  • Interrupts attack automation; drains resources and motivation of bad actors to attack
  • Creates a new zero-trust posture for publicly exposed web and API applications

MAHWAH, NJ, July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Radware® (NASDAQ: 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 methodologies, the algorithms help close security loopholes that allow sophisticated bots to evade traditional CAPTCHA solutions to harm a website or app. At the same time, they allow genuine website visitors to enjoy a frictionless, CAPTCHA-free user experience.

“The problem of bad bots continues to grow for businesses large and small. Bad bots are used for everything from retrieving concert tickets and storing infant formula and video game consoles to account takeovers and credit card fraud,” said Dr. David Aviv, Chief Technology Officer of Radware. “While CAPTCHAs are a popular mitigation option and work for some use cases, they are no longer able to defend against today’s scalable and sophisticated bots. Organizations need to move from a single solution traditional to a multi-layered defense mechanism capable of mitigating even the most advanced bot attacks.”

According to research by Radware, there has been a 144% increase in Gen 4 bot attacks between 2021 and 2022. Although using CAPTCHAs has been the most popular method of preventing bad bots from accessing websites, CAPTCHAs can lead to poor user experience, customer frustration and unsubscribe. Additionally, by using various techniques to avoid digital fingerprinting as well as anti-CAPTCHA plugins and CAPTCHA resolution farms, bot masters can avoid CAPTCHAs altogether, making it harder than ever to protect users. Internet properties against bots.

To counter these tactics, Radware’s new encryption mitigation algorithms form the basis of a new zero-trust posture for publicly exposed web and API applications. Because the mitigation takes place behind the scenes, it is invisible to visitors, which not only makes it difficult to handle bad actors, but also creates a more seamless web experience for end users. To enhance application security, mitigation is also continuous. It works with near-zero grace periods to keep malicious bots busy and drain their resources, as well as curb the bot master’s motivation to attack.

For two consecutive years, Radware has been recognized as the technology leader in Quadrant Knowledge Solutions’ SPARK Matrix™: Bot Management analytics in 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.
