Bots used to be relatively easy to detect with a rules-based approach because bots performed very rapid, repetitive tasks. But, bots have evolved considerably and can now almost perfectly impersonate human behaviors. This evolution means the rules-based approach, which is designed to block common attack patterns, is much less effective. To provide clients with the best defenses, WAFs should partner with specialists that can detect bots in a different way.
Instead of relying on traditional, anomaly-based detection, White Ops investigates each transaction for signs of automation. This investigative approach ensures that our detection is uncorrelated to your existing efforts and ensures there is a human on the other end of every transaction.
Our testing spans thousands of variables and hundreds of individual tests. To pass, a bot must match each test individually and fail only one.
A global security team investigates new threats and releases new markers to ensure customers are protected against the latest and most sophisticated threats.
White Ops detection can be deployed in almost any environment with limited effect on latency, evaluating a transaction in mere milliseconds.
