There are hundreds of issues that could affect the security of a web application, and it only takes the discovery of one to allow a hacker an access path to valuable customer or business information. The process of finding potential targets is ideally suited to automation and automated attacks. Hackers use bots to uncover website security vulnerabilities on a large scale, across many sites and all crawlable pages. Any vulnerabilities found are potential targets for further exploration.
PerimeterX Bot Defender blocks vulnerability scans, while still allowing legitimate traffic through to the website. And it does so without any performance degradation to the site user. Bot Defender instantly determines if a site visitor is human or not, then blocks the non-human access. Unless it is a good bot that is explicitly allowed, such as one from Google.
