Barracuda has acquired bot mitigation technology from InfiSecure to expand advanced bot protection capabilities. InfiSecure specializes in low-latency detection and mitigation of advanced bots, and adds advanced capabilities to Barracuda’s recently announced Advanced Bot Protection which will be available for both the Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service and Web Application Firewall platforms.
This partnership will leverage Barracuda with a diverse set of data points from Barracuda’s Global Threat Intelligence Infrastructure with InfiSecure technology, to identify and block advanced bots, including low-and-slow bots. Machine Learning layer provides automatic and custom profiling of individual applications for optimal protection.
Every application is different, and each offers unique opportunities for bots. A generic bot detection methodology fails to address the specific bots written for different applications.
InfiSecure’s state-of-the-art machine learning layer provides automatic profiling of each individual application to provide application-specific bot detection and mitigation capabilities and help ensure the highest protection.
“This strategic technology acquisition further strengthens our application security portfolio and our commitment to provide application security to our customers,” said Tim Jefferson, SVP, Engineering of Data Protection, Network and Application Security, Barracuda Networks.
“InfiSecure perfectly complements our recently released Advanced Bot Protection and will bring next-generation capabilities to our WAF-as-a-Service and Web Application Firewall offerings.”
