Integrate ShieldSquare via our cloud connectors, web server plugins or virtual-appliance. Here’s how ShieldSquare proactively acts behind the scenes when a visitor visits a page on your website or mobile app.
Based on the exhaustive bot detection tests done on the previous activity of this visitor, our cloud engine classifies the visitor as a human, search engine crawler, or a bad bot. Based on the classification, if the visitor is a friendly entity (human or search engine crawler), then ShieldSquare transparently allows the user to pass by sending API response code as Allow. All of this is achieved in a few milliseconds without impacting user experience.
In the event of a bad bot, ShieldSquare sends the corresponding response code back to the application. Based on the response codes, you can implement actions like blocking the bot, challenging with a CAPTCHA, feeding fake data, etc. ShieldSquare, thus covers all routes and provides you the flexibility to choose a desired response to act against bots as per your business needs.
