Radware’s new Fingerprint Technology to prudently shield Malicious Bot Attacks


Radware announces Attack Mitigation System; a cutting edge technology which prudently strengthens the protection from threats posed by advanced bots. This will further augment Radware to cater customers track end user devices without the need for Internet Protocol (IP) address.

On this announcement; Ashok Kumar, MD and CEO, RAH Infotech noted that  Bots generally plague businesses that conduct a high volume by exhausting application resources, scraping sensitive information from websites illegitimately and seeking vulnerabilities through application logic abuse. In order to protect applications from advanced bots or even collective human threats, website operators need more advanced user/client identification that can detect and block illegitimate users.

To address the growing security threats using bots and other traffic sources – Radware’s Attack Mitigation System has been enhanced with technology that can track and precisely detect malicious end user devices regardless of the source IP address.

The integration of device fingerprinting technology in Radware Attack Mitigation System, is claimed to be an award-winning solution to protect an enterprise’s infrastructure against network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, network anomalies, information theft and other types of attack.

Ben Desjardins, Director of Security Solutions, Radware says, “With the proliferation of devices driven by the Internet of Things (IoT) and users operating multiple mobile devices more than ever before, the challenge of device identification continues to increase exponentially. Our device fingerprinting technology gives online businesses a powerful tool in combating the threats posed by the difficulties of accurate device and user detection.”

Nikhil Taneja, Country Manager and Regional Director, India and SAARC Radware further added that  Device fingerprinting introduced in Radware’s Attack Mitigation System suitemakes use of proprietary tracking to generate device reputational profiles. These combined with other information based on behavioral history can be effective in the detection and mitigation of threats such as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), intrusions and fraudsters alike.

Device fingerprinting can also facilitate the identification of spiteful users accessing the Internet through Network Address Translation (NAT) devices that lead to many devices sharing the same IP address, and anonymous proxy services that make it gruesome to block IPs without potentially blocking legitimate users/devices.
