    What is Bot Management?

    By determining in real time if an application request is from a fraudulent source, Bot Management can help protect both your web and mobile applications and your API endpoints from malicious attacks.

    If a request is detected as fraudulent, Bot Management will then block, redirect or flag it.

The solution can be deployed inline as a reverse proxy on-premises setup, which is hosted within Verizon’s data centers, or in a Verizon-managed public cloud. Bot Management can also be operated via the Verizon API.
