Need to defeat malicious bot traffic? We can help.

Schedule a demo

Organizations facing automated web-layer attacks rely on Fastly's Next-Gen WAF (formerly Signal Sciences) to identify and mitigate malicious bots from attacking their web applications and APIs. 

Already have a bot solution in place? With our highly programmable edge cloud platform, we’ve partnered with DataDome and PerimeterX to offer anti-automation and bot protection at the network edge.

Bot protection use cases

We provide detection and mitigation of anomalous and velocity-based bot attacks based on request header and body anomalies, traffic source reputation, and other criteria. Volumetric bot-generated traffic is mitigated via advanced rate limiting to both detect and prevent automated behavior against your applications and APIs.

Credential stuffing

Safeguard customer and corporate accounts and save traffic resources by blocking malicious automated credential testing on your login pages.

Gift and credit card fraud

Stop malicious bots from brute-force testing stolen credit card or gift card numbers that lead to fraudulent purchases. 

Content scraping

Maintain your competitive edge and SEO rankings by preventing bots from scanning and copying your unique content to be used on other sites.
