Bot Manager

Proactive Real-Time Bot Protection

Safeguard revenue, reduce data breach risk and improve operational efficiency—across APIs and web and mobile apps.

Bad Bots Have Gotten Worse.

The new generation of bad bots has arrived, and it’s more sophisticated, persistent and aggressive than anything we’ve seen before. Today’s bots are driven by artificial intelligence capable of rapidly creating zero-day scripts. They can closely mimic human behavior and sidestep standard defenses. This leaves organizations open to an array of attacks, including content scraping, data theft, stolen credentials, account take over, fraud and more.

Radware’s Bot Manager uses a three-layer approach to rise to the new bot challenge: Preemptive protection blocks unwanted IPs and identities before they cause damage, behavioral-based detection harnesses the power of AI to catch threats that others can’t, and advanced mitigation offers a wide range of granular and accurate mitigation options.

Fight AI with AI in the new battle against bad bots.

Features and Functionality

Bot Manager’s detection and mitigation engine incorporates an array of proprietary AI-based modules and hundreds of behavioral-based detection algorithms to provide the most comprehensive solution to protect web applications from bot threats.

  • Intent-based deep behavioral analysis
  • Embedded machine-learning modules that learn and evolve from feedback received
  • Detection of distributed bot attacks, header anomalies and rotating IPs and identities
  • Device and browser fingerprinting
  • Anomaly detection based on automated identification of a genuine user flow
  • Identification of emulation, impersonation, tampering, spoofing and replay attacks through Secure Identity and Google/Apple attestation before your mobile app is hit

Radware’s AI-driven threat analysis algorithms preemptively and automatically block malicious sources across all applications within an account. Our AI-based correlation engine prevents incoming bad traffic from overloading your application server and reduces overheads to your applications’ infrastructure and security operation management costs.

  • Automatically analyzes source behavior across all applications within the account
  • Cross-correlates events between the WAF, API protection and bot manager modules
  • Automatically blocks nefarious source IPs across all applications within the account for a predefined period
  • Provides complete visibility into each blocked source attack story

Bot Manager’s extensive integration options are designed to suit your existing infrastructure without the hassle of network or infrastructure changes. Select the integration option that best suits your needs:

  • Web Server Plugins
  • Cloud Connectors
  • JavaScript Tag
  • DNS Redirection
  • Virtual Appliance

Bot Manager’s granular data reporting and analytics allows users to analyze website traffic. The intuitive dashboard lets you:

  • Analyze all traffic to your site, including real-time reporting of malicious bot traffic, legitimate traffic, crawlers, and more
  • Set up your choice of mitigation options and configure other bot management actions based on your unique needs
  • Configure your own custom alerts

Bot Manager leverages advanced technologies to outperform in-house solutions as well as competitors. It differentiates good and bad traffic using:

  • User behavior analysis
  • Dynamic Turing tests
  • Collective bot intelligence
  • IP reputation feed
  • Intent-based analysis
  • Device and browser fingerprinting
  • Blockchain-based mitigation
  • Secure Identity
  • Google/Apple attestation

Radware’s Crypto Challenge mitigation is based on the cryptographic proof-of-work concept used in various blockchains, and designed to deliver:

  • Continuous, invisible browser-based challenges to suspected bots that automatically and exponentially become more difficult if solved
  • A challenge-response model that creates a ‘Cyber Counter Strike’ by forcing an attacker’s CPU to work harder and longer, thus taking a toll on the attackers resources
  • A convenient CAPTCHA-free user experience for legit users
  • Mitigation of sophisticated CAPTCHA-solver and avoider bots

Bot Manager’s enhanced protection stops attacks on mobile apps before they materialize.

Integrated Device Authentication

  • Our one-of-a-kind attestation for Google and Apple devices, ensures tighter and faster protection of native mobile apps
  • Make sure only real devices—not emulators, modified applications or modified OS—get to your resources

Secure Identity

  • Ensure the security of your client identity against identity spoofing, tampering and replay attacks by creating a unique identity for each user it validates requests against

Protection From Any and All Automated Threats

Account Takeover


Attackers employ bots and botnets to programmatically target user accounts. Fraudsters try to take over user accounts using breached or stolen credentials to make unauthorized transactions, transfer rewards and wallet balances, and access confidential corporate and user data.


Bot Manager leverages behavioral analysis to detect large-scale distributed account takeover attempts.

API Abuse


Attackers overwhelm business-critical services by sending traffic from multiple clients and overwhelming APIs. APIs are also used to carry out automated attacks such as web scraping and account takeover.


Bot Manager analyzes every API request, including HTTP headers and payload to identify anomalous behavior patterns, and filters bad API calls by performing intent analysis to understand the actual intent behind every API request.

Hackers carry out price and content scraping by using bots to programmatically crawl your website to obtain information about your pricing strategies and/or copy your unique content to gain an unfair advantage.


Bot Manager collects over 250 parameters along with device and browser fingerprinting, deep behavior modeling and dynamic Turing tests to identify sophisticated bots and block scraping of prices and other content on your website and application.

Hackers use Brute Force techniques to target coupons, gift vouchers and payment cards. Carders deploy bots on merchants’ checkout pages to verify and complete their illegally obtained cardholder datasets for fraudulent purposes or for resale.


Bot Manager helps organizations detect massive, distributed attacks on payment processing pages by combining multiple parameters including mouse movements, keystrokes and URL traversal patterns to spot non-human behavioral patterns.

Scalpers use bots to scoop up limited or high-demand products or event/ travel tickets and resell them on various portals for a profit, frustrating genuine buyers and harming brands.


Bot Manager’s multi-layered bot detection engine and contextual threat intelligence ensures accurate detection and blocking of bad bots before they can infiltrate into your web applications.

Skewed Analytics


Bots skew marketing metrics, disrupt funnel analysis, and inhibit KPI tracking. Automated traffic inflates product metrics, campaign data, and traffic analytics, making it hard for decision makers to develop the best strategies based on actual data.


Bot Manager seamlessly integrates with leading marketing tools to help you filter known bots, spiders, and sophisticated invalid traffic (SIVT) from your analytics, giving you an accurate look-to-click ratio.

Read More

Ad Fraud


Bad bots harm publishers and advertisers by creating false impressions and generating illegitimate clicks on digital ads on websites and mobile apps.


Using collective bot intelligence, Bot Manager ensures that ads are only shown to humans and assures high-quality traffic for advertisers.

Read More

Form Spam


Malicious bots are used to spam your website’s comments section and frustrate genuine users by posting phishing links, malicious links, and downloadable malware that could potentially steal personal information. Form spam also hinders marketing teams obtaining accurate and actionable visitor data.


Bot Manager uses a multi- layered detection approach to identify bad traffic and only provides access to genuine visitors to your website or application, giving you genuine leads and conversations.
