How Bot Management works

How it works

As part of the Imperva Application Security Solution, Advanced Bot Protection protects all your access points and provides you with the choice of multiple response options for incoming bots.

Imperva collects and analyzes your bot traffic to pinpoint anomalies. Our machine learning models identify real-time bad bot behavior across our network and feed it through our known violators database. Browser validation and advanced automation detection pinpoint malicious botnets hiding behind shared IP space. Rate limits based on device fingerprints — not IPs — provide further protection.

Accurate bot detection

Accurate Detection Catches More Bots

Imperva’s Advanced Bot Protection categorizes whether traffic is coming from a human, a good bot or a bad bot. And it does so quickly and accurately, with a very low false positive rate.

With Imperva’s Advanced Bot Protection, you can stop bad bots from abusing your available functionality. Protect against all business logic abuse on your website, APIs and mobile apps.
