PerimeterX Bot Defender®
Bot mitigation: Stop automated bot attacks
PerimeterX Bot Defender is a behavior-based bot management solution that protects your websites, mobile applications and APIs from automated attacks, safeguarding your online revenue, reducing the risk of data breaches and improving operational efficiency.
Automated bots can generate over 50% of the traffic to your website. Malicious bots can take over your users’ accounts, abuse your payment pages, hoard inventory or scrape your pricing and content. In addition to being a security threat, bots can also erode your competitive edge and skew your web analytics, leading to revenue loss and increased customer service costs.
Bot Defender combines intelligent fingerprinting, behavioral signals and predictive analysis to detect bots on your web and mobile applications and API endpoints. With industry-leading accuracy, Bot Defender minimizes user friction and ensures a safe customer journey.
With PerimeterX automation through AI fingerprinting we could identify the good web traffic from the bad, including very sophisticated attacks — which pays for itself. The fact that it’s been done automatically has been critical to our site reliability and site uptime.
The PerimeterX Platform can be integrated into any web application within minutes. Over forty pre-built PerimeterX Enforcer integrations support a wide range of content delivery networks (CDNs), load balancers, web and application servers.
Bot Defender protection extends across your web and mobile applications as well as to API endpoints. With an easy-to-integrate mobile SDK, you can make bot protection a seamless and invisible part of your omnichannel customer journey.
Bot Defender uses a combination of fingerprinting, behavior-based and predictive methods to detect bots and stop hyper-distributed attacks with high accuracy. This results in fewer false positives and improved customer experience.
Bot Defender preserves your real users' experience without sacrificing page load performance. The out-of-band architecture and extremely low false-positive rates ensure quick response times and a positive experience for your users.
Bot Defender offers rich bot analytics through pre-built and customizable dashboards. It also integrates with leading website and business analytics platforms like Adobe Analytics and Google Analytics to continuously enrich and improve the accuracy of your data.
Our 24/7/365 proactive security team is always available via multiple channels to help you investigate security incidents, provide actionable insights and function as an extension of your team.
Bot Defender runs on the PerimeterX Platform, a set of cloud-native infrastructure and services that powers an award-winning suite of application protection solutions, enabling full visibility and control of your web and mobile applications and APIs. The Platform also powers PerimeterX Code Defender and PerimeterX Page Defender which protect your website against security threats including unauthorized third-party code changes, unwanted browser extensions and ad injections.
The Sensor collects and sends hundreds of client-side indicators to the detector for precise determination of human versus bot activity. The signals or indicators are used to create the device and browser fingerprints. The Sensor does not collect or store PII data.
The machine learning (ML) based Detector continuously learns the normal range for human interactions, correlates it with customer-defined policies and updates the Sensor with new intelligence. The Detector maintains a growing repository of known attacks, anonymizes and aggregates across all customers to increase accuracy. The Detector frequently updates its training data set and augments its ML features based on internal and external data, which means best-in-class protection.
The Enforcer is the gatekeeper for threat response policies generated by the detector. It enriches and mitigates bot traffic according to business needs. The Enforcer also continuously learns and updates the Detector with relevant data. The Enforcer can be deployed inline with any existing server-side web infrastructure.
The cloud-based management Portal displays all activity in real time including attacks, blocked requests and rate-limited good bots. Manage all bot traffic, good and bad, with an intuitive admin interface. With the Portal, you can investigate attacks and create custom reports.
