Best Bot Detection and Mitigation Software

Bot detection and mitigation software is used by companies to defend against attacks or other unauthorized activity involving bots. Bots may attempt to take down sites and perform a DDoS attack, scrape data from a website, or perform fraudulent transactions. Bot detection and mitigation products are designed to recognize bot activity, identify malicious bots, and prevent them from engaging with websites, applications, or networks. Companies use these tools to maintain availability during attacks and prevent bots from completing their intended tasks. These tools may have similar features to DDoS protection software but bot detection and mitigation solutions defend against a variety of bot-related activities, rather than one type of attack.

To qualify for inclusion in the Bot Detection and Mitigation category, a product must:

  • Monitor websites, networks, or applications for bot-related activity
  • Identify malicious bot activity
  • Prevent network access to sources identified as dangerous
