Overall Satisfaction with ShieldSquare Bot Prevention Solution

We use ShieldSquare for bot mitigation across our site 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.
  • 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.
If someone needs a bot mitigation solution and they are losing customers/users because of it, I would recommend ShieldSquare with no reservations.
