Bot Protection & Mitigation

Mitigate Bot Traffic and Protect Against Bot Attacks

Bot Mitigation from the experts at IPQS provides real-time bot protection against unwanted bot traffic. Protect your sites, apps, APIs, and ad campaigns from abusive behavior caused by bot traffic. Companies of all sizes are affected by bot traffic, with our latest research showing a 17% increase in malicious bots in 2023 alone. That figure translates into billions of dollars in lost revenue for companies worldwide without bot protection. Prevent malicious bots and prevent unwanted bot traffic with just one API request to query the reputation for an IP address or device.

Advanced bot protection is a much needed solution for any business as automated, non-human behavior can automatically place orders with stolen credit cards, deplete ad campaign budgets, create fake or duplicate accounts, scrape sensitive data, and even facilitate account takeover attacks.

Bad bots are also becoming more sophisticated every year, with new software available to cybercriminals that makes it harder to detect bots, such as using residential proxies with virtual devices, spoofing, and emulators. While most services cannot detect compromised devices or location spoofing, IPQS has developed leading technology to mitigate bots and sophisticated abuse.

Bot Protection Solution For Evolving Threats

IPQS uses an agile approach for real-time bot mitigation with a variety of overlapping checks that can stop bot attacks and unwanted traffic on websites and forms. Identify suspicious users and fraudulent behavior:

  • Device Fingerprinting - Analyze over 300 data points about a user's device to identify hijacked or fake virtual devices (emulators) by matching against millions of fraudulent device IDs.
  • IP Reputation - Compare the IP address against the Internet's leading provider is IP Intelligence data. Identify suspicious and bot IP addresses with a history of abuse.
  • Machine Learning - Connect the dots between millions of devices per day scored by IPQS. Our algorithms quickly identify new trends from bot traffic.
  • Behavioral Analysis - Identify suspicious behavior in real-time that would indicate non-human actions, headless browsers, and similar bot behavior.

Take your site's bot protection to the next level with thousands of detection tests performed in under a few hundred milliseconds using our most rigorous checks to block bots. For even faster performance, our bot detection API can provide near instant risk analysis for your traffic, clicks, users, and purchases.

Detect bots with 99.97% accuracy and less false-positives then leading bot management solutions. Each device that visits your site or apps is analyzed in real-time with browser validation. For example, if the user's browser (user agent) displays as Windows 10 Chrome 90, our system will perform very specific tests for Chrome and Windows platforms to validate this device. This model is highly accurate and helps mitigate sophisticated bots and abuse.

Bot Protection FAQ

"Bot protection" reduces abuse and fraud by mitigating bots and non-human behavior on a website, app, or API. Prevent fraudulent signups, purchase, and form submissions on your website by screening IP addresses and device data to detect bots. Bot protection solutions proactively limit abuse by bad actors and automated behavior.

"Bot mitigation" can deployed through an API call that can scan a user's device, user agent, and IP address to identify bad bot traffic. Real-time risk scoring classifies an IP address or device as a high risk bot or legitimate user. Mitigating bots helps prevent abusive behavior such as spam submitted on forms, fake accounts, and fraudulent purchases.

Bot attack protection is the best way to mitigate abusive behavior from malicious bots. Real-time bot protection can be integrated via API to score traffic on a website or app. Filtering abusive IPs and virtual devices or emulators can stop bots from submitting contact form spam, fake accounts, and risky payments.

Real-time bot protection prevents attacks on websites, forms, and the scraping of sensitive data. Mitigating bots in real-time prevents bad actors from website scraping and similar abuse where sensitive content is extracted without permission. Patterns of bot scraping include very short page loading periods, limited mouse movement, and excessive page hits. These malicious bot traffic patterns are common across all types of automated attacks. Block bots as they load your website or app to prevent web scraping.

Detect bots with real-time device analysis and IP address reputation. Deploying the IPQS bot detection API will provide comprehensive protection against bot attacks and high risk behavior. An application programming interface (API) will help mitigate malicious bots in real-time as they interact with your website or app.

Automated attacks can plague a website with frequent bot attacks for scraping, account takeovers, new account fraud, DDOS attacks, and more. The best way to mitigate malicious bots is to integrate a bot management solution which can identify unwanted bot traffic while still allowing legitimate traffic from real users. Bad bot traffic will always try to blend in as human-like traffic, so it's important for your bot protection system to not cause additional friction for real users.
