Dynamically adapt protections to evolving attacks — including those targeting the OWASP Top 10.
Simplify security with automated updates and self tuning
Minimize effort with Akamai-managed updates and machine learning–powered self tuning.
Empower developers and security teams
Operationalize security with a choice of popular tools and deploy within a CI/CD pipeline.
Akamai’s visibility into prior behavior of individual and shared IP addresses is designed to stop malicious clients before they can attack.
The changing threat landscape forces you to constantly improve your ability to act on suspicious client behaviors. Apply an additional layer of protection on top of Kona Site Defender to mitigate the risk of successful DDoS and application-layer attacks while minimizing impact to legitimate users.
Client Reputation uses a proprietary risk-analysis engine that computes risk scores for every source IP address, customized for every customer. This custom risk-based scoring model will increase the accuracy of your security decisions by better identifying malicious clients. Client Reputation provides deep visibility into client activities to add an extra layer of intelligence-based protection to your web application security.
How Does Bot Manager Work?
Bot Manager is built on the Akamai Intelligent Edge Platform with approximately 300,000 servers in more than 130 countries for unmatched scale, resiliency, and performance. Clients ― real users and bots ― connect to your web application through the most optimal Akamai server, and Bot Manager detects, identifies, and manages bots at the edge ― before they get to your applications or data centers.
Bot Manager is designed to take the configured actions on bot activity at the edge server, forwarding only clean traffic to the origin. Supervised, unsupervised, and deep learning algorithms adjust to trends in legitimate and malicious traffic, and managed security services tune Bot Manager protections and respond to attacks. Bot Manager integrates with other Akamai security solutions, including distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) protection and web application firewall (WAF), for comprehensive application security.
