Barracuda today announced the acquisition of advanced bot detection technology from InfiSecure Technologies. InfiSecure specializes in low-latency detection and mitigation of advanced bots, and adds advanced capabilities to Barracuda’s recently announced Advanced Bot Protection which will be available for both the Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service and Web Application Firewall platforms.

As bots evolve and simulate human behavior more and more closely, bot detection and mitigation strategies must evolve as well. Low-and-slow bots, which request data slowly and rotate IP addresses often, require special fingerprinting techniques to detect. Combining InfiSecure’s technology with the Barracuda Global Threat Intelligence Infrastructure’s diverse set of behavioral data points, will provide Barracuda WAF powerful capabilities to combat such attacks.

 

Every application is different, and each offers unique opportunities for bots. A generic bot detection methodology fails to address the specific bots written for different applications. InfiSecure’s state-of-the-art machine learning layer provides automatic profiling of each individual application to provide application-specific bot detection and mitigation capabilities and help ensure the highest protection.
