Bot Defense protects your Internet applications from automated attacks by identifying and mitigating malicious bots. Bots are software programs that run automated tasks. Bot activity accounts for about 50% of all internet traffic, and can negatively impact your users, your data and revenue for your organization.
Bot Defense is natively integrated in Distributed Cloud (XC) Console. If your applications already route traffic through an HTTP load balancer configured with F5 Distributed Cloud, this integration allows you to configure the Bot Defense service through your HTTP load balancer configuration.
Bot Defense is also integrated with BIG-IP. You can configure Bot Defense natively in BIG-IP 17.0 or later. For BIG-IP versions 14.0-16.0, you can download a BIG-IP iApp template.
Bot Defense also provides prebuilt integrations with the following platforms:
- Adobe Commerce Cloud (Magento)
- Amazon CloudFront
- Salesforce Commerce Cloud
For applications that do not have a prebuilt integration with Bot Defense, you can configure a custom integration.
Dashboards and Reports
After you configure Bot Defense, you can use the integrated dashboard and reporting functionality to view detailed information about the traffic that Bot Defense analyzes. For example, use the Bot Defense Dashboard to view and filter traffic and transaction statistics and to see which traffic is malicious and how that traffic was mitigated.
You can also configure Automated Threat Briefings to deliver insights to you automatically each month, while additional dashboards provide you with instant, detailed access to analysis of your data.
