The internet is crawling with bots, some good, some malicious. Bad bots can be used to launch mass-scale attacks on online businesses to steal usernames and passwords, take over accounts, and illegally scrape data to sell to unauthorized third parties. Arkose Bot Manager detects malicious bots using network information, IP addresses, and more, then stops them in their tracks using proprietary CAPTCHAs that are more sophisticated and gamelike (“Use the arrow to rotate the animal to face in the direction of the hand”) than usual. “This precise response strategy ensures genuine users proceed without interruption,” says Ashish Jain, chief product officer at Arkose Labs.
