- Interrupts attack automation; exhausts the bad actors’ resources and motivation to attack
- Creates a new Zero Trust attitude for public facing web and API applications
MAHWAH, NJ, July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Radware® (RDWR), a leading provider of cybersecurity and application delivery solutions, announced that it has enhanced its Bot Manager with a new set of crypto mitigation algorithms. Inspired by blockchain methods, the algorithms help close security loopholes that allow sophisticated bots to bypass traditional CAPTCHA solutions to harm a website or application. At the same time, they enable real website visitors to have a smooth, CAPTCHA-free user experience.
“The problem of malicious bots is increasing for businesses large and small. Malicious bots are used for everything from looting concert tickets and stockpiling baby formula and video game consoles to account takeovers and credit card fraud,” said Dr. David Aviv, Radware’s Chief Technology Officer. “While CAPTCHAs are a popular defense option and work for some use cases, they are no longer able to defend against today’s scalable and sophisticated bots. Enterprises need to move from a traditional one-size-fits-all solution to a layered defense mechanism that can mitigate even the most advanced bot attacks.”
According to Radware research, there was a 144% increase in Gen 4 bot attacks between 2021 and 2022. While using CAPTCHAs has been the most popular way to prevent malicious bots from entering websites, CAPTCHAs can result in poor user experience. Customer frustration and churn. Furthermore, by employing various digital fingerprint bypass techniques, as well as anti-CAPTCHA plugins and CAPTCHA solution farms, bot masters can completely avoid CAPTCHAs, making the security of Internet properties from bots more of a challenge than ever.
To counter these tactics, Radware’s new encryption algorithms lay the foundation for a new zero-trust stance for public-facing web and API applications. Since mitigation takes place behind the scenes, it is invisible to visitors, not only making it difficult for attackers to manipulate, but also creating a more seamless web experience for end users. In order to increase application security, damage limitation is also carried out continuously. It operates with almost zero grace periods to employ malicious bot machines and exhaust their resources as well as contain the bot master’s attack motivation.
For two consecutive years, Radware has been recognized as a technology leader in Quadrant Knowledge Solutions’ SPARK Matrix™: Bot Management analysis of the global bot management market. Radware Bot Manager protects against all forms of automated attacks, including account takeover, inventory denial, application DDoS, ad and payment fraud, and web scraping.
