Barracuda Web Application Firewall

Advanced Bot Protection

  • Last updated on

Overview

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall Advanced Bot Protection (ABP) capabilities protect your web, mobile, and API-based applications against a variety of bot attacks. ABP uses a combination of on-box capabilities and cloud-based machine learning/artificial intelligence systems to detect advanced bots. This feature provides you with comprehensive insights into bot traffic over your web applications.

ABP provides multiple features that can be used to detect and block specific bot attacks. Some of these features are available on-box without the purchase of an additional license. Other features require the purchase of an Advanced Bot Protection license. The feature-license matrix below shows which features require an additional license:
