Eliminate Form & Forum Spam with Radware Bot Manager

Protect the User Experience, Boost Engagement and Eliminate Spam Leads

The Impact of Form Spam

Form spam is constantly being carried out on websites and applications by spambots that abuse web forms by posting unsolicited messages or spam. Spam affects genuine interaction, lead generation, user registrations, social network sites and online businesses such as real estate portals, classified ads, job portals and other sites with forms.

Spambots slow website performance, generate skewed visitor analytics and lead to a poor user experience. Further harm to brand and revenue is caused when search engines downgrade spam-infested web pages and advertisers remove their ads.

“After careful consideration, we chose Radware Bot Manager because their bot detection solution is the most accurate and powerful service on the market.
We love it!”
