Why Nova Bot Protection

Simple Bot Blocking, Advanced Intelligence

A quarter of all web traffic comes from bots. Nova Bot Protection is a multi-layer, centralized solution for preventing automated traffic from abusing your site.

Enhanced Anti-Bot Security

Block the bots used by spammers and content scrapers, and hackers attempting account takeovers. It only takes one click to protect your systems, data, and users from abuse by malicious bots.

Fast and Highly Accurate

Fast on-node bot activity recognition for instant blocking. Centralized machine learning powers the Nova Bot AI that identifies bots with greater accuracy than traditional methods

Simple and Low Impact

Activate Nova Bot Protection in a single click – Nova Bot AI does the rest. Nova is smart enough to block malicious bots and allow safe crawlers, APIs, and real users for low impact on normal traffic.

Advanced Bot Detection

Bots often avoid detection by cycling through random IP addresses, entering through anonymous proxies, changing their identities, and mimicking human behavior.

To counter the bot threat, Nova Nodes include a powerful activity recognition engine capable of identifying suspicious browsing patterns, non-human input, and traffic from questionable sources.

Nova Nodes can also submit a user for central evaluation by the Nova Bot AI, which evaluates the user's input, browsing patterns, browser identifier, location, reputation, and more. Nova compares the client to other known bots, safe browsers, and our database of legitimate bots and spiders to avoid false positives.

The system is self-learning and constantly evolving its reputation database and bot recognition database.

Prevent Abuse By Bots

With Nova Bot Protection, you can easily stop bots from abusing your websites and applications, including these common types of abuse.

Spam - bad actors will use bots to crawl websites and submit spam information into forms and any vulnerability that can be filled with spam information.

Content scraping – bad actors will use bots to crawl websites to copy content (including confidential content that is intended to be hidden) – to steal intellectual property or to benefit from the SEO qualities of that content.

Account takeover - bad actors will use bots to takeover legitimate user accounts using credential stuffing – the automated injection of stolen username and password pairs.
