – so each page is placed in its natural order, so the flow is easy to use.
