Radware Bot Manager is being used across the network to minimize various security issues. Mainly to detect, eliminate and manage bot traffic from websites application programming interfaces (commonly known as APIs) and mobile-based applications. As I am attached Financial Sector, people's money is being affected and our main focus is to secure people's money and Radware Bot Manager helps to do it.
  • Application targeted DDos
  • Card Fraud Prevention
  • Eliminate Invalid Traffic
  • Wish if the Reporting feature has some more drilling down
All new upgraded non-human bot detection feature is widely used across all the platforms open for customers and it is a great success. It provides zero access to malicious bots.
  • Non-Human Detection
  • Elimination of Bots
  • Network Bandwidth efficiency
As we have already implemented other Radware tools such as Cloud WAF and Threat Intelligence, it is much easier to carry on with the existing known vendor. Moreover with a great deal and most importantly product functionality and performance. Given the above reasons, Radware Bot Manager was selected and we are confident that it is the correct choice.

We use ShieldSquare to detect and prevent bot traffic and to detect users who try to download content from our website using automated programs (site rippers) like HTTrack.
  • Bot detection is great, goes far beyond checking user agents or requests/second.
  • Lots of integration options. You can use connectors in your code (php, javascript, etc) or in your webserver (nginx, etc.)
  • Support is awesome.
  • Supply precompiled versions of nginx with the ShieldSquare connector.
ShieldSquare works very well to detect and prevent bot traffic or if you have users trying to steal your content.
  • Difficult to put an exact number on it, but ShieldSquare helps us to prevent people stealing our content that might end up on torrent sites etc.
When I compared these two products, Distil Networks only offered a solution where their bot detection sits in between your website and the visitors, similar to how Cloudflare works. I didn't want this so I decided to go for ShieldSquare that uses connectors. I want my visitors to hit the website directly, not have something sit in between.

We use ShieldSquare for bot mitigation across our site MMORPG.com. It was evaluated and implemented to help prevent bots from stealing game codes reserved for our site members in our giveaways and contest systems.
  • ShieldSquare provides an easy to implement way of identifying website users that could be bots.
  • By rating the potential of the user of being a bot, we are able to handle that user in the proper way.
  • False positives are extremely rare with ShieldSquare. Plus, their support staff is also available to analyze traffic to specific content, and they can customize their algorithms when necessary to optimize the performance of their solution to suit our needs.
  • Overall, I’m happy with bot detection and management features offered by ShieldSquare.
If someone needs a bot mitigation solution and they are losing customers/users because of it, I would recommend ShieldSquare with no reservations.
  • Our specific need was to prevent the theft of game codes given to us to give out to our site users.
  • The implementation of ShieldSquare has been very positive in achieving this goal. They strengthened our security perimeter. Our users are happy, and the companies that provide us with the game codes are happy as well with the results.
We did not evaluate other companies. ShieldSquare was the first company we found when searching for a solution to our problem.

We have registered sellers all around the world who can post their items on MusicStack to sell their hard to find vinyl records and CDs. Users can search the items by artist, title, country, price, format, seller ratings, etc., and purchase. Bot activity was ruining our analytics reporting and hence we could not get clear and meaningful metrics so that we could display accurate graphs for our users and how many people (not bots!) where viewing and interacting with their listed products. We integrated ShieldSquare to protect our website from various bots and now only human traffic is being included in our analytics and traffic reporting.
  • ShieldSquare can be integrated easily with the out-of-the-box web server plugins and cloud connectors for existing IT infrastructure.
  • No specialized hardware or consultants required, which saves a lot in terms of costs and administration overheads for eCommerce businesses like ours.
  • The support team thoroughly understands our needs and challenges and then proposes the right course of action suited for our business model.
  • It would be nice to allow for more granularity when selecting which bots I'd like to allow through. I contacted support and asked about this and they said this was in the works.
  • If you select to show captchas instead of blocking, I feel their captcha screen could use some improvement on the UI/UX to make it more intuitive for users to know what to do. I contacted support and made them aware of this.
  • Would be nice to see captchas information in the statistics (i.e. how many captchas were presented, from what IP addresses, how many were filled out correctly),
ShieldSquare is well-suited to control unwanted traffic from bots such as social media crawlers, price and content scrapers. It may not be suited for stopping threats like SQL injection or XSS attacks as they fall under the firewall category.
  • Our analytics dashboard shows the correct data.
  • Our traffic has been genuine with most if not all of bot traffic eliminated.
  • We can now protect our pricing strategy from the competition.
We were looking for an API-based solution as opposed to a DNS-based solution. The latter introduces unwanted latencies, and might put our business at risk with unforeseen downtime. Choosing ShieldSquare was pretty straightforward as we knew what we wanted from the start. Also, their product and support teams were very cooperative and tweaked the solution to suit our needs.
