A Bot Management Solution That Won’t Feel Like Playing Whack-a-Mole

We help busy teams detect and block bot-based attacks as well as other forms of malicious traffic automation

Accurately identify legitimate traffic vs. bot traffic, then automatically block only the bad bots so you don’t have to lift a finger.

  • Set-it-and-forget-it bot management
  • Protect APIs & applications against DDoS, botnets, and more
  • On-board sites in minutes
  • Fully managed, with 24/7 support

“We had a site that was being targeted by a bot, attempting to log in with rotating usernames and passwords. However, this threat actor was crafting a properly formed interaction with the API. So, there was nothing malicious. It was using proper user agents and properly formed headers — nothing about it was out of the ordinary. ThreatX’s ability to recognize anomalies that indicate suspicious behavior is game-changing.”

How We Help

Bot Console & Analytics

Monitor all bot & botnet activity, at scale – without wading through complex dashboards

Stay ahead of advancing bots and botnets with real-time visibility and protection that evolves with changes in behavior. ThreatX’s botnet console & analytics provide an overview of all detected bot activity within one dashboard, allowing security teams to quickly identify the largest and most risky botnets generating malicious automated traffic. Track changes in attack behavior by drilling down into analytics for a specific botnet at a time, identify which member bots are generating the most noise or growing in intensity.

Advanced Bot Detection

Reliably detect malicious bot activity without impacting good bots or legitimate users

Using multiple detection methods, including IP fingerprinting, interrogation, and tarpitting, ThreatX detects bots with high confidence. By creating attacker profiles for every threat, ThreatX tracks attack strategies over time as attackers move through the attack kill chain. For example, if an attacker were using a bot to perform reconnaissance, and then came back a month later to attack, ThreatX will have the history to make a confident blocking decision.

Risk-Based, Real Time Blocking

Detect and block bad bots in one platform, no transferring data between systems

ThreatX blocks malicious bots automatically, rather than giving you information to analyze then transfer to another solution for blocking. And we only block when the behavior reaches a certain risk threshold, so confidence is high and false positives are low. In addition, our risk scores evolve over time, continuously updating based on the latest observations, automating blocking as the risk score rises or falls.

Automated Bot Protection

Stop even the most sophisticated botnet attacks without adding work for your team

Attackers are evolving their bot tactics and programming botnets to evade defense systems. For instance, many attackers today will program botnets to rotate IPs to avoid geo-blocking or integrate solver services to make botnets bypass specific bot management technologies.

ThreatX detects and blocks a wide range of advanced bot attacks including large-scale volumetric botnets, low and slow bot reconnaissance, as well as other forms of malicious traffic automation. By fingerprinting attackers and tuning detection criteria, ThreatX tracks threat actors over time, even when they cycle IPs or user agents, ensuring they stay blocked.

Key Benefits

Secure APIs and applications with confidence, not complexity

Block attacks in real time with API and application protection you can trust 24/7 (without having to manage it yourself).
Block botnets and advanced attacks in real time

The ThreatX platform is always monitoring, assessing, and blocking attacks – automatically. It learns what threats to your system look like and stops them based on their risk level, so you can keep sites available and business humming.

Get your nights and weekends back

Stopping zero-day threats requires more than just software. You need real live people – but it doesn’t have to be you. Our expert team takes it on for you, so you don’t have to manage signatures or worry about false positives.

Ward off attacks with zero hand-holding

Onboard sites in under 15 minutes, not weeks. Block threats in an instant. And use simple dashboards that make it easy to see what’s going on.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How does ThreatX manage bot traffic while detecting malicious bots?
A: ThreatX will give you insight into all bot traffic hitting your APIs and applications so that you can understand the full picture of your bot traffic. Using a dynamic risk score, ThreatX highlights malicious bots by incrementally increasing their risk score as more nefarious activity is registered. This allows users (and the ThreatX platform) to quickly understand which bots are likely to be threats, what they’re targeting, and if desired – block them.

Q: How does ThreatX prevent account takeover?
A: Key tactics to protect against account takeover include the following:
Active Interrogation of Visitors – Actively challenge visitors in ways that are completely transparent to valid users while reliably revealing malicious automation.

Fingerprinting and Entity Tracking – Advanced fingerprinting techniques can track attackers even as they change IP addresses, user agents, or other identifying characteristics.

Automated Deception Techniques – deceptive techniques such as fake fields that are readable to bots but invisible to users. Any interaction with these fields or functions can reveal that the visitor is a bot and not a human. Additionally, tarpit or further deceive attackers to monitor and observe ongoing malicious behavior.

Application Profiling and Behavioral Analysis – Baseline and monitor the normal behavior of applications. Since many ATOs rely on malicious automation, it’s important to be able to detect anomalous and suspicious application behaviors to reveal a previously undetected account takeover.

These techniques represent just a few of the techniques and countermeasures that ThreatX uses every day against account takeovers.

Q: Does ThreatX include any manual management?
A: Other than a quick DNS redirect and perhaps some implementation tuning for complex environments – ThreatX is fully managed Protection-as-a-Service. There are no manual tasks for users unless desired. ThreatX managed services are available for support 24/7/365.

Q: How does ThreatX differentiate between good and bad traffic?
A: ThreatX detection methods are primarily looking for indicators of attack. This focus on attacker-centric behavioral analysis combined with a flexible approach to permanent and temporary blocks allows the ThreatX decision engine to identify threats with a high degree of accuracy.

Q: How does ThreatX behavioral analysis work?
A: The ThreatX platform correlates seemingly disparate activity across numerous IP ranges back to single entities and tracks them over time. As these entities perform various activity across your APIs and web apps a risk score starts accruing for malicious or potentially malicious actions.
