How real-time protection shields your website from bots

As and when a page request happens from a visitor on your website, the REST API call that is embedded in the header of the page is executed. This action sends a synchronous call with various parameters about the user to the Radware Bot Manager

The Bot Manager detection engine analyzes the parameters and classifies the visitor as a human, malicious bot, crawler, or aggregator, and sends the corresponding response code within tens of milliseconds (including network latency). Based on the response code, you can take action against bots depending on your business logic and other factors. If the visitor is classified as a genuine user, the page loads and the JavaScript snippet code at the bottom of the page executes. This JavaScript snippet sends an asynchronous call to the server with additional parameters for further analysis.

The combination of REST API and JavaScript snippet helps Radware Bot Manager in detecting bots efficiently in real-time, with minimal false positives.
