Protect your website, mobile apps, and APIs from malicious bots while maintaining access for the good bots that help your business.

Block bad bots to prevent attacks.

Every industry—including airline, gaming, and financial—experience varying volumes of bot traffic and must mitigate their own unique types of bot-powered attacks.

Account Takeover

Attackers test large numbers of compromised credentials (i.e., usernames and passwords breached from another site) against your login application to compromise those accounts for monetary gain.

Carding Fraud

The automated abuse of checkout pages to identify missing values of credit cards like expiration date or card security code (CSC).

Inventory Hoarding

Acquisition of goods or services by abusing the application in a manner that a normal user would be unable to undertake manually, eroding your customer trust.

Gift Card Cracking

A type of brute force attack in which attackers check millions of gift card number variations on a gift card application to identify card numbers that hold value.

Content Scraping

The use of automated tools to collect large amounts of data from a target application in order to reuse or sell that data elsewhere. 

Marketing Fraud

Automated repeated clicking or requesting or submitting content, skewing app generated business intelligence data.
