Bot Detection Methods
Cloudflare enables you to manage bots with speed and accuracy by applying several detection methods.
Cloudflare analyzes behavior and detects anomalies in your Internet property's specific traffic, scoring every request by how different it is from the baseline.
Cloudflare’s Machine Learning trains on a curated subset of hundreds of billions of requests per day to create a reliable bot score for every request.
Cloudflare uses fingerprinting from over 20 million Internet properties to accurately classify bots. It does not generate or store device fingerprints, eliminating the risk of user privacy being compromised.
Sophisticated Protection Against Bad Bots
Threat Intelligence At-Scale
Accurately identify bots by applying behavioral analysis, machine learning and fingerprinting to a diverse and vast volume of globally distributed data.
Integrated Security and Performance
Cloudflare’s Bot Management solution seamlessly integrates with its WAF, DDoS and CDN products, enhancing security, user experience, and performance.
Complete Without Complexity
Allows good bots, such as those belonging to search engines, to keep reaching your site while preventing malicious traffic.
Mobile App and API Protection
Protects your mobile applications from impersonation and emulation attacks without using mobile SDK. The solution also protects APIs that are accessed via web browsers.
Granular rules, user-defined mitigations and unique actions beyond the industry standard like render a mock-login or alternative pricing page to thwart bots
"Using machine learning across millions of websites, Cloudflare was able to immediately identify unauthorized bots that were abusing our website. Their mitigation strategies block bots without impacting real users - our false-positive rate is now less than 0.01%."
Tony Bruess Engineer
Control and Configurability
Tune bot management rules to fit your specific needs by scoping them based on path or URI pattern, request method, score sensitivities, and mitigation methods, such as log, CAPTCHA, or block. Use a visual rule builder or write your own pattern-matching rules.
Rich Analytics and Logs
Improve your security posture through insights from viewing time-series graphs with drill-downs. Create your own dashboards that correlate bot management traffic logs with your other data sources by using third-party tools such as SIEMs or business intelligence applications.
"Cloudflare Bot Management gives us peace of mind as we scale our business. Our team can focus on creating value for our clients instead of dealing with bots! We now have a better experience for our clients with reduced spam, account takeovers, and malicious activity."
