BotGuard GateKeeper

By: Botguard Latest Version: 1.3.0

Product Overview

The BotGuard GateKeeper is an all-in-one web app protection that safeguards your business from the full range of automated attacks and eliminates bad bot induced traffic. This state of the art, cloud-based, solution allows you to block bots, hackers and spam and grant unrestricted access for human users, search engines or affiliate automation tools to your website. Bots are at our core, but we offer much more. Our solution is an advanced reverse proxy that allows you to manage your inbound web traffic, protect your website from DDoS attacks and scale up your website without interruptions.

With our solution you'll be able to distribute network traffic across a number of web servers and increase both processing speeds and server capacity effectiveness. Mitigate traffic spikes that occur during atypical activity, like DDoS attacks, and assure that you can prevent any single server from overloading.

With the GateKeeper in place, the website doesn't reveal its origin server real IP address, making it harder for attackers to leverage targeted attacks against them as they will only be able to find that instance which has tighter security and additional resources to fight them. When using multiple instances of the GateKeeper, some of them may be hidden from attackers and left for legitimate visitors to use.

As our solution limits the number of concurrent connections and the request rate on a per-client basis, it helps to prevent website abuse and targeted server overload like the ones in a DDoS attack. In more complex cases, where a cluster is used, the attacker addresses are propagated throughout the cluster and filtered at the network stack of the operating system.

SSL operations are CPU intensive and can limit the server resources. With SSL offloading that process moves to the GateKeeper and frees up the web server. Our solution supports TLS 1.3 cryptographic and HTTP/3 (QUIC) protocols, being that in the first case it speeds up encrypted connections even more with TLS false start and Zero Round Trip Time (0-RTT) and the second has beer transmission speed, shorter loading times and a stabler connection for mobile users. All necessary security settings are included by default and our solution issues and renews all certificates automatically. Websites protected by the BotGuard GateKeeper receive an A+ rating from Qualys SSL Labs.
