Standard bad bot protection blocks the most obvious bots. To fight more sophisticated bots, use Queue-it's innovative Proof-of-Work challenge and present users with Google's reCAPTCHA. For ultimate security, limit queue numbers to one per validated user, based on unique identifiers like a user ID or promo code.
Over 50% of blocked bots are attempting to simulate real users on a massive scale from one IP address. Soft-block suspicious traffic like scalper bots or DDoS attacks until you can determine whether it is legitimate or malicious traffic. Set up email notifications based on suspicious IP addresses and view logs of soft-blocked IPs in the admin platform.
Traffic from bots is becoming more prevalent on high-demand sales where secondary markets have high payoffs. Enhanced traffic analytics gives you insight into the quantity and quality of all traffic into the queue so you can adapt bot mitigation for your next sale.
Bad actors use sophisticated methods of attack, so your defenses must be just as sophisticated. You need a combination of tools tailored to bots’ diverse attack vectors. Queue-it works in parallel with Distil Networks to provide a combined, best-in-breed solution for abuse and bot protection.
