Bot management is the blocking of undesired or malicious automated traffic, while allowing useful bots to access the web-facing infrastructure.
With the right bot management technology, you can quickly identify bot activity and accurately detect when that bot traffic is behaving with malicious intent.
If left to their own devices, bots can quickly cause issues for websites, mobile applications and APIs. Too much bot traffic can weigh down servers, slowing down or taking a server offline entirely, and it doesn’t take many bots programmed with malicious intent to perform a whole host of detrimental cyber-attacks.
An effective bot management solution must resolve the complex bot threat with the successful identification of human vs. good and bad bot traffic.
