Cloudflare is one of the world’s largest networks. Today, businesses, non-profits, bloggers, and anyone with an Internet connection presence boast faster, more secure websites and apps thanks to Cloudflare. Approximately 25 million Internet properties are on Cloudflare.


Bot Evolution

Bots are getting more and more advanced and are ever evolving. To keep your site safe, your mitigation methods should also do so. Yesterday’s methods may not work tomorrow.

Types of bots:

  • Basic Bots (simply collect info, repetitive attack pattern)
  • Mature Bots (steal sensitive data, commit fraud, disrupt business)
  • Sophisticated Bots (mimic human behavior, uses legitimate customers credentials)

Key features

Boost conversion rates Lower app response times, faster page loads, and better reliability all increase buyer conversions. We improve performance by protecting and mitigating malicious and illegitimate traffic while leaving your legitimate and converting customers unaffected and secure.

Block malicious attacks E-commerce clients are common targets of malicious activity. Attackers look to compromise customer data, commit fraud, steal accounts, and otherwise disrupt business. Bot management is aimed at blocking these kinds of attacks, and preventing bot account takeovers and other malicious bot activity.

Avoid data breaches Web application security is especially important for companies handling customer data. We offer layered security defences, WAF, rate limiting, and an IP reputation database, to block malicious activity and help prevent data loss.

DDOS attack Any downtime hurts sales, and DDos attacks take down web properties by inundating them with massive amounts of artificial traffic. We are able to stop even the largest DDoS attack.

Enhanced experience for the real customers By not letting bots steal the stock, we help you give your real customers a more fair chance of buying what they want.
