Here are 6 ways we keep ours:

Proactive Threat Detection

Arkose Bot Manager continuously defends against high-volume, automated attacks before they impact your business. Real-world threat intelligence and optimized, low-noise data sets—including device fingerprinting, anomaly detection, IP intelligence, behavioral biometrics, and email reputation—all underpin Arkose Bot Manager’s unrivaled ability to protect apps, sites, and their users from malicious bots.

Dynamic Enforcement Challenges

Arkose Bot Manager employs the defense capabilities of Arkose MatchKey, the strongest and most flexible CAPTCHA ever made, to actively capture and frustrate attackers in real time. While F5’s Shape tool has no native enforcement challenges, Arkose MatchKey deploys multifaceted puzzles to protect against bad bots, fraud farms, and reverse proxies. Expertly curated and dynamic rulesets tailored to real-world use cases and threat surfaces slow and trap attackers, miring criminals’ resources and removing the financial reward of an attack.

Flexible Deployment & Integration

With customizable rules and configuration options, Arkose Bot Manager can be tailored to industry- and business-specific use cases. The solution can be deployed in a variety of configurations across multiple content delivery networks (CDNs), with no-code, low-code, and SDK implementations for fast and easy deployment. Arkose Bot Manager is available with flexible commercial terms, including using credits from cloud platform marketplaces such as AWS.

Actionable & Transparent Data

In contrast to the simplistic pass/fail of other solutions, Arkose Labs offers full transparency with its data, including 125+ signals for clear and precise decisioning and to enhance downstream risk mitigation. This actionable data can be consumed wherever needed—in Arkose Bot Manager’s native Command Center portal, as a real-time log stream, via JSON API, or consolidated in your SOC’s own SIEM and SOAR platforms.

24/7 Expert Support

Arkose Labs’ Customer SOC is managed by bot mitigation specialists who provide 24/7 service and support. Their expertise and focus deliver immediate tuning, proactive monitoring, and real-time incident response. The Arkose team becomes an extension of the business, alerting and solving attacks before any impact, and leveraging multi-channel communications to keep you fully informed. This business impact is backed by SLAs and the industry’s first $1 million warranties against credential stuffing and SMS toll fraud attacks.

Global Intelligence Network

Arkose Labs operates a global threat intelligence network that collects and analyzes data and human intelligence from activity on the dark web and around the world. These proprietary signals enable us to stay ahead of technical advances and novel attacks, providing enterprises with real-time insights and proactive defense from evolving attack vectors and criminal behavior.

Arkose Bot Manager is an easily integrated platform with flexible no-code, low-code, and SDK implementations for rapid deployment and accelerated time to value.
