Cloudflare Bot Management

Stop bad bots while moving beyond CAPTCHAs

Undetected malicious bots can damage your brand, steal sensitive information, take over accounts, and negatively impact your revenue.

Now you can manage good and bad bots in real-time with speed and accuracy by harnessing the data from the millions of Internet properties on Cloudflare.

All with quick and easy deployment or as part of our SOC-as-a-service offering.

A Future without CAPTCHAs

Cloudflare is leading the world to a future without CAPTCHAs. We have developed effective new ways to challenge bots without the frustrations of solving CAPTCHAs.

We uniquely call on Private Access Tokens, a new open source standard for an invisible, privacy-first way for users to prove they are real using Apple devices – without CAPTCHAs or PII collection.
