Bot management for hosting providers
Protecting clients and saving on bot resources Best Practice for Bot Protection
“Automated traffic now makes up half the traffic on the Internet. However, the vast majority of that automated traffic is unwanted or potentially malicious. VerifiedVisitors allows web-hosting companies to save from 20-40% on their bandwidth and compute, while offering a managed bot service to their clients to help prevent malicious bots from hitting their servers in the first-place.”
Smaller companies often don't have dedicated resources to deal with cybersecurity threats, and often chose to rely on 3rd party cloud-based services to help control their infrastructure.
How WebHosting companies can save on bandwidth and system resource and offer their clients a valuable security benefit.
At VerifiedVisitors we have built a product that is radically different from any of the others in the marketplace.
Our managed service uses machine learning at it's heart to automate the entire process of managing and maintaining bot access and block lists. We've cataloged hundreds of commercial bot services, and ensured we have multi-factor authentication in place to verify each and every one of them.
Our API service allows you to set and forget your bot access list. Once you have selected the bots you actually want, all the updates and management occurs automatically. Our product then takes care of managing the ever changing allow and block rule set for the bots you do want, those you do not, and the fakes!
This allows web-hosting companies to offer a bespoke tailored service for each client's unique visitor profile, without the overhead and management expense.
Web-Hosting Case Study Overall savings of 28%
Typically web-hosting companies can cut down between 20-40% of their incoming traffic by excluding the bots they don't want.
One of our clients installed VerifiedVisitors across 55 websites of all types, ranging from e-commerce, to pure content based sites as well as informational and promotional web sites.
Each site was set up with it's customized VerifiedWatchList in place, and traffic was measure over a 30 days period.
Across all the sites the saving was 28%.
“I knew we had bot traffic and that it was affecting me and my customers. However, I didn’t really know the scale of it until VerifiedVisitors showed us, and it was a revelation. Their solution was so simple to implement and they immediately removed 28% of my overall traffic which was a mix of fake and unwanted bots. Removing this fake traffic improved the performance of our servers, and saved us on our bandwidth cost.”
